I bought my first Gucci bag as a reward for finishing my NP program. It was a little preemptive since I have not solidified a nice NP salary, but the bag was to provide inspiration and motivation. I was always eyeing a good Gucci bag, but with such a big accomplishment behind me, I decided it was time. I needed an over-the-shoulder bag that could fit all my essentials - wallet, iPhone, makeup bag, keys and sunglasses. Turns out the Gucci travel & business / medium messenger bag fits all that plus an occasional water bottle. It’s the perfect travel bag because not only can it hold the essentials, it hugs close to your body so it’s secure and on your person at all times. The lady who sold me the purse told me to use a stain protector all over the fabric part of the bag because dark colors can easily rub off on it. I listened to her, after I wore a pair of new navy blue pants and got a nice hue of blue on the back side of my bag. I was able to get the blue out of my bag and immediately grabbed a bottle of Scotch Guard and sprayed my bag accordingly. Since then, I’ve spilled coffee and Jamba Juice on my bag without any new stains.
Overall, although on the pricey side (it is a designer bag afterall), this is a great bag that is comfortable to wear, fits everything, and gets compliments all the time!
