Spring is nearly here! So I thought it would be a good time to post a selection of pretty dresses from Retro and Vintage online shop Mod Cloth. There are loads more on their website which is regularly updated with new stock and they have really cute blog too!
These bags are made from hand woven plaid and floral cotton. The lining is durable thick cotton and the bottom of the bag and the handles are made from a tan coloured soft suedette. The bag measures approximately 40x 35cm and each handle is just under 50cm long (to fit comfortably over your shoulder)
Perfect for shopping, work or school. I use my bag all the time and it is hard-wearing as well as feeling soft and looking pretty!
