Review! Gucci GG Marmont Matelasse Shoulder Bag Size Small Nude

April 16, 2017


Hope everyone had a great weekend! For those who celebrate Easter, hope you enjoyed time with your family. A few of you have been asking me to review my Gucci bag. Some of you may know handbags are my weakness. I've been somewhat obsessed with handbags since 2003. I've had a long history with Balenciagas. They have been my go to bag for over a decade, but now I'm ready to expand to other brands.


This is my second Gucci bag ever. A long time ago I bought a brown suede Gucci, but it wasn't very user friendly even though it looked amazing. Now when I buy handbags, I make sure it's practical for my lifestyle. Cross body bags are very popular right now because who doesn't like a hands free bag? It's an absolute must these days.


Sizing is also something to consider. This Gucci comes in 2 sizes. The mini and the small. I've seen both sizes in person. The mini is SUPER tiny. It's a little bigger than an iPhone plus. I kid you not! If you want a bag just to hold your phone and wallet, then go for the mini. The price of the mini is under $1000. These days finding a high end designer bag made in Italy for under $1000 is RARE. The size small clocks in at $1200, but the size is more practical for every day use. It can fit my iPhone 6, my two card cases, pack of gum, inhaler, lipstick, and keys with room to spare. It's a little bit bigger than my J.Crew Signet bag which I also have reviewed here.


If you really want to put things into perspective, the J.Crew Signet bag is $128 retail, and right now they have a 25% off coupon code HOPTOIT which would bring cost of the bag $96. It's less than 10% of the cost of the Gucci.


That said, I reeeeeeeally wanted the Gucci bag. It's been on my wish list for months. The color nude is only available in the size small from Gucci's website. It's exclusive to Gucci.com. 


 The nude color is super pretty in the sunlight or any type of natural outdoor lighting. It can look pinkish. Indoors, the color looks more like a taupe. The hardware is antique gold. I typically do not like gold hardware and prefer silver, but this gold is very subtle which I really like.


For those who are worried about the length of the shoulder strap, I will tell you a secret. I'm only 4 feet 11, and the strap has a 24 inch drop. It's too long for my short torso. I've tied a knot to shorten the strap and it's working well for me. You can see it in the 4th photo next my Balenciaga.


As of right now, Gucci.com has the nude color backordered, but it's totally worth the wait in my opinion. It's a very classy bag. It does remind me of the 70s because of the chevron pattern but combined with the color nude, the antique hardware and size of the bag this will remain a classic. 



I'm also tempted to buy the matching card case. It's it so cute?! I also have my eye on this velvet version. That's it for me, hope you all have a great Monday!!

    2. I was eyeing this small size or the shoulder size. Since I dont have any nude color bags, my eyes were in nude and black (somewhat we all ended up with black bag, right?)

    3. Ah then you totally need the nude color in your collection! Everyone has at least one black bag, so I think nude is the way to go. A black bag will always be available to purchase, but the nude is a little more special. I'm totally eyeing the velvet shoulder bag though. Maybe for Christmas! =D

    5. I heard Gucci will no longer do sales, but I don't know if that's 100% true. If you find it on sale let me know and I will do the same!

    1. Yay! I haven't seen too many people carrying the Marmont bag, whereas I've seen so many people with the Disco bag.

    1. Honestly I kind of just fiddled with it for a while until I was satisfied with it. I start where the buckle is and I wrapped it around twice and looped it through with the end sticking up instead of down. The knot itself is on the back of my shoulder when wearing it so you don't see it from the front. I've been pretty much knotting all my bags these days! It does take a while to get it the way I like it, but with some patience it will.
