In the end, I decided that I needed to buy it as it was just too cute to pass up! It was deadstock with the labels still attached, my size and the seller gave me a really good price that I simply could not turn this down.
One of the reasons (but certainly not the main reason) that I wear vintage is because I like that it is a more uncommon way of dressing. But as there are now a lot more people wearing and sourcing vintage (which is definitely a great thing!) you often find that the vintage dress you love to wear because of its unusual print is popping up on Etsy again and again.
When my Mum saw my Stylecraft Miami wicker and lucite bag she loved it so much that she said she wanted one herself! I reasoned that because it was vintage, I was unlikely to be able to find her one. But I was determined to have a look and on my first Etsy search, I found another one so I bought it for her! It is actually a little bigger than mine but it is still Stylecraft Miami and the same style of bag, as you can see. In fact, in the last couple of weeks, I have seen a third bag on eBay in this style! Vintage, yes. Unique, certainly not!
