bag 30 – claimed

img_4352

There was a store in the Brentwood shopping center – I can’t remember the name of it, maybe Conway? Some TJ Maxx type store but not as nice. But hey, if a store is in my neighborhood and has purses you can bet I’ll be checking it out. I got this green Stone Mountain bag there when we used to live in College Hill. Structured hobo with plenty of space inside, adjustable shoulder strap in a sagey green. This is another bag where a friend of mine said, “If you ever get rid of that one…” So, it’s up for grabs for everyone, and I hope she sees it.

If you like this structured hobo bag, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 30, your name, your address. Peace!

bag 28 – claimed

Latico purse from TJ Maxx. Yeah, a few years ago, orange was THE color, and I had no orange because it’s not in my color wheelhouse. So I thought I’d get an orange bag. I looked and looked and looked and the bags I liked were SO expensive. I settled on this one, and I think it was $60, but $59.99, so it didn’t feel as expensive. Yes, it did.

The leather is lovely, and the color is deep and bright. But it’s a black hole. Click the black hole tag for an explanation if you need one; I’ve explained it multiple times in previous posts.

If you like this bag, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 28, your name, your address. Also, a reminder that Sunday is a feast day – so check out the blog for unclaimed bags. Email me at the above address with the same info but the bag # you want. Peace!

day 40

Latico leather hobo. Got this at TJ Maxx during the orange craze. It’s super soft and a bit of a black hole, but the color pop pop pops.

day 26

I got this bag years ago at the Tri-County Lane Bryant. It’s so cool; I remember when I bought it someone else bought the other one that was still there, and someone else tried to talk me out of it so she could buy it. Ummmmmm no. That was around 16 or so years ago.

bag 12 – claimed

 

Calvin Klein structured hobo in chartreuse. This is a sooooffffftttttt bag, and the leather is spectacular. Front and back pouches perfect for keeping phone and keys separate but accessible. I picked this up at Clothes Mentor a few years ago. It’s great with black instead of yellow, so you don’t get the bumblebee effect. Have fun this modern, colorful bag. The little leather tassels in the front could use a bit of Tacky glue or Gorilla glue or something like that.

Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 12 if this catches your fancy.

bag 11

A bag that is as fun on the inside as the outside. Burnt orange suede Lazaro with brown leather trim and a turquiose blue interior. The mirror is attached so your look remains… well maybe you look a mess, but you’ll know. I found this at goodwill and couldn’t resist the modern design. If you like it too, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com and request bag 11.

Hobo bag that i got at Goodwill for $8. I love green, and since it doesn’t always look great on me, i like green bags. But don’t worry, i have a few left that i like better with longer shoulder straps. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 27.

bag 13 – claimed

Today’s bag is one I bought in the last six months. Gorgeous pebbled leather hobo with a convertible strap, so it goes from crossbody to shoulder bag. This leather feels plush and awesome for you tactile folks like me out there. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you’d like bag 13.

Bag 16 – taken

Years ago, i wore this purse to my friend and hairstylist’s house. When she saw it, she about snatched it off my shoulder, she liked it so much. She told me if i ever got rid of it to let her know. Well, that day has come. I found this mock-croc leather hobo at Goodwill. “Oh my gosh,” Jaiya said, “it has wings! What is all this!” “Style,” i informed her. Made by Viva of California, it’s vintage and cool. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it.

Modeled by Kaia, photos by Jaiya. When i asked Kaia to model earlier today, she said, “I need to wait until Jaiya gets home to take the picture. Please?” These two.
