In my recent thread on whether to keep or donate an old animal print bag, almost everyone responded that the bag, while having a fab print, read as "dated." However, Angie's response was that bags don't date.

Angie, I would love to see a bit more explanation and argument for this. I feel like some styles do read a bit as dated (my really oversized mint envelope clutch I posted recently is another example), but would love to be proved wrong, as I own a couple that don't feel current to me but would like to use them again.

Care to expound? I'd love to hear from others too, from either perspective.
