Gucci Jackie Soft (1)

Gucci has been a handbag highlight for me for what feels like seasons on end. From Bright Diamante to Fringe to Bamboo, each new collection has found a way to win me over. Now, Gucci has sealed my everlasting love with the Jackie Soft collection, a nod to the house classic Jackie bag.
