Vintage finds always have a way of melting my heart, it's their now unique style and design and the story that has encompassed it's entire life. The countless sojourns, the many soirees and the untold people it has come across is ever so thrilling. It's seen much more than most of us could ever dream of in our lifespan. Each wrinkle, crease and mark has a fascinating story behind it and best of all it's literally stood the test of time, remaining sartorially relevant in it's own right. These three lovely ladies belonged to my late aunt Maria and I guess you could say I've somewhat inherited them being her only niece. They too have accompanied me to many a gathering and received an abundance of compliments and admiration. They're utterly precious to me in ways other than it's sartorial brilliance. That said they always end up back safely in her closet when not in use. 

Have you guys ever inherited or found that je ne sais quoi that's seized your heart with it's charm and grace?

  15. These are all gorgeous! The black one is my favourite though, that little flash of patent is so perfect! You're so lucky that she kept them in such good condition & was able to pass them onto you. My mum & gran never kept any of their old clothes or accessories, so I have nothing like this to inherit, it's a shame as looking back at old photos they had some beautiful pieces.
    PS: Hope you get some relief from the heatwave soon! I would happily send you some of our rain & snow if I could! ;)

  42. Hiya, thanks for the visit.
    They are all lovely, it's funny that with the palm trees back round it gives it more of a Miami in the 80's vibe hehe.

  43. Oh man! You just reminded me that I never wrote my review post of the op shop challenge. Oops :P

    I love these clutches!! They're so lovely and you're so right about both the 'standing the test of time' part and about the stories that go with vintage. It always seems to make an accessory or piece of clothing so much more special :)

    Hope you're well Sonia! I'm enjoying finally catching up on your blog on this lazy Saturday morning :)

    Love from Milan!
