Vanity + Vintage #08 *Special Issue*

You probably wondered where last week's Vanity + Vintage (V+V) series was, eh? Well, I had to wait and give you a full dose with an exclusively stylish bunch of people who wanted to participate in the theme. Do not fret, there may be a future themed post just in case you missed the submission this time around.

This week's edition of V+V is a special feature showcasing vintage enthusiasts, some of whom may already be in your blogging circle. I wanted to take a moment to see what their favourite belts and bags were. Here are some beauties to show you how they wear vintage, and why they adore these specific items.
 
 Sacramento, of Mis Palpelicos: Queen of vintage, thrift, and inclusively clever style says,
"I love to wear this because this belt is baroque like me, and an unique piece of art that found me."
 Debbie of Thrifty Girl Vintage: The smart shopping bargain hunter with a vintage budget says,
"I recently thrifted this white wicker purse for $2.  I used it in this post to make this menswear look a little girlier.  I’m looking forward to carrying it with vintage inspired dresses this summer." 
 Anika, of ByAnika: The self-worth activist, designer and blogging darling says, 
"I'm wearing my mums bag that she bought in Brighton 30 years ago. I added a belt for the strap. I love the colours of the bag, but what I love most about wearing it is that it makes me feel close to my lovely mum."
 Christine, of Un-Stitched: The romanticised vintage loving fashionista says, 
" I love this bag because it hails to the past of lady-like simplicity and is dainty and demure."
Jamillah, of Made-To-Travel: The ethical ever inspiring ray of sunshine says,
"This clutch is one of my most beloved thrifted accessories. I got it for $6 at a goodwill! ...It has attended every wedding I've been to, many nights out with the girls, & even some weekend strolls with the bf. It totally goes with everything & is at home with my fanciest dress & with my most casual outfits."
And lastly, I chose this particular bag, because it's a vintage camera case/bag that I acquired during school. Upon purchasing there were old negatives hidden inside (that someone obviously had forgotten to toss)... nothing disturbing, just images of people that I did not know! I've only used this bag a few times, but it has become a piece that I love dearly.


The fact that I almost talked myself out of buying it makes it so special... Though, I do not recall the exact price I paid for it, however to my remembrance it was under $10! I simply love it... that is all!

I hope that you enjoyed this feature and wish you to be inspired this week!

  1. I love this post! So many gorgeous and stylish ladies, hugs to all of you. I love what everyone wrote about their bags, as well, it makes them all the more special. And I love that there were old negatives in your camera bag, Madison; I find a lot of things in used books that I buy - vintage stamps, postcards. It's fascinating!

    Thank you so much for the call to show off our vintage accessories. So much fun to participate and be in such great company! Thanks Madison you are a ray of sunshine to me too!! So sweet. 

    I also love that this piece shows how we all are being better shoppers by shopping vintage! I mean I know we are all normal gals who shop from various places, but incorporating thrifting and vintage shopping in your life does make for a more ethical shopper. LOVE THIS SERIES!

    Such a great series :) I have always felt that bags (along with belts) are the best things to thrift - they always feel so personal and treasure-like.

  26. Madison, I'm so thrilled to be in V + V!  I just found out on Twitter.  And I see I am in good company.  Thanks for including me and thanks, too, for featuring vintage accessories.  I love these older style of handbags and I have several wicker, straw and leather ones that I love to carry.  Buying vintage, for me, is so much more of a thrill than when I find something new.  Have a great week!  Debbie  http://thriftygirlvintage.blogspot.com
