    Vintage evening handbags...

    Advertisements
    My husband's grandmother passed along one of her vintage evening bags to me a while back, and we have a cocktail attire event coming up... I'm thinking of using it to pop a plain black dress.. it's a small silver beaded clutch...

    What's your opinion of vintage bags? Love them or hate them?? I love this one especially for the sentimental value this one carries. (I adore his grandmother most of the time.. )

    Well, I'm what I am and I'm what I'm not
    and I'm sure happy with what Iíve got
    I live to love and laugh alot
    and thatís all I need

    The story behind this one is that she used to carry it when she and grandpa would go out dancing, long before they had kiddos... so I'm assuming that it's from the late 40s early 50s...I could care less how old it really is though, I thought it was really cool that she passed it along to me. Neither of her girls had a place to use it or liked it. It's been sitting in the box it was in when she gave it to me for a good while now...

    Thanks, you think it'll work with the dress I showed you? I want to dress it up, but don't want it to be too much..

    Thanks... She gave me one other one, but it's no where near as old or pretty as this one.. I hope she knows how much I really appreciate that she passed it on to me.
