Via Venetto- The Heart and Sole of Value

Tuesday, May 08, 2018

    I've been to a lot of shoe stores in the past and finding the perfect pair seems a bit hard for my sensitive feet. I don't just consider the style but the comfort and value matter the most. In my search for the perfect pair of leather shoes that I'm going to wear on formal occasions, one name stands out- Via Venetto.

     Elegance in design is a timeless value, and this is not lost on the modern and sensible Filipina. She is stylish and has a knack for finding what is truly valuable in her every purchase. Accordingly, when shopping for herself, she looks for something that not only lasts but also highlights her inclination towards the tasteful and refined. After all, she has no time for things that offer a sense of false economy. Why Via Venetto has the heart and sole of value? Read more below :)

Via Venetto Fancy Festive Footwear Collection

Monday, January 01, 2018

     The holidays aren't over yet! For some, January is the continuation of the holidays for those who are too busy last December and have no time to set their reunions and parties that month. There are companies who will still hold their Christmas party this month.

     This means there are endless parties, celebrations, events, reunions, and of course, presents to wrap and unwrap. This season is one of the most hectic due to all the prep we need to make: shopping for presents and making sure we're dressed to impress during celebrations. One of the best remedies to the Christmas rush is to find that one pair of shoes you can use for all the shopping and celebrations you need to attend!

Via Venetto for For True Fa-shoe-nistas!

Thursday, October 26, 2017

     How do you define a fashionista? Being a fashionista is not about simply following the trends, it’s about wearing it, enjoying it, and working it. Whether it’s the latest look off the runway or a vintage throwback, a fashionista’s style is all about owning it. Can I say that Filipina fashionistas have practically unlimited choices when it comes to clothes and accessories? 

     Yes, they are because it's just a one-stop at their favorite boutique, or even a weekend market, which will present an abundance of choices for the ensemble. Needless to say, completing a fashionista look is a head-to-toe endeavor, with signature shoes as a style staple. That is where Filipino fashion icon Via Venetto truly shines. Know more about the brand's latest offering for a true fa-shoe-nistas after the jump!

OOTD: J's On His Feet

Tuesday, December 06, 2016

     Hello mommies! Here's another OOTD of my son Kenzo wearing his latest kicks- Jordan Eclipse BG. I want to share a short story why I'm a fan of Jordan shoes. When I was in high school, Nike released series of Air Jordans like Jordan 11, Jordan 12, and Jordan 13. I bought the first two because of their colors (combination of white, red, and black) that I really like. I wore those rubber shoes during P.E. days and when I'm wearing jeans and shorts. 

     Fast forward today, the styles that I've mentioned above became rare. I think the original Jordan 11 and Jordan 12 sells for more than Php 10,000 now. If you're a fan of Air Jordan prolly you have those iconic shoes in your collection. Nike Jordan offers a wide array of rubber shoes today and I'm confused with the styles and names of new releases I see in stores and online. The story behind Kenzo's Jordan Eclipse BG after the jump!

     If my memory serves me right, I've seen an old friend wearing Gola sneakers ten years ago. I was in college back then and in one of our unplanned meeting, he was sporting a brown sneakers with the word Gola printed on the lower side of the shoes.
