bag 28

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.

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 24

Another rainy day calls for a bright orange bag. I got this leather slouchy hobo from Latico at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago when orange was the color of the moment. It offers that pop of color when you want to wear blue or other neutrals – although I don’t ever wear it with just black. It was perfect today with my favorite Calvin Klein blouse and black and white checked pants. Yes, i wore two patterns and a bright orange bag today. And it was amazing.

Days 20 & 21

Well, she did it! Our girl graduated from Bowling Green State University, and in her honor I carried this orange – and i do mean ORANGE Latico slouchy tote. I got this one at TJ Maxx a couple of years ago when orange was the color of the season. Like i always say – if you love a color, or marginally like it, get it while the getting is good. I looked for months before i found an orange i could tolerate at a good price. Latico bags are saturated with color, with the most supple, soft, scrunchy leather. It does have black hole qualities, but that’s ok. It’s a looker.

After the Flying Pig 5K, i thought THERE’S NO WAY I’M LEAVING THE HOUSE. Whoops forgot about a friend’s show. Calvin Klein to the rescue, in this soft, buttery, chartreuse leather with khaki leather trim. I got this at Clothes Mentor for IDK around $14 or so. Ok, so the strap is coming loose and it has some scuffs. So what! The color makes it fabulous, especially with neutrals. WINNER

I’ll get caught up yet!
