Lots of you may have noticed my new designer handbag purchase over on my instagram so I thought I should feature it properly on the blog. It is the Gucci Dionysus Coated Canvas Chain Strap Wallet. Its a small sized shoulder bag which can be worn crossbody or carried as a clutch. The wallet description makes it sound like a teeny tiny bag but as you can see from the photos its actually a good little size.
I bought it when I visited Paris in December. It was a bit of an impulse buy. I'd always had my heart set on a Chanel and had planned to wait and just save up for one. But I did love the Dionysus style and clasp and had been eyeing them up on Vestiaire to buy one second hand bags but found they were really out of my price range. When I was in Paris with Emma we just accidentally (lol) fell in to Gucci so I could look at the small Dionysus and I wasn't sure I 100% liked the shape. Then the sales guy showed me this smaller wallet style bag which still has the GG canvas finish but a smaller metal clasp and I loved it. It turned out to be much more affordable and to be honest I just fell in love. So I bought it.
I haven't found this bag for sale many places and its named various things from Gucci Dionysus coated canvas chain strap wallet to GG Supreme coated canvas shoulder bag if your are searching for it. Although the Gucci Marmont seems to be 2017 style of Gucci that everyone is buying and is very affordable actually, I just loved this and so I was really happy to get this as my first proper designer handbag purchase. I've bought sort of mid range bags like Michael Kors, Rebecca Minkoff and Kate Spade but this was really a step up. I was so happy to have Emma with me to advise me and help me choose.
The bag got its first outing a couple of weeks ago when I headed out for drinks with my Essex Blogger ladies, until then it has actually sat in its box. I'm so happy to have had it out and used it and for a night out it was perfect. Its laid out like a wallet inside and concertinas out, but it easily fit inside my money, cards, phone and some bits of makeup too. All in all I'm really happy with it and I'm sure you'll be seeing a lot more of it on the blog.
What do you think of my new bag? Whats your dream handbag??
