trendy vs. timeless
I have a family wedding this fall and need some accessory guidance. This is the dress (though I'll be wrapping it a bit differently). I'm pairing it with some sleek pewter pumps I already own and some raw smoky quartz baubles.
The issue is, I'll be toting a rather large vintage camera, phone, yadda yadda yadda -- a clutch isn't going to cut it. Can I rock this bag or am I totally mixing genres?
Sort of unrelated, but I don't have lots of dollars to work with. For me, this is kind of an investment piece. Wondering where you and your readers would rank it on the trendy/timeless spectrum.
Thanks for your wisdom!

On a scale of trendy (1) to timeless (10), that bag rates a 3. Maybe a 4.
I recently spotted the new Coach "Legacy" Leather Duffle on because im addicted....
which sent me into a 30-minute tailspin searching vintage Coach bucket bags on ebay and etsy.
There are QUITE A FEW. And they are excellent.
This one from Bel Modo is $115, and looks to be in pristine condition.
But shop around, they come in a bunch of different sizes. (And if the seller says "BEST OFFER TAKES IT HOME!!!!" don't be afraid to offer half the list price.)
