Reader's Nook: On Rainboots and Plueys

Heyah everyone! The weather's been crazy in Manila, with heavy rains pouring nonstop. I really hope that everyone's safe, the photos in FB and the news are truly heartbreaking. :( I had my share of misfortune last night, as I stood soaked in heavy rain for more than an hour waiting for a shuttle home. But who am I to complain when some people have more than wet clothes to worry about, right? 

On a lighter note, I received a timely query from one of my gorgeous readers, Ms. Maria Christina Martinez, and it reads:

Hi Dang,

Hope all is well.

I am a big fan of your blog!!! :) I've been reading it for years, although I'm more of a lurker (don't comment as often as I read).

I do have a question. I've been googling local blog reviews on Plueys when I remembered your blog entry. I'm not sure on what size to get. Which leads to my the size of your Plueys your current size, or is it a size up from your usual shoes and shoe size?

Thank you so much for your time and attention :) I wish you & your blog the best!


First of all, thank you dear Crissy for the warm note. I love receiving messages from my readers and online friends. :) To answer your question, I got the next bigger size and did so for two reasons. First, it provides room for thick socks, which you might need for comfort and extra warmth, and second, because upon research and queries from the sellers, I learned that Plueys are really meant to be a bit bigger - they are cuter that way! :)

Just to add, I've had my Plueys for a year already, and they are still fine and mighty. The only slight concern is that Plueys and rain boots in general are a bit heavy so better to change into your indoor shoes once you're in your offices. I tried to wear it the whole day in the office for outfit's sake and I had sore legs by the evening. Haha. 

I hope I answered your question, Crissy! I also wish you get the best booties for you. It's a must these days. :) If it's your first pair, then I suggest you get something simple and classy, so it fits any outfit. You can get bolder with your next pairs.
