On the streets of Sydney…Goulbourn St

by Lee Oliveira on February 2, 2011

I really enjoy going out on the streets of Sydney. Finding great guys with style and an awesome personality like this is a bonus. This week I was very lucky to photograph this super cool guy. Please say hello to Mick!

shirt-Nude Jeans; denim-Cheap Monday; bag-Vintage; sunglasses-Ray Ban; fragrance-Dior Homme Cologne

I couldn’t take my eyes of his vintage bag. Mick just got back from Copenhagen and brought this with him. The funny and interesting part is the fact his good friend used to store baby clothes in this bag. Now the baby has grown up the bag has became a fabulous vintage accessorie piece.

Now, I’m ringing all my friends who have had babies in the past. Checking just by chance if they stored their baby clothes in something like this. Don’t laugh! Now I want a bag just like this.

Thanks Mick.

This is amazing! I adore that bag and the story behind it! I have a vintage pearl bag passed down from my grandmother that I use all the time. There is something so special about using a piece that has history behind it. :)
