day 35

Today is a new day – as in today, I’m sharing a brand new bag. As in, I bought it new with the tags – so rare for me! Even though the tags are still on it, all my stuff is in there. Well, not my water bottle. But it’s cool, since this is the perfect size to throw into my new Hap Tim backpack.

In my backpack quest, I discovered the brand Sherpani. They make sustainable backpacks and ones for anti-theft. I recently got the Soleil AT from my daughter as a gift.
Now, I’m a fan of TJ Maxx. It’s known. Thank goodness, after their site was down for a couple of weeks, it came back up – but for browsing only. I loved it! It feels great to love a company that takes care of its employees and has the good sense to put them before their economics. The site finally came back up for shopping around a week ago, but only taking a few orders a day.

One of the companies in their family is Sierra, and one day they had a link saying, “if you really want to shop, go over there.” So I did. I searched for backpacks, and along the way, found this bag. The pattern is one I liked a lot – c’mon, I’m an 80s girl who loves colorblock – and it’s from Sherpani’s essentials collection, which is 100% recycled. They also do work to clean oceans, called the blue verve project. The bag was on sale for $24.99, around half off. I decided to try it.

The verdict is – I love it. It’s got an adjustable crossbody strap, two zipper pockets on the front, a side zipper on the back with an open pocket outside. Inside, a zipper pocket and two open pouches for phone and whatever else you need to keep organized. It’s even got the nerve to be RFID protected.

It’s the first brand new purse I’ve owned in a long time, and I plan to enjoy it. I’ll let you know how it holds up in about a year!

Sometimes a bag is such a great bargain, i can’t leave it in the thrift store. This Nine West shoulder bag contains a matching wrist wallet and a detachable keychain – what a bargain! I was going to keep the wristlet and get rid of the purse, but then i decided the set needed to stay a set. If you love pockets, pouches, and more organization, this is for you. Small bags like this can hold a lot when everything has its place.

Now don’t be put off by this moss/olivey color. It isn’t necessarily a great match with black, or brown, but if you wear it with a colorful top or dress, say with jeans or khakis, you’re styling. Oh and it’s VEGAN – the new lingo meaning it’s not made of leather. I love it. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like this one.

Jaiya really loves to model, and Kaia likes taking photos. This time they wanted to get Spencer into the mix. So here you are. Life with these girls! The best!
