It's Aqua Blue Heaven Friday, kids!
What is it about poodles that makes us so nutty? Vintage poodle novelty prints will always be hot and coveted by the vintage-lovin' gal. Even celebrities of eras past loved their pet poodles...
...French singer Genevieve loved her poodle so much she took him to a New York antique store, as seen here in 1959....
...Actress June Havoc apparently liked to bury her poodle in the sand, here in April of 1950...
...and Zsa Zsa Gabor pranced around her penthouse in a peignoir with her poodle, because, of course she does dahling.
But why poodles? Why not schnauzers? Or basset hounds? Or pit bulls? I guess we'll never know how exactly they became the kitschy dog print of choice and you know what? Who cares. They're fun and girlie and whimsical, end of story! So today's theme for Aqua Blue Heaven is, natch, the poodle. More specifically, the vintage 50's/60's poodle handbag. Enjoy!
