Givenchy Gladiator Bootie

Ever since the Gladiator Shoes trend started Summer 2008, almost every girl was rushing to get herself a pair. As we all know in the Philippines, trends here come a little later. Until now, people are wearing flat gladiator sandals fit for summer. It’s not bad at all because as we say “comfort is the key”. To match your fascination with everything gladiator, try this:

The Givenchy Gladiator Bootie available for PhP 50,000.00. Okay. I know what you’re thinking… “Oh no, not another gladiator.” Oh yes. When you’re as fabulous as Givenchy you can stand out from the crowd of trendy footwear. For me, gold is the best color because the black looks just so old school. Try something fresh. Try gold. The high heels just look great, don’t you think?

So ladies, update your look to match the Fall season. (We have this season in the Philippines too, you know.) Here are some suggestions on how to wear them gladiator booties:

  • wear with a black mini, white t-shirt, and flaunt your beautiful legs
  • wear with leggings/tights
  • this will compliment a feminine mini dress (Try watercolor dresses)
  • this will go well with long tunic top and skinny jeans

Some tips for you:

  • Remember that the shoes call a lot of attention to themselves, so don’t try to do too much. Dress around them with basics and neutral colors, otherwise you’ll look overly-trended.
  • If you have thick ankles or wide calves, choose a design that is not too chunky and not too dainty.
  • If you want to create the illusion of slimmer legs then match them with the same color opaque tights, to give a lean, fluid look.
  • You’re going to look good. So get ready…

Hope I was able to help. πŸ™‚ If you want bolder styles, try Balenciaga the originator of Gladiator Booties.

    Me too. πŸ˜€ Didn't buy the gladiator flats coz it makes me look really short and stumpy. Haha. These boots are so sexy. πŸ˜› I don't know if there are local counterparts… I'll scour the market. πŸ˜€

    I went to the mall today… Sadly, wala ako nakita. Delayed kasi fashion dito eh. Haha. πŸ™‚ Kahit sa mga korean shoes, wala. Although may nakita akong close to it. Pero di ko type. Haha. πŸ™‚ Try ko ulit tom. πŸ˜€

    Oh… I haven't entered Topshop and Zara yet. Oh yeah… I think I saw sa Topshop website something like this. Pero iba kasi available na shoes dito sa Philippines eh. The not so pretty ones ang available dito. Sa Zara wala… I checked nung weekend eh. Boo. We don't have the Office brand here. 😦 Ano meron dun?

    ay oo nga nung umuwi ako dyan i was so excited to check out Topshop sa MOA but ended up upset kasi di magaganda and iba yung mga jeans dun. ppftt! dito Zara ang gaganda ng mga shoes nila.. I've got brown leather boots na binili dun grabe ang ganda sobra but its also so expensive! pero ok lang matibay naman eh.. Office is really popular here and sa states. basically, they sell different brands of shoes pero lahat popular na brand from converse (classic na..) to UGG boots to killer high heel boots to shoes.. sandals.. maraming magaganda dun! :]

    I love the Zara here. πŸ™‚ Ganda ng shoes and uber comfy sa feet. πŸ˜€ Topshop not so much… And their sizes are kinda big for me the last time I went there. Kung lahat ng nasa site ng Topshop ay available dito, baka ang dami ko ng nabili dun. Haha. πŸ˜€ I know you love Topshop.Wow. Ang ganda ng Office. Daming choices ah. πŸ˜€ I'll check further tom… Hehe. But I bookmarked it na. Looks cool! Sana may ganon din dito. Btw, we're gonna have Steve Madden here. I want their shoes. πŸ˜€ Sana may Jimmy Choo rin dito. Kasi at least yun, affordable compared to Manolo Blahnik diba? Hehe. πŸ™‚

    Hehe. I like it better gold. πŸ™‚ Super fab tignan. I saw it on Pia Guanio too. But it's not Givenchy, I think. πŸ™‚ Grabe, sana makahanap na ako ng local version…

    Anything gladiator is unflattering for my legs. But I must admit, those glads are HOT. πŸ™‚
