Even though I told most people I didn’t want to make my birthday a big deal this year, it ended up being a week-long celebration. I had an absolutely awesome time celebrating with all my friends! Thanks to all of you for making this a wonderful start to the year. Even though spending time with the people who mean most to me was all I really wanted for my birthday, I did get a few gifts.
I came across this vintage bag on my mecca for finding unique pieces, Etsy. Once I saw it, I had to have it! I had been looking for the perfect messenger bag for so long and this one has it all – great size, great colour and the gold detail and tassle on the zipper give it that extra edge that I love! So I used my birthday money and treated myself!
I found this bag in a shop called IKAHN, a shop based in Brooklyn that sells vintage pieces. You’ll find everything from clothes and shoes, to accessories and bags. I’ve always loved the idea of buying vintage pieces. I am naturally attracted to certain styles from the 70s and 80s and needless to say that I love owning something that no one else be carrying.
How about you, is your style more contemporary or vintage?
