SM Department Store Mini Haul

Can you believe that this is my first ever haul blog post in my almost a decade of blogging? It’s weird cos I love reading haul posts or watching haul videos on YT. But it also justifies cos I’m not really a frequent shopper and I only shop when I needed something or whenever I stumble a really cute item that’s within my budget. Self-control in shopping is a skill, agree? haha! Anyway, I bought these items a few weeks ago at SM Department Store using the Php 3,000 worth of Sodexo certificate given to me. There’s nothing really fancy with the items I bought but these are the basics that I believe should be part of every girl’s closet!

Parisian Elora in taupe

First on the list is this Parisian Elora flat shoes in taupe worth Php 599.75. FACT: Most of the shoes I own are sneakers and running shoes. I’m trying to think but I can barely remember the last time I bought a pair of toe-covered flats, aka doll shoes. I’m definitely a sneakers kind of girl but, this pair of parisian flats is nice to have cos it’s easy to pair with the kind of clothes I have at home. And hello, this is part of the basics! Why am I still explaining?! haha!

Parisian Nadine in Beige

Another one from the same brand is this Parisian Nadine shoes in Beige worth Php 699.75. I know, I know! They’re ALMOST the same color. On my defense, I supposed to be getting the nude pink one but it was already out of stock for my size. So I settled for this cos it’s one of the safest shade for shoes, at least for me. I had similar shoes like this before, almost the same color too. Loafers type of shoes are comfortable even during long walks, so this is a wise purchase.

Penshoppe Power Stretch Highwaist Jeans

I thought I needed a new high waist jeans cos I keep buying crop tops yet I only own a few highwaist jeans/shorts. This one is a Penshoppe Power Stretch Highwaist Jeans worth Php 999.00. I like its washed kind of design plus the stretchy material. The length is just right for me too. That’s actually one of the things I consider when buying jeans. I don’t know why most of the local brands sell shorter lengths for jeans. huhu! I’m not even thaaaat tall considering my 5’3″ height.

Darlington footcover

Bought two of this Darlington footcover worth Php 289.75 each. Who wouldn’t need socks anyway? Also, am I the only one who keep losing socks?! I don’t know where on earth these socks are going but they keep on missing! huhu!

WWW cap

Now we are down to the last item. This one is a WWW cap worth Php 279.75. I liked wearing caps these days especially now that my hair is shorter. My hair is not naturally silky straight if not rebonded. It has been a year since my last hair rebonding treatment, so the waves are now starting to get noticeable mostly at the back. I needed to blowdry or iron my hair to make it look more decent. But during days when I don’t feel like putting extra effort, then that’s when wearing caps come handy.

  • Uh. I am in love with the Parisian shoes especially the Nadine! I think their shoes are really comfy and really great! The items in your haul are really great too! Love the shade of the jeans.

    • I like Parisian cos it’s cheaper compared to other brands. I had a similar jeans before and I am guilty on overusing it, now I have a new one to abuse. haha.

  • Would love a Parosian Nadine shoes that’s color PINK. Your post reminds me that I have not been updating my wardrobe lately! πŸ˜πŸ˜‚

    • It broke my heart when they told me that they didn’t have stocks left for pink Nadine shoes. huhu! But this looks cute too anyway. Go shopping na!

  • I love the Parisian Nadine! I’ve been looking for loafers kind of shoes because I’m getting tired wearing doll shoes, and I want something new and less girly, like loafers. The cap looks cool, too. πŸ™‚

    • My goal is to buy a few more pairs of doll shoes, cos the one I bought here is the only doll shoes I own as of the moment, opposite as yours. haha! Loafers is definitely a must-have!

  • I absolutely love the cap!!! Perfect for instagram pictures!!! And I love your jeans too. I have a similar shade but different brand.

    And I can totally relate with socks! They’re like ballpens. Haha. They just love to disappear!

    • Thanks for liking the cap. The only problem is, it’s so prone to dirt. I have it stored somewhere so that dust/dirt won’t stick to it.

      I’m glad to know that I’m not the only one who’s experiencing the sudden disappearance of socks. haha!

    Seriously! Ang tagal ko ng hindi nakapagshopping talaga and I think I need to shop for this summer season! I love the shoes babe for casual and office look because it’s really comfy to use as well! Such a great choices! πŸ˜€ Hopefully, you could visit my blog as well! Have a great day!

