Earlier this week, Racked was intrigued by the one-of-a-kind Moonbags we saw in the store window of Chelsea Couture Girl on Spring Street in Soho. The clutch handbags are each handpainted and designed with eighties fashion iconography. Really, who doesn't love gazing at an old-school handpainted profile of Brooke Shields while rummaging for their keys or cell phone? A couple readers agreed, so imagine our delight when we spotted more Moonbags at the Manhattan Vintage Clothing Show yesterday afternoon! If you're interested, head to booth number 45 (Marilyn Hitchcock Vintage Fashions) 'cuz she's selling them for $175 a piece.
