I finally chose from the things my mother has laid out for me. The things that are "too old" for her, thus vintage for me. Although these things were purchased a good 20 years ago, they're still in mint condition and although some has faded in terms of color, it only adds effect to its vintage look.
I have found new love with Aigner.
all Aigner bags and shoes have an "A" on it, symbolizing my name :) and I can't believe how many Aigner bags my mom was actually planning to throw/ give away! thank god I saved them.
So from the "pile of junk"
as my mother calls it, i picked out two Aigner bags.
of course i couldn't find its exact replica on the internet because the bags are sooo vintage and old.
It somewhat resembles a brown leather quilted shoulder bag
. with a little gold A on the front. the usual Aigner A.
And this exact bag, except the bag I chose is black and instead of ostrich skin, its crocodile skin.
I previously owned this Balenciaga bag in Black, Red and Brown.
but my mother also passed on another bag.Its a vintage Dark Blue Giant Weekender Balenciaga bag.
i know it looks black-ish in the picture but the actual bag is actually a really dark blue. and my mom told me why she simply decided to pass a Balenciaga bag to me.pft. she bought a new one.
but whatever. she's happy, I'm happy. it works out.
next, my mom had like 20 belts on the bed. and you know what I did? i just took em all.
HAHAHA. i didnt even care. i obviously can't show em all to you. so i'll basically pinpoint which era of vintage belts it is.
All these belts range from like, thousand -dollared Ferragamo, Gucci, Aigner, Hermes belts to 7 pound Primark belts. surprisingly the nicer ones are the cheapers ones. Goes to show, you don't need money to be fashionable. but it helps ;)
Oh and my mom hammydowned this GORGEOUS SATIN YVES SAINT LAURENT
clutch. NO IDEA WHY SHE DID. but i'm not complaining.
I found the exact replica online.it looks uber vintage.
it's gorgeous and so very pink. :) everyone knows how I love shocking pink.
I also grabbed some old shoes. that my mom thinks make her look old.
I got some Ralph Lauren penny loafers
, in yellow!
These are from Cole Haan but its the closest I got. imagine these shoes, a much brighter shade of yellow with little ribbons in the front. Its gorgeously cute. I'm wearing them tomorrow. to watch my brother perform.
I also inherited ankle boots. WHO KNEW ANKLE BOOTS WERE IN THEN?They're Burberry Black Lace up Ankle Boots.
Much like this, cept less patent. probably because it's really old. its been somwhat un-shined and discoloured. but still, very chic.
Lastly, monochromatic Chanel flats. They're so effortlessly classic!
No idea why mom wanted to throw those away.
EXACTLY like these, cept they're sling backs.
My mom also wanted to throw out this whole jewellery box of accessories, so once again, I took them all. :) Don't you hate it when you throw something away and realize it could've been for good use? I'm never making that mistake again, so yes, I'm taking it all.
I'm really happy with what I chose.
The parents are coming back in a week or so, expect a haul after their immediate presence. My mommy bought me something, plus, we're going shopping!x.
