Every time I use it, I ALWAYS get compliments. I have to tell you all about it!
But first, do people really spend hundreds of dollars on bags??? This is what I see in magazines...
Seriously???? I don't get it. I would never spend more than $20 on a purse! I was at a yard sale last summer and snagged some great vintage purses. One of which was this vintage hand tooled Mexican leather handbag for $3.00! It was well taken care of. The front has these beautiful roses, and the back has the Mayan calendar.
I just saw a similar one on etsy for $30.00! I think I scored.
While I was hunting for vintage Mexican purses online, I found this cool blog. She has some really cool vintage (1940') Mexican clothes and accessories~and I love the fact that she wears them. I love the 1940's styles. I think we should wind back the clocks and reinstate the fashion of that era! Isn't this red swimsuit adorable?!
Speaking of Mexico, my sister lives right near the border in Tuscon. While I was visiting her there for the first time this summer, we went thrifting. We stopped at a cool consignment store and I saw my exact $3 purse there for $70! Mine was even in better condition!
Here we are in Tuscon...My mom, me, my sister Brooke, and my niece Sophie.
You know I love polka dots, so it was fun for me to see polka dotted cactus!
Wait, how did my adorable niece Olivia sneak in here??!!!
It was such a fun trip! Now I am totally in to vintage Mexican ware~especially cool handbags!
