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.

There is nothing like the fit of a well-crafted shoe.  And no one designs it better than Stuart Weitzman.  His shoes are crafted to fit every foot like a glove and they are very comfortable to wear.  I recently purchased the above-pictured shoes at Saks Fifth Avenue in Palm Beach.  The color is a neutral metallic so they complement many outfits in my wardrobe.  I haven’t worn them yet but I can’t wait to debut them!

I became a fan of Stuart Weitzman while watching America’s Next Top Model.  As a prize for winning a challenge on the show, Mr. Weitzman gave away several pairs of his shoes to the winner.  He was so gracious and kind to all the ladies, regardless of whether they won or loss.  Also, it was evident that he was very proud of his shoes and he work the he had put into designing them.  I gained a lot a respect for Mr. Weitzman and his company during that episode and I love buying his shoes because of it!
