“I remember my mom wearing these handbags when I was a child. These Gucci purses were a symbol of fashion, success and sophistication, everything my mom epitomized. She passed them down to me in my 20s, and looking back, I think about it like a rite of passage—where I went from being her little girl to her stylish and refined daughter.”
