So if there’s anything I’m obsessed with at the moment (and totally out of my price range) it’s Gucci. That Gucci bag, those Gucci loafers . . I want it all! I have to let you know I did treat myself to something from Gucci actually for my birthday and I’ve done a little unboxing on my youtube which might be up by now, if not it will be soon!
This is where I am, I’m saving for the bag because I must have it. I also treated myself to something I’ve had my eye on for a while, but those Gucci loafers? I need them too! I don’t have the budget for all of this though so I found the perfect solution.
The perfect dupes for those Gucci Loafers
My solution, is dupes! I’m not a fan of the whole dupe thing when it comes to shops like Shein who do exact copies. Don’t get me wrong if you yourself like it then go for it! My sister has a few of the Chloe dupes and she loves them so much, it’s just not for me, I want to have the excitement of saving for the real thing and having the quality item that I can love forever.
So when I talk about dupes I’m talking about high street dupes. Topshop have excelled this season in satisfying my thirst for Gucci – seriously I’m like Edward when he’s around Bella in Twilight – parched! They’ve succeeded in doing the best high street dupe for those Gucci loafers we all love, and whats more they come in an array of colours. Perhaps you could condone spending £400+ on Gucci shoes if they were black, classic and will last forever, but for brightly coloured, trend driven pieces I just can’t imagine forking out such an amount!
Anyway, I don’t actually own any loafers and didn’t know how much wear I’d get from them so even though they weren’t in my budget, I thought saving then spending on a pair of shoes I didn’t know how much wear I’d get out of them would be pretty irresponsible of me! So I’ve got these Topshop loafers with the agreement to myself, that if I wear them all of the time, I’ll get those Gucci loafers. What do you think?
Thoughts on Superdry?
So I know this post is all about the shoes. But lets just take a minute to look at my new shirt, from Superdry. I know, I shocked myself. It’s not that I dislike Superdry, but I just never saw myself wearing it and always wrote it off as a joggers and hoodies kind of brand. So when I was kindly gifted a voucher I headed in (on the same day I was shopping for my birthday!) and I was so so surprised that I actually found it hard what to choose because there was too much.
I’ve seriously changed my mind on Superdry guys, this shirt is so nice as well. Credit where credit is due, my boyfriend actually picked this one out! I’ve wanted a khaki shirt for ages but sometimes find them a bit harsh on me so the washed out colour of this one is the perfect balance – you know me nothing too crazy!
