Days 9 & 10

IMG_0405IMG_0408

Yesterday, Monday, i thought, i’m not going anywhere; i’ll use this Linda Pelle bag which is technically too heavy but is too awesome to ditch. That turned out to be a myth; the girls and i went everywhere. But Oh My Goodness i fell in love with this bag. I hugged it at one point — the leather feels that good. And, it’s perforated. Black, perforated, handles and shoulder/crossbody strap… butter zipper… i couldn’t give it up after just one day. So, i used it in today’s bag, a Vera Bradley tote i recently picked up at the thrift store. Now, I don’t have a thing for Vera Bradley, but i do have a thing for nice patterns and light bags. This fit the bill. It’s great for hauling my purse, ice packs, exercise printouts from the PT, and change of shoes.

This style of Linda Pelle bag is no longer for sale, but a similar sized bag retails for $348, $150 on sale. It’s the softest leather i own. I got it at Clothes Mentor for $14. Check them out – there’s one in Anderson near the OAUC, Plato’s Closet, and Staples. There’s another one in the Hyde Park plaza. The Vera Bradley was at Goodwill and i think it was $10. Hashtag worth it.

Getting back to normal after the Episcopal Communicators conference, which was here in Cincinnati… almost there.

Bag 9 – takenĀ 

Okay, I struggled with myself to let this one go. This is a vintage Liz Claiborne purse, 100% coated cotton with leather trim. I mean, it screams 80s and early 90s. And of course, all that stuff is back again. If you need a lightweight bag, this is it. The drawstring closure with the wooden beads will take you right back to your mustard oversized button down and your multi-colored loafers. Oh wait, that was me. Email me with “bag 9” at 50favbags@gmail.com and make everything old new again.
