Bagercise with Rachel Robinson

Gucci Soho Disco Bag Review

I’ve had a long-time love affair with Gucci and although I’ve reviewed two other Gucci bags I own (the Bamboo Shopper and Lady Stirrup, I have yet to review my most beloved Gucci bag.

Fendi ecommerce launch

It’s somewhat rare for a brand not to have e-commerce in this day and age, but the luxury fashion industry still has quite a few holdouts. That is no longer the case for Fendi; just this week, Fendi.com opened up its online shop, including a large variety of the brand’s most coveted bags.
