Handbags 1955

These ladies look so glamorous. I would love to have one of their handbags today! The classics never really go out of style do they?

That was like a breath of fresh air! How far our fashion today has devolved... Some of those purses in black and white looked like my binocular bag! :D

Ohhh what classics. I "love" anything vintage. I even wear vintage dresses and skirts from that era sometimes. SO much fun!

Those bags look much like the "Dooney and Bourke" bags
(which you can find at higher end dept stores).
Be nice if all of us gals could start a new trend and
bring back real fashion!
Remember"gloves"?!
Not only 'fashion' but also practical!
Wearing gloves could keep you safe from contact with germs in public places. I say lets bring it back! :)

This reminded me of my mom and aunts in the 50's, and they really dressed in style, handbags, hats, purses, and gloves(I still have some). Nice post!

Those are such great bags, and I love how they dressed up for the flight. Now...anything goes! What a shame.
