Vintage purses and handbags are another fine example of timeless beauties. While trends may come and go, a vintage handbag remains just as elegant as the day it was made.
And while most of us might not be able to afford an authentic vintage designer Birkin bag, there are plenty of ways that you can add some old time fashion to your life – by means of vintage patterns of purses.
For example, the vintage beaded purse. Many of the original vintage beaded purses are in families that owned them when they were new – collector items and heirlooms passed down from generation to generation.
The beaded vintage purse might end up in the hands of all of the women in one family or be something that is eventually sold or donated to a museum. This heritage of good style is something that can be shared, even if your family doesn’t have an heirloom to pass down.
Vintage style purses and handbags can be found in a number of designer collections. For example, Coach purse vintage styles continue to be the top sellers among celebrities and non-celebrities alike.
A vintage mesh purse design is also something that’s being seen in many fashion magazines as well as on the arms of the rich and famous. With these styles comes a sense of refinement and class, something that’s missing from many of the trendy and ‘in your face’ handbag styles of today.
There are a number of styles that you can choose from when looking at vintage and vintage style purses. For example, you might want to choose a vintage black handbag that is simple and plain. Or you might look at a vintage alligator handbag that changes the overall look to being trendier.
You can also find a vintage Lucite bag that is clear and plastic in nature. This doesn’t always work for every outfit, but it certainly adds a striking feature to your chosen accessories. The vintage Bally bag is another possibility on your list of vintage shopping plans.
You can also find many vintage inspired purse frames that will allow you to create your own vintage style purses. With vintage purse frames, triangle shapes are the norm, creating that simple structure of the original vintage purses.
You can simply attach fabrics to these frames and create your own personalized purse. For patterns and ideas, go to your favorite internet browser and type in ‘vintage purses patterns.’ Many of these patterns are free, so you can make vintage affordable too. Have fun.
