day 48

This Coach purse was at the thrift store, and they clearly thought it was a fake. It’s not. It’s beautiful with a purple lining. It’s a lovely bag, with lots of pockets and pouches to keep it from being a black hole bag.

Not a year goes by that I don’t use my Jil Sander dome bag. I almost fell down on my way to snatch it from the rack at goodwill years ago. Is is real? Well it’s lined with leather so you be the judge. Who fakes Jil Sander is the better question. Either way it’s a gorgeous bag.

day 41

Found this Fossil backpack at the mount Washington goodwill. I used to get lots of fabulous bags here, but the selection has changed. I was glad to find this even is there’s no key. Lower right corner has the name embossed. I was using this one for weeks before the fifty days of Easter. My water bottle fits perfectly. I really am getting down to the wire – very few purses left.

This bag by Insiders NY is one of the coolest bags I own. I got it at goodwill for $6 around six years ago. Checking again online, this bag still sells and the price is $250 now. They take photos and print them on soft, buttery leather. The bag is a little small, but not too small for my water bottle. It also has a little leather pocket inside or a phone. It’s perfect when I need a boost like I did today.

day 37

Fossil saddlebag crossbody leather and canvas with brushed nickel hardware. I know that wasn’t a sentence; I’m too tired to be creative. I’ve always been fascinated with the mail pouch look. If it were bigger I’d use it more. Water bottle is too big.

day 35

This DKNY crossbody hangs on the back of my closet with my most beautiful bags. Some are beautiful and I use them a lot, some are so cool and I love to look at them but don’t use them as much. I don’t have many of these anymore, which feels good. ANYWAY this is classic safari camera bag meets modern styling with nickel hardware and cognac leather trim. It’s a keeper.

day 32

This Liz Claiborne leather constructed hobo is one of my favorites. Every day of the 50 days of Easter I reach for it and then think no, I need to wait. Well today was the day – I was wearing gray and black and needed a boost. Well made, beautiful details, smooth, soft leather – it was a thrift store win.
