My Newest Online Obsession

Suzie Floozie! It sounds a bit scandalous, doesn't it? I promise, it's not. Let me explain. My love for Gladstone bags is no secret. I've been on the hunt for a perfect one for months now. Or perhaps I should say perfect ones since I'd really like a brown one and a black one, a large one to use as a weekend bag and a small one to use as an everyday bag, and... well, you get the idea. So it's no surprise then that I've become a bit obsessed with browsing through the bags at Suzie Floozie. According to the website, she spent years collecting vintage leather bags and now has moved on to sharing them with the world. Lucky us. Of course I'm partial to the Gladstones but I was also a bit smitten with the school satchels. The site is UK based and therefore priced in pounds, but the prices seem pretty reasonable considering how much I've seen these things going for on Ebay. If only I could choose...

Thanks for sharing.....all the bags posted on her site are lovely. Its a shame that she doesn't have your eye for design though. I feel her website was lacking design flare. I can only imagine how you would highlight her wonderful collection.

Those bags are so perfectly your style. I think they are so beautiful, but I know I could never use a bag that wasn't attached to my body. I would leave it somewhere for sure!

Wow! What an incredible resource; thanks for sharing! I'm completely with you on the Gladstone bags, and I also really liked the hunting bag section on the site as well. Rustic chic, I suppose! :) And Suzie Floozie is indeed a scandalous, but sensational name! Lovely!
