Ok this is certainly nothing new – another ‘lusting after the Gucci belt’ blog post… but it is just so pretty. I cannot imagine any outfit that the Gucci belt wouldn’t go with. Wearing battered jeans and an old t-shirt scraped off the floor from the weekend? No problem – add a Gucci belt and voila – perfection. It’s an investment piece thats for sure – I don’t think I have ever spent more than about thirty pounds on a belt. But its an investment piece that elevates every outfit. Something you can wear everyday if you so wish. Day to evening. School-run to party time.
I have pulled out some of my ultimate inspo images here. I just love how these ladies pair it with the most simple of pieces. Wearing over the blazer to nip in your waist is just genius. And in the Summer with a super-casual denim skirt or cut-offs. This is an investment that will take you from season to season too.
Getting to the nitty-gritty… the belt comes in several GG sizes. The smallest being £220 and going right up to two giant ‘G’s at the sum of £640. You can even add pearls to take it up to £795. Personally I am lusting after a simple gold double G. And it’s no secret to my husband that I am hopeful for a Gucci shaped ‘push present’ which I have told him even if I do have a c-section I think I still deserve. Nine months of heart-burn and getting out of breath just walking to the loo (which coincidentally happens about every fifteen minutes right now).
For those of you who are far too sensible to spend this much on a belt – I have linked some beautiful statement belts at the end of the post… right under the links to the GG belts for anyone tempted.
Meanwhile I will keep reminding my husband that a push present is most definitely not just another American fad that’s made its way over to the UK…..
