day 34

Liberty of London for Target – finally. I reached for this many times but decided to get past the halfway point. Sometimes you have to hold the carrot to ensure success.

day 31

Colorful Catori crossbody. Put it in the giveaway one year and no one claimed it, so I traded another purse to get it back. Glad I did.

bag 8 – claimed

Lucky Brand that I’ve tried twice to give away. Third times the charm. Bucket style with fabric and suede with lots of hardware. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 8. I really love the style but my back can’t take it.

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. Please email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it.

Liberty of London for target bag

i put off wearing this purse for as long as i could. liberty of london for target, maybe 3 years ago – there were lots of clothes, kids stuff, none of which i can wear. but when i saw this bag i knew i could participate. i love using it in the spring and summer months and i have to force myself to give it a rest, because i don’t want to wear it out. it’s got side pockets, people, 3 interior pockets, and two, front and back, now – two more exterior pouches. and then, to cap it all off, it’s got a strap to make it a shoulder bag or cross body. it’s a well organized bag that makes me happy. it doesn’t get much better than that for an inanimate object. perfect for a day like today.

ps: i just checked, and i was right – this line is from March 2010. i’m just glad my memory is still accurate in at least one arena.
