I Adore My Vintage "Gucci" from Smashingbird

Gucci AW11 available in four colours 

Those of you who know me well are well aware that in a perfect world, I would have bought the new cane handle Gucci... I have a large hobo style one that is years old and I adore it, but I love the structure of the newer version.

I have been seen lusting and stroking it in Selfridges, whispering  "One day you will be mine my precious" ... 

I have enjoyed an extremely social week, not that I am complaining, it just means that I have been unable to write, or read many posts.  Sunday I did notice however, that my gorgeous fellow blogger Becca  Smashingbird  had a few new items for sale on her vintage outlet. 

This little beauty caught my attention immediately, apart from the fact it is bright red, which is something I am always drawn to.  It has the coveted cane handle and the styling is almost identical to the new Gucci AW11, so at £8 I had to take a chance...

It arrived yesterday packaged beautifully, in black tissue paper and lace ribbon, that would rival any Net a Porter wrapping and I adore it.  Inside it is even nicer than a Gucci, it has three separate compartments, each with smaller pockets, it is leather lined and in fabulous condition. 

The colour is gorgeous these photos do not do it justice, I have also played around with some tassels, just to give it the option of the Gucci styling.  These I removed from a pair of Russell and Bromley over the knee boots, that I have had for years.  Now I keep adding them to belts and bags when I feel like funking things up a little.
