Vintage Accessories

For me the term vintage means “rare”.  Having an item to old to be considered modern (now), but old enough to be considered antique (aged), a possession that sets you apart and makes you stylishly different. It is a great feeling knowing you have found a classic piece from a quaint shop.

There is definitely something to being of a certain age, when all you need to do is open your own closet door to find treasures from the past. But, what is absolutely fabulous is when you can go to your friends’ and rummage their closets to find original pieces as well!!!!

Today, I am at Quy’s home and we are trying on vintage purses in various sizes. We enjoy these bags when traveling, but more importantly these accessories may be interchanged and used for an evening out or to dress up an outfit for work.

    1. Welcome to Stylish Heath!!! While I do consign items, usually not the vintage pieces. I will stop into a consignment shop to scout out possible treasures!!!

  2. K, although I’m not too sharp when it comes to fashion these handbags are very attractive. Also I cannot access your Saturday post to Xmas in July. And lastly my friend “the primeau” cannot access wordpress from his smartphone for some reason. Keep up the good work.
