I was planning on sharing my must-have spring pieces with you today, but I got behind on work, so instead, I’m sharing two items I want in my closet right now. My love affair with Gucci shouldn’t come as a surprise to any of you; I was already a fan before Alessandro Michele took over, and with his reinvigoration of the brand, I fell even further down the rabbit hole.

Gucci Dionysus Embroidered Supreme GG Shoulder Bag

When the Dionysus was first released, I loved it. Now I love it even more, and though I have affection for many renditions of the bag, I am fully committed to only one: the Gucci Embroidered Supreme GG Shoulder Bag. With its lips and lightning appliques, trompe l’oeil sequin embroidery and hand-painted edges, the bag showcases everything Michele’s Gucci embodies. I love the whimsy of the embellishments atop classic GG supreme canvas. If this version doesn’t work for you, there also some very simple options, as well as others that are just as over-the-top. Buy this one via Neiman Marcus for $3,800.

I’ve also fallen for Gucci shoes recently, though, truth be told, I’m not really a shoe girl. Growing up (and now, being back in) Florida means a lot of sandals, and I go pretty casual with my shoes down here. But, a slip-on mule from Gucci is much nicer than my typical shoe look but still incredibly easy to wear. Gucci hit it big with these mules accented with fur, but I want the plain black version. They’d be easy to wear with most of my wardrobe and are still so cool. Buy via Neiman Marcus for $595.

    Megs- I’ve been a Gucci fan my whole life. As a high school student circa 1979-1980, I saved my babysitting money for my first Gucci tote (think 79-80 prices). I even have a vintage clutch of my Mom’s from that era that I use often. I will have to share a picture soon.

    • Ah yes please do share a pic, I’d love to see! One of the first bags I helped my dad pick out for my mom when I was really getting into bags was the Horsebit Hobo (she gave it to me so I have it still!). Love seeing other people’s collections and hearing about their love for a brand!

        If you want to see late 1970s photos, here are two showing the “it” bags out on the town with older friends. Back then it was a hot contest between the Dior and Gucci canvas logo bags. If you were a regular on the disco scene, you really wanted to have one or the other (for some reason, young women took sides — hardly anyone had both, even if they could afford them).

        I am finally getting around to posting Megs. The bag is almost in perfect condition, though there is some wear on the inside. i remember being so excited when my Mom let me take this to a high school dance. Enjoy!

    Gucci is so hot right now.


    Hi Megs, you turned me on to Gucci with your Bamboo shopper tote which I got in RED. That is my first gucci bag and ever since then, I’ve bought the Jackie shoulder flap in Maroonish Wine color and a Large gucci clutch in green python. Last month I stepped inside the Beverly Wilshire Gucci store and I was in gucci heaven! so many new beautiful bags! I’m not a huge fan of this particular one you like but the red and the green floral Dionysus did catch my attention.

    The other two new styles that I really was drawn towards are the Dionysus top handle bag in black green red combo even though i wish the black part was navy blue. And the other one is the Gucci Tian GG Supreme Boston bag with the brown handles!
