bag 25 – claimed

Vera Bradley is back to give your back some relief as you haul all of your stuff. Multi pocket so you can stay organized. Perfect for Spring and collecting Easter treats. You know, bags make a great basket alternative. Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like bag 25.


bag 6

Let me get this over with quickly. I mentioned this year would be sacrificial = so to prepare, I got a bunch of bags together several months ago so I wouldn’t agonize about my choices in the beginning. When I pulled this out of the bag, I began to barter with myself, and *almost* took it back. Then I sighed, waited until a few minutes ago, snapped these pics, and here we are.

I got this bag when Target first started partnering with designers for special, short-run lines. This Isaac Mizrahi tote converts from a bowling-bag style when snapped to a large tote when unsnapped at the sides. Carry it with the handles or crossbody. I’ve put this bag in the giveaway for a few years and always rescued it. Time for someone else to enjoy it.

BTW this is a non-leather bag, but even after use, it’s in great shape. Email 50favbags@gmail.com and request bag 6.

bag 5 – claimed

I like big bags and I cannot lie. I also like the ikat pattern. While I really like this bag, it’s available to a new home. Snaps on sides give it a smaller profile. Perfect for daily life or vacation. Vegan trim. Email 50favbags@gmail.com if you like this one.

Day 3 a day late

IMG_0347This Holding Horses bag from Anthropologie got me through a long, busy day. I took the photo early in the day, but fell asleep before posting. Clothes Mentor is my next level up from the thrift store in terms of price point. You can find FABULOUS bags in there. If you’re not familiar with CLohtes Mentor, it’s in the family of Once Upon a Child (kids resale) and Plato’s Closet (juniors resale). It’s great for clothes and shoes, too. I paid around $14-$18 for this baby.

Bag 36 Рtaken 

I bought this tan vegan cross body tote by ana (JC Penny brand) for my daughter, Nia. Since she left it here, I’m going to assume she doesn’t want it. You might, though, since it has a long strap, two handles, and lots of pockets and pouches. Snap closure  It’s lightweight and great for someone with lots to carry. Email me at 50 fav bags@gmail.com if you’re interested.

Still available: Bag 1, Bag 5, Bag 8, Bag 11, Bag 13, Bag 33, Bag 34, Bag 35. These are headed to Dress for Success if not claimed. Peace.

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 31 – taken


Here’s a Fossil tote that comes with a wristlet. This tote is small yet spacious. If you like totes, but they overwhelm you, this may be for you. Plenty of space inside, made covered cotton with leather trim. That means you can wipe it down and it will still look great. The dots are dark blue with yellow accents. I’ll post pics of the wristlet in a bit, but want to post before the day is done. Bring that pop of color to your life – great for a rainy Spring day. Got this one back in the day at my used-to-be-favorite Goodwill in Mt. Washington. ¬†Email me at 50favbags@gmail.com if you like this Fossil.

You guessed it, my models ignored me today.

UPDATE: can’t find the wristlet! Maybe i gave it to someone… NO CLUE
