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 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.

day 24

Today I used this echo tote I got at TJ Maxx a few years ago. I had a black and white one just like this and I have a large overnight bag in this brand. Very lightweight and fun. I particularly like the handles and adjustable crossbody strap. Fits a laptop and all of my other goodies.

It’s Easter, and I’m celebrating the 50 days of Easter with 50 bags. None are available for giveaway or sale.

day 12

Abstract leopard print with shimmer in the leather. Got this at TJ Maxx several years ago when leopard was the trend. Animal prints weren’t my thing until I heard Clinton Kelly from What Not to Wear say that animal prints are all about celebrating the beauty of nature. Here we are in a Denver Starbucks with my friend Sandra Montes.

My daughter Kaia loves Patricia Nash purses. I’ve found a couple in the thrift store – one was a frame bag – and she was so excited. For her birthday last year, she got herself a Patricia Nash wallet. So when I saw this at TJ Maxx, I was like… hmmm… which one of us is going to get this bag? I love round things, embossed leather, and most of all, fringe. She loves Patricia Nash. So, we share it. She can use it whenever she’s home, but it lives at our house. Perfect.

The fringe is excellent for people like me who like to touch things, not people. It’s so soothing to run my fingers through that fringe, braid it, shake the braids out – it doesn’t take much, people. Not much at all.

Shooky (keychain) is excited that BTS won two Billboard awards tonight!! Best duo/group and top social artist. What does this have to do with bags?

day 10

Out here in Denver for the Episcopal Communicators conference and I couldn’t leave home without my Swiss backpack. Four sections: 1. computer and papers 2. purse and other stuff 3. napkins, spoon, fork and lunch/food 4. phone, keys. It has two side pockets for water and coffee, and very comfortable straps. I shopped for this backpack for months until I found the one that fit all my requirments. TJ Maxx meant IĀ could afford it.

Bonus bag: Episopcal Communicators tote #Episcomm19

 

bag 36

Ok so the guys out there don’t feel neglected, here’s a computer briefcase by Incase. Room for your laptop, cords, headphones, and lots of other papers/magazines/small books and other items of that ilk. Large zip pocket in front and a little phone or key pouch on the back. A couple of little marks on the front won’t prevent you from carrying your stuff stylishly. Dawn or oxyclean will likely solve it.
