GUCCI SHOE HAUL, REVIEWS & METALLIC SHOE TRENDS FOR FALL

Gucci is everywhere right now and if you're not tired of the brand yet, then this post is for you. I'm doing a quick review on their most popular slippers and loafers and also showing you guys my metallic shoe collection that has been years in the making. It's interesting how when you're true to your personal style everything just comes together. 

I'd like to know what you guys think of the Gucci trend and do you have any pairs on your wish list?

GUCCI GOLD CROSS OVER SANDALS

I've hear from a few people now that these sandals aren't the easiest to walk in and it's true. Maybe it's the 4.5" heel (with no platform) or maybe it's the bulky heel but these shoes are not made for walking long distances in. Regardless I think they're super chic and go with so many summer outfits and will transition well into early fall. I should mention though that I did get these on sale for half off and had it not been for the sale price, I probably wouldn't have gotten them. If you're not a fan of high heels, I say pass on these. 

FIT: Italian sizing, runs small. I recommend you go half a size up.

SPLURGE ON IT $$$

GUCCI GOLD PRICETOWN LEATHER SLIPPER

I spotted these on Instagram in early spring and went crazy looking for them. I ordered them through Gucci.com since I wasn't able to find a store in Toronto that carried this particular colour. If you guys follow my blog, you'll know I've been wearing them non stop. They're by far the most comfortable pair of shoes I own and the gold makes them effortlessly chic. They're the kind of shoes that can be worn with anything and still look fashion forward. Best of all, the leather is super soft so you don't need to break these in.

FIT: Italian sizing, runs small. I recommend you go half a size up.

ON A BUDGET

GUCCI PINK JORDAAN LEATHER LOAFER

The story of this shoe is a little wild. I originally saw these on my style crush Lizzy VD Ligt and started creeping all over the internet for them only to come up empty handed. Fast forward to a few months later, I happen to be walk into the Gucci store after a meeting only to see my dream pink loafer on display. Long story short, it turns out the store had gotten the one pair by accident, which happens to be a half size too big for me. Thirty mintues of hmmm-ing and haaa-ing later, I decided to take them home with me since I know they'd fit well with the help of insoles. They're just different enough from my gold slides to justify my purchase but most importantly, I love them. #ConfessionsOfAShoeaholic

This colour is unavailable in North America but the Jordaan loafer can be found in silver, black, gold and red online. For pink loafers, check out the Gucci pink fringe metallic pump (here) or the Topshop version (here). 

3.1 PHILLIP LIM GUNMETAL QUINN LOAFER

This is the shoe that started my love of metallic leather footwear. I had gotten these a few years back and similar to my gold slippers, I went through a great deal of looking before I found them online. Forever 21 famously ripped off this design and the replica was so close, I wonder how they got away with it. 

Phillip Lim comes out with the Quinn loafer each season in different colours and textures, but I've never seen him do something as amazing as these. This loafer is a testament to why it's important to buy what you love and not for trends because even years later, I still think they're the shit.

SAINT LAURENT PARIS BABIES GLITTER BOOTIE

So many of my shoes have a story and that's probably because I'm ridiculously picky and ridiculously passionate about my footwear! A few years ago I had seen a picture of Gilda Ambrosio in all black wearing the most amazing pink ankle boots I had ever seen. The last year I happen to be in Marshalls when I saw them on display for such a insanely low price that I almost fell over. They were half a size too small but I was determined to stretch them out. I wore them around the house for weeks in thick socks before the leather finally started to give and they fit me properly. It's funny seeing them next to my pink loafers since they're almost the exact same colour.
