I personally love unboxing blogs and videos especially when it comes to designer items. I think it’s a really nice way to consider an investment and inspect items in detail. I’m a sucker for high end bags and shoes; I change my wardrobe so often that I never invest in clothing trends, always sticking to the high street, but classic accessories last a lifetime and really up your style game even if the rest of the ensemble is basic.
I wanted to invest in a seasonally transitional boot that would add a masculine vibe to Spring/Summer dresses and compliment my Autumn/Winter wardrobe. The only thing holding me back was whether to go with gold or silver hardware; I felt sticking to one would restrict my wear because they wouldn’t match certain accessories. Balenciaga’s punk inspired boots are punctuated with two tone buckles and cutouts meaning they’re perfect. Crafted in Italy from black glossed leather, the supportive chunky sole is comfortable and the cut out is super sexy, feminine and flattering.
When it comes to bags Tom Ford is one of those designers I constantly drool over. I wanted to invest in an everyday classic style bag with gold hardware and the medium ‘Icon’ tote ticked every box. The structured style is divided into three internal compartments and finished with sleek gold hardware that won’t lose it’s shine. The industrial style zipped flap pocket which fits your phone and inner flap TF logo scream sophistication and the long strap means you can also go hands free, changing up the way you wear the bag.
