  3. Thanks! I’m enjoying the black one this week already and she’s got many oohs and aahs. It’s funny because it’s mostly from my male coworkers. Lol
     
  4. Very cool!

  5. The black one looks so pretty! I hope you can find more information about it! It’s always nice to learn about vintage styles :nuts:

    I did a Google search and apparently it just normally gets listed as “Cadena Lock (Kelly)” shoulder bag or something but I don’t know if that even is correct!

    Yeah, mainly it’s from the handful of other postings calling it that, for example:
    http://www.amorevintagejapan.com/fs/amorevintage/ao17265

    But I really don't know if that's just how they listed it (since it's the name of the lock I believe) or if that's actually the style name. I also found one that listed one with 1981 as the year, so it's an early 80s style maybe? I wish there's a way to find all old H catalogs, I would love to read through them all!

  13. Someone replied in the identify forum and said she has one. She said it’s called the “Kelly Lock”. Now we know! :biggrin:
