Hi everyone! I finally pulled the trigger after over a year on contemplating whether to make the purchase of these most so coveted Gucci loafers.
To me, a pair of loafers is the ultimate perfect touch of masculin/féminin to any outfit. Its simplicity is enduring with the gold horsebit detail and I hope the leather is sturdy enough to last long from my terrible (horse) trotting habits. This menswear-inspired shoe has replaced the ballet flat as the quintessential run-around shoe and now finally completes my footwear collection (Yeah!!! Pop the champagne NOW :)). I can’t wait to wear it on my next travel on the plane for an easy slipper alternative which explains why I favored the Brixton, which has the back that folds down exactly like a slipper over the Jordaan version although the latter seems prettier and sturdier. Upon receiving the loafers, there wasn’t any need for stretching/breaking them in so the fit was just perfect and they are true to size. Shouldn’t it be that easy?! I’d wear my new in shoes with socks because it’s cooler and they can easily turn into my new winter footwear essentials. Who needs boots to be stylish nowadays right?!
Since the loafers arrived, I’ve worn them almost everyday, which goes to show how much I have fallen head over heels (no heels there?!) in love for this cutie. Is it weird to have a bigger crush on a pair of shoes than on a guy?! Oh well… from work to running errands, and weekend play to night dating and even clubbing, they walk extremely well so well that gums got a huge crush for my Gucci’s sole hahaha. (Tip: apply ice all over and remove delicately the gum with a damp cloth). Moreover, I have a particular liking when the shoes don’t give the look of them being too new cos it’s not cool!
I am now eyeing on getting an additional pair in brown or white. Euuh NON stop! I must calm down for it’s the holiday season with the Euro airfare that still needs to be purchased and the gift giving activities shall ramp up pretty soon as well. What do you guys think? Do you also wear these loafers? If yes, how do you style them? I like to wear mine with a work trouser (either from Filippa K, read more here or from System, a label from Korea read more here) and a thick jumper or with a simple pair of blue jeans and a white button up combo or a denim skirt with a graphic tee (read more here) for play (as here) or even an all back outfit for a night date is just so effortless, elegant and classy!!