    • When I bought these shoes, I was really eyeing for something I can use comfortably at work. I often wear sneakers at work, I like them. But I have dresses and skirts which I barely use cos I didn’t have shoes to pair them with. haha! I used to wear my white sneakers when I feel like wearing my dresses but my white shoes gave up on me already.

  • Gusto ko yung Parisian Nadine shoes! May favorite shoes ako dati na kamukha nyan pero nasira na. I guess this post reminds me to go shopping again! haha.

    • It’s a must-have shoes kasi. And bagay sya sa madaming outfit! Kaya I love it too! Summer sales are happening, perfect to go shopping. πŸ™‚

  • Love the shoes you bought and the jeans πŸ™‚

  • Am I such a tita for liking the socks the most? Sobrang need siya for me talaga. Hahaha! Same here. I don’t know why and HOW I keep losing my socks. And the cap, I’ve been trying to sport that look too, along with my prescription glasses I recently acquired. I’ve seen some cute designs from the dept store nga and I might buy one para may kapalit yung gamit ko.

    • Don’t worry, that’s my favorite too! Yan talaga ung priority kong bilhin, the others were just extras cos I still have credits left sa sodexo. And I ALWAYS buy darlington. haha! Okay na okay mag cap these days kasi super init! Very useful sya sakin cos I don’t often bring umbrella and medyo hassle din.

  • Ahhh, I love all of these! Definitely love your style πŸ’–
    Those loafers are to-die for and I love highwaist/mom jeans ☺
    I also love statement shirts and caps (I have so many custom-made, including jackets, lmao) πŸ’•

    xo, Gillan

    • Statement shirts are my go-to shirts for lazy days! I only have a handful of jackets, I have more scarfs cos they are inexpensive and easier to bring in the office.

  • I love the cap!! I don’t know why I’m so into them lately but they really are life savers especially when you do’t feel like fixing your self. Hahaha!

    • My hair is usually messy if I don’t do proper drying after shower. So, yes! Caps are life savers!

  • I’m kind of jelly at the moment and hoping that SM opens during holidays so that I can grab the jeans. Love your style!

  • I hate that period when your hair starts to grow and the waves/curls of your hair start to show! πŸ™ lol I like the cap, btw! I bought one from WWW recently too for the same purpose haha #rebondedhairproblems

    Little Miss Miera

    • I swear I won’t get my hair rebonded ever again. I’ll cut my hair again after it gets a bit longer. I’ll trim every now and then so the rebonded part of my hair will completely cut off soon. My natural hair, isn’t thaaat pleasing, but it’s better compared to how it looks like now. haha.

      • hahaha try Keratin treatment! It doesn’t make your hair stick straight but repairs damage hair. But be careful rin! I tried growing my hair out before then I bought a Metrodeal voucher for Keratin treatment and they ended up damaging my hair. πŸ™ So no choice I had to had my hair undergo Brazilian Treatment. Sayang sa money! Be wary of vouchers sa Metrodeal. Better to go sa trusted salon mo. πŸ™‚

    Congrats on the first haul! Ako never pa nag-ganyan kasi di rin ako mahilig sa shopping haha kung magshashop man, hindi madami kaya hindi rin mai-haul. Haha

    Same here, lagi ako nakakawala ng footsocks at di ko rin alam paano nawawala haha kaya bili tuloy ng bili. Haha. Gusto ko din ng ganyang cap! Meron ako before pero winala ng kapatid ko kainis hahaha I think if I ever buy one black nalang para hindi dumihin. Hehe at bet ko yung shoes! Na-miss ko mga ganyang shoes. Puro sneakers/running shoes ako lately haha

    • Usually hindi din talaga madami mga binibili ko in one go, thanks sa GCs ko. lol! I tend to splurge more when I buy things online. Ewan ko pero psychologically, mas less guilty ako when I buy online kesa ung magbabayad talaga ako sa pysical counter. Mas masakit un sa feeling. haha!

      Dumihin sya talaga! Kaya I store it in a plastic pa before I hang it. Bibili pa ako ng iba ibang colors, gusto ko plain lang sana,

  • Parisian flats used to be my wardrobe staple. Every time I’m shopping for shoes, I always check their new designs because they’re stylish and affordable! What more can you ask for? πŸ™‚

    Love the cap, BTW! πŸ™‚

  • I love Parisian flats! Whenever I wanna buy shoes and sandals, sa SM agad ako tumatakbo! Matibay din kasi ang shoes nila and affordable pa! I-check ko nga yung caps nila, since I wanna buy one din kasi! Hehe
