The wood clutch. Wonder of wonders. So impossibly chic, don't you think? I think with a strapless, natural-coloured, long linen dress, very floaty, and barely-there lizard sandals. Oh, and long hair in a large bun. Rather Ali McGraw updated, don't you think?

I remember that Heller ware fondly. A very chic store near our childhood home sold it and we each had a mug in a specific colour... one way to keep us from fighting over things!

AL - Love it. If only she would do a case for sunglasses. I lean more to the dominatrix look — black 3/4 boucle biker's jacket with an all round zip trim, black leather pencil skirt, seamed stockings, with the Alaia perforated ankle boots. And, a very severe black bob.

PD - I think I may just get these. I never liked the bright colours they used to come in, but I do like the white.

Mr. Bluehaunt said...

I have been eyeing the sugar pourer for is beautiful.

HOBAC said...

Mr B - I want it too.

Agreed. I like the Morgan Library gift shop around Christmas--good ornaments.
