I finally made up my mind and you guys are the first to know
If you’ve been reading my posts you know I’ve said I wanted everything from the Gucci Marmont Shoulder Bag to the Valentino Rockstud Spike Chain Bag and a few others in between. While I’ve always been a bit of an indecisive shopper, especially when I’m purchasing a bigger ticket item, working in the industry has made my indecisiveness so much worse. One of the perks of this job is that not only do I get to see and feel the bags I’m lusting for outside of a store environment, but oftentimes I get to actually carry them once or twice so as to give you an accurate review. The problem with this one perk is that I see so many different bags on a monthly basis and like any bag lover, I love them all! This makes it hard for me to actually commit to just one.
Recently I’ve been lusting after one of Gucci’s Newest Bags: The Ophidia GG Small Shoulder Bag. I first saw this bag back in May when Amanda reviewed Gucci’s Cruise 2018 bags. I was immediately drawn to the adorable vintage vibe, and classic GG print. I thought it was cute, but at the time I had my mind set on something else, so I really didn’t consider this bag to be an option for me until a few weeks ago. I went into Gucci with one of my friends to look at a bag she was considering and saw the Ophidia in person. I was a bit more intrigued, but admittedly still not totally sold until I was able to pull a sample of this bag and take it for a test drive.
I love this bag for many reasons—well beyond just the aesthetics. For starters, it’s pretty versatile. I think it would look adorable for a dinner out paired with a nice top and heels, but you could also dress it down with vintage jeans, a great sweater and sneakers. It’s roomy enough to carry what I need for the day, but not too roomy that it’s too big to wear out at night. It is the perfect in between size for me, and I am totally sold. It’s a complete classic, and I don’t see this going out of style anytime soon! I can’t wait to make her mine. Make sure you’re following us on Instagram as I’ve got my eye on a little wallet too, and you won’t want to miss my reveal!
The Ophidia Shoulder Bag is lined in silk and features an adjustable shoulder strap, and while this bag is technically a shoulder bag it works cross body as well. I am 5’9 and the bag hit me just at my hipbone, but on someone smaller it would work perfectly cross body as well as over the shoulder. The bag has pockets both on the front interior as well as the back interior as shown below. Overall dimensions of the Gucci Ophidia GG Shoulder Bag are 9.5″W x 7.5″H x 3″D, and it retails for $1,390 via Gucci.
