day 49

Found this bag at Clothes Mentor and got it even though it’s heavy. I could not resist the perforated leather. You can zip and unzip without having to hold anything. Next time you unzip your anything, ask yourself: did I have to use my other hand to get it done. By linea pelle.

This Coach purse was at the thrift store, and they clearly thought it was a fake. It’s not. It’s beautiful with a purple lining. It’s a lovely bag, with lots of pockets and pouches to keep it from being a black hole bag.

day 47

No, I didn’t plan to collect any more fossils this year. But this is what happens when I’m not looking. The fossils are just THERE. I was looking for a white dress for someone’s graduation and there was this stunner. Built in handles. Colorful, modern coated cotton pattern. Adjustable strap and keys. Interior and exterior pockets. But I didn’t want to pay $35. Don’t forget, I’m cheap. So I said “sigh I wish there was some coupon or discount.” Cashier checks my account and says “oh you have a reward of 20% off your whole purchase” and here we are. Hashtag worth it.

Here’s my faithful Kipling complete with the little gorilla charm. This is a bag that can hold a lot but looks small. Water bottle fits. Crossbody strap – check. A place for everything – yes. This bag works.

day 45

Not a year goes by that I don’t use my Jil Sander dome bag. I almost fell down on my way to snatch it from the rack at goodwill years ago. Is is real? Well it’s lined with leather so you be the judge. Who fakes Jil Sander is the better question. Either way it’s a gorgeous bag.

Green is my favorite color, so a green purse at the thrift store has a higher percentage chance of being bought than most other colors. Then there are designers that I prefer that have a higher percentage chance of being bought. So when there’s a green patent leather Cole Haan purse for $5 it’s as good as sold. It’s pretty roomy with space for my water bottle as long as it doesn’t leak. It doesn’t.

day 43

This Vera Bradley frame purse practically made me buy it at the Woodlawn goodwill this past winter. I really love frame bags and couldn’t leave without this purse. It’s very roomy and boasts a front pocket perfect for a phone or keys. This look was perfect for a spring Sunday that started off at church.
