Review: Sam Edelman Gigi Sandal

Review on Sam Edelman Gigi Sandal as seen on Jessica.


  • Adjustable buckle closure with inset elastic.
  • Synthetic upper, lining and man-made sole.
  • Heel measures approximately 0.5″

The first time I saw Jessica with these sandals I was surprised over how stylish and affordable they were and I decided I needed to get my hands on these for summer!

These sandals have quickly become my go-to sandal ever since I purchased it, as they are incredibly versatile and I have personally found that they go well with many outfits and are easy to put on.

Normally, I am reluctant to purchase thong-like sandals because they can get uncomfortable after a while (especially in between the toes, if you’re walking for a while!) but if there is one thing Sam Edelman exceeds in with these flats is comfort. I did not find any discomfort induced from the straps after walking around the city for a long time, furthermore the sole was surprisingly comfortable and didn’t leave me with foot aches.

However, the one thing negative thing to comment about these sandals are its size. If you have a wide feet I would highly recommend that you double check on return policies if buying online or have a good walkabout when trying them out in the store. The sandals are a bit on the small side in terms of width and you may find (as I did) the outside sides of your feet may get a little sore as the sandals do not accommodate for the width of your feet.

What you are paying for:

  • Versatility
  • Comfort
  • Quality

Review: Phillip Lim Ribbon Silk Chiffon Top
POSTED IN Reviews, Sooyoung | TAGGED:

Review on 3.1 Phillip Lim Ribbon Silk Chiffon Top as seen on Sooyoung.

We all know that Sooyoung is one of the fashionistas of SNSD. When I saw her wearing this ribbon silk chiffon top by 3.1 Phillip Lim, I was drawn by how unique and interesting it was. Phillip Lim plays with balance and symmetry by making the ribbons longer on one side. The hanging ribbons give the shirt a quirky feel and therefore, are the main details.

The material really is 100% silk (just the trimmings are cotton), so the shirt feels fine and delicate. The fitting is boxy/straight, which adds to the cool and casual theme of the piece. Someone who prefers curve-hugging and girly designs might not be satisfied with this shirt.

The only complaint I have is that the ribbons constantly move around, so they don’t stay perfectly in line. They often stick to each other and 2 different ribbons become one. It can be quite a hassle to arrange them frequently but its uniqueness and fine quality make up for it.

I would really recommend this piece by 3.1 Phillip Lim as long as you’re willing to sacrifice comfort to arrange the ribbons. It is a shirt that screams “designer” and “expensive”. People passing by will take a moment to look at this shirt because it is peculiar in an interesting way.
