My first (and only) Gucci bag! I have it in red. I thought about it for a year before purchasing and I'm so glad that I did because the price went up by 300$ the following year in my country. I just recently checked and it's nearly doubled in price!! I guess it's due to the recent popularity Gucci's having. I've had it for about 3 years now and it still looks brand new, albeit the leather has softened a tiny bit. I try to be gentle with my bags but this has fallen on concrete floor a couple of times and escaped without a scratch! Great, durable bag! The only thing it the tassles are starting to split, not a biggie, but I guess it was bound to happen.
