A little over a week ago, I had an opportunity to attend Aldo’s Shoefie Party. You might have seen my Instagram story, I managed to catch their Winter 16-17 collection, and meet with other bloggers, and influencers. That was fun. Thanks for a great evening ALDO, Ritz Magazine & Aruna Krishnan! I needed that break between exams.
I figured this post was long overdue (due to numerous other commitments), but we can consider this as my official reentry to the blog sphere, a revival of sorts. I hope to keep this going. I have radical plans to fit the blog for a new mission. I’m excited to see where this could go, I’d love to have you all tag along on this journey as well.
Of course I had to choose shoes that would make a statement; this party was at ALDO, after all. I went with these Zara beauties.
A “shoefie” as we called it. I went with this clutch primarily because I didn’t have any other small bag.
A quick selfie before the event began.
Pro Tip: If you’re wearing tie-up sandals with pants, make sure the pants are cropped at the ankle so that the tie-up detail is visible.
Here’s a short overview of the collection (I had to make a graphic). It has lots of shoes that are meant to be worn beyond the Winter Season, in classic styles and neutral colours. Pops of red shone through the store. I spoke to the ALDO Brand representatives as well, who gave us some insight on how the collection will refresh as the months pass. Hint, it’s going to be fashion-forward, and on par with global trends– so keep going back, you don’t want to miss it!
Different shoe styles – sandals, pumps, and tie-up sandals too! – in a range of colours.
Masculine-inspired styles were carried forward through brogues & oxfords, but remain playful in metallic shades. The mini structured bags look so good too!
No such thing as Winter in Chennai anyway; these sandals are definitely worth picking up.
But the best part of the event was unarguably the time I spent with my fellow fashion bloggers from Chennai!
We couldn’t resist these fun photo props.
Neither did we stop from walking up to the gorgeous Shriya Saran for a group photo op…
Okay maybe not “a” group photo op.

Guess I’m “legitimately” famous now! With the lovely Shilpa from Frill Thrills.
