A Beaded Vintage Bag

One thing I really love is vintage beaded bags.  I love how amazingly detailed they can be, and they can add elegance to any outfit.  I've been lucky to find a few great ones over the past few years, and today I decided to carry one that I purchased at the Rose Bowl Flea Market.  For those of you who live in Los Angeles, you must check out the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena.  The market happens the second Sunday of every month and features over 2,500 vendors!  My husband and I love going there to rummage through boxes of clothing, antiques, and other oddities.  I was able to pick up this lovely vintage beaded bag for under $50 one Sunday.  I tried to set my look today around this bag and would love to know what you think!







Bag: Vintage 
Blazer: H&M
Jeans: 7 for all Mankind
Earrings- Vintage; Necklace- Marni for H&M; Chevron Bracelets- BCBG
Shoes: Dries Van Noten

    1. Thank you so much! I was on a mission with the Marni for H&M collection, because I wanted several items! I made my husband get up at 4a and go get in line with me! haha!! I printed large pictures of the necklaces I wanted, and while he grabbed those, I grabbed the clothes I wanted. :)
