Genuine vintage crocodile purse, head and feet, vintage jewelry, rhinestones, beads, featherscomments (0) October 8th, 2011 in gallery
Couture crocodile purse with her beautiful head and front feet. Shelby is the most famous purse from my entire Hopscotch Couture line. She is adorned with vintage jewelry, vintage rhinestones, vintage beads, and feathers. There is quite a story behind the lovely Miss Shelby. When I first met her, she was just a mess. Her little baby crocs had all gone upstream to college and some started families of their own. She had always been a strong woman and quite beautiful. The last few years, however, took it's toll. We all know the story. Husband finds a younger bimbo croc and leaves without so much as an apology. Even though she looked tired and obviously sad, there was something very stunning about her eyes.
It took some work, I'm not gonna lie, but, today she is a major babe. To her ex husband croc, we say, eat your heart out. Shelby, is wearing a couture vintage fur and feather hat from the Hopscotch Couture line. Her striking vintage rhinestone jewelry, also Hopscotch Couture. The green gemstone in her bracelet really brings out her green eyes. She had her nails done in a lovely spring pink. Shelby got herself a new plastic wood grain handle. She is adorned with additional vintage clear rhinestone jewelry on top and on the sides. Also, along each side, she is wearing 2.50 inch long beaded black trim from Holland. Only the best for Shelby will do, after all, she is worth it. Inside Shelby is lined in a very very soft suede with three side compartments, one zippered. She has some vintage gold silk ribbon edging the top opening. Shelby measures 11 inches wide by 7.25 inches high and her rich coffee colored skin is just gorgeous. Despite all she has been through, she has hardly aged at all. She is ready to hit the town and paint it red.
