Hi you guys ! Extremely happy with my present today !
Although I would've waited to get to Italy to buy these Gucci loafers, hubby gave them as a graduation present today ! Hurray !
My absolute n° 1 faves where the fuchsia metallic ones but unfortunately these weren't available anymore at our local Gucci store, so I went for the black ones as they were just back in store.
My first ever Gucci loafers were the 1953 horse bit ones but when the Jordaan loafers emerged on the fashion scene a couple of seasons ago, worn by it-girls Alexa Chung or Sienna Miller, I always felt a craving to go for this particular model too. I particularly love the longer nose of the shoe which the classic loafer has not.
They look more preppy and very Italian, a bit more boyish what is absolutely not the case with the Jordaan's. The leather is smoother and the model itself way more elegant on the feet.
So here we are, super happy with my present and even more happy to show them off once in Italy.
Who knows, I might find some other metallic Gucci shoe ; I even want to consider the granny ones with the block heels. Granny shoes are the next thing as I've seen them already for Fall designed by Prada and Dries van Noten.
I'll leave you with some inspirational pictures, shot at different street style occasions such as PFW and MFW. Hope you'll enjoy them and get inspired too.
