The Shoe I Can’t Get Enough Of…And Can’t Stop Buying


If you follow me on Instagram (and you 1000000% should be), you might know I have a slight addiction to a certain shoe.

The good ol’ Gucci Princetown mule. A shoe I own in 7 different patterns and colors. And a shoe I ALWAYS recommend when someone is looking to make a splurge. I’m not here to brag by any means, but I always get questions about my Gucci shoes: “are they worth it?”, “do they hold up?”, “how do you have so many?”. I figured I’d write this post to get it all out there.

My first pair of Gucci mules were gifted to me by my boyfriend in 2017. I had been wanting a pair FOREVER, but never wanted to pull the trigger. I didn’t know if I was 100% on board with the mule trend, and I didn’t know if I wanted to spend the money. Luckily, he surprised me with a pair for my birthday….and I was HOOKED. Till this day, I blame him for this addiction.

Since my pretty little red pair, I’ve purchased: Black leather, black velvet fur, black bees & stars, raffia, royal blue velvet fur, and GG velvet fur.

I know, they’re expensive

No, it’s not a purchase you can make every day. It’s something most of us have to think about and save up for. But honestly, I justify these purchases so easily. They are SO, SO, SO worth every penny. Honestly, I went on a bit of a binge over the summer and purchased two pairs after receiving a nice paycheck from my blog. I figured, I work hard for my money, so why not treat myself? The fact that I still live at home also helps me make decisions for purchasing higher-ticket items. I’ve actually purchased two pairs used. I got my black leather ones and my royal blue velvet fur ones from Poshmark. They were both in amazing condition, and it was so great to save some $$$. I highly recommend this option, especially now that Poshmark authenticates everything over $500.

The quality is unreal

The comfort, the quality, the sleek design — all of it is really, really, really good. I wear the heck out of every pair, and they all have held up so well. As for my fur loafers, I’m definitely more careful when I wear them, and the fur is still in pretty great shape. Obviously, there’s signs of wear on the one I wear the most (specifically my black leather mules).

They go with everything, so I wear them with everything

I style my Gucci shoes with anything and everything: dresses, skirts, denim, sweatpants — EVERYTHING. It’s honestly just so easy to style Gucci shoes. I can instantly make my $60 jeans and basic white t-shirt look elevated or tone down a fancy skirt/dress. They are such versatile shoes, and that makes them worth the $$$ alone.

If you’re thinking about making a purchase…

I have three different sizes: 35s, 36s and 36.5s, and honestly, they all work. I’m typically a true size 6, so naturally the 35.5 are just a teeeensy too small, but they do stretch. The 36.5 are also fine, and even though they’ve stretched a bit, they don’t fall off my feet or anything. I also recommend getting a classic color for your first pair. My second pair were my used black leather ones since these were the first I purchased on my own. I just feel like it’s always better to own something super classic before purchasing something that’s more trendy/pop color.

A lot of people ask me why I don’t get the loafers, and honestly, I don’t have a great answer. I feel like if I had the black leather loafers, that would be good enough for me. The mules are just so easy to wear, aren’t super serious, and I feel like I can have more fun with them. That’s not to say that I don’t have my eye on a pair of loafers;)

If you ask me, Gucci shoes are worth the hype and the money. Sure, I may have went a little crazy and purchased a lot of pairs over the last year, but I truly, truly love them. Not only are they unbelievably comfortable, but they also remind me of a lot of hard work. This is definitely another story for another day, but over the last year, I’ve watched my business really take off. In turn, I like to treat myself as a reminder of everything I put into my business.
