Think a structured handbag is too stuffy for summer? Think again. Check out fashion blogger Mallory’s vintage Louis Vuitton bag.
One of two bloggers on the fashion blog Ready Two Wear, Mallory is one lucky girl who received this vintage piece from her boyfriend’s mom. Mallory pairs the purse with both casual and dressy pieces, making the bag an easy transition from day to night.
Don’t be afraid of its structured design — wear it casually as a crossbody (don’t worry that the strap is short — that’s the point!), or tuck away the strap and wear it as a boxy clutch. It’s the perfect work bag, but also adds some chic to a casual look, too.
Aren’t lucky enough to have a generous mother of a boyfriend? Though this Louis Vuitton is no longer sold in stores, opt for a similar look with these structured handbags from Forever21.
