How to choose the best shoes for your workout

The (sometimes) frugal fashionista strikes again!

I debated writing this post because I feel like I’ve found a golden nugget, and don’t want to spread the word too loudly. Heaven forbid I go back next time and don’t find what I found the other day.

Nahhhh, I’m a generous person who believes in karma – so here’s the scoop!

I’ve completely discovered and fallen in love with Centrepoint at Bahrain City Centre. I’ve lived in Bahrain for almost two years, and last week was the first time I forced myself to go in. I can’t even remember why. I think I heard they were having a sale on candles, and hey, I love candles, so why not check it out?! Sometimes, I’m amazed at how easygoing I am, not to mention open-minded, when it comes to a little retail therapy.

I was never all that intrigued by Centrepoint because their display windows are really targeted towards young families, but inside the shop is a plethora of brands, departments and general variety – with out-of-this-world sales – you can’t leave without something, whether it’s for you, your family, or your home. I don’t have kids, so it’s still all about my hubby and me, but he more or less accompanied me by force.

Generally, the clothing and shoes didn’t thrill me by any means, but they were having a 24-hour sale this past weekend, and shoes have an amazing way of calling to me for a quick look-see.

Low and behold, there they were – stunning KG by Kurt Geiger and Carvela heels, just one of each pair – IN MY SIZE!!! I mean, is that meant to be, or what? The best part? BD 19.95 EACH. HOLY GUACAMOLE WITH EXTRA AVOCADO!

These shoes retail for over BD 100 each, and honestly, I’m in love. I’m not really one to care whether or not they are from last season, so if you are, then this post isn’t for you. BUT, if you love designer-wear, and you LOVE a great deal for great quality, then drop your laptop and head over to Centrepoint STAT!

Here are my new beauties…
