Ever since I laid eyes on the Gucci Babouska Messenger Bag ($2,395? Sure, I’ve got that on me, actually…), I’ve decided that I absolutely need one… I even went as far as to justify one with the thought: “I’m moving into a huge city! What if I need to talk on my cellphone while I’m drinking coffee and walking? DISASTER! I need a cross body bag.”
I love the color, the straps, the versatility – everything!
This is the first piece of Jessica Simpson’s…. well, anything that I’ve ever bought. I’ve tried on some of her shoes, which I found dreadfully uncomfortable, but the sight of this beautiful bag persuaded me to give her stuff another try.
The bag arrived two days after I placed the order (!!!) and I was elated. It was the perfect color, the perfect size… The perfect bag! The price only hurt a little bit, as it was on sale from $108 to $97.20.
(Excuse the crappy photos, and the mess… I’m moving, how fun!)
Doesn’t look bad as a regular handbag, either!
It definitely holds a LOT of stuff! And I love the pink gingham.
My view, hehe!
I only have ONE problem with this bag. Two days after I started using it, it started getting this awful indigo stains on the PVC material that I can only imagine came from my jeans. But I’m unsure why it rubbed off, because my jeans weren’t wet, nor was the bag! Odd, and annoying.
I don’t know what to do to remove them! I’ve scrubbed the stains with a wet paper towel and color comes off onto the towel, but also stays on my bag! Grrr… I just wear the stained side towards me, out of sight.
- Gorgeous color and texture
- Can be used well as a cross-body, OR handbag
- Gingham is cute!
- Holds EVERYTHING!
- Adjustable straps
- Awful, stubborn stains
- Kind of annoying “Jessica Simpson” plaque on the side
So overall, I definitely like the bag… And if anyone knows how to remove those stains – please let me know! It’s made of PVC, not leather, so I’m clueless.
