Review- Gucci Marmont Bag - Is It Worth the Investment?

Two years ago I purchased this Gucci Marmont bag in the nude color. The website currently has a similar color called dusty pink. I am not 100% sure it's the exact same shade as the one I have, but I think it is. This is probably one of my favorite bag purchases that's a non Balenciaga. As some of you know, I love Balenciaga bags and hardly ever stray to other brands. This post will show how my Gucci Marmont bag has held up after two years and my overall thoughts carrying the bag.  This photo was taken when I first received her. First off I should say I have a lot of bags, probably more than one should ever own and care to admit to. The majority of my bags are Balenciaga bags. I do own a handful of Coach bags as well. For work I usually grab either a Balenciaga or Coach because they are not super flashy.

It's National Handbag Day!

My very first handbag purchase was an Icon bag. Icon is actually famous for their shoes, but I saw this Navigator bag on display at Bloomingdales and had to have it.

My very first Balenciaga was a pewter first in silver hardware. I wish I still had it. I eventually sold it because it was a little too small for me. Balenciaga Pewter First 2005 Over the years I've gone through tons of Balenciagas. There are a few that I regret selling. If I ever won the lotto, I would probably spend the money searching for the old and rare Balenciaga bags that pop up on eBay every so often. Specifically the ones released in 2001-2005.

Review! Gucci GG Marmont Matelasse Shoulder Bag Size Small Nude

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. Gucci Marmont Small Shoulder Bag Nude 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. Gucci Vs  J.Crew Signet bag 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&#
