As a woman, I have a love affair between shoes ~ and bags. I still have to think about what weighs more in my heart. Although logic should easily tell us you wear your shoes wherever you go, but a bag is something you can leave sitting on a chair or desk. So yes, shoes will always be a practical option. Just ask Madam Imelda Marcos 😀
Being a shoe lover, I was quite thrilled when the company behind VNC shoes (through their publicist First Tier) invited women-bloggers to view their latest collection. I haven’t been attending blog events lately, but this was one I couldn’t resist. VNC is one of my favorite brands. In fact, my preferred pair these days is this VNC strappy sandals I bought for a little more than P1K at a recent sale in MOA.
The predominant shoe color in my closet is black, but a review of VNC’s spring-summer collection shows that bright colors are “in.” And yes, they do have bags too!
Love the Chanel-style pink bag in the background. The average price for their items are between one thousand to two thousand pesos ($30 to $50) but what’s good is they always have sales and promotions. The last we saw was “Buy two items and get the third at 50% discount” – definitely an open invitation to commit shoetunny (
the counterpart of gluttony) – if there ever was such a thing.
VNC designs are funky and cool, with catchy details like the buttons on these wedge sandals. They’ve got the most lovable flats too.
It’s a pity. The mainstream shoe market in the Philippines is being flooded by cheaper, more fashionable counterparts from Asian neighbors. VNC is a franchise of Malaysia’s leading shoe brand, Vincci. Their presence here (since 2003 yet!) ensures that we don’t have to fly all the way to KL to buy those must-have fashion for our feet.
VNC branches are located in Robinsons Galleria, Glorietta III, Robinsons Manila, SM Mall of Asia, SM Megamall, TriNoma, Alabang Town Center, Shangri-La Plaza Mall and soon to open in Eastwood Mall this month.
