Bag 32 – taken

Here I go again with another vintage woven bag. This J. Foss leather tote has a Western touch, yet has African beads hanging on leather cords. It’s a multi-ethnic bag that will hold your 11″ laptop, your real-print newspaper, and more. Throw in a baguette and you’re back in the early 2000s. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like this baby.

Look who’s back on modeling duty! Kaia worked hard and enjoyed Hawaii, but she’s glad to be home. Me too; i was getting hungry for some home cooking!

Bag 27 – taken

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!

Bag 19 – taken

Here’s one i offered before, but somehow it ended up in a bag in my family room. Don’t ask. It’s a Maxx New York Signature mock crock shoulder bag with lots of organization inside, and outer pocket perfect for a phone or other items you need to keep handy. Bags with lots of pockets hold more than you think they would, and structured bags keep things organized and not lost like a black hole hobo. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it, and it’s yours.

 

Bag 2 – taken

Bag 2 is a nice-sized cross body by Fossil, modeled by my lovely middle (and now, proudly, shortest) daughter Kaia. The bright pink gives the perfect pop with your neutrals. You know i love Fossil bags, and i couldn’t resist this one for $5 at St. Vincent de Paul. But how many Fossils does a person need? Wear this all spring and summer, then bust it back out for Advent. Make it yours by emailing me at 50favbags@gmail.com with Bag 2 as the subject line.

Forgot to mention: once a bag is claimed, i’ll add “Taken” to the blog title. This means if a bag doesn’t say taken, it’s still up for grabs and can be claimed anytime during the 40 days of Lent. Once Easter arrives, I’ll donate all leftovers to Dress for Success.

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!

bag #9

     In case you wondered if I’m having so much fun my giveaway doesn’t count as a Lenten discipline, here we go. This Maxx New York Signature is up for grabs today, and i do really like it. You can’t go wrong with mock croc; it’s a fall/winter classic. Carry it on your shoulder, or work the arm look and be fabulous. Croc-emobssed leather, two handles, lots of separate pockets and sections to keep your stuff niiiiiice. I picked this up a the Este St. Vincent de Paul a few months ago. After i took the pics i was like nooooooooo… but email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it and it’s yours.

Today’s bag is a cute Preston & York twill bag with leather trim. I love grommets; that’s what got me this time. It’s very crisp and clean looking – you’ll feel pulled together with this one. I like how the zipper pull has a piece you can just hook your finger into and pull. When I opened it up to take a pic of the inside, my 12yo said “oooohhhh that’s so pretty!”

I got it at the St. Vincent dePaul on Este for $6.99, or maybe it was half off – i don’t remember. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with “bag #2” in the email somewhere and i’ll send it your way. TAKEN – thanks.
