I think GST can be used as everyday bag..but one thing keep me from GST is the open top..but if I can find one in pink..I'll forget about the open top... regarding scratches..I guess as long as its caviar its quite durable and no need to worry about it
We have seen some photos of severely mishandled GSt's that lose their structural integrity. But I think those cases are rare and to be expected, to be honest, due to the negligence thst's so obvious when these people used the bag.
My beige/gold chain GST holds up very well. I've been using it quite a bit since I got it about 2 weeks ago. Sometimes the leather gets dirty, but all I do is either rub it clean with a damp cloth or use a soft eraser to get the stains off. I love this bag and am waiting to get another one in black
