Joan Rivers is quoted as saying “No woman I know
could ever be a terrorist. Put a bomb in a Gucci bag? Oh, no way!”
A funny quote to be sure, but I think most women feel strongly about their handbags whether it’s a Gucci or a $5 find from the thrift store. Statistics from Shop Etc. tell us that the average woman has six handbags – what? only six? I don’t know any woman who only has 6 bags. My closet currently holds about 15 and I’m not a handbag hoarder, a clutch cacher, or a pocketbook pack rat. One bag we can never have enough of is the convenient clutch. Because of their compact size and all purpose handiness they are a great way to add numbers without bulk to your accessories wardrobe.

Fall is here at last! Time to update your wardrobe with the lovely and rich palette of the season. In my days as a fashion designer,the first step in creating a seasonal line was a visit to Pantone’s color forecast. Here are a few items from Noble Savage Vintage on Ruby Lane and Etsy which complement this Fall’s lovely palette…
This classic wool crepe suit is a great size and the color sits right in between coffee liquor and nougat making it an obvious choice for the season.
- 1950′s Sacony Wool Crepe Suit
One of my personal favorites. So bold and rich in Phlox velveteen.
- 1940′s Purple Velveteen Suit
A classic and cozy knit dress in cedar. Pair it with bold statement gold or bronze jewelry and a leopard bag.
- 1960′s Olive Jantzen Knit Dress
A fabulous 1960′s faux fur leopard purse. Mixing the neutral tones of Nougut and Coffee Liquor this animal friendly purse is always in fashion. The question is not where can I wear this, but what will this not be fabulous with.
- 1960′s Faux Fur Leopard Purse

Summer has officially begun and ahead lies long, sultry, steamy, hot n’ lazy summer days.
With the long dog days of summer now upon us, breaking out in cool summer whites can help to bring the temps down just a bit. What better way to stand out, look and feel cool, calm and delightful than when decked out in summer whites? From bright brilliant white to antique white, ivory, pearl, cream, tan and everything in between, cool shades of white run the gamut. All the subtle shades of white come to life in the summer sun.
Whether paired with a vintage faux pearl hand bag, to a pair of simply retro bright white resin earrings or even a white raffia handbag with deep chocolate lucite handles for striking contrast, white always draws attention! So for your next Wedding, Garden Party, Afternoon Tea, or Barbeque, stand head and shoulders above all the rest in the fabulous shades of white!

Well it’s only a matter of days before Prince William and Kate Middleton tie the knot. One of the things I really enjoy seeing are the hats and dresses that the ladies wear. We might even see Princess Anne recycle something she’s already worn, as she did when attending the wedding of Lady Rose and George Gilman. Princess Anne is known for her tendency to repeat outfits and is known to have said, “‘A good suit goes on for ever. If it is properly made and has a classic look you can go on wearing it ad infinitum.”
So take a page out of Princess Anne’s book and check out what’s old but new today at Born Too Late Vintage.

There’s really nothing more intimate than a woman’s purse. There are many styles, shapes and materials that purses are made of. Is your lady a clutch carrier, shoulder bag collector or is a pocketbook with double handles more her style? Does she prefer her purses be made of straw, fabric or leather? Doe she like vintage purses? If so we have just what you need for that impromptu gift, the gift that will surely never be forgotten.

Oh sure every so often they might try a different style trying to break out of their self imposed rut, but somehow, most women go back to their favorite style. And why not? You simply get your variety in the fabric and colors of your purses. Having a favorite isn’t such a bad thing.

Purses are a very personal choice for all women. My own personal preference is a satchel style purse while my mom’s favorite was a purse with as many compartments as possible. Still others like my daughter love a duffel style purse and my grandmother loved the standard heavy duty granny bag. No matter what type of purse you love you can’t go wrong with a vintage bag and now’s the time to peruse fall and winter styles like suedes, velvets and fine leathers!
