The Gucci Lookalike: Mango Gold Jacquard Floral Chain Strap Bag

So one rainy day during the week I was online doing my usual creeping on the Asos website when i noticed this yellow gorgeous beauty. Considering I had been so obsessed with the color yellow the past month it wasn’t a question for me. I made my first impulse buy of the year. It wasn’t too bad. The item was not high end luxury so as long as I don’t make impulse buying a habit I’m alright I guess. Check out more pics below:

Holds all of my essentials: Le Specs sunglasses, Kate Spade cardholder, keys, mints, 2 pouches that hold lotion, hand sanitizer, mirrors, argan oil and lip products

Why do I like it you ask? It’s something about that bright vibrant print and how the yellow color blends with the flowers it just immediately catches my eye and I think it’s the perfect statement bag for summer.

What I noticed immediately is how alike the bag is to the Gucci GG Marmont floral jacquard shoulder bag which may I also add retails for $1,790. Since I wasn’t ready to shell out almost $2k for this particular bag the option to get a lookalike from Asos for only $95 was a definite yes no questions asked. So you see why I was up to no good this week ordering things that I know I don’t need. It was worth it though I love it and I get a lot of compliments on it.

As far as what I have been wearing the bag with, this weekend I kept the outfits simple so that my bag can be the star of the show. Today I wore a white button down from Ann Taylor, black pants from CottonOn, and black mules from Target. Saturday I wore the bag with denim, white top from CottonOn, and nude sandals from Target.

Pros

Easy to open and close

Gorgeous print, looks exactly like the online photos

Fits all of my essentials

Chain strap is the perfect length (I’m 5’4)

Doesn’t feel super heavy

Cons

The bag does get a few snags on it (hard to explain just see pics below) so I’m not sure how long it will last but we shall see!

What do you think about the floral jacquard print?

Be on the lookout for new blog posts coming soon 🙂

Thanks so much for reading.
