Regine Velasquez has a *ton* of shoes, and she has a story for each pair.
In her latest YouTube upload, Regine gave viewers a peek into her massive walk-in closet, which holds what looks like thousands of shoes. From sky-high stilettos, slip-on wedges, to platform shoes, Regine probably has it all.
Holding a special memory for each piece in her collection, Regine had to share a particularly unforgettable one about how she acquired a pair of designer shoes.
She was in New York at the time for a tour, and she was super excited to drop by that luxury brand's store there.
"And when I got there, nakita ko na!" Regine recalled. "Nandoon sa display! Sa umpisa pa lang, sinabi sa akin, wala akong size. Sinabi ko, 'Can I at least try them on?'"
Regine's heart totally sank when the store attendant said she couldn't. "Na-discriminate ako, ang lola niyo," she shared. "So na-depress ako nang very, very [slight]."
Spotting another designer shoe store right across LV's, Regine went on a shopping fit. "Nagwala ako doon," she remembers. "Ang ending ko, ang inuwi ko ay 20 pairs ng shoes. Kasi na-depress ako, so 20 pairs."
Regine recalls how happy she made that one store attendant who offered her assistance.
Returning back to the first store with her 20 shopping bags, she was allowed inside and she finally got to purchase the runway collection pair she was eyeing.
At the end of the day, Regine has this piece of advice to anyone who has similarly been discriminated: "It's okay. I don't think you should feel bad 'pag nadi-discriminate ka. You should go back and kick some ass!"
Way to go, Regine!
