This title may be a bit misleading as I only own one thing from the brand but that one thing? I love it. ALOT. This is the Gucci Soho Small Leather Disco Bag in red. The bag first came on my radar when I saw my friend Mallory with the tan version when we met up in the city a few years ago and after it caught my eye I began seeing it on many fashionable ladies – from those in the office to a handful of bloggers I follow – and every time I saw it I loved it more and more. Fast forward a bit to the holiday in 2017 and I had been looking it up at the same time planning my trip to Paris in January 2018 and I discovered the wonderful world of VAT. Basically, if you do your research and play your cards right the 20% sales tax that is included in the price of goods in Europe, you can get this sales tax back as an American if you buy the piece and carry it home with you on the plane still brand new. There are a few trick and paperwork to fill out, but 20% off a designer bag is nothing to sneeze about.
Thus, a bit over a year ago I took the plunge while in Paris, picked up this bag, and have not looked back. It has been with me on a number of trips and is still my go-to pop of color for a night out. It has made it to the blog half a dozen times and to Instagram many more than that – take a look!
What do you think of this bag?
