I’m backkkk! I know I know, it has been a while but boy I was feeling so sick this past week. So I’m sorry guys for my lack of uploading new stuff up on the blog because of me feeling sick. That’s the reason I have been slacking. My energylevel was so low that I just wasn’t able to do anything. But I’m feeling much better now so I’m back!!! Never the less a very special online purchase came in this week. You just can’t imagine how hard it was for me to not wear the bag already but it just wasn’t possible because of the way I was feeling.
Remember my last post about belt bags and which one I should choose? I you haven’t read it I will link it here for you: Blogpost Belt bag/Fanny pack obsession, help me choose which one to get! #fashioninspiration
So I talked about the fact that I’m obsessed with belt bags at the moment, and that I have been for a while now. I was contemplating buying one but I was having a hard time choosing between the Prada belt bag or the Gucci belt bag. I even put up several Instagram polls to let my followers help me decide which one to get. It didn’t help me that much bacause it turned out to be 50/50.
First I wanted to order one of them online but I was so unshore that we decided to go to the actual stores to check the bags out. I will insert some pictures here where we are visiting the P.C Hooftstraat in Amsterdam where all the luxury shops are. From Prada and Gucci till Louis Vuitton and Chanel.
The trip to Amsterdam wasn’t that succesful unfortunately. The Gucci bag was sold out everywhere (crazy right) and so was the Prada one. I did manage to try both bags on in different colors so I could get an idea how it will look on me. I initially wanted to go for the Prada one because I think it is more practical because of the fact you can wear it as a beltbag, and because of the chainstrap you can also wear it as a crossbody bag. The Gucci belt bag you can only wear around your waist. But if you just strap it sideways on your body it could work as a ‘crossbody’ as well. In the end it also came down to prices. The price diffrence between the two is enormous in my opinion. The Prada one cost 500 euro more and I think for what you are getting it is a bit overpriced. Still absolutely beautiful but overpriced. And yes of course I’m fully aware that both bags are not cheap and a lot of money of course. Designer bags do not come cheap. But like I said before on my blog, I made a decision a long time ago that I rather spend my money (our money lol) on 1 thing that I really really love and will have forever because of the great quality, then to spend it one a thousand cheaper items and wear them maybe once or twice. Best tip of life! Seriously. And I really do love all my more expensive items and I use them everyday.
So you guessed it! I went for the Gucci GG Marmont Belt bag in black leather and I’m so happy that I did! I love it! I had to order it online because it was sold out everywhere.
I ordered it on Farfetch and it arrived within a few days.
What do you think? Do you like it or is it a no go for you. Let me know. I will be styling up this bag soon on the blog 🙂 and of course the bag is linked down below.
Thank you so much for reading and I wish you all a very merry christmas and a happy new year! Enjoy!
Until next time!
