A Question!

"Dear Purse Diva: Can you show me a good example of mixing vintage clothing with modern pieces? Kim, in NM"

Why yes Kim! I have the perfect example. Take a look at this -

This is a 1970s Etienne Aigner burgundy leather jacket, and we've paired it with modern 7 For All Mankind jeans. See how fabulous the two look together? Sometimes head-to-toe vintage can look a little corny - heck, unless, of course, you're at the VLV convention. But for everyday, it's a tough look for everyone to pull off. Just adding a simple vintage piece to your modern wardrobe really adds to your entire look. If not a vintage jacket, why not try adding something like this -

to complete your modern ensemble, a 1960s lizard kelly bag.

Or for an evening look when you're going out clubbing -

a pair of 1970s silver sparkle glam pumps.

It's all in the details ladies!

Thanks for your question Kim!

Summer Dreamin...

All right, fellow Diva's...I don't know about you, but I have had all the wind, snow, ice, rain, and power outages that I can stand for one year! I've started dreaming lately about waves, sun, sand, palm trees...ahh...

Been listening to lots of Kenny Chesney, Jimmy Buffett, and Bob Marley, checking the airlines for good know how it goes!

Anyway, all this dreaming (of course) lead me to start window shopping, and take a peek what I came up with - it's NEVER too early for Summer!
