Structured “lady bags”–trend for Fall 2010

The classic structured bag is back with a vengeance this Fall 2010.  It has appeared in all editorials from New York Magazine to all the fashion magazines out there.  I have been blessed with a vintage Gucci in navy blue, crimson leather lining and gold hardware.  After researching a bit about the bag I found out that it is from the 1960’s.  I acquired this bag through my mum.  A friend of hers gave her two Gucci bags and of course my mum was not aware of what she had just gotten so she was going to give them away.  when I saw that navy bag I immediately told her that it was for me and to forget who she had in mind.    A few years later I was walking around Nolita, went pass Resurrection and bingo!, I saw an identical bag in the window.  I was in disbelief and of course had to go inside to see what my Mum was going to give away.  Resurrection was selling the bag for $450, not bad I said…I got mine for free, and right now it is one of the must have bags for fall, very directional.ox

  1. That is a gorgeous bag. Lucky you! Gucci is resurrecting some of their most popular styles from their archives this Fall. Navy is a wonderful color for the upcoming season as it looks terrific with brown and orange shades.

  2. Thanks to the upcoming World Basketball Festival, we now get a “USA” Air Jordan 2010 Team. It seems as if more people like the Air Jordan 2010 Team than the original Air Jordan 2010 because of the windowless side panels. I’m not one of those people who likes the team better; I think the original
    Nike Shoes 2010 Shoes looks much better.Since this jordan Shoes Team is made for the USA team, the colorway should be clear. White can be seen on the side panels, toe, shoe laces, tongue, part of the midsole and the entire outsole. Navy blue covers the toe, heel, inner lining and above the midsole. Red accents appear on the tongue, toe, heel, lace panels and the midsole. The sneaker is constructed of perforated white leather with larger perforations placed on the side panels.
