Gucci Indy Large Python Top Handle

Something new for a change, instead of praising and admiring luxury items, lets take a moment to trash one :) Although Gucci has been hard at work trying to promote the Indy Top Handle bags as the latest must-have, most people just aren't giving in. I don't blame them. Although I like the overall shape of these bags, I absolutely detest the whatchamacallit tassels hanging off in front. Don't you agree that this bag would be so much more attractive if those cowboy-ish things were removed?! This bag also comes in a hideous array of color combinations...out of the kindness of my heart, I'm only showing you the most classy (and expensive) version! But perhaps the most infamously negative feature of this bag is its handle. Sure it looks kinda cool on display, in pictures, and on someone else's shoulders but the minute you try one of these suckers on, you'll realize just how uncomfortable the handle is. Not only does it add 5lbs to the bag, it probably will leave a nasty bruise on your shoulders. I actually tried this bag on back in February at Neimans and can honestly confirm the nasty rumors surrounding this bag. People who were dumb enough to buy into this bag most likely broke out in sweat after an hour of dragging it around and grimaced in pain as red sores began to form on their shoulders. Sorry Gucci but impractical bags with tacky tassels and color patterns just aren't that easy to sell...

I have 2 Gucci purses both black (no surprise there i'm sure).. One's a hobo with Gucci logo all over and the other is a leather evening purse with silver metal chain (like Chanel except no leather just the chain).. It must've been YEARS ago when I got them and I haven't seen any that caught my eyes since..
