I’ve finally grown a pair and decided to cut up this precious Every Time I Die shirt I had lying around. Yay!
And sorry you have to turn your head for photo numbero 3, but it’s worth it because you get a close up of my new old bag! Let me elaborate on why vintage bags are awesome:
- The leather! I really don’t like the pleather shit H&M and alikes do, and real leather bags are often way beyond my budget, so second hand is the way to go!
- The styles! When I go into New Look or H&M, I’ll always find something to moan about: The colour of the hardware, no zipper (that’s like an invitation to pickpockets!), an ugly strap etc etc etc.
- The inside! Okay so I admit, I miss a cellphone pouch BUT! COMPARTMENTS ARE LIKE SOLID GOLD. Everyone probably knows what it feels like to stand in front of your door, trying to find your key when it’s raining, when you’re carrying ice cream in your grocery bags, when you really have to pee. Without compartments, my bags turn into black holes that eat all my stuff. True story.
So, consider me converted! I keep checking back for the bag of my dreams, a black leather hobo-esque shoulder bag, with optional fringes.
End of rant!
