Fatshion Faceoff: Vintage Bag

The Fatshion Faceoff theme this week is one of my favourite things to buy- a vintage handbag. There is nothing that gives me more of a thrill than finding a fabulous, well preserved glomesh bag. I have a bit of a problem, a definite glomesh addiction. This silver beauty is my absolute favourite:

Skirt: Nerd Alert Creations via Etsy
Belt: ASOS Curve
Tights: We Love Colours
Flats: Rubi

How totally rad is this skirt?!? I am a total closet nerd at heart and fell in love with this etsy shop the minute I saw their Doctor Who inspired goodies- and all custom make-able up to a size 44 inch waist! They have the coolest range of funky print skirts and aparons, I can't wait to jump back on and get a few more!

I love dressing up gorgeous glomesh bags with funky modern outfits, its like wearing a clash of decades! This particular bag is one of the originals from the early 1960's late 1950's. You can totally imagine the type of glamours parties they may have been to in the past, holding a pack of cigarettes, glass compacts and some folded notes. Now I carry my iPhone, credit card and chap stick in them! I feel honoured every time I add one to my collection. Like carrying a piece of history with me forever!

Check out all the Fatshion Faceoff ladies!
