If you follow me on instagram (@passingwhimsies), you'll already know of the exciting thrift find I had while at home this weekend. I've been thrifting for roughly five years, since my first year of high school. Ever since I started, I've dreamed of finding a vintage Dooney and Bourke purse. Perhaps it's their over saturation on the internet that led me for the need for one, or to feel like I had finally hit 'thrifting nirvana' with one of the hardest finds. It may have took me five years...but I finally have a vintage D&B in my possession!
I bought mine for $8, and everything about it is perfect except for the missing shoulder strap. I did some research because I was curious about the background and release date of this style, and the information I came across was really interesting. I found this site which tells all about vintage D&Bs and I found that mine is retailing for around $188 right now...crazy! This style was produced in the 1980's/1990's, but I was unable to find the exact year of make. No matter, I'll love my little bag to pieces whatever year it was made. I was just a curious cat.
Prepare to see this purse a lot in upcoming outfit photos! x
With much love, Lauren.
P.S. It only took me 20 years to realize that wearing pants sometimes is okay.
