Trendspotting: Wooden Purses
Apr 8, 2010
I love vintage handbags that are made out of unusual materials like Bakelite, Lucite, metal and wood. They’re a great statement piece that allows you to accessorize an outfit without having to think to far outside of the box. So when I saw this wooden accordion clutch by fashionista favorite Stella McCartney was selling for more than two-grand, I knew that I could recreate this trendy look for less.
This basket could be used as a purse or carried to the Farmer’s Market. And since it can fold up and fit into your briefcase or messenger bag, it might be the perfect solution to DC’s bag tax.
Even though this clutch isn’t slotted or accordion style like, it still has a great vintage look. I love the dark wood with that gorgeous patina and strong grain pattern. Such a steal for less than $20.
This fabulous purse is the quintessential statement piece. It’s half-moon shape gives this vintage bag a modern twist, and if you need a pop of color, you can tie a scarf around the handle. This bag would be the perfect thing to carry to church on brunch when wearing a flirty summer dress.
