There is one item that has yet to fail me in my thrifting escapades. From large to small, vintage to modern, leather to canvas - I always manage to find a stylish spot-on handbag to bring my thrifty looks up to speed. Since I am in the process of moving I thought it would be fun to sift through all of my purses. I'm no Bag Snob but I do know what I like when I see it and apparently I'm a big fan of the "bucket bag" style because somehow I've come to own three...somehow;-)
I remembered these pictures I took of my best friend last summer carrying my favorite woven bucket bag (see more here). I love this bag because its practical in size, a lovely ox-blood red, and the texturing is phenomenal. It also fits right in with the 70s trend happening for summer and I can't help but imagine how divine it would look dyed navy blue with some silver stud detail. I'm definitely going to make this a staple item in my wardrobe so get ready for several repeat performances. I tend to treat my purses like I would my children, they get a little beat up and worn out, but it's only because I love them so much. Right mom?
