Gucci Sucks!

Gucci, to me, has always been the Mercedes-Benz of handbag brands – iconic, luxurious, and highly coveted. I had a few vintage Gucci bags given to me throughout my life, but on a trip to Italy in 2005, my mother bought me my first, brand spanking new Gucci hobo. I fell in love instantly, clutching my new bag tight, (receiving many strange looks from my boyfriend I might add), and promised to take really good care of it. So what happened? Only several months later I began to notice some minor wear and tear. Now look at it!

I’m so pissed off that such an expensive bag from such a notable brand could get this damaged just from the friction of being carried on my shoulder. I mean, I’ve bought bags for way less money, and used them the same way and to this day they are still in pretty good condition. Less than two years later and the Gucci I so loved, looks as if it’s been ripped to shreds! And I didn’t even carry it everyday!

What do you think? Is it time for my love affair with Gucci to come to a bitter end?

    You know, I’ve heard that high end brands have faltered in quality in the past couple of years. Here is clearly the evidence. How terrible for you.

    something similar is happening to my prada wallet 🙁 it’s fraying at the corners!

    i’ve never had a problem with a marc jacobs bag though…

    That is just terrible I would be so angry. I totally understand how you feel since it brings back bad memories of my Kate Spade wallet that frayed….
