The Clutch

Vintage Lilly Pulitzer fabric clutch & matching headband

I've been making these new clutch purses with vintage (1960-70s) Lilly Pulitzer fabric.  I am crazy about them. I hope you share my enthusiasm. I currently have a little over 200 Lilly prints on hand (both vintage & contemporary) and plan on making several more over the next month. I will definitely have a clutch giveaway during the next few weeks. I will have about 5 clutch purses in my vintage Lilly etsy shop by Friday.  Here's a link:

Clutch purses are the coolest because they lack shoulder straps and basically say, "Please, don't bother me, I'm busy holding my purse."  If you want to look really busy, I would suggest holding your clutch with both hands. No one would dare ask you to help them move a couch or change a baby's diaper when you have one of these one-of-a-kind vintage Lilly clutches in your grasp. 

Here are a few questions you are likey to be asked when holding a clutch:
"One olive or two?"
"May I pull the car around for you?"
"Where did you find that darling purse?"

Here are few questions that you are not likely to be asked:
"Can you grab that end and walk towards me?"
"On your way to the gym?"
"Would you like the extra value meal for only .48 cents more?"

So clearly, life is just better with a clutch. Plus, it actually holds stuff. Be informed, they won't hold diapers (mostly because I said so)...Yay!! 
Can you see the "Lilly" signature?

    I sjust tarted a blog that I think you might like. It combines fashion and giving back to charities. Each week, I will give away 1 Lilly Pulitzer dress (this week it’s the Pink Adelson Shift from Spring 2010) to one lucky follower, who raises awareness of the blog's selected charity through various ways such as tweeting about it or commenting with an interesting fact. I am currently also giving away some great Lilly stationary items too. Please check out my blog at because doing good is chic!
