Days 22 & 23

IMG_0555Today i went to the JCC to soak in the whirlpool; my whole body was aching from that 5K. I got this bag at St. Vincent de Paul in Mt. Washington NWT – that’s new with tags for you non-resale folks. It’s a brand called Rare Earth by Stone Mountain. Click here to see it on Amazon, the photos are much better there. I got mine for $15. I LOVE IT. It looks a little like a diaper bag, but it’s a true gym bag complete with the wet clothes bag and a place for EVERYTHING, including stuff i don’t have. I used it as luggage for our little graduation overnight in Ann Arbor, and today it was perfect for the gym. Thanks to whomever did not like it and gave it to St. Vincent.

I know Vera Bradley is so five years ago, but so what? They’re well made, lightweight, and some of the patterns are the bomb. I really like this black, white, and yellow pattern with birds and flowers. The end. Sure, they get dirty – this pattern will probably hide dirt better than others; time will tell. It was $8 at Goodwill where “seniors” over 50 get 10% off all the time. ALL THE TIME.

 

Days 20 & 21

Well, she did it! Our girl graduated from Bowling Green State University, and in her honor I carried this orange – and i do mean ORANGE Latico slouchy tote. I got this one at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago when orange was the color of the season. Like i always say – if you love a color, or marginally like it, get it while the getting is good. I looked for months before i found an orange i could tolerate at a good price. Latico bags are saturated with color, with the most supple, soft, scrunchy leather. It does have black hole qualities, but that’s ok. It’s a looker.

After the Flying Pig 5K, i thought THERE’S NO WAY I’M LEAVING THE HOUSE. Whoops forgot about a friend’s show. Calvin Klein to the rescue, in this soft, buttery, chartreuse leather with khaki leather trim. I got this at Clothes Mentor for IDK around $14 or so. Ok, so the strap is coming loose and it has some scuffs. So what! The color makes it fabulous, especially with neutrals. WINNER

I’ll get caught up yet!
