Hanging around the thrift store one day was this Donald J Pliner bag. It’s tiny but so cute I could not resist buying it. Plus, I know how expensive they are. It’s hung from a hook on my closet door for years. I think I’ve used it once. This is a case of bags as art. I really enjoy looking at them, but at this point in my life, if they can’t be both beautiful and functional, I need to let them go.
Snakeskin saddlebag, and when I say tiny, my whole hand cannot fit in there. The strap has a padded shoulder thingy and is detachable to turn this bag into a clutch. It’s so cool. Sometimes I let bags go and feel a twinge of regret. It doesn’t last, though. Feels like it’s going to be rough going from here on out because it took me a while to choose this bag. We’ll see what happens tomorrow, now that I can’t go to the thrift store to supplement the giveaway.
If you like this bag, email me at email@example.com with the following info: bag 23, your name, your address. Thanks!
Sunday was a long travel day so I brought this gray Travelon bag. It has equally sized main compartments on both sides, so using it for one day was rough as i couldn’t remember what was where – unzip zip unzip zip. It’s got lots of great organization, and it’s lightweight.
This Ogio backpack was at the St. Vincent de Paul on Este just hanging around waiting to be rescued. It’s a great backpack with padded straps and exterior cupholders. Those are backpack musts for me – and I need two cupholders. This is in pristine condition. If you’re in touch with yourself the ESPN W will only encourage you. Yes, Eric Carle’s Very Busy Spider hangs in my office.
Here’s another snakeskin print, this time much lighter and made for travel. Yes, it’s Travelon, with it’s adjustable strap and multiple sections to hold your stuff securely. It’s a cool design with two large zipper sections creating a middle section that snaps closed. There are zippers, pouches, and pockets galore. Know that your important items are secure while looking marginally cute. Just kidding.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with bag 18 if it’s calling you.
So maybe I really went overboard with the Vera Bradley situation. They were $5 and $6 so whatever. This one has an adjustable strap to go from shoulder to cross body. Very roomy inside with some interior organization. I can assure you that my water bottle is in that bag. I need to start posting some of the brown black and gray bags or you’re going to think it’s a complete colorfest. IT’S NOT.
Email me at email@example.com with bag 14. There are several unclaimed bags – get them before I take them to Dress for Success.
I have a giant pile of bags in my room. I guess it’s David’s room, too. So he’s upstairs and I said “bring down a bag for the giveaway, please” and he comes down with THIS. This is one of those bags that I put into the pile to be sacrificial but honestly I thought “I certainly must have more than forty bags in this pile, so there are a couple I won’t have to give up. Hee hee hee!” and THIS was one of those bags. So God must have whispered “Get the gray one with the super soft leather and cool hardware that she really likes – yeah, that’s the one.”
It’s by Reiss and it’s lovely. It has a buckle on each side to convert it from purse to tote. I got it at Clothes Mentor which if you didn’t know, is filled with really really great bags that are affordable. If you like high end designer bags check them out. I don’t play with the stuff they have to lock down in a resale store. Y’all can have Michael Kors.
