Whiting & Davis: Brandy Convertible Bag

March 10, 2017

In 1876, Wade Davis & Company, the precursor to Whiting & Davis, is founded by William H. Wade, Edward P. Davis and Louis Heckman in Massachusetts. In the teens and early ‘20s, Whiting & Davis bags are made of small precious metal rings and are unpainted for the most part, their striking designs coming from a mixture of metal colors, artfully joined rings and metal fringe. By the end of the ‘20s, flat Armor mesh painted in bold Deco designs and Dresden mesh, with its tiny rings silk screened by hand in dreamy Impressionistic shades, take center stage. Whiting & Davis’ beautiful,high quality purses are the coveted accessory of flappers,actresses and “well dressed women everywhere.” Through automation and advertising,the company expands its reach, becoming, and remaining to this day, the world’s leading mesh handbag manufacturer.

  The truth is that you can’t go wrong with any of Whiting & Davis bags but it’s most definitely an investment that you want to make wisely so let me break it down and post some close up photos (above) of your favorite mom modeling this bag. Lol!!!! Brandy Convertible bag is made of pyramid mesh and over sized 8mm tiles for an edgy, structured look. Accented with Italian lambskin leather, wear this rocker chic handbag day to evening as a contemporary cross body bag or double up the chain to wear it as a stylish shoulder bag. It’s definitely the sleekest and most sophisticated bag I saw from their collection, especially when its made in gorgeous pyramid mesh accented with Italian lambskin leather. As you can see, the convertible aspect of the bag comes from the fact that it can go from a cute shoulder bag by day to a perfect over sized clutch by night by easily unclipping the removable shoulder strap. I personally love the shoulder strap because I tend to carry bags on my shoulder and across my body when I’m just running the kids into School or running into the post office or running quick errands in general.

Warning: Whiting & Davis purses is kind of addictive. You may be caught in the mesh! 

Have fun. Be classic, be you, wear vintage.

    Love your blue fur and pants. The bag is a nice finishing touch. What I love about a mesh bag is that I don’t really need to worry about the weather affecting it too much. With leather, I’m always a little more concerned. Great outfit.
