Day 20 of Bagvember and it’s an old favourite for me today. She’s a very pretty lady in elegant grey suede with silver edging and a pretty bow.
This very ladylike bag is by Mollini and is a luxurious grey suede, with elegant silver leather trim and a delicious bow. She’s positively festooned with pockets, and the straps are the perfect length to enable over the shoulder wearing as easily as over the arm.
Today I wore a vintage Country Road navy boucle jacket with a Country Road camel and red spliced top, with Sussan printed pants. I’m wearing my Sunset Moth necklace by Flights of Fancy (thanks B Being Cool!), teamed with my favourite Tiffany bangle and earrings. A combination of healing blisters and a very tired girl meant that I could only face very comfortable shoes today, so my Ziera ballet pumps got another run.
Oh, how I love this Country Road top. I’ve been grumbling about the so called Spring weather we’re having, but I must admit, I am enjoying wearing a few favourite pieces for a little longer.
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 …
