I have very few regrets about my wedding day, but one eensy tiny teensy one did pop up after we got all the photos and the video and we were oohing and ahhing over everything and then I looked some more and… umm.. oh. Hey, so… why didn’t anyone tell me my hair looked like that towards the end of the evening? And by “that” I mean “like I had sprayed it with maple syrup and then danced in front of an industrial strength fan for 2o minutes.” But you know what: as regrets go, I’ll take it. I loved every minute of my wedding, and my hair did too.
HOWEVER. You may want to do something I did not: bring a purse, or have someone set it down at your table on your wedding day. Not a giant hobo bag, just a lovely little art deco clutch with some essentials in it (like a mirror, or whatever those essentials are to you: Powder? Cigarette? Lip Gloss? Flask?). And so today’s post, helpful to any lady enamored of art deco style (not just those who are getting married): art deco bags! Perfect vintage style clutches, just for you.
First up: this fabulous Streamline Minaudiere by Judith Leiber. GORGEOUS.
Next up, for a bride with a more daring color scheme (or for a lover of art deco any other time) — this gorgeous green and black clutch from Diane Von Furstenberg. I love the colors, I love the machine-age chain strap, I love the design, I love it all.
Also a fan of this copper beaded crystal clutch from Inge Christoper. Just lovely, right? The colors alone are perfection (it also apparently comes in a black and silver variation.)
Another Art Deco beauty from Judith Leiber , and this is absolutely incredible! (with a price tag to match).
I also love the sturdy squareness of this Swarovski Kiosque Evening Bag. Vintage style minaudières are lovely, something very satisfying about those clean lines, no?
And lastly, here’s a lovely, true vintage art deco purse (at a more much reasonable price point, to boot). This is the perfect rhinestone flapper purse to accompany you to any art deco themed event!
