Wrist Candy: Vintage Needlepoint Bags
After years and years of Dominatrix Chic in the handbag department, I am so glad to see that designers are ditching the chains and padlocks and moving back to the center with traditional frame bags . . .
But why stop there? What's catching my eye these days are vintage needlepoint bags by the likes of Koro Creations, Souré, and the pictured example from Christine Custom bags of Detroit . . . outlandishly feminine and so well suited to spring's forecasted pastels and lace. Or even right now, when the promise of violets helps dispel winter's gray . . .
