Day 2

The Sak makes these nice cross body bags that are small but hold a lot of stuff. Gold is bold, perfect for a Monday. I’ll admit: I was leaving for my third errand of the day and couldn’t find my water bottle. I checked the car, the kitchen, living room, couldn’t find it. It was in the purse. Yes, that kind of day. Thank you for the perfect sized phone pouch on the back, large interior, with a zipper flap leading to another whole area. Yes i also have one in black. Thank you, Goodwill – got it for $6.

IMG_0313A couple of years ago, wristlets and little hand bags were the “in” trend. I saw this bag at the St. Vincent de Paul in Mt. Washington, a weird-shaped bag that you carry on your wrist of in your hand. I like weird, so I bought it. Looks much better over Kaia’s arm than mine, I can tell you that! The beautiful cognac color and supple leather balance out the unique shape. If you like to be different, try this bag. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if it’s calling your name.

Bag 33

Five years ago this summer, my purse was stolen out of my car. Losing that particular bag was by far the worst part. That Calvin Klein snakeskin patterned leather hobo was by far one of my top five faves of all time. Last summer in Connecticut, at Goodwill, I found this bag made of the same leather with the same style hardware, but it’s smaller with a front flap closure over a zipper closure. I had to face it, it’s just too small for me. So if you like beautiful used designer bags, grab this cutie. Please mail me at 50favbags@gmail.com.

Here I go again with another vintage woven bag. This J. Foss leather tote has a Western touch, yet has African beads hanging on leather cords. It’s a multi-ethnic bag that will hold your 11″ laptop, your real-print newspaper, and more. Throw in a baguette and you’re back in the early 2000s. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like this baby.

Look who’s back on modeling duty! Kaia worked hard and enjoyed Hawaii, but she’s glad to be home. Me too; i was getting hungry for some home cooking!

Here’s a Coach baby bucket-style bag, but with a flat rectangular bottom. Is it real? I think so. I always sit in the store and check the numbers. But, i’m no pro.  The good news here is that for you, there’s no risk – free is free. It’s a bit small for me so here you go. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if this is for you. We keep Spencer.

Bag 26 – taken

Stone Mountain remains a reliable brand for those of us who try to stay simultaneiously organized and cute. This one grabbed me with the silver studs that accent the matte almost-pebbled leather. Multiple interior pockets will keep your stuff straight, and the notorious key fob is included. Back zipper pocket and front pocket keep important items handy. This cutie was $4.50 at the St. Vincent de Paul. I usually save the price tag, don’t think my memory is so great. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you’re interested in this one.

And someone please send food… Kaia doesn’t get back from Hawaii ’til Sunday afternoon. Jaiya did make her first steamed cauliflower today, though. We might survive.

Bag 21 – taken

IMG_3318Fell asleep – but it’s still Friday on the west coast, so… let’s talk about a lightweight leather tote from the sak. There’s lots to love about this tote, and frankly if i start describing it too much, i might keep it. Handles are long enough to fit over the shoulder, but short enough not to drag the ground when you carry it. Open tote to fit all of your stuff, but maybe not your laptop. Email 50favbags@gmail.com with Bag 21 if you like it.
