Ok I admit it – i put this in the giveaway last year, then swapped another purse out and kept this one when no one wanted it. Sometimes a bag is meant to be. After a tough week physically, I needed the pick-me-up this bag provides. I took it to Jaiya’s ballet performance of The Jungle Book last night. Makes an all black dress with boots look great. Read more about it here. I went nowhere today, so i’ll have to do a two bag day one of these days.
Fossil, complete with keys. Coated cotton makes a beautiful pattern durable. Wish the whole thing was coated – the top part isn’t, and it’s starting to show. Oxy is an effective, safe fabric cleaner. Fingers crossed. Got this at the Mt. Washington Goodwill.
Echo from TJ Maxx. Lightweight, fits everything and looks better than a Whole Foods bag. Front pocket just for phones. Can you tell how exhausted I was? This conference was wonderfully tiring.
Here’s what makes this year different from the others: I’m having to get rid of bags that I really, really like. Grudgingly modeled by my lovely daughter Kaia, here’s a Banana Republic hobo that I found at the Mt. Washington Goodwill, back when they had many more good name-brand bags. Whipstitching helps it maintain a casual look, but the thick leather is super classy. No, I’m not tearing up. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if this bag speaks to you like it spoke to me.
Wow, the day got away from me. Today’s bag is one I’ve had for a while. I like artistry, as I mentioned a couple of days ago, and woven leather makes me swoon. This Talbot’s dome bag will look great this Spring and Summer. Lined in a light tan/natural linen. Email me at email@example.com with “bag 7” if you like this one.
Got my cast off today; now I’m back in the tall boot for three weeks. Then, the magic words – PHYSICAL THERAPY!!!! I’ll try not to count down the days. I believe in living in the present, and being thankful for all that i have in the moment, and not spend too much time looking to the future. Meanwhile, see you at the thrift store – browsing! Peace!
This vintage crossbody/statchel by Meyers was hanging around the thrift store. I liked the color, simple styling, and overall vintage details – those old zippers! The interior is this soft, brown vinyl. I don’t know this brand, but it was made in Italy. Enough said.
Modeled by my lovely girl, Jaiya – because it was Kaia’s turn, and she was on her way to work and picked up bag 3 for Jaiya to photograph her with. I texted her and said “You took Jaiya’s picture with that bag two days ago.” Her response: “Oh flip.”
Never a dull moment with these girls! Peace.
Next post will be Monday; Sunday is a feast day.
