Old Bag, New Tricks (See Jane Revive)

Don't you love it when you buy something that withstands the sands of time?  I originally bought this Kooba bag during the summer vacation (remember those?) before my senior year of college.  It's black, roomy, and made of supple leather--thus, it's timeless, in my eyes.  I often forget about it as it hangs behind more popular bags in my rotation but every once in awhile, I'll pull it out it and use it for a few straight weeks.  Even if I'm fixated on certain trends of the moment, I know I can always rely on my black bag of yesteryear to keep my in check--ol' faithful.   

Kenna-T jacket (worn here), J Crew skirt (worn here), Free People top, Gap tights, Urban Outfitters heels (t-strap platforms made into ankle strap, à la these), Kooba bag

Do you keep old bags for future use?

That bag is timeless! I love when I buy a bag that I can go back to years later and still love. I definitely keep all my bags that aren't completely trashed after wearing them over and over. I still can't get over how awesome that leather jacket is. You totally scored on that one. Hope you had a great weekend.

The title of this post caught my eye! I've learned to never get rid of anything when it comes to fashion because it will come back around or I will fall in love with it all over again. This bag is classic!
