Tonight I'm going to be using this rather bold vintage clutch bag!
It is called 'Japelle' by Shilton International which I believe is Jane Shilton.
It is rather special to me as it used to belong to my Mum, who most of my regular readers know very sadly passed away in April.
My Mum loved this bag, it was one of her favourites she used to tell me but I don't think it has had a lot of use, probably because it was one of her favourites plus of course it will have gone out of fashion too over the years, but she always kept it on the top shelf in her rather large 'built in' wardrobes ~ my Mum was very fond of clothes & had so so many, a running joke in the family when an occasion would arise & she would say 'oh what shall I wear, I don't have anything'!!!!!!
She always had something to wear & more often than not would find something lovely in her wardrobe which still had tags attached!!!!
Now of course it isn't out of place on a night out so I'm going to use it tonight!
It is a wonderfully bold wine red patent leather with a fabulous solid shape.
It isn't a special occasion or anything, we are off to an art event with lots of conceptual art, performances & a live band too. More of a relaxed night, but I thought I'm not going to save it for a special occasion as it should be used & enjoyed so that's what I'm going to do & I do so love my vintage clutches & this will be this ones first outing with me!
