We all have that bag we lust over and have on our life wish lists and maybe even need to save a lifetime of pennies for! Well for me that bag has been the Gucci Soho Disco.
I’ll start with saying that I’m not a purse girl in the sense that I have a hundred bags that I’m constantly rotating through. I’m a fan of just a few investment bags that will go with anything and can be pieces I wear year after year.
As such, I’ve been eyeing this beauty for quite some time knowing it would be the bag I would grab every weekend. I was lucky enough to finally splurge and pull the trigger on my recent trip to Florence. There seemed no better place to bring it home from than the flagship store there (which PS, I was obviously geeking out at. Least chic and chill Gucci shopper in the room!)
Bottom Line: It’s the perfect weekend bag if you’re a girl who likes a light purse, a leather shoulder strap, and struggles getting an overstuffed wallet out of your typical cross body. (I’m looking at you my ever-loved Rebecaca Minkoff MAC!)
Colors: If you’ve been here for even a second, you know I’m partial to the nudes so for me black was the obvious choice followed by the rose beige leather which is a lovely light nude. On Gucci’s website, you can also get it in red, off-white leather, metallic, and black Python (though at a higher price.) Sometimes other retailers like Saks and Neiman Marcus have really fun colors, most of which go on a small discount as seasons close out so that’s a great place to look for a slightly more affordable version!
Size: The bag is 8x6x2.7 meaning for me it’s the perfect weekend size and is really the Goldilocks of cross bodies – not too small, not too big. It weighs in at less than a pound, which is essential for me in a weekend bag because I hate running around the city with something giantic that makes my shoulder ache by the end of the day! First world problems, but you purse-over Packers feel me.
Structure: Another awesome selling point for me was the limited small pockets inside. I also initially was a bit turned off by it being fabric lined at this price point, but quickly learned that’s what contributes to it being so light! Another tiny detail that is probably not noticeable to most gals but totally won me over is that the zipper actually comes down the sides of the bag a bit, making it open really wide for such a slim profiled bag. This means it’s so easy to get to all of your junk, and you’re not fishing around in a tiny dark hole when you can’t remember where you shoved your metro card. No? Just me?
All told, this thing is just a dream and I know I’ll be nuts about it for years to come.
Do you have an investment bag that has become your go-to? What do you love about it?
