  4. ^^That's a nice bag, look at that suede lining!

    Here are a few of my vintage bags:

    Whiting & Davis




    Bottega Veneta

  5. great thread! I don't have vintage bags but very interesting... I wish everyone would post pictures! i would love to see everyone's collections!
  6. more 'new' vintage shoes

  7. I love those Ferragamo's!
  8. 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 :rolleyes:...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...

  13. 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.
  14. lol, I still haven't been able to get pics to post directly into a post. I have to attach them. So I'll join you in dorkhood then. We can be dorks together.
