Fave Five - Vintage Evening Bags

Whether it’s the finishing touch to a full vintage outfit or simply a subtle touch of retro to a more modern look, a vintage evening bag is always a great buy. The epitome of mid-century glamour, many of these dainty and pretty purses were empire made in the far east and feature beautifully intricate beading work done by hand. Choose a versatile back or go for something more glitzy in gold or silver - we always have lots of options here at My Vintage.
