Vintage All Over Again

It always cracks me up when I see a very vintage design crop in in a modern story or store.  Not even an “inspired by” design but one totally reproduced from a vintage piece they must have gotten a hold of.

For example, I was browsing a Who What Wear article on “9 Style Secrets That Bloggers Know (and You Don’t)” and saw this purse featured from Gaia.

Oh wait!

 I know that purse… because I have it!

And mine was not $98. It was like $20 and is an actual vintage piece bought from an vintage accessories dealer at a show in 2011.

Maybe I’m a blogger in the know.

At least I know to buy the original vintage piece for a much better price and quality than a reproduction!
