Women’s Shoe-store

Jun 1, 2009 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: fashion and beauty

Emilda would love it. I have never seen a store that carries the largest women’s shoes collections. You can find all kinds of shoes for all events, purposes, styles and convenience. Looking for airport-friendly shoes? Yeah we really need one when we travel and go through the airport security procedures. It would help everybody in line. is the site I will buy my shoes because there I can find every style of shoes and sandals I want from the thousands on their stock, from athletic shoes to work boots and shoes.

The 2009 fashion

Jan 12, 2009 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: Uncategorized

According to the expert there are different trends of fashion in the year 2009. Fashion from head to toe or what we call in the medical terms cephalocaudal. I like to go on with the trend of style if it soothes my personal likes. Just like choosing shoes, I find a great place to buy stylish and comfortable Oscar de la Renta at Marrissa Collections. They do not only provide a wide range of selection of shoes but also designer clothing, handbags, accessories and many more. Check it out.

On a holy ground

Aug 27, 2008 Author: bluegreen butterfly | Filed under: arts and culture, Travels

I grew up in a tradition of leaving our shoes or slippers outside when we enter anyone’s house. For respect. And also to prevent dirt from coming into the house. But gone are those days (Spanish occupation in the Philippines) when rich hosts would let their servants follow your footsteps with a rag, that made the guests a ‘bit’ uneasy. In India, there is still this culture of respecting the ground you walk on, especially those old ‘sacred’ structures by way of being barefooted or covering the shoes. This man’s job is to see to it.  Somehow, when I recall those places, I always remember that man by the entrance putting visitors’ shoe covering. It’s a noble job.

Wooden shoe-making in Netherlands

PhotoHunt 98: Wooden
These are some of the photos I took in Netherlands during our trip last October. These are in the countryside where life still rolls with the wooden shoes and windmills. The wooden shoe factories gained it’s reputation across the world and gathered display collection as far as Korea and Japan. One thing with wooden shoes is that they warm the feet when its cold and cool the feet down when its hot.
