I'm equally torn between both bags. I like that both can be worn crossbody, or on the shoulder both long and short. I like the Dionysus in the GG canvas because I think it's super cute with my casual style. But I love the idea of the velvet. I currently live in Washington DC, but will be moving to Florida in October and wonder how the velvet will hold up in the heat and humidity year round. But I also feel the print on the Dionysus can be limiting. I don't believe it goes well with every pattern out there, so I'd have to be careful with what I wear t with. What opinions/thoughts/insight can you wonderful Gucci lovers give me to help in my decision making?? Thank you!!!
