Giveaway II: Vintage Beaded Handbag [Closed]

Two more days to go!

On Monday, I brought you something blue.  And, if you haven’t already entered, there is still time to enter to win a pair of Amrita Singh Sunset earrings in turquoise.  Details available in the Facebook Page Launch and Giveaway post.

Today’s giveaway brings you something old. Get in style this fall with a vintage frame bag. The bag has striking details like a floral pattern accented by beads, subtle hints of gold, a kisslock closure, foldable metal top handles, and a removable metal chain strap. A bag like this can jazz up any look.  And, you do know that top handle bags are a must-have this fall, right?

I purchased this bag at the Women’s Closet Exchange, a St. Louis-based resale shop with a reputation for making designer goods affordable and available to everyone.

You’ve seen me pose with this bag in the following shot, but I’ve never actually used it because I’m sensitive to metals and the handle is metal.  A bag this jazzy needs a home and an owner who will show it off.

Posing with your future vintage bag.  If you look closely, you will notice
that I have a handkerchief wrapped around the handle, so I can hold it.

    This bag awakes the fashion trend and who can resist its overwhelming appeal?It is a piece of art and chic enough to turn your head, and the different color schemes make the bag out of ordinary sense..
