Virgo Zodiac Designer

vintage astrology bag

This vintage Enid Collins Aries bag is for sale on Etsy & I actually do not know if Arieans would like it.

The archetypal Aries is a bit scared of vintage anything & their ideal bag is more like a money belt or an actual servant who walks behind lugging the stuff.

I’m sure if people could have all their house keys and credit cards just microchipped so they wave an imperious arm when they want to buy something or open the door, they’d be fine with it.

But Enid Collins, i have just learned, was a cult bag designer of the 60s & 70s in America. She was a Virgo and the wife of a Texas rancher when she decided to start making handbags and they went totally ape. The Zodiac ones were particularly coveted and considered collectible by some peeps today.

This is the Leo one:

It baffles me how you all can just sit there and bash Enid. I’m an avid astrologer and you should all know you can’t generalize habits and tastes just by a couple of planetary positions. The whole chart does a different dance for everybody…two peeps can have the same planetary positions yet have different trends. It’s called personal preference. That’s where the freewill in freewill astrology comes from. Generalizing like you’re all doing is what keeps peeps narrow about the zodiac. And the whole point of her artwork is Artistic expression – you should all know that. How can you… Read more »

Okay.. who the hell uses a wooden box as a handbag??

I’m an Aries and I love vintage, but these “handbags” are completely trashy and hideous.

Sagittarius with Leo asc. here… I actually like the Aries one most of all. The Sag one makes me cringe. What’s up with the enormous flower? The Lion in the Leo one is kind of cute, haha.

I LOVE Enid Collins pieces. I think they are great. I would use more as display boxes than a purse however.
BTW I am an Aries. I love vintage so it’s not quite on the mark.

Yaaay! Someone who knows what the real deal is.

simply ugly. as a leo – and i can imagine, as ANY sign – i would, under no circumstances, carry one of those around.

Ha ha!! This is so true…an ideal bag for an archetypal Aries is a servant lugging the stuff behind them!! haha!!….For many years I’ve been wishing for a secretary under a Christmas tree!! ( As an Aries I hate to be lugging stuff, dealing with paperwork……and why anyway, there is so many people that can do it MUCH BETTER then me!!! :))

Well, not something I personally would carry…but I have to constantly remind myself that someone – a human person – actually created these things, and invested a part of themselves in them…and so I would definitely not want to trash the artist’s efforts in any way or hurt their feelings.
Yes, I know that’s a bit pollyanna prissypants, but I can’t help it!

I like you’re mode of thinking….respect the artist and thier expression – even if you don’t care for what they create.

i really like these. i’ve been into her stuff for a while, i love how incongruous it all is, but weirdly balanced. shes cool.in my book. she was making these pre 60s, her cottage industry was taken over in the 70s so its not psychadelic junk i think its more of a distinct creative achievement. plus the texas thing, its a hoot.

The leo one is very cute–never as a purse but I could totally see it in a jungle-themed nursery to hold various supplies, kept on a shelf.

…. but that would be cruel as they would probably have been strapped into it by a sadistic Virgo bent on punishing them for buying the damn thing.

And no, an Aries can’t be used as firewood, they don’t actually burn as well as you might think.

Art nouveau is fab, really love it … but not wayward ’70s memorabilia like this.

hideous – ALL the wrongs.
Imagine lugging it around all day, ‘twould give one a case of Saturn neck.

I’m an Aries. I wouldn’t carry the bag but I would buy it, hang onto it for several years, and then sell it for a profit. Or I’d carry it once in a while just to see who I get compliments from.

Yes, they are ugly. The crystals and paintings look so tacky and cheap. It would be okay as like, a cute picnic basket but not a purse.
I like small-ish cloth purses, and especially shoulder ones so my hands are free.

My 6 year old boy would love the aries one, he loves small storage boxes, and of course a particular collection must have a stand out box. The jewels would work perfectly for the 3d Yugio cards and toys. He cracks me up, last night his usually bad attention span became entranced on a womens underpants ad, teenage girls poncing about with musical instruments, as he stared intently at the screen a smile appeared, he turned , looked me straight in the eye and says ” I love that ad, dad”.

Is your 6-year-old an Aries? My Aries flatmate’s Aries son (4) is just the same – with a childlike delight about it all.

His father isn’t much different 😆 😆

These make me unbearably sad. Is that the Pluto thing?
These make me think of housewives of the 60s trying to be brave and “creative” or “zany” but it has just all come down to ghastly fake glass gemstone applique and probably gin. Valium. What’s that book about? The femininst one.
And they wear corsets and have hair spray. More gin.
What the fuq would you put in these bags anyway?

Mari

I wouldn’t touch ’em. My Aries Ascendant and Mercury in Gemini requires a cross-body bag. I must have my hands and arms free at all times.

plywood … big fake 70s gemstones … naive (as in daggy) illustrations and typography. Are you sure this isn’t Delia’s great aunt or something Mystic? 😉

the painting part is cute, the massive fake gemstones are SCARY!!! I would keep it at home as a make up case. I don’t do big, fat, clunky bags that would leave bruises on one’s legs…!!

Maybe she was transporting cocaine from across the border and needed something sufficiently off-putting so as to deter border patrol? I mean, if I was manning the borders I wouldn’t touch any of these.. unless it held a box of crayons or something like that.

Incidentally, I always thought Arieans love to travel light, so if there was a way they could actually velcro their possessions to their bodies so as not to lose speed as they go zooming about, they would do it.

They are all ugly, the Aries one especially so. Actually the cutesy paintings are alright it’s the jewels that are doing my head in. Yes, I think I might stand out less carrying a jumbo box of tampons Gala, too right.

Kinda embarrassed to share a sign with her, to be honest. I would rather carry a jumbo-sized box of tampons AT ALL TIMES… ? :\ Blunt, I know. But true.

I too am embarrassed. Seriously? A Virgo? The designs are so frou frou and awkward. Yuck.
