FILLER magazine has done it again! This editorial perfectly illustrates how one or two fabulous pieces can really send a message. They chose CTVC to complete their looks, and we couldn't be happier with the result. The way the eye goes directly to the jewels is wonderful.

Fun with Florals

posted on: Tuesday, May 24, 2011

Floral is hot for summer. Feminine, flirty, funky, colourful and sweet, it can be dressed up or down and make an eye-catching statement. Some may find such patterns hard to accessorize, fearing it will be "too much"! Never fear, it's all in how it is accesorized that can make the outfit!

The options are really endless. Bold plastics and tribal wood jewelry give the florals a more casual or edgy feel, perfect for a day on the town or travel. The beauty of accessorizing is that the same outfit can be transformed in so many ways!
Being the vintage lovers we are, we looked backwards to see how Vogue in the 60s accessorized their florals, and found some greats:

We even spotted a pin that we have!

Bold jewels are not just for little black dresses, they can take a colourful floral pattern to the next level and really finish the look!

Stay Florally Fabulous,

Lovely Lucite

Lucite is back! Brett Haymen has released a new line of Lucite clutches called Edie Parker. Featured in this month’s Vogue, the darling bags are striped and pearlescent, a fabulous statement.

We were thrilled to see the resurgence of these bags, and proudly revisited our vast vintage Lucite collection. Everything old is new again!

The possibilities are endless with Lucite. All colours, designs and structures make these bags truly unique. The added bonus of our collection is that these bags are vintage, one-of-a-kind pieces.

Take a look at some of our vintage Lucite purses and you’ll see why we love them so!
