No matter how firm my resolve when it comes to curtailing my shopping expenses, I often find myself turning into milksop whenever I am presented with an excessively cute vintage style briefcase or luggage.
It’s the kind of bag I envision carrying when going on a trip to Versailles, Venice or Prague. It offers a whimsical, nostalgic and old-world beauty, thanks to its rustic illustration of the Eiffel Tower.
Without the modern contraption that is its retractable handle and supporter, this can easily pass up as an authentic vintage find.
I bet you won’t find anyone else lugging the same bag during your trips. Even if you do, that person is of kindred spirit, who has a penchant for vintage style finds as well.
Wear an equally charming bag to complete the over-all vintage look. Go for a 60’s style frock with long sleeves, a peter pan collar and full skirt. Wear a petticoat underneath. Don your low-heeled mary jane shoes. Heads will surely turn your way everywhere you go.
