bag 20


Here’s another vintage Fossil bag complete with a shoulder strap/crossbody. Black leather with contrast stitching details, this structured bag has a sewn bottom that makes it uncrushable. If you like this cool bag from St. Vincent de Paul, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 50.

bag 17

Today’s bag (really yesterday’s bag) is from my Fossil collection – a medium-sized lavender pebbled leather with silver hardware. Perfect for Spring! Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like bag 17. Photos by my sweet Jaiya.

bag 9 – claimed

Just because you love something doesn’t mean you should collect it. I like Fossil bags and started collecting vintage ones a few years ago. It’s time to let some of them go. Here’s a small crown bag with handles and a shoulder strap. Three interior sections keep stuff in its place. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you’d like to have bag 9.

Days 15 & 16

Sunday had something in common: I rested and did not leave the house. But I did go upstairs and choose a purse, this Fossil saddlebag. Leather and cotton burlap combine with whipstitching and a long, adjustable strap to make it either a cross body or a shoulder bag. It’s got a large interior pocket that holds my water bottle, a smaller pocket that holds a small magazine, like Prevention (which is what’s in there), and a large back pocket for a phone. I am a sucker for a saddlebag, and I’m glad to rediscover that this bag is NOT too small for all of my stuff. Got this one at Goodwill for $8.

Today was Forward Movement’s board meeting, so i had to “haul it all.” I needed a large, lightweight bag so i got this silver tote from Wilson’s Leather out of the closet for this occasion. It has two sections divided by a middle zippered compartment. I got this for $10 at Goodwill four¬†years ago, and took it to California for – guess what – Forward Movement’s board meeting.

Bag 31 – taken


Here’s a Fossil tote that comes with a wristlet. This tote is small yet spacious. If you like totes, but they overwhelm you, this may be for you. Plenty of space inside, made covered cotton with leather trim. That means you can wipe it down and it will still look great. The dots are dark blue with yellow accents. I’ll post pics of the wristlet in a bit, but want to post before the day is done. Bring that pop of color to your life – great for a rainy Spring day. Got this one back in the day at my used-to-be-favorite Goodwill in Mt. Washington. ¬†Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like this Fossil.

You guessed it, my models ignored me today.

UPDATE: can’t find the wristlet! Maybe i gave it to someone… NO CLUE

Bag 2 – taken

Bag 2 is a nice-sized cross body by Fossil, modeled by my lovely middle (and now, proudly, shortest) daughter Kaia. The bright pink gives the perfect pop with your neutrals. You know i love Fossil bags, and i couldn’t resist this one for $5 at St. Vincent de Paul. But how many Fossils does a person need? Wear this all spring and summer, then bust it back out for Advent. Make it yours by emailing me at 50favbags@gmail.com with Bag 2 as the subject line.

Forgot to mention: once a bag is claimed, i’ll add “Taken” to the blog title. This means if a bag doesn’t say taken, it’s still up for grabs and can be claimed anytime during the 40 days of Lent. Once Easter arrives, I’ll donate all leftovers to Dress for Success.
