Vintage Bag Love


This bag is quite a find!  It's suede and leather and totally beaten up (in a good way).  It was in a huge PILE of bags I stumbled across at the Rose Bowl Flea last month.  It's Italian and had such special details I had to make it mine.  It has chunky hardware while still maintaining an elegant overal look but my favorite detail is the nearly intact turquoise silk lining.  I should have somehow painted that part too.  It needs some TLC, but I am happy to be it's new owner.  It's fun imagining who originally owned this and what did they carry around in it.  It is definitly a travel type bag as it expancds to be 3x the size!!  Objects can grow more beautiful with use and their signs of wear, well make them even more special. Every objects carries its' story ♥
