I have never really been into vintage clothes/accessory shopping, but I can definitely appreciate the classic looks of handbag brands such as Gucci. Wearing all too much black in New York always has a girl like me wanting some kind of handbag to make an all-black outfit pop. So as I vacation back home, chilling out with my mom, I found this snazzy antique (as she calls it) Gucci tote. And I just had to take it.
It’s almost as old as I am, and the once gold hardware has started to fade. It’s also missing the long strap to turn it into a shoulder or even cross body bag. The inner lining has also been completely removed, by choice, as my mom told me the lining started to wear and deteriorate over time.
However, none of this phased me, not one bit. The bag still looks gorgeous…and vintage. And it’s that Gucci navy blue look that I haven’t seen in ages. It’s the perfect small-to-medium size bag that definitely makes a statement.
So score 1 for me, and better yet, my bank account. I mean, let’s face it, one of the better places to “shop” is in our moms’ closets.
