magic briefcase.


blazer. mossimo. T. steve and barrys. jeans. Levis. purse. vintage. shoes. chloe.


briefcase. I was overjoyed when I came across this vintage piece. I find it has the allure of a classy, intelligent business woman who rocks into an all male business firm wearing a killer D & G suit coupled with sky-high Prada pumps. Ready to devour her prey...

I was only planning on buying a belt and blazer that particular day, but as I proceeded to make my payment this piece of sophistication miraculously appeared in front of me. The weird thing was, no one was in the store other than a few staff members and this certainly was not there when I walked in, nor was it there as I perused the racks ( it was a tiny store and I could see the couch the entire time). It appeared out of nowhere and was snatched up by moi, ever so rapidly. The case of the magic purse. Maybe it will bring me some good luck this next week or so ;)...

fashion chalet: thanks love!!!
oh chloe- my first pair... my babies. BUT hopefully not the last !

couturecarrie: it is a little skinny-minnie!

maveri: ha ha! your so cute. Yeah I know, hey? I bought it last year at the NYC S & B's BUT in the mens section. They have WAY better options than womens. way better. Check it out.

mimi: thanks girl!

the clothes horse: super slim case! that was the allure for me.

knight cat: Your TOO sweet. OH MY- ask away. I don't mind at all! Please, anything at all. I was born in Canada and moved here 3.5 years ago... It is AMAZING but it took a huge adjustment. It is still considered 3rd world, but Cape Town is extremely cosmopolitan. There is HEAPS to do... it has so much to offer ( hiking, world class beaches, surfing, cycling, wine tours, oh my the list goes on & on) It really is lovely.

girl on the wing: AW girl. thanks. Everything will fall in to place... you wouldn't be going there if it was not meant to be. I would LOVE to go to London!

krissy: thank you.

tinkerbell and fairies: thanks girl! it makes me feel very business-y.


emma: thanks love! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend too.

Unwise Pedestrian said...

Gorgeous! The whole outfit is perfect - the blazer, the tee, the jeans (which I loooove), the shoes! And especially the magic briefcase. I love random, perfect finds like that.

xAx said...

Love your jeans, i really enjoy a turned up jean at the mo.

Jenny H. said...

ahhh love the shoes.

Gorgeous look and im obsessed with your bag, I am such a bag girl so its always exciting to see what other people are carrying around ;)

natalia grozina said...

MAGIC IS REAL!

Allure said...

Great purchase. I "stole" something similar from my mum's closet. She had it for 30 years and never wore it!

Lisa said...

sunniva: thanks love! YES, keep your eyes out.

alice point: I feel like I am off to a business meeting instead of coffee with a girlfriend! thanks girl.

nothing elegant: he he. I love your usage of man bag.

richel: yahoo. They are lovely. BUT I found they are sized extremely tiny...

ashleigh: thanks girl. It is so not practical as a briefcase though... business people would become very frusrated BUT stylish!

emily: thank you love!

unwise pedestrian: thank you! Your comment is sooo sweet.

xax: thanks! I can live in these jeans.

jenny h: soo sweet. thanks.

on track: bags oh my. Can you ever have enough? nope...

natalia gozina: thanks girl.

allure: I am sure its from the same era as your mom's. I love finding things like this. So precious. I always invision the woman or gentleman carrying these 20-30 years ago...

The case is precious. Love that it can be worn as a bag, too, so cute.

The backdrop of those pictures is awesome. It looks so lonesome, yet welcoming.

Love the case! Have been searching for something similar for years! But bigger and handle-less. Now maybe I'm changing my mind. Love yours!
