Bag 40

My angel babe finishes out this year’s bag giveaway with a Loeffler Randall for Target faux leather bag. What a gorgeous bag, inside and out. Lined with gold fabric, this bag is both structured and relaxed. I usually rock this in the autumn and winter months. If this bag speaks to you, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com.

Here ends the bag giveaway. I’ve enjoyed the thrills and challenges of this process. I can definitely say that my buying habits have changed. I leave many, many more bags in the store that i would have purchased in the past. That might not bode well for future giveaways, but it bodes well for my clutter, consumption, and wallet.

Tomorrow begins 50 favorite bags, where I carry a different bag each day of Easter from my not-so-massive-anymore collection. That process presents its own set of fun and challenges – like not quite getting everything out of a bag and having to retrace my bag steps to find that receipt, appointment slip, nail clipper… first world problems.

I wish you all a blessed Easter, if you celebrate. Whether you do or don’t, I wish you peace.

Bag 25 – taken

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 50favbags@gmail.com.

Got my boot off today; now rehab can begin. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSS

Liberty of London for target bag

i put off wearing this purse for as long as i could. liberty of london for target, maybe 3 years ago – there were lots of clothes, kids stuff, none of which i can wear. but when i saw this bag i knew i could participate. i love using it in the spring and summer months and i have to force myself to give it a rest, because i don’t want to wear it out. it’s got side pockets, people, 3 interior pockets, and two, front and back, now – two more exterior pouches. and then, to cap it all off, it’s got a strap to make it a shoulder bag or cross body. it’s a well organized bag that makes me happy. it doesn’t get much better than that for an inanimate object. perfect for a day like today.

ps: i just checked, and i was right – this line is from March 2010. i’m just glad my memory is still accurate in at least one arena.

devi kroell for target bag from 2007

devi kroell for target. i love when the designers do target, but usually i can’t do the clothes because they don’t make plus sized. like big girls don’t want designer style! so, i accessorize.

i have really enjoyed this bag for the last 5+ years. it’s bigger than it looks, and has held up very well with its pleather self. it’s a great rainy day bag, dressy or casual.

it’s a keeper.
