bag 30

This is a stylish bag perfect for situations where you need to travel light. The middle section holds stuff and the two outer sections have their own zipper compartments. This one is by Travelon. I always rescue these and baggalinis because they’re moderately expensive, even in TJ Maxx. Email me with bag 30 at 50favbags@gmail.com if you’d like it.

This baggalini crossbody is cute but a bit too small. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like bag 26.

bag 15 – claimed

Marino Orlando bag made in Italy. Used to see these all the time at TJ Maxx but they were super expensive. This one is vintage that I got at St Vincent de Paul – I know because I scratched my finger on a leftover staple inside the bag. It’s out now. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 15.

bag 9 – claimed

Just because you love something doesn’t mean you should collect it. I like Fossil bags and started collecting vintage ones a few years ago. It’s time to let some of them go. Here’s a small crown bag with handles and a shoulder strap. Three interior sections keep stuff in its place. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you’d like to have bag 9.

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!
