bag 22 – claimed

Recently someone asked me if I give bags away, do I also abstain from buying bags. That’s a great question. This year, the answer is no. I am short on bags, as i have greatly decreased my shopping overall. I picked this baby up at Valley Thrift today because it’s 25% off, in great shape, and someone out there needs it. There were several other bags i could have bought but i restrained myself. I like the brand Tignanello a lot; i own a couple and have given many away. Here’s a black shoulder bag that has three sections, chain lining, and my favorite pebbled leather with whipstitching. Enjoy multiple pockets and pouches to stay organized. It’s yours when you email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 22. Modeled by Jaiya.

Today’s bag is one I bought in the last six months. Gorgeous pebbled leather hobo with a convertible strap, so it goes from crossbody to shoulder bag. This leather feels plush and awesome for you tactile folks like me out there. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you’d like bag 13.

Yesterday’s bag had issues, sorry about that. When I find the missing piece I’ll post it. Instead, here’s one straight from the back of my closet door. That’s a spot of high priority. Purses there are beautiful or used often or both. Today’s is beautiful, and I’ll miss it, but I have this photo to remind me. Someone please enjoy this DKNY satchel style bag with many sections pockets and pouches for all of your gear. Strap fits over the shoulder or over your arm (how I wore it). I love the satchel look a lot; what can I say. I’m an intellectual who loves style. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like bag 12.

If you’ve been here before, you know I like Calvin Klein bags and clothing. Cool, modern, clean lines, and in my size. Their activewear is great too. Anyway. I had an amazing CK bag stolen a few years ago and I’m still trying to replace it. So when I see a cool Calvin Klein purse, I buy it in the moment and regret it later. So I get to give you a cool bag with a short shoulder strap but plenty of room for a magazine and your water bottle. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like bag 7.

It’s Valentine’s Day on Ash Wednesday, so let’s start with a bag I purchased a few weeks ago at my favorite Goodwill. I was headed to a birthday party for a couple of my friends and knew the perfect gift would be a bag. I walked in with seven minutes to make my purchase before the store closed. I quickly grabbed four purses, including this cute red baby. It’s a no-name purse, but well made and very cute with moc croc and a puffy heart. Footed, adjustable strap, and lots of interior organization for such a small bag. Well, it’s small to me. Plenty of room for your purse basics. Those of you who know me know i need something to fit my water bottle. But this WILL fit a LaCroix. Modeled by my sweet angel babe Jaiya!! She’s almost 5’9″ for your reference.

The rules:

  1. follow the rules.
  2. email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag # if you’d like to claim it.
  3. i deliver or mail to you.
  4. please do not send me a message on facebook, text me, or corner me except to say “i emailed you at 50favbags@gmail.com.”
  5. how come i keep repeating the same thing? because, my loved friends, five years have taught me. repetition is important.
  6. any bags not claimed will go to a good cause, unless they end up in a box under my desk at work. then, they go back into next year’s rotation, or to a friend who needs a spur-of-the-moment bag to go to the opera.

This year should be truly sacrificial. I don’t buy nearly as much as i used to. I mean i have cut my purchasing by 90%. It’s serious. I still get the urge to shop, but i act like a kid in a toy store with parents who say “don’t expect me to buy anything.” i play with the purses, appreciate them, take random pics, then leave it somewhere i know it will be found, purchased, and loved.

Days 17 & 18

Yesterday’s bag, Tuesday May 2, started out to be a red Fossil satchel style cross body. As i wen to leave, i had to sit down for a few minutes. The daggone bag was too heavy and too small. Lots of hardware will get you every time. I couldn’t even think about going upstairs to find another bag. Then i remembered one I was going to give to goodwill, and went to the living room and grabbed it. Lightweight with three sections, it’s a really great bag. The handles have started to peel so it had to go. Not anymore.

Today i chose a Banana Republic pewter pebbled leather shoulder bag. It’s gorgeous, feels great, but is a black hole bag. It does fit my iPad and water bottle, however, so it’s a keeper. Thanks Goodwil!
