day 45

Not a year goes by that I don’t use my Jil Sander dome bag. I almost fell down on my way to snatch it from the rack at goodwill years ago. Is is real? Well it’s lined with leather so you be the judge. Who fakes Jil Sander is the better question. Either way it’s a gorgeous bag.

day 29

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.

bag 3 – claimed

Trying to be earlier today. It’s a work in progess, my friends.

A couple of years ago, during the Flying Pig 10K, l learned that i have a lower back issue. I rounded the five-mile mark and thought, “What the *)#@ is happening? What’s this pain?” My ortho doctor said “Let me see that bag. Why are you carrying so much stuff?”

TIme to lighten up. I started carrying Vera Bradley bags because they’re cute and lightweight. The fact that they are going out of fashion means thrift stores are full of them. I’m too old to care about trends to the point that i won’t carry something i like. I got a few at Goodwill and purchased this one along with some others, but the pattern doesn’t go with my stuff.

bag #22 

IMG_1911This cute Cole Haan shoulder bag would not be left behind in the St. Vincent de Paul a few weeks ago. This allows me to make a point: I often buy purses that I KNOW i’m not going to keep. I thought about selling them on eBay or wherever, but I’m much happier giving them away. So, I consider it a bag ministry.

This is a bag that may not translate well in the pictures, but the leather is beautiful. I love the details, especially the pocket on the back. It has a faint mark on the back of it but whatever – it’s super cute and you can’t go wrong with the color; it’s seasonless. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it. IMG_1897 IMG_3864 IMG_2855
