My latest purchase was two Public Desire boots that was shown on my Instagram, one I received and one is on pre-order until October 5th. My first impression of the brand was that they’re fun, different, and trendy! I was originally drawn to their perspex heels, tortoiseshell, mirrored and glitter block heels. The brand also offers a 10% student discount and 20% off for signing up for emails along with constant sales!
After receiving my Elva Mirrored Heel Ankle Boots in Grey Velvet I was pleased and slightly disappointed. The packaging was perfect, even after being shipped from the UK there was only a small amount of damage on the box. The velvet looked even better in person and was more of a blue than grey. The shape of the boot was form fitting and true to size. Upon trying them on and walking around a bit the side zipper tended to fall and bunch around my ankle. The velvet fabric fit my leg perfectly and provided lots of stretching, but also fell easily. The boots are fairly comfortable, but the discounted prices can be seen in their quality.
Overall I would purchase from this brand again because they are so fab and different from the norm. I would like if the quality was better and would not walk around all day in these. But this is to be expected from fast fashion. You get what you pay for. I am eager to see if their back zipper booties and more structured shoes fit the same way!
I was originally drawn to the brand because of these (previously sold out) booties. What do you think? Do you indulge in fast fashion even if you have to sacrifice quality?
