A handbag and a gladrag

Just a quick post to say I need a little help dating a handbag... I picked it up for £2, it looks new on the outside but inside looks older.... hmmm


It's not real leather and is sort of slightly padded... oh dear sorry for the vague description


Here's the interior... it's a bit peachier than the photo shoes, I like the contrast between that and the powder
 blue

 
Sorry for the slightly dodgy photos, are you able to help shed light on the possible age of it? 

I also picked up this fantastically garish cowgirl shirt


oooh look beads!

the word BEADS is for me, forever associated with:


Hope you're all ok and enjoying your Friday evening/Saturday morning

Hrm...beats me! I never know how you clever girls date any of the vintage clothes you find, unless it's SUPER OBVIOUS, but then, you're all more knowledgeable than I.

Amor the bag looks like it is an 80's bag.I think Vixcita knows.
anyways love the color of the bag.
Arrested Development is one of my fave shows along with Curb You Enthusiasm.

Fab shirt, that could be so cool on. I'd guess 80s for the bag but it would be just a guess! Norvic is still sold in Barratts.

The bag screams 80s I love the design on the front.
And you simply must model that cowboy shirt for us!

It's so cute I'm jumping on the 80's train. That cowboy shirt is so fun I can't wait to see how you style it. xxxx

I'd definitely put that as an 80s bag. Have you tried lookinmg up the label? X

I'd say that's an eighties bag Clare. Remember having one similar.
Love that shirt but I love anything gingham-y ��
Went thrift ing myself today but got nothing for myself. Mr M got two Spice Girls CDs for our daughter and a 'toilet book' - one of those you leave in the loo for longer visits! Ew

Vix will know for sure, I'm clueless. I'm digging the beads on your top too :) have a great weekend!

I thought my ears were burning! Definitely 1980s, the "Made In Britain" logo and the nod to Art Deco with the diamond shaped design give it away. Can't wait to see you rocking that shirt, it's fabulous! xxx
