I have a gold mesh Whiting and Davis evening bag similar to the one in this photo. Now…I’m a little fashion challenged these days…which of the following is this bag?
A. vintage cool?
B. old school retro?
C. butt ugly, give it to the Goodwill?
c. but that’s because i absolutely hate gold. i think its tacky looking and it reminds me of old ladies trying to get all gussied up. no offense!
I think it is super cute and could be vintage or retro depending on the outfit …. don’t give it to the good will ….
Tee-hee…you crack me up! For Christmas I’m going to get you a yellow gold bird ring and some velvet pants! LOL
Seriously…thanks for the opinion. When I was your age (dear God I feel old saying that) yellow gold was all the rage. *sigh*
Well you’re asking the Queen of Gold here, LOL. I LOVE IT! And I think this purse is great. Anything can look vintage cool if you 1) pair it with non-granny pieces (which I have no doubt you will) and 2) wear it with confidence.
So I say wear it with pride and I’m sure you will have every girl in the bar wondering where you found that fantastic vintage find.
we young whipper snappers are much more of the silver variety. i don’t think i’ve ever liked gold. and if a boy ever bought me anything gold, it would be the last thing he bought me, i can promise you that.
Probably being the oldest of all y’all, I think it is Vintage Cool. I love it and depending on where you want to wear the purse would go for it. I bet you get a lot of compliments and comments about it.
Personally, not a lover of gold colored items. BUT if you like gold, and have the clothes to go with this look, my vote is that it’s vintage chic.
I could not carry it off in any shape or form, since I’m not at all fashionable!
ok, seriously? it reminds me of something at Claire’s (or whatever that accessory-tshatshke place is called). oy veh. It’s exactly like my Bubbe’s goin-to-Atlantic-City-purse.
It’s not THAT bad!
