A good choice of vintage handbag will see you through many years, if not decades, of outfits. If you choose super wisely you can even find a great vintage bag that can take you from daytime to evening. However, if you are obsessed with vintage bags then you may just prefer to collect a bag for every possible outfit and colour combination (yes, I am speaking from personal experience!)
