day 46

An old TJ Maxx favorite. Carla Mancini -bag I saw hanging there looking cool and different around 18 or 20 years ago.

day 45

I forget everything about this bag except that it’s a beautiful black hole. No organization. I think I got it at pier 1. Who knows. It’s a crossbody or shoulder bag.

day 44

A newer to me Fossil that I got at Clothes Mentor last year. Coated cotton with leather trim, detachable adjustable strap, keys, and this supercool pattern. It’s got room for everything – even my laptop, if I use the strap. But it’s much cooler to carry it by the handles. And I gotta stay cool.

This Avorio hobo made in Italy was hanging at the Mt. Washington goodwill for $8. I almost injured myself snatching it from the rack. Those days are long gone, un/fortunately. Here’s more about it. Pebbled leather, neutral color, adjustble strap – and a black hole.

This year is a little more… at home. Yeah, that’s my foot and one of my New Balance lightweight runners. The goal here is to get a photo each day and sometimes that photo is more real than I’d like, but that’s ok – welcome to my life.

day 42

Linda Pelle bag that I don’t use as much as I would because it’s too heavy. But I can’t part ith it because it’s got so many of my favorite qualities: soft, pebbled, perforated leather; bushed silver hardware, butter zipper. Here’s a bit more about it from the past. I did enjoy carrying it, but – it’s heavy. I have a cervical (back) issue where I really shouldn’t carry these gorgeous bags. I even took off the strap! If you like quality bags and not their price tags, check out Clothes Mentor.

day 40

Latico leather hobo. Got this at TJ Maxx during the orange craze. It’s super soft and a bit of a black hole, but the color pop pop pops.
