hey jude

Another one of my finds at my favorite vintage shop, Mommy's Closet, is this adorable snakeskin clutch by Judith Leiber. (Isn't my doggy so cute? He totally did his signature coy look.)

According to mommy-dearest, she found it at Loehmann's in the 80s for $30 or so. Isn't that amazing? I think it was a pretty good investment on her part. Thank goodness I saved it from the Goodwill bag!

Admittedly, the skin has gotten dry over time and is extremely delicate so I don't use it often. But when I do, people definitly stop me and ask where I got it from. To which I blithely reply, "It's vintage."

Hahahaha! Okay. I'm dumb.

Jude also has this perfect-for-when-I'm-trashed-and-can't-keep-track-of-my-bag hidden strap. I can just throw it over my shoulder and ta-daaaaah! No worries about leaving it in the hands of some dishonest person.
