Thrift Inspiration, doing it the Gucci way!

I was really pleased to snap up this vintage Jaeger bargain-my last purchase of 2008.


A total classic, it is a navy patterned canvas hobo style bag with leather trimmings and was £3.75 in Cancer Research. It will be ideal to use in any season and is big enough to hold anything, either by hand or over the shoulder.

For anyone who thinks it looks familiar, it is virtually the same as the Gucci Jackie O (Bouvier) bag. A great timeless bag that has never gone out of style-my kind of bag!

It looks lovely. The one in the picture was A. Leon TAlley (from Vogue USA)

AsianCajuns said...

That's a great find. Because it's vintage and broken in, it looks more expensive that something you could get today. I can't wait to see what you wear it with!

Have a happy weekend!
