day 27

img_9342

Yes yes y’all – DKNY for your Friday. I love these pics with my old van that we donated to charity last month.

This is a really cute bag, I call it my safari bag. I’ve never been on a safari, but whatever. Cotton khaki with cognac leather trim, two outer zipper pockets and a hook closure. Very roomy inside, and a long crossbody strap which goes across MY body means this is a keeper.

 

day 16

Me, the girls, our masks, and this DKNY quilted leather bag went for a ride today. I think I got this at Clothes Mentor but I’ll have to read the blog to find out for sure. Did you know you can search by bag? I’m very thorough with my tags. Librarian.

day 25

DKNY safari style crossbody with an appearance by Shooky. Such a great bag. Those designers think of all the little details.

day 8

My favorite thing about this Donna Karan DKNY quilted leather bag is its casual elegance. This looks just as fabulous with a dress and comfort heels as it does with jeans and an oversized sweater, which is how I’d likely wear it. Today is somewhere in between – confirmation and Bishop visit and errands later.

Only DKNY or Calvin Klein or a designer like that could get me to carry a bag with a chain. It’s not my kind of look but somehow it doesn’t look frufru here. The leather ranks in the top five softest in my collection. Maybe top 3 – I’ve never done a softness inventory. Maybe one day.

day 35

This DKNY crossbody hangs on the back of my closet with my most beautiful bags. Some are beautiful and I use them a lot, some are so cool and I love to look at them but don’t use them as much. I don’t have many of these anymore, which feels good. ANYWAY this is classic safari camera bag meets modern styling with nickel hardware and cognac leather trim. It’s a keeper.

day 27

You would not believe how soft this leather is. I could sell tickets. Usually, I’m not into chain straps. I made an exception with this DKNY black quilted bag because it has a leather strip threaded through the links so it’s not so loud. Only thing that doesn’t fit is my water bottle.

bag 12 – claimed

Yesterday’s bag had issues, sorry about that. When I find the missing piece I’ll post it. Instead, here’s one straight from the back of my closet door. That’s a spot of high priority. Purses there are beautiful or used often or both. Today’s is beautiful, and I’ll miss it, but I have this photo to remind me. Someone please enjoy this DKNY satchel style bag with many sections pockets and pouches for all of your gear. Strap fits over the shoulder or over your arm (how I wore it). I love the satchel look a lot; what can I say. I’m an intellectual who loves style. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like bag 12.

Day 19

IMG_0488Reminder – giveaway phase is over, this is an Easter celebration of bags. Ok.┬áSince 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.

Days 17 & 18

Yesterday’s bag, Tuesday May 2, started out to be a red Fossil satchel style cross body. As i wen to leave, i had to sit down for a few minutes. The daggone bag was too heavy and too small. Lots of hardware will get you every time. I couldn’t even think about going upstairs to find another bag. Then i remembered one I was going to give to goodwill, and went to the living room and grabbed it. Lightweight with three sections, it’s a really great bag. The handles have started to peel so it had to go. Not anymore.

Today i chose a Banana Republic pewter pebbled leather shoulder bag. It’s gorgeous, feels great, but is a black hole bag. It does fit my iPad and water bottle, however, so it’s a keeper. Thanks Goodwil!

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!
