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!

B. Makowsky large hobo falls in the too heavy category for me. It’s gorgeous. Zipper details, silver strap details, leopard print lining, three sections inside with pockets. It can be a little black hole-ish*, but it’s the price you pay for style. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like this one.

*don’t drop your keys down there.

Let’s just rip the Stone Mountain bandaid off and post this sweet bag i bought last year. Black pebbled leather with patent leather trim and handle, glossy pewter hardware, pockets everywhere, and it’s just classy. I have a friend who saw this bag and drooled a little. Ok, maybe not drool, but she definitely gushed. If you like structure, organization and class, you may like this bag. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com for bag 27.

It’s funny that i call this bag small, and on Jaiya, it doesn’t look small. This girl is 5′ 7.5″ and weights 109. I’m 5′ 8.5″ and I don’t weight 109. Keep that in mind when evaluating the size of these bags. Peace!

Green has been my favorite color as long as I can remember. When your favorite color becomes a trend, it’s your chance to choose clothes and bags that you wouldn’t get to choose under other circumstances, so take advantage. The good news there is that when people get tired of that trend, the stuff goes to the thrift store, which is where i found this tote from The Sak. Green pebbled leather, with a cross body strap and longer shoulder straps, this tote will work, travel, or both. Why would i get rid of my favorite color, favorite type of leather, and favorite designer? Because a person can have too much of a good thing. And, it’s part of the sacrifice. So if you get this bag, enjoy it! 50favbags@gmail.com.

Bag 13 – taken

Here’s a cute bag that got me with the tube shape, pebbled leather, and silver details. check out the placement of those studs; that was no accident. The staple shows it was at the St. Vincent de Paul. When i shop for bags at the thrift store, i check the label, and if i’ve never heard of it, sometimes i’ll google it. This time, i didn’t care. I checked the seams, lining, zippers, and straps. But the basics include the above and the random sniff test. Email me if you like this one at 50favbags@gmail.com.

Why email me? it’s easier for me to communicate with folks about this from gmail than here, Facebook, etc. Thanks in advance for following this rule. Peace!

Bag 3 – taken

This black tote by B. Makowsky was hanging around the thrift store, and I couldn’t resist the silver hardware. I never got around to using it.

Which brings me to a thing about thrift shopping: thrifting and finding awesome deals can be as addicting as gambling. Giving away these bags each year helps me to get better and better about NOT buying as much stuff as I did in the past. Still, I can succumb to studded black pebbled leather.

If you like it, please email me at 50favbags@gmail.com. Bags 1 and 2 are still available. Peace!

 

bag #12 – taken

Tignanello again – this time a black pebbled leather shoulder bag. This is a beautiful bag with a front pocket, interior zipper pocket, and an adjustable strap. Silver details and feet (those things on the bottom of the bag that make it cooler) add a cool, modern touch. I got this one at the Este St. Vincent de Paul, and it was more than i would pay usually – but it was half off, so $10. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag #12 if you’re interested in this beauty. Taken by my bestest friend – thanks!
