I found Charles & Keith at Grand Indonesia. I have never even heard of the brand before (because I usually don’t fall for brand names), so I didn’t know about Charles & Keith. The reason why I learned about Charles & Keith was because the store had up-t0 70% off sales and it was packed full of women the day I was there. Since it was the first time I saw so many people in a store, I could not resist my curiosity to check it out. I’m becoming like my mom. She always loves to check out a store with a crowd. There must be something good going on, right?
I walked into the store crawling in the crowd while dodging the people, trying to find the shoes I like. At the same time, I tried to keep my little monkey 3-year-old daughter trotting behind me like a little mouse close to me (my husband was in another store with our first daughter). It was exhausting and even though I spent a good 20 minutes or so there, I couldn’t find anything because people trying out so many sandals made a big mess in the store. My husband and our girls was getting tired and it was getting late, so we went home.
Several days later I went back and found the above items. I highly recommend going to a store on a weekday. So much calmer and easier.
I love the silver sandals. They are not as easy on my feet. I am not used to wearing tall high heels and my feet are kind of wide, so the sides with straps hurt some. They wouldn’t stop me from wearing them because I love the look of the sandals.
bag: Charles & Keith (Rp. 299,000 on sale (US$30))
I fell in love with this silver purse. Kids seem to get drawn to touch the scale looking silver sequins. I hope the sequins will stay on there for a long time. I need to be careful with my purse.
The black sandals above are not my usual style, but I like the funkiness about them and the soles being not so steep. They are easy to wear even though their heels are pretty high.
If you want a cool designer’s shoes with reasonable prices, you must check out Charles & Keith. Charles & Keith was originally created in Singapore.
Are you looking for shoes in Jakarta? Check out Cilandak Town Square (CITOS)!!
I went to CITOS (pronounce CHEE-TOS) with my family today because my friends here recommended it. CITOS stands for Cilandak Town Square. Until today the only “chee-tos” I knew was the orange cheese flavor snack, Cheetos, but now my favorite “chee-tos” is this Shopping Mall!
Anyways, there is a department store inside the CITOS Shopping Center called “MATA HARI”. The second floor of MATA HARI is women’s fashion and there is a HUGE section for women’s shoes. Unbelievable selection. So far, it is the best shoe store I’ve been in Jakarta. If you are looking for a pair of sandals, do try CITOS. If you want to go to CITOS, try to get there in the morning to avoid the traffic going down there.
Long simple earrings give a little dressy look.

Cilandak Town Square (aka CITOS)
Go down south on Jalan Fatmawati. Take a left onto Jalan TB Simatupang (many call this just Simatupang). Gandaria City will soon show up on your left. It is a very colorful shopping center with bright colors like yellow, blue, red and orange. You won’t miss it.
The fabulous shoe section is inside the MATAHARI Department Store located on the 2nd Floor.
