♥ fashion friday: vintage dooney & bourke.

one of my favorite gifts i have ever received from my future mother in law
is actually an old dooney & bourke bag that once belonged to her mother.
(it even has her name written on the inside flap!) last year, i found it
while going through a pile of items that she was pricing for a yard sale and
asked if i could keep it.

proving the old adage, "one person's trash is another person's treasure,"
this cross-body, classic-style dooney is a perfect addition to my vintage-filled
closet and definitely a family heirloom that i will always treasure.

i have noticed that a number of fashion bloggers out there have also
managed to score some of their own old-school dooney & bourke bags
and i must say they all wear them very well!

and just in case you can't get your hands on a real vintage piece, check out these classic-style dooney bags which are available on the website right now!

  7. This is an amazing photo of you, Sami! Funny - I never thought I liked Dooney & Bourke, but I guess that's because I always see their fabric bags with the logos all over. Those simple leather bags are perfect!

  8. am drooling at the bags above! i'm going through a phase of tan bags, belts and shoes. =)

  9. oh yes beautiful bag!!! a treasure indeed, and those images you showed are amazing too. Great, now I want a vintage bag :(
