The other day I decided to fly into a Goodwill before going grocery shopping. I hadn’t been in a Goodwill for a good long while…I was feeling the pull. It was the right decision. I found this Valentino Miss V, 100% wool, Made in Italy Fall blazer for $5.99. When I saw it I immediately thought of my new JJill long brown skirt. And I had a funny feeling I would have a handbag to pull it together. Here is how it all turned out (yes, I am back in the bathroom studio for self-portrait time).
I think I prefer this vintage faux gator bag with it for a nice contrast. I truly forget how much I love this handbag…the color, the function, the size–it is splendid! And from France. : )
I also tried the jacket with another bag:
Maybe it is just a little too much dark brown? I bought this bag off Ebay a few months ago thanks to Jill from Everything Just So. She hosted a “How I Wear My…Everyday Bag” and featured her new “Marc by Marc Jacobs Globetrotter Mini Rei” and I loved the shape and style of it. Here’s the lovely Jill and the real deal:
And she wears it so well!
A few days after that post, I was cruising around on Ebay and found my vintage dark brown bag–similar in look and style. And only $30!! I get such a kick out of shopping vintage.
Have a lovely Monday!
