One drawback to many vintage purses is that they simply not practical for everyday where, nor are modern purses appropriate for vintage outfits, but what if you could buy a purse that works with both? The following purses are classics that were designed many years ago, but are still very fresh today and will likely be in the years to come. Here are some of my top picks:
1.The Alma, by Louis Vuitton.
The Alma is one of my favorite bags of all time. It looks very modern, but it actually dates back to the 1930s. This bag is on the pricey side, but you can score one on Ebay or Etsy for a lot less. I’m not big on logo, so I choose to buy this bag in the more subtle Epi leather. If you want a bag that can do everything, this is a great option for you.
2. Gucci bamboo bag.
So this style of purse has been on my wishlist for a long time, I have lusting after an original one from the 1950s. Gucci started using bamboo handles because of scarcity during the war. Gucci makes this bag in some variation until this day, but you to save money you would be better getting a vintage one from the 1950s/60s. There was also other made bags made in the style of the Gucci bag around the same era that you could pick if you don’t need the Gucci logo.
3. The Hermes “Kelly” bag.
Pictured here with its most famous owner. The Hermes “Kelly” bag is just as chic today as it was back Grace Kelly carried it. A new Kelly is extremely expensive, as is a vintage one, but many purses in the 1950s were made to emulate the kelly style without the Hermes logo that can be had a much lower price.
