A couple of months ago I bought a silk Edwardian gate-top bag. The colour is a little hard to describe....quite a rusty, coppery tan colour, but with dusty pink undertones. I was finding it difficult to style, mainly because of its colour, and the fact that I don't have many pieces that fall into such a long-winded colour category. The bag presents a further sartorial dilemma for me in that it mixes gold and silver- having gold hardwear, and silver in the silk brocade. It kinda makes my skin crawl seeing gold and silver mixed, but I'm just going to have to get over it and stop being so damn fussy.
Anyway, I was searching through some of my mums 'vintage' belts from when she was a young lady, and came across a perfectly fleshy toned belt which complements the bag. Finally, I was able to take the bag for its first outing. I must apologise for baring my pasty white legs, but tights really didn't work with the outfit. There's a reason I always wear tights, and that is so I don't blind people with the reflection.
