Bagvember Day 27 and I have a day off today for a follow up medical appointment that had to be made between 9 and 3pm. Yup, when I work. Luckily, I was able to take a day off work.
Today’s bag is a really lovely tan leather Miu Miu tote. Unfortunately, she’s lost a little of her logo badge over the year, so actually she’s a iu Miu. Ha! She’s had much love over the years from me. She is the perfect size and I love that I can alter the shape by using the straps and studs on the side of the bag. Definitely one of my favourites. It’s quite a long list!
She was purchased on an Italian holiday by a lovely lady I met at Rozelle Markets who was moving overseas and selling pretty much everything they owned. She still had the original purchase receipt in the pocket! I bought this bag, a vintage Missoni jumper, a tan leather aviator jacket purchased in Buenos Aires, a mint copy of Stephanie Alexander’s Cook’s Companion – a wedding present – and a Scooby Doo pillow pet.
I think the back story just makes me love this bag even more.
My outfit du jour is a Just Jeans cotton maxi dress with a tan Country Road leather woven belt and my favourite Wittner petal sandals. My lovely bracelet is from Luxe by Lulu.
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 6 of my 7 Days of Selfies. Today I’m thankful for a day off to enable me to make a medical appointment. I’m on my way to getting better, and nothing makes me more thankful than that.
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 …
