Among the favourite accessory of women from all ages is a handbag. A sultry looking fringed handbag in suede leather is a stunning arm candy in purple colour.

You don’t have to own the exact vintage piece that you like since there are stuffs that you could buy with a vintage touch. The tanned leather belts and wallets have the same distressed finish as well as the intricate details like embroideries and psychedelic prints on the linings.

The fringe-layered jackets in suede leather are another nostalgic approach to the heydays of the enigmatic millionaire, Jay Gatsby in the fictional novel. The added layers to the rising hemlines of the dresses of the beautiful debutante, Daisy all the more made the Great Gatsby become so obsessed about her. Indeed, Fitzgerald uttered these exact words to describe the era: "something new—something extraordinary and beautiful and simple and intricately patterned." Could it be the fringes as well?
