So...... The wait is over...... This is my new Gucci handbag that I teased you all with on Instagram at the weekend. Isn't she a beaut....!?
This is the Gucci Signature Top Leather handbag in pink with the Guccisimma pattern embossing. I already have a very similar Gucci bag in a tan colour and I love it. It's such a practical size that I use it all the time, but I was getting annoyed that I couldn't wear it with all outfits due to the colour. I decided I wanted a similar sized bag but in black or a nude/ nudey pink, and over the last few months I've been eyeing up a few different bags including the Gucci Signature Top Leather handbag.
I then saw the Saint Laurent Collage Satchel in what looked like a nude colour online and fell in love... I went to Selfridges to take a look at it but the colour of it was not at all what it looked like online so I walked away empty handed and pretty gutted. You know what it's like when you get it in your head that you want something and then you don't buy it!
Not long after my Saint Laurent disappointment I was visiting Bicester Village and decided to take a look in Gucci when I saw this beauty of bag. Although a black bag would have been more practical I loved the colour and pink is very "in" this season.
This was the Gucci Signature Top Leather handbag from Spring/ Summer 2 years ago so you can't get this same style in the shops right now, however I luckily prefer it to the one that is out this year, so I'm so glad I didn't buy it! It was fate! It also means you save yourself more than a few quid too. Bonus.
It's very versatile in terms of how it can be held - either in the hand, on the arm or over the shoulder - as it comes with a detachable shoulder strap.
The handbag inside is pretty much the same size as my other Gucci and it holds a lot - I can fit a purse, diary, my Olympus E-PL8 camera, tissues, makeup and my phone. Now that I take my Olympus PEN with me everywhere its pretty much a prerequisite that any handbag I buy can fit it in.
I'm so happy with new bag that I've used it every day since I bought it, but it now does unfortunately mean that I still need to buy a black bag in a similar size..... What a shame!
