bag 12 – claimed

 

Calvin Klein structured hobo in chartreuse. This is a sooooffffftttttt bag, and the leather is spectacular. Front and back pouches perfect for keeping phone and keys separate but accessible. I picked this up at Clothes Mentor a few years ago. It’s great with black instead of yellow, so you don’t get the bumblebee effect. Have fun this modern, colorful bag. The little leather tassels in the front could use a bit of Tacky glue or Gorilla glue or something like that.

bag 2 – claimed

I have a giant pile of bags in my room. I guess it’s David’s room, too. So he’s upstairs and I said “bring down a bag for the giveaway, please” and he comes down with THIS. This is one of those bags that I put into the pile to be sacrificial but honestly I thought “I certainly must have more than forty bags in this pile, so there are a couple I won’t have to give up. Hee hee hee!” and THIS was one of those bags. So God must have whispered “Get the gray one with the super soft leather and cool hardware that she really likes – yeah, that’s the one.”

It’s by Reiss and it’s lovely. It has a buckle on each side to convert it from purse to tote. I got it at Clothes Mentor which if you didn’t know, is filled with really really great bags that are affordable. If you like high end designer bags check them out. I don’t play with the stuff they have to lock down in a resale store. Y’all can have Michael Kors.

Let’s get right to it. Pilcro and the letterpress bag by Anthropologie that I found at Clothes Mentor a couple of years ago. I love yellow bags but i have a great one that serves my purpose so even though this is 1. a favorite bag color 2. pebbled leather 3. has a cool accessory I’m letting it go right out of the gate so i don’t change my mind.

This is a good sized bag and will fit all of your essentials and a small umbrella or – you know my baseline – a water bottle and a magazine.

Off to read at our Ash Wednesday service – Jaiya acolytes so – McKenneys in the house.

No, I didn’t plan to collect any more fossils this year. But this is what happens when I’m not looking. The fossils are just THERE. I was looking for a white dress for someone’s graduation and there was this stunner. Built in handles. Colorful, modern coated cotton pattern. Adjustable strap and keys. Interior and exterior pockets. But I didn’t want to pay $35. Don’t forget, I’m cheap. So I said “sigh I wish there was some coupon or discount.” Cashier checks my account and says “oh you have a reward of 20% off your whole purchase” and here we are. Hashtag worth it.

Got this backsack around 25-30 years ago at Pier 1. I loved the cowrie shells and little mirrors in the design. The cotton is faded, and it’s a black hole bag, but so what? I still enjoy looking at it and using it. Functional art.

When I saw this bag Clothes Mentor, I admired it but left it in the store. But I was intrigued when it was still there a couple more times after that. Pilcro and the letterpress? Never heard of it. Did my research and found out it’s an Anthropologie brand. You see how it worked out. After black and red, yellow is a great color to invest in. If you love a color but it looks… well… not so great on you, get the bag.

You would not believe how soft this leather is. I could sell tickets. Usually, I’m not into chain straps. I made an exception with this DKNY black quilted bag because it has a leather strip threaded through the links so it’s not so loud. Only thing that doesn’t fit is my water bottle.
