Raise your hand if you have a gorgeous “dress-up” clutch purse sitting in your closet that you used once for a wedding that you don’t even remember 🙋♀️ . You don’t remember, not because you drank 1 too many Manhattans, but because it was 30 years ago 😂. Yep, time flies when we are busy, doesn’t it? I hope my “Repurposed Vintage Clutch Purse” line-up brings a smile to your face and a giggle to go with it.

Isn’t this vintage looking white clutch just so gorgeous? Believe it or not, my son and I visited our local thrift store and I ran into this $3.99 Marilyn Monroe knock-out and couldn’t believe how beautiful it was. Almost wedding worthy! I have no idea how old it truly is, but it also reminds me of the flapper purses from the 1920’s. I wasn’t around then, but why do I feel like I was?
TIP: Put un-washable items from the thrift store in the freezer for 24 hours to help kill possible bugs/mites.
My gut told me…”Get it, girl.” So I did, and I have had so much fun playing around with the pocketbook all week. I’m going to crack you up in a bit when I show you how I repurposed it, but first I wanted to give you this cute idea using a pretty purse (especially an elegant one such as this) in your home decor.
Below you’ll notice how I simply placed this gorgeous clutch on a tiny wooden shelf in our master bathroom fireplace nook. It just seems to settle in so nicely here. I kind of fantasized about how the woman in the photo (me-okay maybe not) had lost her clutch that night in Paris and how it ended up in our thrift store 😂.
All kidding aside, I actually ended up hanging it in our foyer. It may not be what you would typically find on a wall in a home, and you certainly won’t find one in HomeGoods, but I will tell you it is a stunner conversation piece and fits into my elegant-eclectic decorating nicely. The best part is that it reminds me of that day with my son.
Okay, enough of the mushy stuff…I hope you enjoy the “Repurposed Vintage Clutch Purse” line-up and hopefully you will get a kick out of some of these ideas we came up with as a family. Be sure not to miss the last one.
My purse-onel fave…😂
