Melissa Memories: Rock Princess in White

This is a delayed post. 

A few weeks ago, I was with a friend of mine excitedly waiting for the doors of Trinoma to open. Yes, we were there a little before 10 am on a Saturday to avoid the crowd and other bargain hunters like me lol

Our first stop, Geléia. It is located on the 2 / F Level near Mindanao Wing (901-1619). I saw several ballet flats on sale but I settled for Rock Princess, in white, of course!

I just called the store earlier this week, I learned about the sad news, the shoes is back to its original price (PhP 2,895). Good news for me because I got it at 30% off! ; p But my happiness didn't last that long, find out why after the break...

A few years ago, to add to the Melissa experience, the decision was made to infuse all Melissa shoes with a sweet bubblegum smell. The smell will not last forever - but it does remain for quite a few months and is one of the most talked about features of Melissa. - SOURCE

I had difficulty walking after a couple of hours though. This is definitely not a walking shoes. After removing the shoes, I can still smell the bubblegum scent on my feet ; ) Nice!

I saw this tear near the strap after a single use

While taking photos for this blog post, I notice a tear on one side of the shoes. I am so upset. All I thought was "There goes my money down the drain!" If I remembered it right, I wore this at a friend's birthday party and I was seated the whole time.

I am afraid the tear might get worse so I didn't use it ever since. I wonder what remedy I could do with it? I have tried calling the store where I bought it and was advised to write an email which I did but then I got no reply ; ( 

I supposed I should not have bought the one on display, huh? This really bummed me out. If I knew that this will break after one use, I would not have bought it. Good thing, I only bought one and I didn't buy the more expensive ones ; p

not for walking

I still love the style but I wish Melissa could do something with the quality of the shoes. After all, this is an expensive plastic shoes to begin with. 

Do you have any good / bad experience with your Melissa shoes? Kindly share it here.
