Bonjour! I admit I suck at French. It explains why I took Spanish as my minor in college but in the name of Parisian fashion, I may have an amour for anything that comes from Louis Vuitton land.  

Last Wednesday, I was fortunate to attend Bensimon Philippines' Parisian Affair with fashion stylists and people from the fashion/travel/lifestyle magazine world. The affair showcased colourful Bensimon sneakers. 
To be honest, I'm not a sneaker kind of person but there was something about their shoes that triggered me to make a paradigm shift. 
Their "perfectly imperfect" shoes attracted me so well because they were extra comfy and they're just right there telling you that "Hey, I can accompany you whenever, wherever!"
For someone who likes traveling, it fits perfectly like it was just made for me. 

Bensimon as a travel brand has a unique way of combining sophistication and functionality. Their Parisian handmade shoes will surely be inside the luggage of "The Style Diplomat" ;)

For this very effortless look, I paired my own Bensimon shoes with high waisted denim shorts and an off-shoulder. If Miley has some J's, I have my own Bennies.

Bensimon PH:
You can buy your own Bennies at Rustan's, Center of Gravity in Burgos Circle, Centris Mall and selected Shoe Salon shops

Because shoes speak louder than words and the fact that they walk their walk, this post deserves some shoe game change. 
This was really the pair of heels I used during the event and just decided to wear my Bennies after. 
If you could already tell, this is my latest favorite heels. One of the main reasons is because it is Balenciaga-inspired. Another reason is that it's just comfy to wear anywhere (just like my Bensimon sneakers, I swear!). I got them from Miss Selfridge and even though it was bit of impulse buying, there wasn't a time that I regret buying them. 
If you won't see me with my Bennies on, you'll definitely see me on these!
