#BagHabit - Gucci Marmont Mini


The Marmont Mini has been on everyone’s must-have list for a while now – and for good reason. It’s clean lines and classic shape mean this design that will stand the test of time. But for almost a thousand dollars, is it worth it? Yikes!

I’ll be honest – I went back and forth on that for a while. I knew I wanted one, but I wasn’t sure if this tiny handbag was worth the dent in my wallet. In the end, I went for it – and I’m glad I did!


For such a small bag, the Marmont is crazy versatile - I carry it as a shoulder, crossbody, or clutch, and I can attach it to a separate bag using the key ring. The fun green color I purchased adds a unique, trendy feel to an otherwise classic bag. Plus, the detachable chain strap allows me to dress the bag up or down - so I can wear it with jeans, or rock it for a night out on the town!

Pros

  • Buttery soft Matelassé leather looks and feels super luxurious

  • Easy-to-use magnetic closure

  • Detachable chain strap works with a variety of outfits – dressy or casual

  • Antique gold hardware adds a timeless feel

  • Perfect size when you need only the essentials

  • Cute heart-stitched design on back of bag adds a feminine flair

Cons

  • The leather marks easily and quickly picks up scuffs and scrapes if you’re not careful

  • No internal or external pockets means limited storage

  • In true “mini” fashion, this bag doesn’t hold much – cell phone, keys, and credit cards, at most

  • The bag opening is tight, making it difficult to reach in and grab what you need

  • Beige lining stains easily, so I wouldn’t recommend carrying lipstick, ink pens, or other items that have risk of bleeding onto the fabric


Overall, the Marmont is a solid investment. Despite its limitations, the classic design means you’ll hold onto it for years.


I’d rate this versatile little bag 3 out of 5 stars!
