day 5

I found this Isabella Fiore bag at Clothes Mentor a couple of years ago. I love everything about it: the beading – exquisite; the leather – divine; the zippers – like butter; the pulls – gorgeous; the woven handles – sigh. I hesitated to use it today because I thought I’d need it for a special occasion. Then I decided today was special.

Yet another attempt to replace my stolen Calvin Klein bag. I really love the pebbled leather and modern hardware. But it’s a bit too small for me and too heavy to be as small as it is. don’t mind me, i’m an old lady with lots of physical maladies. It’s a beautiful purse, free to a good home.

Real Coach bags in the thrift store are hard to come by. I believe this one is real. It’s cute, and little, so you know what that means… email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 29.

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 (really yesterday’s bag) is from my Fossil collection – a medium-sized lavender pebbled leather with silver hardware. Perfect for Spring! Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like bag 17. Photos by my sweet Jaiya.

Days 15 & 16

Sunday had something in common: I rested and did not leave the house. But I did go upstairs and choose a purse, this Fossil saddlebag. Leather and cotton burlap combine with whipstitching and a long, adjustable strap to make it either a cross body or a shoulder bag. It’s got a large interior pocket that holds my water bottle, a smaller pocket that holds a small magazine, like Prevention (which is what’s in there), and a large back pocket for a phone. I am a sucker for a saddlebag, and I’m glad to rediscover that this bag is NOT too small for all of my stuff. Got this one at Goodwill for $8.

Today was Forward Movement’s board meeting, so i had to “haul it all.” I needed a large, lightweight bag so i got this silver tote from Wilson’s Leather out of the closet for this occasion. It has two sections divided by a middle zippered compartment. I got this for $10 at Goodwill four years ago, and took it to California for – guess what – Forward Movement’s board meeting.

Bag 29 – taken

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.
