Handbags: The Accessory That Always Fits Right

A Vintage Nerd, Vintage Blog, Vintage Lifestyle Blog, Vintage Handbags

I have always had a fondness for purses and handbags. One of my first ones was a crocheted cross body purse with a plastic doll face on it. It's a very traditional  Latino Caribbean  handbag especially for little girls. Thus began my love affair with handbags. They are cute, fun, functional, and they always fit right.

Did I just say it fit right? What I mean is that there is no need to adjust a handbag. It will always fit. There is no waiting to grow into it or waiting to lose 10 pounds so it can fit better or hem it because it is too long. It is the accessory that will always fit right. The great thing about handbags is that you can it can add a huge splash of personality to your outfit. Whether they are vintage, retro, or modern they are the accessory a girl can really count on. And don't forget they are also practical as they carry all of our important essentials.

Here are some great places to find some pretty, kitschy, and vintagey handbags:

Where do you shop for your handbags? Do you find them to be the accessory you can always count on?

  1. These shoulder bags are very stylish yet practical. I liked during the war years how this was a kind of fashion look.

  2. The flamingo is slaying me with its fab, kitschy cuteness! :)

  3. I agree with Jessica, that flamingo is just adorable. I can just imagine designing an entire outfit around it. Does anybody else do that, or is it just me?
