Bargain Hunter

Yay my new Charles David shoes from Amazon finally arrived! Who knew that Amazon sells shoes too eh? The best part is I got them for $30 marked down from at least a $100!! So cheap right? Free shipping too muahahha. Very pleased with my purchase. It's been a while since I've done any shopping. Was too obsessed with wedding planning and became quite frumpy for a while. But I'm back on track!

Love the shoes, only dissapointing thing is that it's made in china (but what do you expect for $30). Stuff made in china just seems so mass produced and of poor workmanship. Apparently many companies are moving their operations to China due to lower cost. Of course the savings aren't passed on to us consumers. What were you thinking? Duh! It's hard to find mid-range designer shoes/bags not made in China for less than $300! Kate Spade, Cole Haan, Coach ... all made in china!! **@*#!! ... but back to the shoes.

So cute! And the heels make my legs look longer :)

Is it really worse when it's "Made In China"? I haven't really quite found out if it really is... but at least I guess with the brand, you can be more assured that it's been QC-ed at least. I hope! ha! At least you've got a better Returns Policy where you are :)

One thing I've learnt about Electronics stuff like Canon cameras is that the first batch of a product tends to be made in Japan, for market testing. Subsequent batches are outsourced to other countries for the cost. Heard that from a dealer... not verified tho!

gracie - i have flat feet too! (no arch to speak of) but I am vain and I force my feet into all kinds of torturous shoes haha

matreshka - actually MIC quality is decent lor. only thing is when you're paying hunreds of dollars (imagine their margin! hah) for these things, the wokrmanship is not at the level you'd expect.

i didn't know that! wonder of the made in japan ones are better haha. but i'm not really into electronics so I won't know hehe. can work can liao

cute!!! I want some red shoes too now!! lol. you have to admit though, that not *all* of the designer labels shoes are made in china. i had two pairs of coach shoes that were made in Italy, but then again...they were from last year, so maybe things have changed. my new j.crew boots were made in Italy too. there's hope yet for non-china shoes!! :)

mini said...

oh u're right ... i actually have a pair of coach pumps and boots from last season that were made in italy :) one has to keep a good look out when buying these things!

btw I love the new jcrew shoe collection. all made in italy (i checked haha)! gorgeous ...
