So, it’s no secret to anyone who knows me that I get migraines! I had just gotten this beautiful Stratton compact to go in my cute handbag, but I had the UGLIEST pill case for carrying my migraine rescue meds around. It was this very beat up hospital-y looking plastic thing. It was a crying shame, heh! So I started looking around for a vintage pill case and found that Stratton also made these, too. I did see some matching compact and pill case sets, but I had my heart set on using the compact I already had (more modern, with room for a larger modern day powder puff), so I just found one that wouldn’t clash much. This black one should go with any future brass and black enamel compacts I chose (there is an amazing Art Deco red rose design, though I have seen both pill cases and compacts in that design).
OMG! SO gorgeous! I love art deco styles!! Can I ask where you found this – and the powder compact you showed a couple weeks ago? I really want to get a cool compact to take with me – they look so luxe!!
I found them both on EBay but I have seen similar items on Etsy 🙂
