The Gucci Britt top handle shoulder bag FINALLY arrived from the BBOS outlet. It was hung up by some computer glitch, which took over a week to iron out. Definitely worth waiting for. Plus, they gave me some extra $$$ off! This style, #167723, apparently came out in the Fall of 06. I've seen pictures of it in croc, latte, black, and milk. It has been a long search for any color (except milk) as Gucci no longer stocks it. When I saw it in suede, I did the happy dance . Wish my photographic skills matched the beauty of this bag. Right now, it is drying...I sprayed on some Apple Garde. This bag is sometimes called the Britt Messenger. I love the flat silhouette. It hangs great on the shoulder. It does not fit me cross body...I would need an extra 8 inches of strap length. It *may* fit a really thin person cross body. But I love it and can't wait to take it out!
