Two Purses; One Love

I'm not normally one to obsess over purses. Give me a printed pant or a blouse with an interesting cut and I'm all over 'em. The newest "it" bag? Not so much. That is, of course, until these two beauties meandered into my life.

First up to bat, the caramel leather pony hair purse....



This beauty is in perfect condition and looks as if it was never used. If what you like is a classic over-the-shoulder bag, look no further. It's a simple shape made of genuine, well-cared for materials with just a slight quirk (aka perfection).

Don't know how to style this baby? Pony hair has been super popular as of late, so here are a few outfit inspirations to get your brain churnin'...


pair with bright colors for an eye-popping look (via La Modella Mafia)


go a little more punk in all black and let the purse take center stage (via Magwood)


make it casual with a jean jacket and some ankle booties


go sweet like Taylor Swift and pair it with a printed dress


keep it simple and chic (via Le Chriselle Factor)

Up next is a fantastic tooled leather purse. Now, we've had tooled leather in before but this one speaks to me on a whole different level. Plus, you can detach the strap and carry it as a clutch!




Here are a few ways modern ladies have been rocking this vintage staple...



wear it in the summer with a sundress and fabulous belt (via Get Dressed)


funk it up with crazy boots, knee-high socks and no pants! (via Global Fashion Report)


marry it with quirky details and awesome blonde hair (via Currently Obsessed)

Now, if I haven't fully convinced you of these bags' merits, you'll just have to stop in and visit them for yourselves. Trust me, it's worth it.
