bag #44

IMG_8087

You’ve heard of those Target collaborations with designers, right? Early days it was Isaac Mizrahi, Proenza Schouler  and Liz Lange. Since they often don’t make plus sizes, i console myself with the bags, which are often fabulous. This one is from Paul and Joe. Ok i hadn’t heard of them either. I got this bag at Goodwill for my butterfly-loving oldest, but she is anti-purse and rejected it. The butterfly piece comes over the top and acts as a closure. There’s also a cool tassel zipper pull. Canvas with faux leather. I thought about keeping it just because but… email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like it.

Two days to go… the five bags (other than this one) that are still available say “still available” in the title. Last chance before they go to the thrift store! Taken. Thanks!

bag #27

It’s Monday, so here’s a bag I used to use for work. From Target, this is a tan Mossimo large tote with front and side pockets, zipper top with inside zipper pocket. Long handles fit over lots of shoulders. Non-leather AKA Vegan – that’s what you see on the bags these days in the store. Email 50favbags@gmail.com if you like.

TAKEN – thanks

Liberty of London for target bag

i put off wearing this purse for as long as i could. liberty of london for target, maybe 3 years ago – there were lots of clothes, kids stuff, none of which i can wear. but when i saw this bag i knew i could participate. i love using it in the spring and summer months and i have to force myself to give it a rest, because i don’t want to wear it out. it’s got side pockets, people, 3 interior pockets, and two, front and back, now – two more exterior pouches. and then, to cap it all off, it’s got a strap to make it a shoulder bag or cross body. it’s a well organized bag that makes me happy. it doesn’t get much better than that for an inanimate object. perfect for a day like today.

ps: i just checked, and i was right – this line is from March 2010. i’m just glad my memory is still accurate in at least one arena.

devi kroell for target bag from 2007

devi kroell for target. i love when the designers do target, but usually i can’t do the clothes because they don’t make plus sized. like big girls don’t want designer style! so, i accessorize.

i have really enjoyed this bag for the last 5+ years. it’s bigger than it looks, and has held up very well with its pleather self. it’s a great rainy day bag, dressy or casual.

it’s a keeper.
