It was shoe heaven at HW X Melissa shopping event recently.
Our lovely Her World readers showed up at a exclusive private event held at Melissa’s flagship store at Raffles City on Dec 7 and went away with happy buys and goodie bags as they enjoyed discounts of up to 15 per cent.
Now, you might think 15 per cent is not a big deal. But here’s why we think otherwise.
Melissa is one of the few brands that releases its Spring/Summer collection in advance, unlike other brands that roll theirs out in stores only in the early part of 2018.
(L-R) Soho sandals ($135), Melrose sandals ($135), Dubrovka oxfords ($160), Soho sandals ($135), Dubrovka oxfords ($160), Melrose sandals ($135), Ulitsa sandals ($120)
For the Brazilian brand, spring looks are up for grabs in Singapore as early as December. And they call it the Mapping collection. Named after destinations around the world, this collection consists of very wearable platform sandals, slip-ons and oxfords that are high on comfort.
So for our savvy readers who got their hands on one (or two or even four) pairs of shoes at a sweet discount from this new collection - what a steal!
At the two-hour shopping affair, readers got treated to yummy finger food and cockails served by the good-looking chaps from Luxe catering. There was also a postcard booth where readers could write a postcard to anyone anywhere in the world and Melissa would post it out for them.
On top of coveted buys, readers walked away with a goodie bag each that included a $10 shopping voucher, which they could use at the event on the day itself on top of the discounts (score!), and a Melissa tote bag.
We hope our readers went home happy campers and we’ll see you in 2018 for more shopping events like this.
