Shoe du jour

A shoe sale! It figures, my size was out of stock. But you could “opt in” to be notified if your size became available, so I did. Because that never happens. I didn’t realize “opt in” was an auto purchase. Imagine my surprise when these stylish kicks arrived. To say I’m in love with the double G gold-tone hardware is an understatement – per Gucci’s website its “a contemporary play on the Running G belt buckle from Gucci’s 1970s archives”. The Gucci Victoire GG Patent Pump – a self covered black patent mid-heel, about 2″ (I consider this a flat, not a mid heel), with round toe and blue rosebud printed lining and leather sole – distinctive nod o the Pre-Fall 2018 Gucci collection.

Some reviewers said it ran large.

It does not.

Some said it runs wide.

It does not.

I’m testing these out on carpet and I would love it they stretched a bit, to give a little more wiggle room in the toe box.

I paired these with rolled up jeans, white t and a black blazer and I look like a page out of a fashion magazine. Understated elegance.


Yes, even on sale.

Worth it?


No regrets!
