Day 19

IMG_0488Reminder – giveaway phase is over, this is an Easter celebration of bags. Ok. Since I’m on an adventure today, I thought I’d use this DNKY safari-style bag in khaki cotton with cognac leather trim. I love the long strap that makes it a perfect cross body for me. The cool hardware is balanced by the lightweight fabric, so it’s not too heavy. So many cool details like the leather pulls on the front exterior pouches. I got this bag at Plato’s Closet, a resale store for juniors. Check them out for great bags at a value. I get no money for that plug BTW.

Bag 39 – taken 

IMG_0313A couple of years ago, wristlets and little hand bags were the “in” trend. I saw this bag at the St. Vincent de Paul in Mt. Washington, a weird-shaped bag that you carry on your wrist of in your hand. I like weird, so I bought it. Looks much better over Kaia’s arm than mine, I can tell you that! The beautiful cognac color and supple leather balance out the unique shape. If you like to be different, try this bag. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if it’s calling your name.

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!

Well there you have it, one day to go, with commensurate wrap-up. Peace.

bag #36

I love this color a lot. It goes with everything; it’s just so classy looking. I searched and searched for a bag this color and finally found this one at TJ Maxx last year. It’s by Steve Madden and I paid $30 for it. It’s a four-way convertible bag in that it’s a shoulder bag, a crossbody, you can fold it over or carry it by the handles, and it has a zipper vented bottom. It’s just so cool.

I really like this purse, but I found one the same color at St. Vincent Depaul. It’s a vintage Nordstrom leather bag and is so beautiful that it makes it a little easier to give this one up. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it. TAKEN. thanks. 

bag #6

IMG_8752 IMG_2731There was a day a couple of weeks ago where my 15-year-old daughter was in a mood. I mean a SERIOUS mood. Nonetheless, I was feeling the pull of the St. Vincent dePaul near me so strongly that I risked ultimate meltdown and swung by on the way home from school. It was worth it. I got this for myself without researching the brand first because I knew it was leather and I loved the colors. In fact, I got this the day I got the Aigner day #2 bag. Alas, this was near the giveaway bags, and Jaiya chose it to give away today. Uncle. My loss is your gain, which is the point.

Kate Landry is a brand of bags made for Dillard’s. I’ve found mixed reviews of them online. Here you can see it in action in the parking lot of Sewn Studio in the photo by Kaia. This bag is about 10″ long and 5″ wide, and has three interior pockets. It’s in great shape, so if you’d like it email me at 50favbags@gmail.com. And never fear, I checked my inventory and found one the same cognac color. Yeah, I know… you weren’t worried.

TAKEN – thanks!
