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!
