bag 19 – taken

Here’s another Fossil – i do love to collect them. This is a messenger bag crossbody in a thick cotton twill with leather trim. Lots of compartments, laptop section, and a place for everything. I used it once last year to deliver chocolate crosses to my youth group on Easter. I hope someone can enjoy it. I got it from Goodwill and it’s in great shape.

Yes yes y’all – DKNY for your Friday. I love these pics with my old van that we donated to charity last month.

This is a really cute bag, I call it my safari bag. I’ve never been on a safari, but whatever. Cotton khaki with cognac leather trim, two outer zipper pockets and a hook closure. Very roomy inside, and a long crossbody strap which goes across MY body means this is a keeper.

 

day 1

IMG_1588Preface: the giveaway is over – you have until Monday evening April 13 to choose from unclaimed bags before I take them to Dress for Success.

Happy Easter!!

Starting today, I celebrate my collection of bags for the 50 days of Easter, which ends on Pentecost. For the past eight years, I’ve carried a different bag every day for the 50 days of Easter. Changing bags every day is no joke! Even though I’m not going anywhere, I’m going to continue my practice. One thing I’m doing in my work life at Forward Movement and Calvary Episcopal Church is staying consistent in our messaging. I think I need to do that for myself, too.

Today I was thinking about this – It’s Easter – and my family and I had dinner together, but we did not dress up. We thought about it but decided not to. Which makes me wonder – why do we dress up? Why do we put on our Easter finest? Do we do it for others, or for ourselves? Maybe now is not the time to ask this question when my mental state is not the best, because the answer would probably be different. Anyway.

Today’s bag is from Fossil. I used it to deliver chocolate crosses to my youth group. I got this messenger bag from Goodwill in the last six months or so. It’s canvas with leather trim, with a padded laptop sleeve and an adjustable strap. Very gender neutral, which I love. Not that David will ever use it – he has his own bags. Yeah, that I bought for him.

bag 6 – claimed

Always bet on baggallini. I love this brand. When I see it in the thrift store in good condition, I grab it because I know someone will be blessed by it. This khaki-colored crossbody has an adjustable strap to double as a shoulder bag. This one is very roomy with two snap closure pockets in front and two pockets on the back. Lined in red, so don’t open it at Target or folks will ask you where the bike locks are located. Found this one at St. Vincent de Paul on Este for $8. Find them for a reasonable price in all sizes at TJ Maxx for $20 for a small bag and on up.

If you like this bag, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with the following info: bag 6, your name, your address. Thanks!

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 19

IMG_0488Reminder – giveaway phase is over, this is an Easter celebration of bags. Ok.┬áSince I’m on an adventure today, I thought I’d use this DNKY safari-style bag in khaki cotton with cognac leather trim. I love the long strap that makes it a perfect cross body for me. The cool hardware is balanced by the lightweight fabric, so it’s not too heavy. So many cool details like the leather pulls on the front exterior pouches. I got this bag at Plato’s Closet, a resale store for juniors. Check them out for great bags at a value. I get no money for that plug BTW.
