Spring 2012 Fashion News: Why Vintage Bags Are ::IN:Style:: This Season
Welcome vintage purse lovers! Spring is upon us and several styles seen at the big fashion shows seem to say, “Retro seventies are IN”! And, nothing says retro for fashion lovers more than a great collection of vintage purses to accessorize with. Wearing “flower power” clothes and carrying vintage purses…sounds like heaven to me… : )
So, without delay…here are some cool vintage bags for your enjoyment…
This bag is a gorgeous drawstring purse of cowhide and cow fur. It is from the sixties and is has a very vogue appeal with any clothes from the sixties or seventies. Wear with a peasant top, hip-hugger jeans or flowered print dress for a pretty look. Also, it is amazing how well this bag has survived the times,…a very rare find, indeed!
Peace and love are what this cute drawstring pouch made of rabbit fur and suede seems to say. This purse looks practically brand new, except the embroidery inside shows the real age. The embroidery is of flowers and leaves ~ very groovy. This is one cool purse…
Coach purses are always in and this year is no exception! Here is a cute one that looks fabulous with anything seventies…many of the purses carried back then were small…just large enough to carry items to an outdoor concert or a day shopping. Makeup was minimal, so not a lot of room needed for lots of that! This look is simply, yet stylish. While this purse is sold, you may see more beautiful Coach purses in newprairiestore. SOLD!
If you’re nuts over coconuts or just enjoy the ZANY ~ this bag may be for you! Would look great at the beach or pool, also with a flowery sundress…these are my top choices. But, it is “just for fun” and shows a carefree attitude, a little bit of silliness, indeed!
Hope you enjoyed this journey through some unique vintage bags of the past…these styles keep coming back ~ for sure! So, until next time…CHOW!
