So a few days ago I received a much awaited parcel from BANK in the mail and and due to my impulsive nature and lack of patience I all but ripped it open to reveal the faux leather jacket and the amazing heeled boots I’m wearing in the pictures above.
The faux leather biker jacket is from one of BANK’s in-house brands; Ribbon and I honestly do wish I had gotten it a lot sooner! It’s length is longer than the norm for most leather jackets so it ends just above mid-thigh for me, a factor that had increased my adoration for it. The outer material of the jacket is smooth to touch and quite soft whereas the inner material is more so sleek and even softer! The jacket doesn’t showcase a skin tight silhouette when zipped up but that’s because it allows one to wear layers with it if they so wished to without making the person look like they’re bursting at the seams. It’s been quite a chilly week and this jacket has definitely helped to protect me from the cold front so overall I think it would be a great investment to ones autumn/winter wardrobe! Also have I mentioned it looks great? (My mother wants one too now!)
Now for the boots, eurgh I love, love, love these shoes so much already. I’ve never been one to wear boots and if I were to purchase some they’d always be wedge boots or a sort with a really high heel. This was not the case for these ones. Originally I had wanted a really high pair of wedged sneaker like shoes from BANK but they weren’t in stock and I settled for the ones I now have. I am honestly so glad the others weren’t in stock! These boots are not only incredibly comfortable but they also look amazing with everything I own! Seriously speaking I could pair these with a maxi dress and add some dark coloured accessories/makeup and it would work (I have tried this, you have my word.)
I got the Clare Lace Up Boots – complements of another of BANK’s in-house brands; Blonde&Blonde, in a size up (so a size 6) because I aimed to wear really furry socks with them (and also because I saw that size 5 was out of stock on the website – I’m sneaky I know!) They legit fit like a charm, ever so slightly bigger than usual because of the increased sizing but when I wear them with socks I can hardly even tell. The block heel on the boots has won over my heart from all other past heels and I’ve worn these boots every day since I’ve gotten them! THAT should be saying a lot about their quality, comfort and endurance!
They keep your feet warm all whilst looking stylishly ultra retro grunge… Why haven’t you got your own pair yet?
Hope everyone has an amazing weekend!
