Bang Bang Pistols

So i've had my Acne Pistols for just over a week now....... IT IS LOVE!

The courier delivered this massive box wrapped with Net-A-Porter's signature ribbon...

... and I pulled them out for a look!

The quality of these boots is just amazing. They are fully leather lined and I can see them lasting for a really really long time if I look after them.

The sizing is a little out of kilter , the size 39 were way too big with my heel slipping as I walked so I ordered the 38s. They were initially very tight and though I knew the leather would stretch out width wise I was worried about the fit length wise. I bit the bullet and decided I would keep the 38s and now after wearing them out and about they are becoming much more comfortable. A 38.5 would have been perfect but alas they don't do half sizes. 

I was a little worried that they would give me a stumpy leg look but I don't think that they do. 

I was also worried they wouldn't look good with dresses but that fear has also been alleviated! 

I wish I had better photos to share but alas I am only one girl with a iPhone ha ha!

I'm very very happy with my purchase and I am glad to have finally crossed this of my list of lust!
