On being fabulous – vintage style Orchids pill case by HoulderĀ 

So here’s the thing…I have migraines, and they suck.  But I have decided that I shall be fabulous regardless of how much migraines suck.  Lots of little things have had to be adjusted, like buying mostly fragrance free beauty products, and having to carry rescue meds on me…oh hey, if you have to carry meds, why not do it in style? 

  
This pill case is by Houlder and can be found on Amazon.  Many other cute styles are on EBay and Etsy!  I had an actual antique pill case, but I lost it…fingers crossed that it turns up! 

Nail polish is Zoya “Aurora.”

What cute purse/bag storage ideas do you have to share?

Vintage Fashion Find – 1950’s Stratton Pill CaseĀ 

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).  

  
Now this is how you carry your pills in style!
