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.

Bag 6 – taken

If you’ve been on this blog in previous years, you know i LOVE the Sak purses. Pebbled leather, rich colors, quality – i have a hard time leaving them in the thrift store. Then there’s the color red. But, how many red purses can one person own? So i’m happy to offer this red hobo with a braided brown strap, outer pocket and a few pockets inside. Yours when you email me at 50favbags@gmail.com.

I went back to work today after being out of the office for seven weeks. I feel like i need a week to recover. Hope your day was great.

days 40-49

It’s the final countdown. Honestly I was so far from the blog, for a variety of reasons. I completely lost count. Fortunately, i was going though the process in every other way, taking pictures of the different bags each day. Even though i knew Pentecost was close, i still thought i had another week after this. So there’s lots of great bags that i planned to use but won’t make it this year. Cool!

You’ve heard of those Target collaborations with designers, right? Early days it was Isaac Mizrahi, Proenza Schouler  and Liz Lange. Since they often don’t make plus sizes, i console myself with the bags, which are often fabulous. This one is from Paul and Joe. Ok i hadn’t heard of them either. I got this bag at Goodwill for my butterfly-loving oldest, but she is anti-purse and rejected it. The butterfly piece comes over the top and acts as a closure. There’s also a cool tassel zipper pull. Canvas with faux leather. I thought about keeping it just because but… email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it.

Two days to go… the five bags (other than this one) that are still available say “still available” in the title. Last chance before they go to the thrift store! Taken. Thanks!

This black pebbled leather purse is from the Gap. It’s a cute little hobo and can be yours when you email 50favbags@gmail.com.

I had a friend ask me today if I go shopping looking to buy stuff for other people. Often, maybe. Usually I’m just looking, which is when i find great stuff. When i find something too good to pass up, but i know i won’t use it, i can usually find someone who i know will love it. I’ve been very glad to share these bags with you these last few weeks. Taken. Thanks!

I love green, so I don’t give many green bags away. Here’s one to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. I saw one like this at a vintage store for $20. I cracked up inside. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if it’s you.

TAKEN – thanks!

The flu got me again. Back to bed.
