Indulge a little...
I made the mistake of going on Etsy.com today and sure enough I found myself scanning dozens of pages of vintage bags (I swear, just to look..heh). There were a few etienne bags that I considered, but this one ended up catching my eye...

How adorable is this?

1960s, genuine leather, top handle and chain shoulder strap. Three compartment interior.

And a little attached green leather wallet on the inside.

Of course I bought it ...at least it was on sale.
I will most definitely post my own pictures once I receive it in the mail.

Here are a few of mine:

Etienne Aigner from late 70s


Gucci (my first! bought in Gucci in Rome) it's in TERRIBLE shape because after moving a few times, I just found it. Don't know if it's too far gone to salvage or not, but I saved forever for it way back when and I will have it always.


Another Gucci from early eighties


Coach from late eighties - maybe 1990


Vintage ostrich wallet


Vintage evening bag


Trying again...

Thanks gga! Sorry about the pics - I tried to post them like I always have before with a link and the [ img] things and for the first time, it didn't work! So I learned the paperclip thingie (sort of) but looks like I shrunk them too much. I will try to learn thumbnails next.

I am a dork.
