I think the best piece of vintage is one that isn't found in a second hand shop, or a garage sale, but in your own mother's closet. Meet my mom's best kept secret, Gucci.
The boxy shape of the bag and long leather strap is so late 80s! LOVELOVE. The leather is deliciously worn-in (but still looks great!) and could probably use a patch up in a few spots and a repair here or there... but I won't. I think it looks good just as it is. It was given to my mother by her late mother-in-law (my late grandmother). Timeless. Priceless.
