You know my LOVE of vintage and thrift store finds!  Well, I am almost head-to-toe vintage in this outfit.  That cutest little wooden box bag… it’s just an ORIGINAL BOX BAG from 1966.  You know, no biggie!

It seems to be the same story over and over…  Perusing thrift store, a special {insert super awesome item here} catches my eye.  Decision is made that I cannot POSSIBLY leave the store without it because I would never find that {insert super awesome item here} again especially because it’s… HELLO… vintage/one of a kind/not made like that anymore.  Hand my card/cash/life savings to cashier and walk to my car as if I just won the lotto!

That’s exactly what happened when I saw this dress and that box bag.  Silk creamsicle dress for $10 – DONE!  The ORIGINAL Box Bag by Enid Collins (bonus that it’s made in Texas) for $25 – DOUBLE DONE.  Seriously, I am OBSESSED with the mirror inside and the branding on it!  And I purchased the necklace from my MIL’s friend who was cleaning out her vintage costume jewelry – STICK A FORK IN ME!

I hope y’all enjoy seeing my thrift finds as much as I LOVE finding them!  :)

    1. Tabitha! One of the second hand shops that I frequent only carries “nicer” items, and the other is hit or miss. You just never know!

    1. Thanks Rachel! I’m completely infatuated with the bag, and love that the handles are white – perfect for summer! Hope you are doing well!

  1. Sam! You are such an inspiration! Getting that motivation for fashion, thanks friend!

    1. Thanks Mica – the thrift stores here seem to carry things at reasonable prices. When I went with Marlene in London, they had beautiful things also but the prices were definitely higher!

  2. I just returned home a few hours ago from a trip to our local St. Vincent’s store, for a little goody shopping. I found this exact bag there! I knew I had a gem when I found it, but I hadn’t ever seen a bag such as this/them. Well, I bought it, only I got it for $1.00!! OMG…I am so happy! Found your site through google search, looking at these purses. Thank you!

    1. WOW!!! $1!!! That’s amazing! Glad you were able to find it through my pics! Isn’t it a wonderful bag?!! Wear it in good health! xx
