Gucci vintage handbag- Christmas present to me!

A big hello to you all!! I do so hope you all had a very Happy Christmas and are enjoying the rest of the holidays- fortunately for me, I am not back until next Tuesday-hurrah!!
Before Christmas, I was really excited to find a gorgeous vintage Gucci handbag which is in a classic flapover style- bang on trend for this season too!!

The first picture is the Gucci 1973 medium flap bag, with double G detail, currently available on Gucci's website now for £1520-totally gorgeous, but well out of my price range! It just goes to show how style does goes round in a cycle-the two designs of these handbags are so very similar, decades on:


Which is why I always love designer vintage pieces-for a fraction of the price and with its clean classic lines, this is certainly a real style investment purchase which will never date:


I love the gold G clasp fastener and as well as a few compartments it also has the added feature of a detachable strap so it can be used as a clutch too! With my Chanel no5 parfum from hubby for Christmas too I've been very fortunate indeed!!

I hope you all received some really lovely presents this Christmas and I'd like to take the opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year and a peaceful and successful 2012. Many thanks to all my readers who either read, comment or follow-your views are very much appreciated and please feel free to chat to me on twitter too-I've just signed up!!
