Gucci Dionysus Mini Shoulder Bag review
I’m really excited to share another review with you! I got a new bag a few months ago and did not share it with you until I was in one of my last outfits (see here). It is the classic Gucci Dionysus Mini Shoulder Bag and I am in pure love! I bought it at My Theresa in May and have been taking care of it ever since.
I’ve been a big fan of the Dionysus style for some time, as you probably know when he mentions it and includes it in wish lists, as they do so much cool! Have you seen the parrot version or the stunning Burgundy velvet option? My wishlist just got longer! But this report from me is on the taupe suede version, but the same goes for any fabric in this mini-shoulder style, I believe. I actually saw a girl in the city who wore this Monogram Canvas style bag, so we were almost twin and we looked at each other’s bags, ha ha! So look at my thoughts! If you have any questions, leave them in a comment too and I’ll get back to you.

I’m sure many of you already know about the Gucci Dionysus bags and how popular they are! The style is one of the most popular bags of choice for fashion bloggers and women in general, and the shoulder bag style is the most versatile of all, to be seen everywhere. this is the Gucci Dionysus Mini Shoulder Bag which is the smallest version of the classic bags. It comes in a soft taupe suede, but it is available in many different colors and fabrics, including canvas (see here) and leather. It has a square shape with the Dionysus clasp, a front flap and a large chain that is heavy and sturdy. I’m not sure exactly how the bag weighs, but it’s one of my heavier ones because of the chain and the clasp. It’s absolutely great, and when it comes to bags, I find it breathtaking! It’s definitely one of my favorites! Not only is it a classic that can be worn with everything, it’s also unique and detailed, so it’s definitely something special.
The hardware / details
As you can see, the focus is on the clasp of the Greek god Dionysus. It shows the two mythical creatures / dragon heads in horseshoe shape, which you press to open with the small clip on the side. It’s a pretty sturdy buckle that closes and closes safely and powerfully so it does not jump open easily. There are so many details that go into the carving of this clasp that can be seen in the photos, so it’s definitely a truly unique piece! The chain shoulder strap is made of the same metal and long enough to wear cross-body (more on that below), but also doubles to make it shorter. It is also made in Italy, like almost all Gucci products. It also has an embossed gucci stamp on the back of the bag. There are not many other details except the leather flap underneath the suede flap, which in my opinion gives the bag a gorgeous contrast!
The Inside & The Suede  Now the inside of the bag is really nice! The top picture shows the front door lifting to expose a secret pocket under the leather flap while the main door opens to the inside of the bag. I think the secret bag is really useful if you need to put some private things in your bag, and I always like reviews that give details about the hidden things that stores do not do, so I deliberately showed it to you action , The actual interior of the bag is just a tray, so there are no slip-ins or sections, but given its size, I do not think you need anything because you will not lose anything in this bag.
This special Dionysus Mini Shoulder Bag comes in the taupe suede I was desperately looking for, but it also comes in Black Suede in this version. There are also several sizes of this style and the larger version is probably what you’ve seen more of (see here), but since I love smaller bags, I’ve chosen this one. It’s a cow suede, so it’s quite sturdy and sturdy, which does not cause much damage when worn, but the chain leaves marks when it’s pressed against the back of the bag. The taupe hue is a beautiful brown that has mousy undertones, but it’s a warm brown that goes with everything. It was darker in person than I had originally expected after seeing online photos, but it is breathtaking! So easy to wear
The size & price
Now, as I mentioned before, this bag is the mini version, so it is suitable for shoulder and cross body and can be worn comfortably without overstraining your frame. The height is 15 cm or 6 “, the width is 20 cm or 8”, the depth is 6 cm or 2.5 “and the chain length is 124 cm or 49”, so you can see it is a really nice size for a compact bag. 8 “is actually a very common size for bags like this, very similar to my Celine Nano luggage bag, just not as big as these. It’s really the perfect size for me! If you are looking for a petite bag that has everything you need to carry your essentials, and that looks great, then that’s it!
Although it costs a bit of money, it costs £ 1180, but there are often discount codes sometimes for places that have it in stock. It’s not as expensive as the larger versions, and not as cheap as the canvas ones like retail for £ 1020. Originally I wanted the Dionysus Suede mini chain made of taupe suede, but it was only available in the US and could not be imported, no matter how hard we tried. It had a much lower price of around £ 700-800 and only came in black here, but I’m overjoyed that I ended up with this one because it’s so much better! Although, if you want a cheaper bag that looks similar, I recommend it!
4 ways to wear it
Now there are 4 ways to carry this bag and that has made me love it even more! The necklace is long enough to be worn as a cross-body, so it sits completely over your torso from the shoulder to the opposite hip, and the bag itself sits around your lap, at the perfect spot. You can either take it off the body and wear it on a full-length shoulder so that it is longer than a cross-body, or you can double the chain and wear it as a much shorter bag on the shoulder (shown above)). This double method is also great for carrying the arm crook or in the hand as it does not drag on the ground. It’s the perfect size for all these 4 ways to wear it and it’s the most versatile to go with anything you want to wear. I wear it with jeans and a t-shirt or shirt to make it more glamorous, or it’s just as well with dresses! It’s perfect!
Honestly, I’m sure you can see, I could not love this bag any more than me! I could make it a little easier so it would not be that heavy on my shoulder if I could, but that would take the fascination and quality away from it. It could not be a more perfect size, the design is flawless and so beautiful that you want to cuddle it, the color and suede are fantastic … There are no bugs to report! And the fact that you can carry it in several ways means that you basically have 4 pockets in one! What do you want more? It’s quite expensive, but if you compare it with the price of Chanel, Louis Vuitton or Celine, etc., it’s definitely on the cheaper end and the money is totally worth it, as the quality is second to none. There are no mistakes in sewing, no marks, no damage, no faulty workmanship or anything else. It’s perfect and I love it! I know it too, if you are looking for a new bag in the market. Do it that way!
