Setting Sights On: Gucci

I love my Chanel, don't get me wrong, but I'm kind of a "matchy-matchy" person. You know, the kind who doesn't like to mix black and brown, which brings me to my point. I get a lil uncomfortable leaving my house with brown shoes and a brown-toned outfit and my black, quilted Chanel. It's nothing that would keep me from actually leaving my house or being embarrassed of my outfit or purse (like anyone could ever be embarrassed of a Chanel), but I do think about it. Perhaps I could never wear brown again? Now, that's just silly...what I need is something different...something brown...something classic...something chic...something designer...something Gucci? Darn you shopaholicism!

Gucci Chain Large Hobo

Have you ever heard designer bags are addictive? Well, I'm here to tell you it's absolutely true! It may be awhile before I can afford another designer tote, but I'm willing to swear off other purses till I find my perfect brown-toned-beauty. Maybe when I have the money, I'll still have my sights set on the Gucci hauteness pictured above. *le sigh*

PS I would like to add that "light brown" and black is pretty cute...I'm just not a fan of dark brown and black...ick!

you know, I'm the same way. I alwasy wish I had a fab brown bag. I have to say, I've been stalking the Gucci bag in question for a while. The large, however, is enormous. And I mean enormous. You could fit an entire army inside of it - and it lacks any structure at all. I will admit, however, that the hardware is pretty fabulous. But once I saw it in person I was immediately turned off by its huge-ness. I'm a wee bit petite! ;)

However - if you can rock it in all of it's bignes,s by all means rock away, baby! Nothing better than a fashionista and her fab new bag!

Hey Franki, I'm not a fan of super-huge totes either...I actually haven't seen this tote in person yet...need to head over to Neimans...just to look, of course!
