First Impression | Matisse Footwear


Hey everyone! I’m so excited because this is my first collaboration/ ambassador work with a brand and I couldn’t be more happy that it’s with BitterSweet Boutique. I received a few pieces from the shop earlier this week and after posting the unboxing on my Instagram stories I was asked so many questions about the Matisse Caty Boots! I was bold and decided to wear them for the first time during a 12 hour day in LA that was full of walking. Now I understand why this brand seemed to pop up all over Instagram in a short amount of time and why other bloggers have been raving about them!


It took me about 15 minutes to decide what size to order. I’m typically a size 7 or 7.5 but read a lot of reviews saying to size up. Since these shoes rise higher and have a pointed end, both details that my current boots don’t have, I even debated getting a size 8 because there were a lot of comments about the top of the boot being too small for some people’s calves and the shoe feeling too tight if someone has flatter feet. I ended up ordering a 7.5 and it was perfect! If you’re always between sizes, make sure to order the bigger size of the two for this brand.


Just, wow. When I took these shoes out of the box, the first thing I noticed was how soft the leather and suede is. These boots aren’t stiff and I didn’t feel like I was breaking them in when I was walking around; they felt as if they’ve been my go-to boot for seasons. Normally, my feet will feel sore or I’ll get a small blister with new boots but I didn’t with this pair.


BitterSweet Boutique only sells this color of the Caty Boot but that’s totally fine because the color, material and texture are so versatile. You can pair these boots with a short summer dress, high-waisted cropped jeans or a skirt! They go with blue, white or black denim, they pair with patterns and they’ll become a staple for your closet no matter if it’s spring or fall.

And that’s that! I wanted to keep this post super short and answer all of the questions I got. Please let me know if you have any more! I loved unboxing this with you and love it, even more, when you guys are just as excited as I am and ask me questions or send in your thoughts.
