Spree vs Steal: Pumps

I'm such a thrifty dress-up barbie. I love dressing up so much but I'm so kuripot that I frequent tiangge, ukay ukay, mall sales just to sustain my fashion addicition without burning my pockets. Hence, I'm really really excited to share to you the greatest "steal" I had so far.

My Nine West Black Patent Pumps

Yes you read it right. My greatest fashion steal is my pair of Nine West patent pumps! I bought this from an Ukay-ukay at Baguio. Would you believe that I got it for only Php 650 / USD 12.

SPREE: Nine West Proudly Black Patent Pumps: $89 = Php 3,800
From Php 3,800 to Php 650 = WHAT A STEAL!
I rarely buy shoes from Ukay (cause its really find a good one na maayos pa) but since this was one of the few ones that was in a VERY good, looks like new condition (and fits perfectly to my gigantic size 40 feet) and bought it without second thoughts! 
Sulit diba? :)

Anyways, I wore this pair for the first time to attend the birthday celebration of Paolo's dad at Tong Yang. Since it was a family affair, I wanted to sport a smart - chic look.

Bowed Down. Mustard colored top: Random from Eastwood Tiangge

Skirt: Random from Rockwell Bazaar 
Bag: Cousin's 
My outfit is filled with ribbons. Notice the bo on the back?
Bow collar :) 
Bow on the skirt
I had the fear that I looked young  and playful on this outfit but the boyfriend insisted that I was wearing a corporate attire. I think I looked like a school girl. HAHA!
Bargain top to bottom! Outfit hoarded from Bazaar and Ukay!
I find it very satisfying to pull off an outfit without spending too much money. I don't have that guilty feeling that I cutting down my savings. Do you feel the same way?
