day 28

Last week, we got an email with a link to BTS concert info. You could only have a 4.5×6.5 bag unless it was clear, and I don’t have any clear bags. Good thing I got this concert bag last week on our Chicago field trip. We had a blast!

day 27

I recently added this new Kipling bag to the family, found at the Este St. Vincent de Paul. Lots of times bags like this end up at the thrift store without their signature charm. Kipling’s bags have a furry monkey. It’s cool, and I can definitely live without it. Thought I’d try it out on a road trip. Love it.

I really appreciate their tagline – live light. That’s my plan, Kipling. I’m trying.

day 18

Today’s bag came with my swag from the BTS pop-up store in Chicago. We are going to the concert in NJ, but Nia can’t come, so the four of us road tripped to Chicago to have some fun in one of our favorite cities. We all got free wrist snap bracelets with a timely message for me, my girls, and everyone who needs it.

I’ll enjoy this bag for a good while! It’s the little things!

Sometimes the reason I give up the bag is the reason I never should have bought it: it’s too heavy. This red Fossil satchel style bag has all my favorite things.

  1. adjustable strap with canvas on one side and leather on the other
  2. top handle
  3. functional hardware
  4. seperate pockets and pouches for organization
  5. back pocket for phone
  6. red

So even though it’s too heavy I bought it anyway. WHY? To at least rescue it from Goodwill. I could not leave it there. It’s been hanging from my purse rack and I look at it like… maybe someday. One day last year during the 50 days I carry a different bag during Easter, I tried to use this one and I didn’t make it out the door before I’d switched to something different. Gotta let it go.

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.

Wow, the day got away from me again! Left home late this afternoon to go to the gym; ended up at the thrift store instead. It was my 6th workout day, so i thought the thrift store needed me more. Here’s a bag i got at the Woodlawn Goodwill that you will love if you like bright colors and staying organized. Giani Bernini shoulder bag with a big inside area, two outer zipper areas, and lots of little pouches and pockets front to back. Leather and pleather in all the right places, but mostly leather. It’s a pinkish-red color. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it with bag 4.

Peace!
