Oh, which bag?

I'd like to get a vintage leather carry-on bag. Don't tell me husband - he thinks I have too many bags already >_< Oops! But I don't have any leather bags and I think it would be super handy and awesome :-) Annnd one of the Style School projects is to take something vintage and remake it as your own, sooo....

Help me choose?
I've narrowed it down to a few...
I've always wanted a bowling bag!!
(from VeroVintage on Etsy)

Love this color!
(from Coldfish on Etsy)

(found on ebay here

Or maybe one of these...
(from SFMissonFinds and Coldfish on Etsy)

These won't work for this project, but I love them and wanted to share ;)
(found here and here on Etsy)

So many beauties to choose from....Which do you like best?


  1. ohhh I like the red one in the middle and the blue/yellow striped one. :) Can't wait to see which one you decide on!
    I need to find one too!!!

  2. Oooh the red bowling bag is very cute.

    But the blue one from Coldfish has a longer strap, might be easier to carry around.

  3. I love the third one. It's sleek and classic looking.

    I saw that you entered the giveaway on Paper N Stitch! We’re also giving away some prints by Shannon Rankin on the Westervin blog, and I thought you might like to enter! Just leave a comment on this post:

    I hope it goes to a good home :)



  4. Vintage carry on bags are the best - mine has been on sooooo many planes with me! I love things that are functional and stylish. Mine is the style of the red one (5th down on the left), which is great for traveling but a little big for everyday use (in my opinion, at least). I'm thinking about getting one shaped like 3rd down, which seems a little more manageable for running around town. I probably wouldn't go for the bowling bag (although I love them too), because this type of bag tends to be a bit heavy even when empty, and I would definitely want to carry it on my shoulder.

    Let us know which you choose!

  5. I love the first one! It's adorable. You'll have to post which one you choose and if you remake it as your own =)
