I bought this purse for my mom in the 80's for her birthday. She wore it with the strap and her charcoal heather tweed skirt, grey pantyhose, burgundy silk blouse and plum lipstick. My mom always coordinated. But, this purse hasn't made it into her rotation for quite some time now, so I snagged it the last time I was in SB, and added this cute little handmade flower from my friend Kelly's amazing fabric line. I had to cut the strap off,though-sorry, mom!
