Wednesday's Fashion~~~Handbags/purses




So it's that day of the week where I post about Fashion.....Besides the shoes what makes your outfit complete? .....

                          A Killer Handbag



I love old handbags. I really don't care about name brands and what is in . I just love a handbag that is different ...unique.


Here are some hand bags that I found on the net from different decades

The following are some bags that are very very unique. I don't know if I would carry any of them but they are sure fun to look at.

       Kathleen Dustin Flora Bags~~~ These are definitely artistic

 This one is a no no in New York...too much of a chance to be dragged by closing train doors or muggers!

I could see a little girl loving this one

               This is very cool . You would need to be wearing something super plain and elegant and let this be the stand out piece.

Vintage Classic Cassette Clutch~~ Very cool but you'd need to be OK with everyone being able to see all the contents of your purse.

Here is one of my purses. It is 50 years old and in great shape. I hardly use it. My husband tells me I look like one of the actresses in an old movie whenever I use it...I'll take that as a compliment.



This is the inside. It was a surprise to me when I saw the color.




The gold printed stamp reads Saks Fifth Ave...





I always wondered who it belonged to ....maybe.......

                                                             

                                                                    Audrey?

  1. Purses are my weakness, like shoes are for some women, I can't resist them and have drawers full. Do you know you can make beautiful purses from placemats, and it only takes a few minutes? My DIL used to have a good business making and selling them, I posted them once.

  2. I LOVE that birdcage bag! Very interesting, all the designs out there. For me, I need a purse that I can find things in. No easy task!

  3. I like a bigger purse with a nice shoulder strap, lots of zippers and compartments so I can fit all of my 10 lbs of stuff in it. :-)

    Your purse is really classy!

  4. They are all interesting. I like looking at others carry cool purses. I seem to stick to my every day purses because I am familiar with where to put everything.

  5. I love the hippie-boho bag! I am dressing up as a hippie for Halloween and can't wait. :-) Ooooh...I love the red inside your black purse too. Very shiek.

  6. I'm always looking for the perfect bag. You could call me "bag lady" because I have so many. Really, my bag collection is out of hand...(no pun intended.)
