It's a Back to Basics Tuesday at Decades today. We are endorsing basic black... but basic black in Porosus crocodile, handcrafted by the artisans of Hermes into an iconic 32 cm Kelly from 1971. This is the bag your mom carried, your grandma carried, and Grace Kelly carried, of course. It hides baby bumps; holds paperbacks; might even have room for a corned beef sandwich, too. There are so many imitations of this classic and perennial handbag of choice. There are also many distracting modern bags that are done in exotic skins that look disposable after a season. Why not act your age and buy the ultimate grown up bag? Enough with the messenger bags, the shopper styles, the collapsible shoulder bags...choose classic, choose investment, choose this vintage Kelly.
