day 29

Fossil colorblock at Music Hall for West Side Story: film with orchestra. It was excellent. So is this pebbled leather. This is a bag that once I start i carry it for a long time. I’ll miss it tomorrow. I did get this at the St. Vincent de Paul for $12.50 I think. A fave.

day 8

 

I found this bag at Goodwill last year and was attracted to the wooden handle. It’s by Zina Eva, who i’d never heard of, and when i looked her up, the bags were upwards of $200+ retail and even on eBay¬†$65 for a smaller one than this. Embossed patent leather, lined in suede, with pockets inside and the one on the outside perfect for a phone, not too heavy, and the water bottle fits. WIN for $8.

I stopped by Goodwill today – these pics were taken in the parking lot of the Woodlawn location, where i went after trying to walk at Glenwood Gardens but freaked out because of all the people there. I found three bags that i would have purchased in the past but didn’t buy today. Earlier i’d stopped by the St. Vincent de Paul on Este, and left these three bags there. Really nice but… i don’t need them.

Getting caught up today. Some folks like what they now call vegan bags. We used to call them pleather. Here’s a nice one from Nine West. Saddle style adjustable strap crossbody or shoulder with more room than meets the eye. Flat bags hold more than it would seem. The construction is high quality. Treat yourself to bag 23 by emailing me at 50favbags@gmail.com.

Here’s another vintage Fossil bag complete with a shoulder strap/crossbody. Black leather with contrast stitching details, this structured bag has a sewn bottom that makes it uncrushable. If you like this cool bag from St. Vincent de Paul, email me at 50favbags@gmail.com with bag 50.

Sunday bag because I’m behind a day. Here’s a new one I bought a couple of months ago. Beautiful blue color and the leather is butter but I rarely use a blue purse. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like this structured hobo. I can’t remember the designer; I’ll update later.

Went thrift shopping with my youth group today. Almost bought three bags but only got one. You’ll see it during Easter.

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.

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.
