This has been such a long time coming, but I can finally present to you: the Gucci Marmont belt. I might have been stalking this belt for at least four to five months before I even considered buying it. After seeing pretty much every outfit online with this belt, I decided I wanted to make the splurge.
So I went to the Gucci shop in Brussels, the only shop left in Belgium, R.I.P Gucci Antwerp! Once I entered the palace of Gucci, I noticed it was very (!) crowded, not Zara-on-a-Saturday-crowded, but it was getting there. I waited for half an hour after which a shop assistant told me all Gucci marmont belts were out of stock, only the very small versions were still available. (Now I know why there are secondhand designer websites that retail this baby for double its price.)
Anyway … I decided to look online and fortunately the belt was in stock and ready to be sent out within the next few days. So I placed my order Sunday and got my “your parcel is on its way” notification on Tuesday.
When you order the belt, as well as when you buy it in the shop, it comes with a beautiful Gucci box and wrapping. The belt itself is fitted nicely in a Gucci dustbag that is closed with black ribbon. The return label can be found inside the Gucci envelop. If you want to give this item as a gift (or any Gucci item for that matter), you can add a ‘gift note’ that will also be put in a beige Gucci envelop.
THE STORY CONTINUES…
Another week later, no belt. I called Brussels again and they would contact Gucci online themselves. And with success: less than a week later, I could finally unpack my belt!
It’s in the details …
