bag 2

This Liz Claiborne bag packs lots of details into a little bag. Zoom in and view the strap detail, small studs, buckles, and the signature Liz Claiborne brushed logo. I think I got this one at Goodwill, but honestly, I can’t remember so it may have been St. Vincent.

I have several LC bags and have given lots away because they are high quality, beautiful, strong bags with the softest leather. As Jaiya says, periodt.

These photos are from last Eastertide during the 50 favorite bags part. My Toyota Sienna died last June, and I got a new car just before the new year. So I wanted to honor my car of 13+ years by sharing some pics while I give away some bags.

If you’d like this bag, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com and say bag 2, your name, your address. Thanks!

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.

How I chose two Liz Claiborne bags in a row is beyond me. But here we are. This briefcase is mock croc faux leather aka pleather or vegan leather as the folks are calling it now. If you knew me as a librarian, you might remember me rocking this bag at the public library and Sands Montessori. I carried it a lot, especially when I was creating Homework Central. What can I say; I felt super classy.

The bag has several internal dividers like a mini file cabinet and has a spot for your computer. There’s also an outside pocket on the back for your favorite magazines and papers.

I got this at TJ Maxx around 15-17 years ago. Mock croc is a pattern that never really goes out of style. Neither does patent leather. So it’s a classic look that you can dress up or wear as my sweet baby is with a casual look. It elevates your whole aura. I carried it a LOT, and it looks fantastic.

I’m not sure exactly why I’m parting with this bag, but sometimes you have to close your eyes and let it go.

bag 20 – claimed

Remember old school Liz Claiborne bags? I had a couple back in the day; the coated leather circle bags with the embossed pattern? Yeah, I know some of you remember those.

Today brings this Liz Claiborne fabric bag with leather trim that reminds me of Fall. Let me tell you: If you see a Liz Claiborne bag with these kinds of detials and this kind of zipper, it’s a higher end bag. There are some cheaper or knockoff LC bags, but check out the quality of the trim and hardware and you’ll be able to tell. This one has a beautiful leaf pattern with brown leather whipstitched trim. Very spacious with three sections inside: two large sections with a zipper seperator will transport all of your… stuff with style. The leather feet are the cutest part of this bag to me. Yes, I really like this bag, but I have a red leather LC that you will see in the 50 days of Easter, so I’ll be fine.

day 32

This Liz Claiborne leather constructed hobo is one of my favorites. Every day of the 50 days of Easter I reach for it and then think no, I need to wait. Well today was the day – I was wearing gray and black and needed a boost. Well made, beautiful details, smooth, soft leather – it was a thrift store win.

Bag 9 – taken 

Okay, I struggled with myself to let this one go. This is a vintage Liz Claiborne purse, 100% coated cotton with leather trim. I mean, it screams 80s and early 90s. And of course, all that stuff is back again. If you need a lightweight bag, this is it. The drawstring closure with the wooden beads will take you right back to your mustard oversized button down and your multi-colored loafers. Oh wait, that was me. Email me with “bag 9” at 50favbags@gmail.com and make everything old new again.

 

days 20-29

Since there are so many days, i’ll just do photos and a short post. I have been vigilant in practice, but not in sharing. To remind you of what I do during Easter, I carry a different bag every day for 50 days. Switching bags every day is both fun and a drag, but mostly fun. Forcing myself to delve into my collection and use them is the fun part, the challenging part is getting everything from bag to bag. I’m missing more stuff this time around, it seems. Nail clippers, where are you!?
