So, after only a 2 day wait, my first Gucci is here!! And man, the second you pick it up, you can FEEL the difference in quality. People who think it's crazy to spend this much on a bag hasn't ever had one on their shoulder! I was a little nervous about buying one off eBay, but this one is definitely authentic, and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. I have a feeling my collection will be growing quickly, I'm hooked! I carry rafe bags as everyday bags, but I think it's official: I'm a Gucci girl now. I'll hopefully get pics up tomorrow!! Thank you to everyone who has helped me in my research and answered authenticity questions so I learned what I was doing!
