Gucci Bag Swap

Just last week I did a Gucci bag swap with my mom. My mom had been complaining about this black bag since its a bit hard to open so last week when I went home, I finally traded my version of this bag (brown instead of black, brown leather strap instead of chain, and the bigger size made it more day appropriate) for hers. My mom got this bag in the summer of 2003 when we were in Italy and I bought my version April 2004. I was always hesitant to trade with her since I wasn't sure how often I would get to use this bag but I've outgrown the day version and matured into this version thats more suitable for nice evenings out on the town. Last time I went out with friends, I was amazed at how little trouble this bag caused as I danced the night away (with it on my shoulder the entire night) and its also surprisingly roomy...I was able to fit my big ass cell phone and my camera in there without feeling like I was breaking the bag. Oh, and coincidentally, I was just watching the last season of Friends this weekend and realized, Rachel has the smaller version of this bag in red :)

I came across this blog while searching for the red gucci bag that rachel was carrying on the last season of friends! I love the bag! Could you tell me what the style of the bag is called? I'm in constant pursuit... :) Thanks!

Hi Elisa,

I'll have to do some research to figure out the name but what I can tell you is that this motif is Gucci circa summer 2003-spring 2004. My mom bought this small black version summer 2003 and I bought the bigger version spring 2004. That should narrow it down somewhat. I'll post back when I find out the name :)
