bag 38

This Ogio backpack was at the St. Vincent de Paul on Este just hanging around waiting to be rescued. It’s a great backpack with padded straps and exterior cupholders. Those are backpack musts for me – and I need two cupholders. This is in pristine condition. If you’re in touch with yourself the ESPN W will only encourage you. Yes, Eric Carle’s Very Busy Spider hangs in my office.

If you like to travel, or if you like to have a place for everything and everything in its place, this is your bag. This quilted nylon Travelon bag is a crossbody in the truest sense. It’s got more pockets pouches and secret compartments than most bags i’ve seen. Zipper pockets front and back are great for passports and tickets, especially the back pocket. I dare someone! Lift the flap and you have a mesh zipper pouch inside the front flap. Then the front section zips down on the sides so you can reach all your cards and do–dads. The main section also unzips to give you more room inside. It’s crazy. I thought about counting the storage options but the thought made me tired. I know it’s vintage because of the space on the strap for a flip phone. Don’t worry – it’s the perfect size for sanitizer or a small deck of cards. Or, as Jaiya suggests, candy.

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.

bag 23

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.

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.
