day 44

A newer to me Fossil that I got at Clothes Mentor last year. Coated cotton with leather trim, detachable adjustable strap, keys, and this supercool pattern. It’s got room for everything – even my laptop, if I use the strap. But it’s much cooler to carry it by the handles. And I gotta stay cool.

bag 32 – claimed

Coming to you from Procter Center is this backpack from Ecuador that I got at Goodwill. The interior is nylon that’s wipeable. Quilted bottom with a button closure and a zipper pocket on the front.

bag 26 – claimed

Searching for the front part of my boot led me to find some bags that I put in the hall closet for the giveaway that got covered with off-season clothing. Lucky me and you. Vera’s back with a small blue crossbody with an adustable leather strap. The pattern is so cool. Never been used – the tissue paper is still taped to the inside zipper fobs. Another Goodwill rescue, I’m sure. I thought one of the girls would like but they side-eyed me like… no, Mom.

bag 39

This cute Vera Bradley crossbody will work with lots of outfits and let’s you travel light. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like bag 39.

bag 8 – claimed

Lucky Brand that I’ve tried twice to give away. Third times the charm. Bucket style with fabric and suede with lots of hardware. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 8. I really love the style but my back can’t take it.

bag 3 – claimed

Trying to be earlier today. It’s a work in progess, my friends.

A couple of years ago, during the Flying Pig 10K, l learned that i have a lower back issue. I rounded the five-mile mark and thought, “What the *)#@ is happening? What’s this pain?” My ortho doctor said “Let me see that bag. Why are you carrying so much stuff?”

TIme to lighten up. I started carrying Vera Bradley bags because they’re cute and lightweight. The fact that they are going out of fashion means thrift stores are full of them. I’m too old to care about trends to the point that i won’t carry something i like. I got a few at Goodwill and purchased this one along with some others, but the pattern doesn’t go with my stuff. Please email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it.

days 40-49

It’s the final countdown. Honestly I was so far from the blog, for a variety of reasons. I completely lost count. Fortunately, i was going though the process in every other way, taking pictures of the different bags each day. Even though i knew Pentecost was close, i still thought i had another week after this. So there’s lots of great bags that i planned to use but won’t make it this year. Cool!
