Fall being my favorite season meant i could not pass up a red patent leather dome bag with real leaves between the patent and the leather. I mean, come on! It’s sat happily, or maybe sadly, in my cedar closet until fall arrived each year, then i maybe carried it once. Made by Debra Lewis San Francisco, it could be yours when you email firstname.lastname@example.org.
well, this is a case of a very, very lucky find at goodwill. maybe a couple of years ago, i saw this bag hanging on the rack at my favorite goodwill. the leather looked real, and when i saw jil sander stamped on the front, i was pretty sure it wasn’t a fake. so i checked inside. the interior is just as luxurious as the exterior. there’s a low pocket that acts as a divider, and a zipper pouch reserved for my phone. the straps are long, and it holds my water bottle – win. it elevates any outfit and, well – it makes me feel special. all that class for $10.
i saved this bag until the second half of the journey so that i wouldn’t use all of my favorite favorites in the first week. mondays are my day for errands, dr. appointments for myself or the girls, and volunteering. i also try to catch my friend jill for a commiserative chat about our hs seniors. realization of the day – life comes at you fast. take it slow as often as you can. peace.
