Bagvember Day 8 and I’m all matchy matchy preppy – but in a good way! The bag du jour is a mustard yellow Marc Jacobs Stam, which I acquired through a clothes exchange event.
Inside today’s bag, I’m carrying a
pile of crap essential items in my Borne Naked medium liner, a Burberry makeup purse (still going strong 13 years later) and my beloved Marc by Marc Jacobs headphones. Sometimes they are the only way to get through a very busy day. Just put them on, pop on some music and go for it. Today’s tunes included the Foo Fighters, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Grinspoon, the Pixies, The Vampire Diaries soundtrack and Pearl Jam.
I’m wearing a blue Mimco clip which matchy matches my blue Leona Edmiston Pins. My bag matches my Next cardigan, a gift from Gorgeous Girl Melinda. My black Country Road slip matches my taffeta tartan skirt by Saba. Further preppiness is added by my ECCO loafers. At one stage today, I wondered if I resembled Velma from Scooby Doo!
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 …
