I have three small bags I really like, I have a small slush fund and I'd like to treat myself for taking on a dinner and theatre weekend in London. I have three in mind: the mini Chloe I have always liked, the Gucci looks fun but not sure it will be a fav in a few years and the APC

I'm stuck, what would be your pick?

The Chloe

The APC

I love that Chloe mini.. That would be my first choice.

Another vote for the Chloe. Not keen on the APC it's a bit meh, like the Gucci but agree that it might date. Love the colour of the Chloe and think it's quite timeless. Ooh enjoy spending!

Gucci for me please.
Or Mulberry
too small ??
not sure about this one

I'd go for the Gucci, but I don't like any of those colours. I've seen that bag in muted metallic shades which are gorgeous.

The APC is a bit Home Counties and the Chloe is too 70s for me.

TiredLittleApple Wed 10-Feb-16 15:18:56

No more mulberry bags. My last two have been utter crap, leather, stitching.. I miss the days of Somerset made.

The Gucci in a metallic colour sounds interesting smile

I think it was in House of Fraser after Christmas in the sale, I seem to remember it had a chain rather than a leather strap so actually maybe last season? Unhelpful I know...

TiredLittleApple Wed 10-Feb-16 15:27:26

No it's helpful!

They have a wicked pink on Gucci.com

The also have this multicoloured beauty!! It's Python though blush if it was just multicoloured leather I would love it.

I love the Chloe, then Gucci second, the other one is kind of meh I think

massistar Wed 10-Feb-16 15:30:12

I like the Gucci in this colour:

Well each to their own.
If you 'love' it then get it.
If you 'like' it then keep looking.

TiredLittleApple Wed 10-Feb-16 15:37:20

I love the metallic colour of the Gucci one but don't want a metal strap for cross body.

I'm such a stick in the mud.

I have a bigger Chloe Marcie and it's great quality. I do find it heavy especially when loaded up for the day though. The mini looks good but I thinking want to go and try them all out somewhere rather than buying on line, as it might come down to something like strap length and a better setting on one over the other.

My mulberry Liliy is fab as well. It has a chain strap though and is much more of an evening bag than daytime.

AstrantiaMallow Wed 10-Feb-16 18:58:00

Chloe

I have two mini Marcies, gray and slate blue, my favorite bags. Great quality, have worn them almost daily for a couple of years now. They still look and feel like new.
Gucci is up and coming, but perhaps the painted canvas ones.

FrustratedFrugal Wed 10-Feb-16 20:17:11

Not going there but spring in the air? grin

HappyGirlNow Wed 10-Feb-16 20:43:38

Gucci! But then I'm biased as I have it and love it grin I have the black and going to buy the ivory for summer...

DiscoDancer Wed 10-Feb-16 21:37:29

Chloe! It's been on my wish list since it came out!

justasecond Wed 10-Feb-16 22:26:22

How funny op I am in the same bag dilemmaebetween the mini marcie in grey and the black disco. I am madly ebaying atm to fund it grin I think the marcie is more daytime, goes well with casual clothes and the colour is good for summer. The gucci can also be used for evening and is prob a little bigger. With my height 5ft 7 I wonder whether the marcie is too diddy?Also dh is abroad atm and could pick up the disco duty free making it closer in price to the marcie. Have you seen both irl? I have a black bigger marcie and love it, a very well made bag.
Sorry,that prob wasn't much help!

Ponymagic Wed 10-Feb-16 23:00:37

Watching with interest as have been eyeing up a grey mini Marcie but nowhere local to see IRL and am a tad worried it might be too teeny. If anyone has it (*Frustrated*) what can you fit in?

Anyway, Marcie gets my vote too!

amarmai Wed 10-Feb-16 23:02:22

Gucci is soo well made and lasts . Also love Coach=better price point , excellent quality and great details.

MrsRogerSterling Wed 10-Feb-16 23:03:37

The Gucci. I love it and think it can be a day or evening bag. I want one!

MotherBluestocking Wed 10-Feb-16 23:05:27

The Marcie has been around for ages whereas the Gucci feels fresher.

houseHuntinginmanchester Wed 10-Feb-16 23:34:26

The Chloe!! I have the big version of that bag in tan and I LOVE it smile

AmberNectarine Thu 11-Feb-16 09:53:05

I have the Gucci in navy. It's a really good size, you can fit loads in and it works for day or night.

The Chloe is nice but looks small and very much daytime.

I love the shape of the APC but the colour is awful.
