I am a lover of the finer things in life. Fancy AF dinners, front row concert tickets, last-minute luxe beach trips… count me in! My affinity for designer couture started at a very young age, and now I feel so incredibly lucky that I am no longer window shopping and am able to purchase and enjoy high-end, designer pieces that IMO, are totally worth it.
This year, I’ve splurged on a few designer bags that I am so in love with. They were true “treat me” moments and let’s face it, I have had a whole lot of those lately.
But my favorite designer bag for everyday? The Gucci Diana Mini Tote. I consider it the “It-Girl” bag of the season. Let’s walk through its gorgeousness…
This Gucci Diana Mini Tote Bag is my most recent, and absolute favorite designer purchase. I spent my 31st birthday in Miami, and I knew I would be making a few high-end purchases during my stay. I walked up and down the streets of Miami’s Designer District, and tried some of the most infamous bags on the market right now. I stopped at Dior and tested out their iconic Saddle Bag, headed over to Prada to gawk at their Woven Logo Shopper Tote, which ultimately felt like an overpriced, crocheted beach bag that my Grama could have made for me. Then finally, I popped into Gucci.
I first saw the Gucci Diana bag in the seriously stunning inclusive campaign with Beanie Feldstein, and watched many of the top fashion influencers rocking this bag. I even recently saw my favorite gal from Selling Sunset carrying this gorgeousness, and it affirmed that I made the right purchase.
Fit For A Princess: The Gucci Diana Bag Is Classic, On-Trend & Worth The Splurge
Yep, you guessed right…the Gucci Diana Bag got its name from the one and only iconic Princess Diana. When Gucci first launched their iconic bamboo handle bag in the early ’90s, it was one of Princess Diana’s favorites. She was photographed numerous times toting the bag and it truly was a statement then just as it is today. The bag is a nod to the history of Gucci.
The Gucci Diana Tote Bag comes in three sizes, and for me, the mini was my favorite. I love how petite it is, yet, it still fits my phone, credit cards, lipstick, mascara, and hair ties: all the essentials for a #singleasapringle 30-something. I’ve already worn this bag many times, and get so many compliments every time I take it out.
What makes Gucci’s Diana bag iconic are the bamboo handles that are first torched to become the perfect U-shape and then held together with accented leather straps.
The Gucci Diana Mini Tote comes in many stunning colors, and I opted for what felt the most timeless to me: camel. The exact bag I purchased is a limited edition that comes with the iconic oversized Gucci strap as well as several other accessories that make the bag feel like it’s a four-in-one.
What I love is that the bag is so incredibly versatile, and it looks just as good dressed up as it does with a pair of black leggings and graphic sweater.
I am so in love with my new Gucci Diana mini tote bag! It will certainly be a part of my forever closet. I can’t wait to one day pass it down to my future mini-me.
I’d love to know what designer pieces you are loving right now, and let me know if there is anything you think I should try!
