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 12

Abstract leopard print with shimmer in the leather. Got this at TJ Maxx several years ago when leopard was the trend. Animal prints weren’t my thing until I heard Clinton Kelly from What Not to Wear say that animal prints are all about celebrating the beauty of nature. Here we are in a Denver Starbucks with my friend Sandra Montes.

day 8

My favorite thing about this Donna Karan DKNY quilted leather bag is its casual elegance. This looks just as fabulous with a dress and comfort heels as it does with jeans and an oversized sweater, which is how I’d likely wear it. Today is somewhere in between – confirmation and Bishop visit and errands later.

Only DKNY or Calvin Klein or a designer like that could get me to carry a bag with a chain. It’s not my kind of look but somehow it doesn’t look frufru here. The leather ranks in the top five softest in my collection. Maybe top 3 – I’ve never done a softness inventory. Maybe one day.

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.

day 1

Alleluia! Christ is risen! And now we celebrate this great news for the next fifty days.

My way of celebrating is to carry a different bag from my not-so-big collection every day for the fifty days of Easter. Today’s bag is a Isabella Fiore beaded leather bag that I got at Clothes Mentor a few years ago. The leather on this is gorgeous. The zipper is butter. The beading hooked me. It was $18. Please note that this bag is not up for grabs.

Today was full of my youth group, Jesus, my girls, David, my dad, sunflowers, Easter baskets with chocolate crosses and Squishmallows, and Howard Helvey snapping some pics of me making Korean hand hearts. I hope your day was great!
