Wear and Tear Update - Gucci GG Marmont Velvet Mini Bag - emthaw

Wear and Tear Update - Gucci GG Marmont Velvet Mini Bag


I purchased this purse on November 12th, 2017. It has been 1 year and 3 months since I have had this purse and it is still in great condition.


The packaging


Retails for USD $1,590. 

I have not edited the following photos to represent the most accurate color and wear and tear of the purse. 



For storage, I always keep my purses in their dust bag. I do not keep them in their boxes because that is too much of a hassle. I do keep the boxes though. 


On the back of the purse, there is an adorable heart.


The chains have not rusted and the gold color remains intact. 


On the inside of the flap, there is denting in the leather due to the opening and closing of the purse. The wear and tear is normal and this is not too bad. This is the condition being that I am gentle with my items. 


This part of the purse is where the most noticeable wear and tear is. There is an indent on the velvet material due to the weight of the chain. This does not bother me because it is normal and when I wear my purse, it cannot be seen.



The sides of the bag are still in great condition. Many people who have this purse complain that after some time of usage, there tends to be discolouration of the velvet on the sides of the bag. I did not experience that issue. 



The inside lining is a gorgeous pink. I do not throw coins or pens into my purse, therefore I have not stained the interior. 


Overall, this purse is quite low-maintenance and I highly recommend purchasing this bag if you have been eyeing it for a while. I was quite hesitant because I thought that I would have to use a lint roller frequently to manage the look of the velvet but this was not the case. I rarely ever use a lint roller for this purse. For these photos provided, I did not use a lint roller on purpose to show how my bag usually looks. Lint is always noticeable in close up photos but in person, it cannot be seen. Also, the shape of my purse still looks great. 

Many people also say that this is a "trendy" purse rather than a "classic" one - meaning that it could potentially go out of style one day. I do not believe this since the style of the Gucci GG Marmont Velvet Mini Bag is so chic and versatile. It can be worn 3 different ways: long chain on the shoulder, double chain on the shoulder, and crossbody. For a luxury purse, the price point is quite fair. I have gotten great usage out of this purse since it looks great with all outfits and suits all occasions. 

I hope that this wear and tear update was helpful for those who have been wanting this purse. 

Love,

Emily
