day 29

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.

Cool with me.

day 28

Last week, we got an email with a link to BTS concert info. You could only have a 4.5×6.5 bag unless it was clear, and I don’t have any clear bags. Good thing I got this concert bag last week on our Chicago field trip. We had a blast!

day 23

This Ugg crossbody saddlebag style purse came from the Mt. Washington goodwill. Those were the good old days. The color goes with lots as it’s not exactly brown, nor is it burgundy. It’s a dark brownish brick color.

It’s Easter, and I’m celebrating the 50 days of Easter with 50 bags. None are available for giveaway or sale. Including this one. Or any other ones. You get it now.

day 19

Liz Claiborne small bag with leopard sides and lots of details. New to me from the Woodlawn goodwill for $6 – don’t forget your senior discount if you’re over 50. We’ve earned it.

day 15

My Banana Republic tote carried organic apples and donut holes to youth group meeting today along with a laptop and all of my other stuff. We planned for our Heifer Fair next Sunday. I got this at the thrift store, I think. Need to read the blog to remember. Front pocket is great for phone and/or keys. It can be a bit of a black hole, so it’s better with a smaller purse inside.

day 4

Yesterday’s bag was a Cole Haan green patent leather satchel-style purse. I think I got it at the thrift store but maybe Clothes Mentor. The scuffs help me know it’s patent leather vs. pleather. Did I mention green is my favorite color? This bag is best worn with a scarf on it and with a not-all-black outfit.

day 2

Yesterday’s bag is a Fossil saddlebag I found at the thrift store a few years ago. This pic is at Walnut Hills High School, my beloved school where i thought a steel drum concert was happening. Even though I was wrong, I’m always happy to breathe the rarefied air of WHHS.

As for the bag, it’s a little too small. If I put my water bottle in, the flap doesn’t close all the way. Whatever. I still like it. Long live vintage.
