As much as I love less expensive versions of popular clothing and retail, there is absolutely a time and place for investing in the designer option over the other versions. The perfect example of this would be the Gucci princetown mules. For as long as I can remember, when I know I’m ready to invest in a more high-end piece of retail for my wardrobe, I immediately go to Nordstrom because they have it all including the Gucci mules.
A few years ago, I wrote a dedicated blog post with my honest review of the Gucci Princetown Mules so you can read my detailed thoughts there. For today’s post, I want to answer a few questions I get over and over about these shoes like “Are Gucci mules worth it?” and “Are Gucci mules still in style?” Short answer: yes! Retailing for $790, the price may look steep at first, but it’s been over four years since I started investing in Gucci mules and they still feel and look as good as the day I purchased them from Nordstrom! An all-leather slide mule is as classic a shoe as anything else, and what I consider to be a must have designer accessory.
There are endless ways on how to wear Gucci mules and what to wear with them, too. While they’re a great spring and summer shoe, Gucci mules also work in the winter! Take today’s look for example. I paired the shoe with more Nordstrom pieces such as the best white t-shirt ever (yes, the ATM one), another gorgeous investment piece in the shape of an Eileen Fisher Double Face wool coat, and a classic pair of Levi’s 501 skinny jeans. This head-to-toe Nordstrom look is topped off perfectly with the Gucci princetown mules because they truly go with everything, and I would buy them over and over again!

very simple amd cozy look!
You rock this casual outfit! 🙂
The cardigan you are wearing in the photos appears to be longer and the sleeve is different from the Nordstrom sweater linked through the blog; are you wearing the exact sweater or is the link to a similar item? Thanks for the clarification!
The sweater from Nordstrom is a similar item, my exact sweater is old and sold out!
Love your blog! Curious to know how you protect your gucci mules from the rain?
It rarely rains in San Diego, so I don’t wear them when it is raining! xx
I love the way you styled these designer pieces they can elevate any outfit! The trench coat adds so much in making the outfit look more chic! You are a style queen and my inspo!
Love the jeans. The pair from the link doesn’t look like yours in the picture especially the wash.
They are the exact same pair linked!
