it's no secret i like coins of all shapes and sizes. i have vivid memories of learning all the coins in miss parrish's class, nickel versus dime, saving and counting and pinching my pennies.
and this joan miller dress (also from design archives) is just waiting to make its debut on a crisp spring day.
in the past few weeks i've come across two more contenders. a greek coin brooch from an oslo flea market.
and most smile-worthy, these italian leather flats from absolute vintage bring together some of my favourite things: metallic leather, perforated/punched leather, fringe(!) and of course coins! they will be seeing a lot of wear in the days to come.
i think i will start saving up for an addition from opulent oddities. swoon.
