Hi! I adore these forums...they are like a playground for the handbag and fashion obsessed! I have found the most beautiiful pair of Gucci boots online in a size 8, but I've never worn this brand, and I generally wear a size 7 1/2. Knowing how some brands can run a half size larger or smaller, I thought I'd ask you gals and try to guage whether I might could swing these in a half size larger. Thanks so much for your help.
