Here’s another amazing vintage find from St Andrews. I’m really getting into the swing of thrifting now and recently found the most amazing hidden section of a charity shop I’d never discovered before, thanks to my friend Ruth. I’ll keep it for a post I’m doing for Visit St Andrews, so you’ll just have to wait for then to find out where this treasure-trove is.
I absolutely adore this vintage leather doctor bag. Everything about it is so perfect and so my style – from the clasp fastening, to the deep burgundy hue. It’s real leather and is lined with suede, split into three compartments. I like the sturdy structure, and though it’s vintage and has a couple of scratches, it has that lovely worn-in leather feel to it and I can tell it’s been well loved, as it will be in its new home. Big enough to hold a few notebooks for lectures and my essentials, the ladylike style adds a chic touch to any ensemble.
I was absolutely astounded by the price- £10.50! For the real deal design, real leather, authentic vintage. I knew I couldn’t leave it behind and at this price it was a no brainer. It’s already received so many compliments and I can’t believe a replica would go for at least £30 in Topshop and for £75 plus for a real leather bag in this style and size. It has certainly brightened my current essay-filled existence.
