Acne pistol boots


I know, I know. I come 3 years too late. They also cost a limb. There are great alternatives (and I own one, the TopShop Mighty model). BUT (capital letters), I decided to have less quantity and more quality in my closet this year AND I sold 3 pairs of shoes and saved up to get the real thing. Cut a long story short, I ordered my precious on the Acne site, and I tore my hair out for a week, following the UPS reports of my boots traveling from Sweden to Norway, then to Germany, to end up in Paris, then Montpellier... And my mistake was to have found out that they size a bit too large, so I took a size down, and when I tried them on, I had an interrupted shoegasm. If the size was perfect, they were too tight on the ankles (I'm 5'7" for a size 5, which is pretty small for my size, I should have ordered my size and wear them with soles). Gutted as I was, I found a pair my size on the Far Fetched site, hoping they don't transit via China or Argentina this time... And I'll send the small pair back to Acne, because I don't want to wait for another week to get my boots!
I have really bad existential problems, don't you think?

Je sais, je sais, j'arrive 3 ans trop tard. Elles coûtent également un rein. Il y a des ersatz fantastiques (dont un que je possède, le modèle Mighty de TopShop). MAIS (lettre capitales), j'ai décidé de privilégier la qualité à la quantité dans mon armoire, et j'ai vendu 3 paires de chaussures et économisé pour me les offrir. Pour vous la faire moyennement brève, j'ai commandé mes précieuses sur le site d'Acne, et je me suis arraché les cheveux pendant une semaine à vérifier le suivi UPS et voir mes boots partir de Suède, transiter par la Norvège, puis l'Allemagne, Paris et enfin Montpellier... Mon autre erreur a été d'entendre qu'elles taillaient grand, j'ai donc pris une taille en dessous, mais lorsque je les ai essayées, chaussurus interruptus! Si la taille était parfaite, elles serraient trop aux chevilles (je fais 1m70, alors un 37, ça fait vraiment petit pour ma taille, j'aurais donc dû commander ma taille et les porter avec des semelles). Dégoûtée que j'étais, j'ai trouvé une paire sur le site Far Fetched, et j'espère qu'elles ne vont pas transiter par la Chine ou l'Argentine cette fois. Je vais renvoyer l'autre paire à Acne, car je n'ai pas envie d'attendre une autre semaine!
J'ai vraiment des problèmes existentiels sérieux, non?

  18. Même si elles coûtent un bras, j'ai remarqué que les belles chaussures (souvent très chères, il faut l'avouer) sont un très bon investissement : non seulement elles donnent du cachet à l'allure, mais en plus elles tiennent beaucoup plus longtemps. Pas toujours, mais dans la plupart des cas quand même.
