Flashback Sunday

Blouse: Thrift Skirt: Thrift Purse: Thrift Tights: Nordstroms

This outfit is really all about the purse. I found it fast week at a random thrift store in Orange for $4!! Although I guess it's not technically a purse, but rather a briefcase with a long strap. Either way I just adore it. It's rare that I find a purse big enough to stick all of the stuff I carry around in and this one has plenty of space.

I can't believe so many of you have already entered my giveaway. I am enjoying reading all of your thought provoking answers. I knew it was an interesting question but some of your answers have blown me away. You still have until Wednesday so don't be shy!

PS Sorry if I sound a bit scatter brained. I have a lot on my mind this morning.

Certainly all about the bag! Although, those amazing bell sleeves are nothing to sneeze at.

And, I just have to say it. Even though it might be creepy. But I had a dream that my boyfriend and I went for a nice glass of wine and you were at the table next to us. Then you had a horribly tacky Southern accent that I couldn't understand. That was the bulk of it.

But I had to get that off my chest.

Oh wowowow. I really love this. I love the bag and what appears to be a really cool print on the bottom of your shoes!!! This has a very 40s feel :) <3

Charmalade said...

That purse IS lovely... and looks like it can actually hold more than a wallet. I also really like this outfit, because it's so quintessentially YOU! A mix of Annie Hall and 90s-turned-modern chic. :)

As usual, I am at once loving your look and hating you for being far, far more old school fabulous than I could ever hope to be myself. The purse is amazing. I love that it's so big!

Are you kidding 4$ for this fabulous purse bag? I'm so sad about the fact that you can't find flea markets or vintage shops in Brazil. I will never find a great item like this for a afforable price in the mall. By the way, I like your outfit, too. Not just the bag. ^^
