Clutch on to the Past and Hold on to Your Cash

I adore clutch purses. They are high on the desirability scale and are the perfect compliment to any wardrobe.

Love Me Some Leopard

Okay, leopard print is the token pattern of the Rockabilly world (and of course, the Cheetah Girls), but you don’t have to identify with any particular crowd to throw a little animal into your wardrobe. 

For those who are feeling a little wild, check out these new leopard patterned vintage finds I just put in my etsy shop at www.lovedovevintage.etsy.com.

What’s Behind Door No. 4?

Perhaps the name is a spin on the oh-so-trendy “Let’s Make a Deal” game show that graced the small screen back in the ’70s, but I have to tell you Door Number 4 is one of my favorite shops on Etsy. Being that I’m on a serious Peacock kick, I found the most amazing 60s seed bead covered oversized peacock purse ever at Door No. 4 and it sealed the deal. I’m keeping an eye on this shop. No I won’t be giving up my precious bag anytime soon (see pic below), but I will say that there are lots of mod and retro trendy goods to be had behind those doors.

My latest aquisition:

As of today, some of the super cool retro chic things you’ll find behind the Door include:

Super chic ’80s butterfly sweater: $68

A pair of matching “Go Go Madness” sunglasses: $30

Or how about an Aquarium around your neck for inspiration? $46

Lovin the Little [VINTAGE] Black Dress

Super cool that LoveDove Vintage (my etsy shop) was featured on the “Daily Swank” at Vintage Indie today.

Lovin’ on the little black dress, they picked out some super cute and oh-so-vintage party dresses that are perfect for the season.
