Simplicity – Get The Look

 

 


According to “Merriam Webster’s Learners Dictionary”, the definition of “SIMPLICITY” is:

  • the quality of being easy to understand or use
  • the state or quality of being plain or not fancy or complicated
  • something that is simple or ordinary but enjoyable

In the vernacular of vintage, “SIMPLICITY” means CLASSIC. VintageRenude’s black leather handbag that dates to the 1950’s is a nice example of a timeless piece.
