Gone Gucci

A few months ago, my husband and I vacationed in Palm Beach, Florida, but only for a few days.  We live in Florida so the mystique is a bit lost on us, even in the winter months.  We were really just looking for a fun place to get away.  To me, there is no place better in Florida than Palm Beach.  The restaurants and hotels are top notch and the shopping, oh the shopping, on Worth Avenue is the best in the world (even if you are just looking like I mostly was).

However, this trip was special.  I really wanted to make my first Worth Avenue purchase instead of “just looking”.  I had always wanted a pair of Gucci shoes.  They are practical and never go out of style.  I had been in the Worth Avenue Gucci store before and they were extremely helpful.  There was no pretense there so I felt comfortable buying from them.  Actually, the time before I went into their store, they had the most gorgeous silk dress that had just arrived.  I was smitten.  I wanted to own something Gucci.  And so I would.

I looked at so many different styles of shoes and tried on many, but I selected the pair featured below because they are classic Gucci.  The staff was very friendly and graciously allowed me to try on any shoe that I liked.  I was greeted warmly and treated like I had been a lifelong customer.  I was so happy that I had saved my pennies to purchase my shoes at Gucci once I had experienced their remarkable service.  Because of their fine Italian craftsmanship, I will have my Gucci shoes for many years to come.  They are an investment piece and were well-worth the price!  Plus, I got to shop and make a purchase on Worth Avenue.  If you ever want to make a high end purchase, I strongly recommend Gucci.  Both their service and the craftsmanship of all of their pieces is impeccable.

(He has since been promoted to curator of the Costume Institute).
