Black Evening Bag with Flower Basket Motif. 1960s. Maker: Caron of Houston. Black stretch-knit fabric bag with hundreds of multi-colored beads glued on in a flower-and-basket pattern. There are also some faux jewels, and four gold-toned flowers on the basket. I have a bunch of Caron of Houston bags, many of which feature tiny, glued-on beads. You can imagine how this makes for some serious indecisiveness on semi-formal occasions. “Should I take the black one with the beads? Or the black one with the beads? Or maybe the black one with the beads?”
Ah, life's difficulties.
