Bag Review: Obsessed with the Gucci Marmont Matelasse Mini Bag

First there was the Gucci Dionysus...but I resisted. Then I saw the Blooms print...yet I still managed to stay strong. But when the Gucci Marmont Matelasse bags started popping up - it was a lost cause. I fell in love with the antique gold toned hardware and the quilted chevron design - I knew I needed to buy one!

While their shoulder bags are one of the most popular styles (they resemble the classic Chanel flap bag), I knew I'd be using mine as an evening bag, so I opted for the mini Wallet on a Chain.

COMPARING GUCCI MARMONT TO CHANEL WALLET ON A CHAIN (WOC)

Here's what it looks like next to my Chanel Wallet on a Chain. In terms of size, the Gucci one holds more - it is 8.5w x 5.5h x 1d while my Chanel one is 7.5w x 4.5h x 1.8d. They are both small bags though - and work best when you only carry your essentials.

WHAT FITS INSIDE

Here's what I can fit inside my bag - my phone, wallet, some makeup and my business cards (for blog events). If I need to carry my key case, I have to remove my wallet and place some cards and cash in the card slots. Alternatively, I can just pick out my house key and carry it loose in my bag.

DIFFERENT WAYS OF WEARING IT

    1. It's definitely a bag worth waiting for - I love the colours and I feel like it's classic rather than trendy, so it will always be in style.
