Break the bank: Gucci Bamboo croc bag

Break the bank: Gucci Bamboo croc bag

We love bags almost more than life itself here at The Bag Lady, but there still comes a point (and ten grand is definitely on the sharp end of it) where even we will draw the line at the crazy expense of it all. This new bamboo and crocodile bag from Gucci is one eye-wateringly pricey accessory that's been released in the past few weeks, and we're not sure what to make of it. Gucci have provided some of the most iconic handbags ever: the Jackie O, the Joy Boston and we're loving the new 'Snaffle' styles to bits. But this one just doesn't seem to justify the price tag. Bamboo is in at the moment, but is sure to be a passing fad and I honestly can't see this looking great in five years time. Even if £11k was not a lot of money to me, I don't think I'd want to invest in this handbag. How about you?
