Are Guess Bags any Good?

I've seen a beautiful bag from Guess which I love, this is quite new for me as I've never been into fashion and bags really.

It's very pricey and I can afford it but I don't know if I can justify it IYSWIM. It's quite big and is made out of a plastic type material which feels very strong. Do you think Guess bags are a good buy? I've seen negative reviews about the leather coming off etc but this is more a plastic type. Do you think it's a waste of money. I'm also worried about the size of it. Any comments or advice welcome as this is really not my forte πŸ˜‚

I've found a picture if that helps. It's called a Guess Shine Dome Satchel Bag. I couldn't find the correct colour as the one I like is two tone but this is the shape and material. It's like a tote bag and quite big.

The quality is not good for the money.

I am not a huge fan of synthetic bags but at least the leather won't be a problem. For a lot less than this, Zara do excellent synthetic bags. They are perfectly good for everyday use. For about Β£100 I would be looking for leather, although a structured bag like this would be more than Β£100. Wait for the sales, just around the corner now. Many more options will be available.

Thanks for your advice. I was worried about the quality. BTW how do you know it is bad quality just by looking at the picture? Does it look cheap? I've never spent a lot on myself really and now I can finally afford a couple of nice things I'd like to become more fashion conscious. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I don't live in the UK but we do have a local Zara so will go and have a look today. My bag at the moment has a broken clasp so it keeps popping open so I'd like to spoil myself with something nice instead of the second hand stuff I keep acquiring.

Where do you live? You might be able to get it cheaper if you buy it from another country.

It sounds like you really, really like it and you need a bag. If you were buying something for your dc would you feel less guilty?

Hi Savoy, not much chance of that happening lol. I live in Cape Town so it's not easy to get things shipped from abroad due to customs. That's the problem I can easily spend a fortune on other people as I love buying gifts but also struggle at spend on myself, no idea why confused. I don't have kids and barely any bills now compared to when I lived in the UK as I had so little disposable income, but now things have drastically improved and I want to start buying nice things for a change and making myself feel good as I've always put myself second. I'm just worried that it will break in a couple of months as I can never keep things looking nice for some reason. Maybe cause I buy cheap tat πŸ˜‚ I want to look well groomed for once instead of a scruffy fool grin
