What better way to celebrate my blog’s revival than to post a shoephoria entry! I’ve been on the hunt for this pair of adidas Originals Superstar since last year. The black and white ones are super hard to find because they’re selling like hotcakes. I could distinctly remember calling 3 different stores to leave my name + contact number on the waiting list but I was kinda pissed because I didn’t even get one call from the branches I called (Wow, redundant.)
After months of searching both online and offline, I found these babies in The Balikbayan Box Sale (TBBS) on Facebook!
A “balikbayan“ box is well-known in the Philippines as a box full of goodies sent by relatives abroad. It’s the same with TBBS but pieces from their store are handpicked and very well curated by their resident stylist. They offer a wide selection of brands from the US for clothes, handbags, shoes, and many more. Each week, they feature both popular and independent brands that’s currently in season.
I bought the sneakers through TBBS’s Shop It-Thru Us Service where you could purchase an item from any brand in the US to the Philippines without any hassle. You don’t even have to worry about the shipping, import duties, and taxes! Once your item arrives, TBBS will ship your item anywhere in the Philippines. How awesome is that?
Another thing I love about TBBS is that the owner, Ms. Cloe, is super nice and very accommodating. She’s very patient in answering all my questions and even my pangungulit about the shoes.
I’m still ecstatic because I FINALLY have the sneakers that I’ve been lusting over since last year. Isn’t she gorgeous? The main reason why I bought them is that they go with everything! Since my closet consists of mostly neutral colors and a few bold colored ones, they’re just perfect! Just imagine my reaction when the delivery guy from Xend gave the box to me. I was really dancing and kilig inside.
There you have it! Hope you enjoyed my “comeback” post. Please visit The Balikbayan Box Sale on Facebook and on Instagram. I promise, you’ll love them as much as I do!
