bag inventory

When I moved I had to do a little inventory for my bags, because I just own so many. Because the apartment that I now share with my best friend has limited space, I had to narrow my collection down and leave major part of it in cardboard boxes at my parent's place. But, as a result of the inventory I wanted to show you dear bloggers my favourite bags that I use the most frequently:



Top 2 cluthches: first is a blue crocodile skin clutch from Australia, vintage from the 60's. I bought it from a tiny second-hand shop in the beautiful Blue Mountains. The second one is a lot newer, but still very dear to me because it has travelled with me to so many places, and yes its kinda worn down but I don't want to let it go!


The three bags are mainly my party bags, the one with the chain is from Mango, and the two clutches are vintage (beige is leather and from a second-hand shop in Finland, brown is snake skin and from a second-hand shop in Amsterdam). The two bags in the second picture are what I use almost daily, the smaller one is second-hand and I use it when I go shopping or for a coffee with friend, because it's so small and goes over the shoulder. The bigger white one I use when I go grocery shopping or to the beach because it can fit all the stuff in.


These too are probably from the eighties (the black one) and the seventies (the light brown one). I bought both of them from a recycling centre and they cost approx. one euro each! They are leather and gorgeous so quite a bargain, wasn't it?

So which bag do you like the most / the least? XX
