Sunday Steals: Acne Pistol Short Leather Boots on a Budget

Mon doux, in the left corner you will find Acne’s celebrity-adored Pistol Short Leather Boots – the very same ones seen gracing the fancy feet of Keira Knightley, Clémence Poésy, and Rachel Weisz; in the right corner take a peek at Bronx’s perfectly similar Zip Heeled Ankle Boot.

Though the Bronx beauty features a slightly higher shaft and a color that is more matte than that seen upon its Acne counterpart; for just $215.64, in comparison to the $560.00 needed to snag a pair of le pretty Pistol; they are every bit as capable of firing up one’s wardrobe – at a price that no fashion-forward frugalista can resist!

So mes chéris, what are you up to today? Will your AmEx take a beating with a splurge, or will you stay safe and thrifty with a frugal buy?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to Net-A-Porter and ASOS for the pictures.

As long as I could water proof those babies, I'd definitely go for the cheaper ones. Perfect for winter here.

I´d take the Bronx. I love that its cuffs are higher, which accommodates more of jeans. :)
