I by no means believed in love at first sight. That’s, till the second I laid eyes on the Gucci Sylvie Leather-based Mini Bag in pink. It is vital to notice that I am hardly ever interested in pink luggage. (My assortment is sort of completely black. Oops.) However let me let you know, this Gucci model requires an exception.
Humorous sufficient, the primary time I noticed the bag was after grabbing espresso with one in every of my oldest buddies. She was on the town for just a few days, and as we had been saying goodbye, her mother (who I do know and love dearly) got here as much as me to say whats up. I could not assist however blurt out, “Wow, your bag. It is beautiful!” After I mentioned it, I used to be mildly embarrassed. Her mother in all probability nonetheless thinks of me because the little woman who performed gown up together with her daughter – not a younger girl who would significantly ponder spending $2,400 on a bag.
The very first thing I did after I acquired dwelling was shortly Google it. As a result of I am barely ridiculously into luggage, I may inform from the beginning it was a Gucci. Regardless that the enduring (and moderately giant) emblem was no the place in sight, the gold gave it away (to me, not less than). As soon as I narrowed that down, I searched excessive and low on the location till I discovered the proper dimension, model, and colour. It really is available in fairly just a few colours (black, white, bumblebee elaborations), however I really feel that pink simply is sensible on this bag.
Up till this level, I have been adamant with buddies that I might by no means buy a Gucci. I haven’t got an issue with the model (most of the kinds are lovely!), however I really feel as if they’re a dime a dozen now – and once we’re speaking about spending 1000’s of on one thing (particularly as a semi-investment bag), I simply by no means thought Gucci was the way in which to go.
A pair days after my first encounter with Sylvie (we’re on a primary identify foundation now), I went to the closest Gucci retailer to examine it for myself. I can fortunately report the standard exceeded my expectations. It was sturdy and barely bigger than I anticipated, and the gold-plated rounded all of it out, giving it a bit of one thing additional with out saying, “Have a look at me! I am Gucci!” It undoubtedly earned a spot on my bag record, although I nonetheless have not determined if I will buy it sooner or later. (I prefer to ruminate on a bag for a pair months earlier than pulling the set off.)
I can say I am on a semi Gucci kick now. (Who would have thought!). In fact, Sylvie will get the primary spot on this record, however I’ve additionally rounded up a handful of different kinds I would not thoughts making an attempt out. What do you suppose? Are you into it?
