What was that I was saying about not shopping before my holiday? Oh yes… well that was clearly before I realised I didn’t have the perfect crossbody bag to go on holiday with… Enter the Gucci Soho Disco.
This was definitely what you call an impulse purchase, which in general, I’m not a fan of doing with bags. I’m someone who likes to research and dither, and then research and dither some more. However, I’d been eyeing this up for a while on TPF as well as Instagram and when I saw one going for a great price on Flannels.com, I pounced.
I obviously haven’t used it yet but first impressions are strong: the colour is gorgeous – a soft, muted pink that I think will work as well in the transitional seasons as it will in Summer. The size is decent as well as it’s pretty clear that it will fit plenty more than my Chanel mini and WOC combined.
The selling feature I would say is the leather though – it has that amazing leather smell which really isn’t found too often these days. I’ve heard a lot about the quality of Gucci bags – particularly when considering their relatively affordable price – and I’ve got to say, this doesn’t disappoint. Wonderfully supple and a lovely grainy texture.
For now, this is a keeper and I think I’ve narrowed it down to this one and perhaps my Chanel mini for my taking-on-vacation bags. Hopefully I’ll have lots of lovely pics to share as well!
I filmed a quick video as well to show my live reveal for all those interested 🙂
As always, thank you so much for reading and watching!
