Question : Hi Sasha. Are those Top Shop gladiator jellies heavy? How do you wear gladiator sandals, can it be pulled off with jeans...?
Answer : Gladiator sandals can pretty much be worn with anything. Jeans, skirts, dresses... Though I don't think they would match any of our Malaysian traditional costumes, such as baju kurung, kebaya, saree and cheongsams. :) Because gladiator sandals are quite attention grabbing whether they are flat or high heeled, I recommend that they be worn with quite simple clothing such as like the olsen twins are doing in these pics. I have yet to try and wear ones that go up to the knee, mainly because I can't help but look at these pics of the Olsen twins and think to myself, "Tak rimas ke pakai kasut balut kaki macam tu?" But I should and will try to. Belum cuba belum tahu. Fashion is all about having a bit of fun and trying new things anyway.
And the TopShop ones are not heavy.
I envy all you readers in the UK. You have got huge TopShop and H&M stores there. Dah lah KL tak de H&M! I sedih lah... I totally missed out on all those fabulous designer collaborations with H&M such as Cavalli and Lagerfeld. Thankfully TopShop does bring in some of the Kate Moss collection here and we don't have to wake up at 4am in the morning to line up at the shop by 5am so that we can buy something like what happens in the UK. There are a few items in her current collection collaboration that I hope come down here, such as this black Victorian style tailcoat jacket. I like how it is slightly long in the back.
Hopefully... waiting, waiting... I asked them at the TopShop here if they are bringing it in and they said they don't know..sigh...
I tried on this dress but I think it's a little bit expensive. I'm hoping they still might have on in my size left during sale time.
From the same collection I already have this jacket which looks great with everything.
I also have this leather jacket and the black version of the one shoulder dress from her previous collection. I managed to get the jacket at 50% during sale time. I was so happy!
And how I wish I could get the red dress like what she's wearing here during the launch of her first collection.
Just have to wait and see.
