Let’s just rip the Stone Mountain bandaid off and post this sweet bag i bought last year. Black pebbled leather with patent leather trim and handle, glossy pewter hardware, pockets everywhere, and it’s just classy. I have a friend who saw this bag and drooled a little. Ok, maybe not drool, but she definitely gushed. If you like structure, organization and class, you may like this bag. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for bag 27.
It’s funny that i call this bag small, and on Jaiya, it doesn’t look small. This girl is 5′ 7.5″ and weights 109. I’m 5′ 8.5″ and I don’t weight 109. Keep that in mind when evaluating the size of these bags. Peace!
Stone Mountain remains a reliable brand for those of us who try to stay simultaneiously organized and cute. This one grabbed me with the silver studs that accent the matte almost-pebbled leather. Multiple interior pockets will keep your stuff straight, and the notorious key fob is included. Back zipper pocket and front pocket keep important items handy. This cutie was $4.50 at the St. Vincent de Paul. I usually save the price tag, don’t think my memory is so great. Email me at email@example.com if you’re interested in this one.
And someone please send food… Kaia doesn’t get back from Hawaii ’til Sunday afternoon. Jaiya did make her first steamed cauliflower today, though. We might survive.
Target started teaming up with designers several years ago for limited edition, affordable product lines. Here’s one from Botkier, whose bags can run from $200-1500 for out of print versions. I like this little faux snakeskin bag, the details are very moto rocker. Clasp and zipper closure, chain strap, interior pockets and two snap exterior pouches. Would make a great evening bag for an edgier look. Of course it would look fabulous dressed down, too. Now, i wouldn’t have thought i would part with this, but the truth is, i found Miu Miu purse to serve the same function. So, there could only be one. Let me know if you’re feeling this botkier baby by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Got my boot off today; now rehab can begin. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS
Fall being my favorite season meant i could not pass up a red patent leather dome bag with real leaves between the patent and the leather. I mean, come on! It’s sat happily, or maybe sadly, in my cedar closet until fall arrived each year, then i maybe carried it once. Made by Debra Lewis San Francisco, it could be yours when you email email@example.com.
Here’s a woven bag I got at Goodwill. Why can’t I resist woven bags?! This one has a long leather strap that could cross body or stay shoulder. Very roomy inside with three sections, zipper pockets and a middle snap closure. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if this strikes your fancy.
Jaiya got to choose the bag today, and she chose this sweet little drawstring purse that I got at some little store in Athens, OH years and years ago. Can’t think of the name of it, but it’s still there. This is a cute cross body for a small person, or that bag-in-a-bag concept. Makes a great evening bag for someone who likes to keep it nutty-crunchy. Email me at email@example.com if you like little woven drawstring purses.
We decided to take the pics on our first trip back to Glenwood Gardens in many months. How cute is my sweet babe with all this new life?
Fell asleep – but it’s still Friday on the west coast, so… let’s talk about a lightweight leather tote from the sak. There’s lots to love about this tote, and frankly if i start describing it too much, i might keep it. Handles are long enough to fit over the shoulder, but short enough not to drag the ground when you carry it. Open tote to fit all of your stuff, but maybe not your laptop. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with Bag 21 if you like it.
Keeping it real – i’m sick today, and didn’t have the energy to take new photos. Here’s a very cute cross body bag by the sak that i found at St. Vincent de Paul for $7. Colorblocked red pebbled leather, smooth tan leather accented with black whipstiched leather, this little baby will go with lots of different looks. Perfect blend of dressy casual – it could go either way. Detachable strap means its a cross body, shoulder bag or clutch. Goldtone accents, around 6″x9″. This would be great to have in a bigger bag so you don’t always have to schlep your giant purse to lunch or out to Myrtle’s. Not that i know anyone who does that. Email email@example.com with Bag 20 if you’re feeling it.
There are a few other bags still available, scroll through the titles and if it doesn’t say taken, it’s up for grabs. Peace.
Here’s one i offered before, but somehow it ended up in a bag in my family room. Don’t ask. It’s a Maxx New York Signature mock crock shoulder bag with lots of organization inside, and outer pocket perfect for a phone or other items you need to keep handy. Bags with lots of pockets hold more than you think they would, and structured bags keep things organized and not lost like a black hole hobo. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you like it, and it’s yours.
I featured this bag a few years ago – i remember buying it on a particularly good purse thrift experience at the Mt. Washington Goodwill, which sadly no longer sells this caliber of bags. I bought it because it’s one of my favorite purse brands, Tignanello, and because it reminded me of my mom. She loved spectator shoes and purses, and had them in navy and white and black and white. I like looking at this bag, and it’s a cool purse, but I can look at a photo when i want to be reminded.
One of the cool things about this bag is that it’s a shoulder bag and a cross body. Adjust the strap and you’ve got two looks for the price of free. Email email@example.com if you want to rock the black and white spectator look.
