My company's Christmas party.
The last major celebration before the year ends.
A celebration of good work, camaraderie and...good taste.
Yep, it's that time once again when I have to look my best. Not that I don't try on a daily basis. Haha.
But this is something special. You know what I mean.
So anyway, I never did really have the chance to plan my final get-up since I was so busy with work.
Admittedly, I was pressured. At the back of my head, I know my staff would be dressed to kill.
I must do something about it, I told myself.
So I hurriedly rummaged through my closet and found a cute checkered polo which I haven't worn yet.
Perfect. Thank God for my shopping impulsiveness. Hehe.
I scanned a few more minutes and found a new pair of jeans.
Great. The odds are in my favor.
And now for the shoes.
I looked around and saw a box at the corner of my bed.
"Thank you Lord for guiding me during Christmas SHOEpping!" , I silently prayed.
I opened it excitedly and boom! There were fireworks. Hehe.
The pair was a perfect match for my polo.
I hurriedly took it out of the box and marveled at its beauty.
It's the newest pair from Adidas: the Adidas ZX 800 Casual.
I actually got it a few days before as a Christmas gift for myself. Thank God (and Adidas) for the 40% discount, I was never guilty of getting the pair at P 3,177 (original price: P 5,295) from the Adidas Lifestyle Store in Trinoma, alongside others (now that's a teaser).
I chose to have this chalk/ligoni/sesame combination instead of the orange and brown one because it reminds me of wintertime. Perfect for the holidays with its resemblance to a pair of snow shoes.
The material, a combination of soft leather, gamuza and rubber gives it an edgy look. The cute laces (in chalk and aqua colors) contribute to its already fashion-forward look.
Surprisingly comfortable too, maybe because of the soft cushion inside.
Inspired by my new pair, I decided to try something different for the first time.
I tucked in my pants inside my shoes so I can show off my pair even more.
Here's a picture of me doing a last minute shopping for an exchange gift at Forever 21:
My pair never did fail me. They did get the well-deserved attention.
I lost count of the number of times I was asked where I got the pair.
So that's more than enough justification. I did make the right decision.
Of celebrating Christmas in my Adidas ZX 800 Casual. :)
