Thrift Style Thursday – The Handbag

December 12, 2013

Hello, friends!  Guess what day it is??  No, it’s not hump day (and I’m not a camel, but I LOVE that commercial hee hee!).  It’s Thursday and that means it’s time for another Thrift Style Thursday post – woo hoo!!!


Today, we are styling the ever essential handbag!  I have thrifed all different types of bags and purses over the years, some of my favorites, in fact.  The bag I am showcasing today is a recent find from a local Assistance League shop.  It is an all-leather Nordstrom bag with a super cute gromet design on the front.


I actually didn’t even pick out this bag myself.  The most adorable lady saw me looking through the handbags (I am always on the hunt for great vintage bags at thrift stores) and she brough8t this bag over to me.  She said she saw it earlier but had too many bags at home herself but she thought I would like it.  She was right!


I don’t really have any white bags (I’m always afraid I’m going to get them dirty), but this one was just too cute to pass up!  Plus, it’s genuine leather so it should be easy to clean and the crossbody style is my favorite.


The details: green waffle-knit sweater (Old Navy) // gray slub long-sleeve shirt (Old Navy) // skinny jeans (Old Navy) // brown leather motorcycle boots (Target) // vintage gold cuff bangle bracelet (gift from Alexa) // vintage faux opal ring (Etsy) // white leather crossbody bag (Nordstrom; thrifted)


Well, I am off to figure out my Christmas shopping list!  What is on your wish list this year??

      Thank you!! And you’re so right, I don’t think I own a single pair of white shoes except some white Converse, but I’ve always firmly believed that Converse look better dirty! ;)

    1. The camel hump day commercial is possibly the best thing ever, next to Thrift Style Thursday obviously :)
    2. We need a TST commercial, theme song….something. I’ll start brainstorming muhahaha (evil laugh)
    3. You are adorable! That bag is precious and the outfit is so classic!
    4. You are a far braver soul than I for owning a white purse. I commend you.

    That is all.

      Hahaha thank you!!! And lemme know if you need any help writing that theme song. I’m pretty sure I’d be terrible and no help at all, but it sounds fun to me! ;)

    ooo girl, that is a really REALLY nice find. I am really scared to carry lighter colored bags too, because I’m a huge klutz and spill things a lot. But I would totally rock that crossbody you got, it’s awesome.
