Bagvember Day 13 and it’s back to work after an absolutely exhaustipating Gorgeous Girls weekend in Byron Bay. I slept longer on Monday night than I did on the previous two nights put together. I am too old for this!
For Bagvember Day 13, my bag of choice is a Guess logo tote with white and tan trim, and the prettiest jade green satin lining. I located this handbag in the depths of my wardrobe. Definitely not a favourite, but too sweet to pass on. Another bargain from the now sadly closed and much lamented Cassandra’s Closet of Rozelle.
My outfit today is sensible chic. I was too tired to wear anything complicated. I think even tights would have been too much for me today! I’ve teamed these incredibly comfortable yet flattering black-and-beige printed pants from my newest favourite label Brown Sugar Australia with a Trenery black, white and beige striped tee. Every top I buy lately seems to have a “tail”. I luff them! I’m in desperate need of a haircut (scheduled for this Friday – yay!) so until then, I’m clipping back my fringe, and today’s clip is a tan leather bow by Seed Kids.
The shoes epitomise comfort – they’re ballet flats by Ziera, the shoe shop of choice for Nannas (and ladies who need a bit of shoe support!). Unfortunately, my invisible sock liners are, um, visible. So not chic, but oh so comfortable for my little shredded and blistered toes. Yet another sign that I’m too old to dance all night in dodgy clubs!
So, what is this Bagvember stuff all about?
Have you heard about Borne Naked handbag liners? I love to swap bags and I use mine all the time.

Amanda George from Borne Naked has a Handbag Blog, where she showcases everything handbags. She’s a little bit obsessed (I know the feeling well!).
Amanda has issued a challenge for November. Firstly, she’s nicknamed it Bagvember, and it’s all about changing handbags every day for the month of November. Amanda thinks she probably has at least 100 bags.
I’m going to accept the challenge and change my handbag every day. For reasons of practicality, I’m not committing to 30 handbags in 30 days, but I am committing to changing my handbag every day.
My darling 8 year old Boyo loved Frocktober and very proudly told everyone he met that his mama was doing Frocktober. He brainstormed a pile of ideas for what I could do in November, and Bagvember was one of his ideas. It’s fate really, isn’t it! He also came up with Lipstickvember and Bravember and Knickervember. Hmmmm …
