Bagvember Day 23 and it is an errand day for me – vet appointment for the bunnies, physio and doctor’s appointments for me, so I only needed a little day bag.
The bag du jour is a little Witchery bucket bag with a truly fabulous tassel and the most gorgeous metallic leather – it’s like a silver bronze – with black trim and bold silver hardware. She’s an eBay find. A little casual for an evening bag, but a little small for a day bag. Really perfect for a day when you just need your wallet, phone, sunglasses and a lippy. If only I could magically morph her into a bigger bag, say, able to fit in a hairbrush, iPad and makeup purse as well.
Look, she even has a pretty bottom!
I’m participating in 7 Days of Selfies again with Alyce of Blossom Heart. This time, it has a Thankful theme – let’s be thankful for the little things! This is Day 2 of my 7 Days of Selfies, and I’m being deeply shallow as I’m thankful for a good hair day. I think the trick is combing your hair into place when it is wet, so it dries without a natural bouffant. Even the best gHD implement can’t combat that!
I had a specialist appointment today, and think I’m on the right path to overcoming an ongoing medical issue. I bought myself this warrior woman piece today to celebrate moving forward and kicking it! It is faux coral in red and gold. I am deeply sceptical when I read things like this but bear with me, it had a power and strength about it that drew me to it.
I purchased it from the absolutely gorgeous Bella Emporio, in Darling Street, Rozelle. It is a lovely little bowerbird of a boutique, which feels to me like it could be Marie Antoinette’s accessory cupboard.
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 …
