Day 21 and I’m busting out my bondage bag. No, that’s not really the name but she’s covered in black studded leather straps, so bondage bag it is!
See what I mean? This bag is a little bit rock chick, all trussed up in black studded leather straps. She has a mock croc top flap, and rolled leather handles, which are the perfect length, meaning they’re comfy over the shoulder or the arm. This beautifully soft leather bag was purchased from the sadly now defunct Cassandra’s Closet in Rozelle.
My outfit du jour is a very flattering Andiamo sleeveless black dress, thrifted for $5 from Rozelle Red Cross, worn with a fabulously theatrical Helix by Lisa Stack cape, swished at the Rozelle Red Cross Clothes Exchange Event. I’ve added Leona Edmiston navy leggings, worn with Leona Edmiston patent and suede studded ballet flats, and my signature piece of jewellery, the divinely pretty Faux Fuchsia Leo necklace from Red Phoenix Emporium. I’m also wearing my beautiful Tiffany’s bangle and my pave diamond heart studs, gifts from the Welshman. He is such a keeper! My Sussan BCNA fundraising beaded bracelet coordinates beautifully. My second day hair issues with my newly shorn fringe are being saved with my pretty silver leather Oroton hairbow.
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 …
