day 37

Ok I had to take advantage of these photos from 2013 to explain why I love baggallini so much:

  1. they don’t use capital letters in their logo – LOVE
  2. the ergonomic zippers – LOVE
  3. RFID
  4. small but hold a bunch of stuff because there’s a place for everything or it’s magic
  5. perfect size to throw into a larger tote or backpack when you’re traveling or commuting or have a diaper bag or something
  6. crossbody straps that cross MY body which means they’ll probably cross yours
  7. so well made, you can find it at the thrift store looking brand new or $4-$10 because they can’t tell the difference between this and Thirty-One or some random off brand
  8. you can also get them at TJ Maxx or Marshalls so if you need it to be new you can still save
  9. travel bags that don’t look super gonza – look it up, but the word defines itself

Love you, baggallini.

day 36 – yesterday

I brought this bag down to photograph and post about and then… who knows?? That day is gone, but the bag is still here.

One of my favorite bags on one of my favorite comforters ever. I took this pic in 2013 – the year the blog debuted. This is a beautiful Adrienne Vittadini handbag with gorgeous pebbled leather, whipstitching, and this mock tortoise buckle in cream and black. It has a magnetic closure but the sewn under the leather kind.

It’s got a big opening inside with a zippered divider so that things don’t get too chaotic in there. The zipper pull on that middle section is made of the same tortoise as the front buckle. There’s another back wall zipper pocket so it’s as functional as it is beautiful. It’s big enough to hold a folded magazine. Elegant without being too fancy – I love to carry this one when i have an event, which i did in May of 2013 – the May Festival Chorus with the Youth Chorus, when Nia was still in high school and sang in that group.
