Preppy Whales


Did you have a purse in the seventies/eighties with a whale on it? I was recently flipping through an LL Bean catalog and noticed these flip-flops with whales on them! Instantly flashed me back to my little whale purse and inspired this design. Can you believe, I actually still have my purse along with a couple of others from around that time? So I pulled them out and set to work. This whale from the A Muse Animal Wishes clear set is just so cute and he was perfect for this design!

Yes, I had the purse and the belt to with it. And lets not forgot the button earrings that I made myself- I guess I was crafty even back then!

i had the kelly green pants with the navy whales on them with a matching purse. The shirt was a navy blouse piped in kelly green with a peter pan collar. I am dating myself!!
