Here's another lookbook-look of me, with my new home-made suspender bag.

I know it sounds a little bit vague. (It sounds really vague) But take for example these suspenders. They're almost 80 years old. My grandma found them in her attic and gave them to me, so I decided to do something creative with it. I sewed six buttons on this plain old linnen bag and I attached the suspenders.
