Handbag Haven:

      My blogger friend Paris and I like to do something called "pretend shopping." Meaning we scour all our favorite web sites essentially "window shopping" from the comfort of our own homes and at the end of the venture we swap our favorite online finds. Anyway, while "pretend shopping" for vintage handbags on I decided to check out my own personal handbag collection and I realized I really don't need anything new! Sometimes instead of looking at all the things you don't own, its better to "shop within your closet." Rediscover items you forgot about or sell the items you no longer use at a consignment store! 

These are the hidden gems found in 
my stash of purses that I have been 
collecting over the last several years:

Handbags clockwise from top middle:
1: Lavender snakeskin embossed Michael Kors drawstring bag
2: Grey leather bag with gunmetal hardware by 
3: Chocolate brown leather vintage Gucci bag
4: Marc Jacobs studded "Large Single" bag 
(featured here)
5: White patent leather Kate Spade clutch (seen here)
6: Vintage BCBG Maz Azria gold clutch
7: Red vintage coach bag (last worn here)
8: Brown leather coach clutch
9: Hayden-Harnett for Target tan and gold 
shoulder bag (see what I carry in this bag here)
10: Random grey faux fur studded clutch scored 
at a vintage shop
11: Large black leather Chloe bag 


PS, don't forget to store your purses in their dust bags to reduce damage!
