Need your opinion: The GAP Bag Revived-Trendy?

Hi Gorgeous People

It's been a while since my last post and I really missed this place. So full of style and smiles.
Anyways, as you are all prominent fashionistas, I turn to you for an opinion on a potential trend I reviewed:

The classic GAP bag revived: Now in leather

The classic GAP plastic bag has always been great for carrying all your random stuff around. So great, in fact, that people used to save their GAP bags and use them over and over for practically any purpose. I suppose that’s why designer Bari Brosh must’ve figured that the trendy women of today would love to see a bag that is reminiscent of our long-gone GAP days. Since we enjoyed the GAP bag so much back then-why not bring the comfy, casual look back in style?

Bari’s GAP inspired bags have the creative switch needed for reviving a nostalgic and cool trend. She replaced the fabric string handle with a metal chain, and the plastic was swapped with soft leather. They come in bronze, silver and black, and are, if I dare say, just as cool as the old plastic ones.

What do YOU think?

Hot or Not?
Hump or Dump?
Keep or Pass?
'Potential Trend' or 'Not A Chance'?
Classic GAP or Bari's Bags?

Please do share your thoughts!

Eagerly awaiting,

NOT, I'm not crazy about the leather version or the plastic version... I much rather wear more detailed and vintage looking duffle bags and totes... my opinion ;)
