THE HANDBAG DIARIES: GUCCI DISCO SOHO

Processed with VSCO with hb1 preset img_7953 img_7525

Hello Everyone!

Happy Monday!  I’m sure you know by now if you’ve been a reader of mine for any length of time that I’m a handbag aficionado.  I’m always on the hunt for the next bag that will make my heart sing and fit seamlessly into my wardrobe.  However, often when I am about to purchase a handbag, I scour the internet for reviews, opinions, and thoughts regarding the bag in question.  More often than not, not a lot of these posts exist.   This series, The Handbag Diaries (see this postthis post & this post for more), is an effort to fill that void and help those of you who might be interested in a handbag but desire a little information about them before you purchase.   Today I’ll be discussing the Gucci Disco Soho.

Structure:

This bag is softly structured.  It does stand on its own despite the soft leather bottom.  It has one zipper pull with two small pockets inside.  The zipper pull has an adorable leather tassel attached to it.  It has a long shoulder strap that is adjustable.  It’s able to be worn cross body and can be adjusted to fit your height.  I’ve owned this bag a few months and it hasn’t lost any structure but it is a soft pebbled leather.  This means that it will most likely become softer as time goes on.  However, the outside piping should keep the overall structure of it held together nicely.

Leather Quality:

It is made of textured leather.  It is a buttery soft pebbled leather.  Due to the textured leather, it is highly durable.  It does not show catches when brushed up against something. I have not experienced any color transfer with it.  However, I have heard of others who have had some transfer with dark colored denim.

Hardware:

This is a bag with minimal hardware.  The only hardware is the zipper.  It is a good smooth zip.

Versatility:

This bag can be worn crossbody or on the shoulder using the shoulder strap.  It is very easy to carry.  It is perfect for a day of shopping or errands and looks best when worn casually.  It is not, in my opinion a night bag.  It doesn’t dress up easily.  It carries everything you need for the day.  However, you may have to downsize when carrying it.

What It Holds:

This bag is a small crossbody that you will have to downsize when carrying.  It fit my Chanel reading glasses (with a hard small case), Saint Laurent card holder,  Louis Vuitton Cles (for my keys),  iPhone, gum, a small travel perfume, small hand lotion, powder, lip balm  and lipstick and had very little room left.  A makeup bag will not fit in this but you can fit a lipstick and powder/mirror.  While it is a bag where you may have to downsize, for my needs, the essentials fit nicely.

Verdict:

This bag is a must have.  The price point is amazing for what it is.  It is easy to wear and has held up really well.  I would highly recommend this bag and honestly have had to tell myself it is ridiculous to have the same handbag in multiple colors in an effort to keep myself from purchasing the hot pink or red version as well!  One thing that I can say is if you do decide to purchase it, be ready for compliments.

Hope you found this helpful!  Feel free to ask me any questions you may have about it!

xoxo,

Abbie
