This Gucci purse was a hand-me-down from a relative.The bag is light grey and navy with gold hardware. It has the Gucci logo covering the front, back and underside. It has a dark blue leather logo in the center.

It has a main compartment which zips closed. That part is quite roomy. I can fit my digital camera, my cell phone, a lip balm and hair clip in there. It also has a decent sized inner pocket that zips closed.

I really like the classic neutral colors. Grey and blue are some of my favorite shades to wear. This bag would be great for day-wear, with jeans and a white tee, or a multitude of other outfits since it is so neutral.

My favorite part of the bag has to be the unique side ruching. I have never seen a bag with sides that cinch in such a sculptural manner.

The bag is 9 inches wide and 6 inch long.The straps are about 1/4 of an inch across. I despise these straps! They are not supportive at all. To make matters worse, they are awkwardly long. I measured from one side of the strap to the middle making it 24 1/2 inches long (The total length of the strap being 49 inches).

The purse hits the side of my body at the point right under my butt. This is altogether too low of a bag for my liking! The proportions of the bag makes a shorter person appear even shorter!

Unfortunately, I never wear this bag. It's too bad because I love to look at it! I would wear it if it hit at a reasonable point on my body, and the straps were not so thin and long.
