What do you get when you combine an ugly 1940s handbag with a moth-eaten vintage scarf?
Would you believe an accessory I’m going to love using this fall?
It all started with a handbag I bought at the flea market probably fifteen years ago. Maybe twenty! I liked the caramel colored plastic kiss-lock frame. The rest of it is an eyesore. Glitzy applique on rough textured fabric? Ugh. Cheap goldtone chain attached by eye hooks? Double ugh.
