Cheerful Spring Handbag w/ Vintage Accent
I fell in love with the texture and color of a chartreuse green handbag this past spring...I assume it was a promo/freebie with the purchase of Matrix hair products because of the inner label.
Being self-conscious of toting a "freebie promo bag"...I had to make it my own.
I am a jewelry packrat, but don't wear everything I collect. I never could get myself to wear a fuschia vintage flower brooch even though the coloring was so beautiful and the matching rhinestones were amazing, yet I wouldn't part with it.
It was simple. I decided to wear both! I pinned the brooch onto my bag and have gotten many compliments since!
I picked up the bag at a neighborhood yardsale, and the brooch is from the jewelry case of a local thrift shoppe. I paid $1.07 for both items.
Pins like this can be found in most antique shops.
