i'm rarely in the alabang area, so when i am i try to drop by alabang town center and go straight to tutto moda. you never know what SSI bargains you might find there (and i have!). but it was crazy trying to get to the mall because they had closed off most of the parking around it! waaaahh... so there was a queue into what looked like the only entrance to the only parking, and we were trapped in it. (if only we had known that bellevue actually has a shuttle that can drop you off there, then we would've checked in first...) but the agony was well worth it because i scored! not at tutto moda, though. no exciting bargains to be had there. but rustan's was having a sale, so i decided to swing by the store, ready to be disappointed. well, look what i bought at the shoe section:
black patent ankle boots by FS/NY (a label under french sole). very cool, very beatle-esque. original price: P13,500. sale price: P2,025. that's 85% off!!! it's practically free!!! now i can't wait till fall... or at least a rainy day :-)
sale ends jul 31.
