Looking Back, Looking Forward

It’s time; time to take stock. In the past weeks, I have not consistently dedicated my Wednesday posts to Looking Back, Looking Forward. When I started this blog, the middle of the work week seemed like the perfect day to stop and take a moment to look back and look forward. So, Wednesdays were dedicated to featuring a vintage or modern classic piece from my collection.
Back on track. Today’s feature is 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. Check back tomorrow to see how.
I found this bag at the Women’s Closet Exchange in St. Louis. How is it that I have only recently found this store? They carry really high end goods in superb condition and guarantee authenticity (in case your fake radar is not sharp).

    That bag is so quirky-very Iekeine Stange.

    Wonderful bag! I’ve been wanting a tapestry bag for so long, I have yet to get one. Would you like to trade links?

    I just found a similar purse to this at goodwill! I'm curious how you've styled this since you purchased it!
