Bag 28 – taken

The girls and I make fun of David sometimes because he’ll wear a blue shirt with black pants and brown shoes.We’re like, DUDE! Then why did i buy this purse that mixes three neutrals? Tignanello color blocked black, brown and gray in this large shoulder bag, and of course it works. They lined it with a beautiful, satiny print, gave it two side zipper pockets and three interior sections, and put it out there in the world for me to find it at the St. Vincent de Paul. If you like this one, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com. Then go ahead and mix your neutrals, or wear something super bright and let this bag ground you.

PS Jaiya is really getting into this modeling thing. Especially when i photograph her close to her bedtime.

Bag 16 – taken

Years ago, i wore this purse to my friend and hairstylist’s house. When she saw it, she about snatched it off my shoulder, she liked it so much. She told me if i ever got rid of it to let her know. Well, that day has come. I found this mock-croc leather hobo at Goodwill. “Oh my gosh,” Jaiya said, “it has wings! What is all this!” “Style,” i informed her. Made by Viva of California, it’s vintage and cool. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it.

Modeled by Kaia, photos by Jaiya. When i asked Kaia to model earlier today, she said, “I need to wait until Jaiya gets home to take the picture. Please?” These two.

Bag 13 – taken

Here’s a cute bag that got me with the tube shape, pebbled leather, and silver details. check out the placement of those studs; that was no accident. The staple shows it was at the St. Vincent de Paul. When i shop for bags at the thrift store, i check the label, and if i’ve never heard of it, sometimes i’ll google it. This time, i didn’t care. I checked the seams, lining, zippers, and straps. But the basics include the above and the random sniff test. Email me if you like this one at 50favbags@gmail.com.

Why email me? it’s easier for me to communicate with folks about this from gmail than here, Facebook, etc. Thanks in advance for following this rule. Peace!

Bag 7 – taken

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 50favbags@gmail.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!

bag #19


  
Here’s a bag I’ve had for at least 20 or so years. I got it at TJ Maxx when Nia was a baby and was my #1 shopping partner. David was in grad school, we had just left Ann Arbor (still crying inside), and we lived with my parents for 14 months. Needless to say I hung out in the streets with Nia a lot!

I have enjoyed this simple bag; its strap is long enough to be a cross body for me, so you know it will be one for you. Beautiful dark brown leather, square, about the size of a big square iPad. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you’re interested.

Check out what’s left by viewing the post titles – if it doesn’t say taken it’s still available.

Waiting for your bag from me? I’ve had a busy time of late – I’ll make deliveries on Sunday.

days 40-49

It’s the final countdown. Honestly I was so far from the blog, for a variety of reasons. I completely lost count. Fortunately, i was going though the process in every other way, taking pictures of the different bags each day. Even though i knew Pentecost was close, i still thought i had another week after this. So there’s lots of great bags that i planned to use but won’t make it this year. Cool!

I can’t resist woven things. Especially leather woven things. And if it’s a leather woven bag, and i can afford it, I’m buying it! This brown bag is up for grabs today, it’s super basic but super cute. Email 50favbags@gmail.com if you’re interested. Taken. Thanks. IMG_3005 IMG_3007
