So I’ve got my Topshop order today (everythings lovely, the flats are probably my most comfortable flats everrrr!) but the boots were too small. Does anyone have the same issue with Topshop shoes, that they are too small like 90% of the time? Anyways, so I checked online and they were already sold out one size bigger so I had to go to Oxford Circus to exchange them.
I hate that store. Don’t get me wrong – the store decoration, the stock, the variety… it’s all great but it’s just too much for me to bare! All those people and the music and the light and the colours! Phew! Makes me dizzy! Anyone know what I mean? I go through and think wow this is great – and that ! And that! And I never buy anything there because I just have that urge to get out as soon as I can!
Anyways, so I got the right size, am super happy and make my way back to the exit when I came across these (on the feet of a mannequin):
So they were spinning around in my head until I came home and I researched them, apparently they are a special edition from ages ago and around £200? Yeah whatever.
Apropos Pistol boots. I feel like everybody is lusting over those babes right now and only a few are able to pay the £360.00 for the real deal, so I was more than exited when I saw these while browsing:
You cannot deny the resemblence. I think they are just perfect and a style staple; not too high, simple yet with that certain touch. Now I am just hoping and praying that they will come back in stock! For comparison: These are the original Acne Pistol Boots:
There is also a brand called AKIRA that sell a similar pair for about £70 but I haven’t been quick enough and they sold out too! Arrrgh!
Which one do you prefer? Or do you think it’s all just a hype? Leave a comment and do tell!
