I recently shared what was inside my handbag, and Pauline from Reach Financial Independence wanted to know more about what bags I carried things in. Yesterday I showed you them stashed in my buffet, recently repainted, at the front door. Here’s what’s in there:
The current ‘everyday’
It carries work files easily, and was a Christmas gift from my parents, after they saw how much I was wearing my simialr blue bag to death!
The collection of Longchamp bags
The blue was a long serving ‘everyday’ – perhaps for 2 years? The black bag is better for smaller amount of stuff, so on weekends or evenings, where I’m not too fancy :p
“Walking around” bag
Great for markets or a longish walk where I need things, like when I walk to my hairdressers or into the city
The teal bag is the first time I’ve ever thought to call something ‘buttery’. The lining is the softest silk in a creamy colour. Sadly there’s some pen marks, but it still feels divine! Outside is a beautiful teal suede. I feel in lust/love with this bag at first site in Jan 2006 in the streets of Paris. As a lowly student, I’m not sure how I thought I could justify a 80 Euro bag, but I’m glad I did. (I think I attributed it to my ‘grandma birthday money’). And I’ve never looked back and thought ‘why’d I spend so much on that bag’. Every time I use it, I just adore it.
This little cutie was a whim buy at $10 in JFK as I was heading back to Australia. Nothing is that cheap in Australia, so I took a risk that it would match my dark grey evening gown, and huzzah, whilst it’s a different fabric, it tones pretty darn well!
I know some of my readers have no handbags, what about you? Could you do with more (!) or less? I think this is just enough for me!
