After some sleuthing, I found out (yes!) that these bags would be marked down from their retail prices and I could find them either at the boutiques or one of my new favorite places, the Gucci Outlet. As a result I quickly created a collection that I've grown to really like.
It's after Labor Day so sadly I must think about retiring this set for winter. But the bag itself is interesting with the birds on the front, it's a nice original design and something that wasn't duplicated elsewhere.
Next up is your basic known to everyone Gucci "double G" logo, but it has a twist with the tattoo heart print on the front.
I would be remiss if I didn't find something that was a little out of the ordinary, so I went with the tan messenger bag and flats. The inside of the bag is the creamiest suede ever.
