Today I wore my “everyday shoes”. They are the shoes I wear on rainy days, on dirty roads, for long walks and so on. Since they are black patent, they are easy to clean and the block heel makes them comfortable to wear for a long period of time. I got them last year at Pool Side, as a replacement for my last pair of black patent shoes and since then they have been worn about a million times….until the heel became loose a while ago – luckily the cobbler was able to fix it! What I like most about these is, of course, the heel which is decorated with crystals. It keeps them from just being another pair of “boring” black shoes.
Pool Side is another one of my favourite Japanese shoe brands, as they make lots of cute and affordable shoes with usually good quality. If you’d like to know more about them, you can visit their homepage here (the main menu is in English).
Worn with: Coat by Materia Milano, scarf by H&M.
Today I went to the national library in Tokyo – again! They do have a huge selection of books, but in my opinion using this library is such a pain! You can only use 3 books at a time and there’s loads of waiting time for everything: getting the books, getting copies (you’re not allowed to copy by yourself),…. and everything is über-regulated! I hope tomorrow is the last time I have to set foot in there! But, on the bright side, there were some plum trees in front of it which were already starting to bloom – they’re so pretty 🙂
Last up, a close-up of the shoes:
