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.
This Raj brown leather fringe tote doesn’t get excessive use, but I’ve had it a long time. I got it at TJ Maxx around 15 or so years ago. It was fun to use today while out and about shuttling the girls around the world and back.
Fossil colorblock at Music Hall for West Side Story: film with orchestra. It was excellent. So is this pebbled leather. This is a bag that once I start i carry it for a long time. I’ll miss it tomorrow. I did get this at the St. Vincent de Paul for $12.50 I think. A fave.
I found this Isabella Fiore bag at Clothes Mentor a couple of years ago. I love everything about it: the beading – exquisite; the leather – divine; the zippers – like butter; the pulls – gorgeous; the woven handles – sigh. I hesitated to use it today because I thought I’d need it for a special occasion. Then I decided today was special.
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 email@example.com if you’d like it.
This baggalini crossbody is cute but a bit too small. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you like bag 26.
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 email@example.com with bag 15.
