No, It's Not A Magazine

I can’t tell you how many times that I’ve repeated those exact words when out with this vintage clutch that used to belong to my grandmother. It was one of those items that she gave me when I was too young to really appreciate how fabulous it was. Instead I shoved it in the back of my closet and only re-descovered it many years later. It’s become one of my staple pieces and while you can find tutorials on-line for making your own and some pretty decent copies by contemporary designers, a good vintage one from the 70s or 80s is getting a little harder to find. If you’re interested ebay is actually a great place to look, a vintage clutch like this can start around $25 and max out around $300. What is one of your staple pieces?

    Im sorry love, I looked through all my comments and could not for the love of me remember what I said about Schwarzkopf.

    even though that IS my favorite brand 🙂 and I’m probably doing a giveaway with them soon…

    remind me and my ditzy blonde self will reply properly!!

    PS, this outfit is AMAZING, the shoes are to die for, and the intense close up of the back is superbly taken and so artsy! Love it! excellent photo blogging <3
