One of the perks to working at a vintage shop is being surrounded by beautiful things and getting to buy them before anyone else! I am now the owner of the most beautiful vintage handbag I have seen…and I have a feeling it may not have been used, as it is in pristine condition.
While I did not buy this bag the first time I saw it, I had been lusting after it seen first laying eyes on it. I may have even gasped when I saw it on the shelf, sitting there so modestly. I was so surprised it lasted as long as it did in the shop. Each week when I came in for my shift, I would look to see if it was gone yet. I expelled a sign of relief when I saw it had not sold yet.
I decided it was finally time to make it mine, when I purchased the Downtown Dames swing dress from Pinup Girl Clothing. I got the dress to wear to see Guys and Dolls. The blue in the handbag was a match to the blue of the dress, so of course I had to finally get it! I can’t believe that I forgot to take a photo of my outfit, so you will just have to wait until next time to see the pairing.
This handbag was an absolute steal for the condition it was in…which is practically perfect. This is another reason why I was so surprised no one had snatched it up. I got a little discount which made it even sweeter. I plan to only use this beautiful handbag on special occasions, in order to preserve its beauty.
This divine handbag was purchased at Swish Vintage downtown. Swish has so many gorgeous vintage handbags from the 1920s upwards, all in varying condition; from the ones that have been very loved, to ones that may have only used used once or twice. Go, Kittens, and see the wonder of vintage handbags at Swish!
