    Default Gucci Dionysus Snake Embroidered Bag

    Gucci Dionysus Snake Embroidered Bag.jpg

    Handbags can do more than hold our stuff and look pretty. For me, handbags can actually bring back memories. And when I say memories, I often mean strange memories that have absolutely nothing to do with handbags. When I saw the Gucci Dionysus Snake Embroidered Handbag, this is exactly what happened! The setting: Costa Rica. I was casually looking through a first aid kit. All of the instructions were in Spanish and I kept thinking to myself, boy I hope no one needs first aid! In the box was a vial. It was the only thing that had words on it that I could read (I took French in high school). The label said "Anti-Coral". Wait, what the heck is Anti-Coral? After looking at some pictures, I realized that it was a vial of antivenom for a coral snake bite. See, I told you it was a strange memory!

    As strange as my memory is, it does make sense when you think about it. Just look at this bag! It has the classic Gucci signature print, of course. But front and center is a very colorful snake embroidered directly onto the flap closure. If you remember the rhyme, you will know that this is a coral snake ("red touch yellow, kills a fellow"). The red, black, and yellow strips are rather striking. Overall, I think this is a gorgeous piece. Then again, I happen to love snakes (even if this happens to be a venomous one). This bag would certainly make a statement, although I don't know how practical it would be for everyday.

    The Gucci Dionysus Snake Embroidered Bag is available here:

    I am terrified of snakes! This bag is a definite NO for me. lol

    *I do love snake print but it has to be smooth, not scaly.

    I also wondered what Jennifer thought.

    I want to add that I do LOVE the shape and style of this bag, just not the snake.

    Not too sure about the snake either although I do admire the way this shoulder bag was put together.
