Bagvember Day 28 and it’s hump day. Sydney’s weather has gone psycho again – grey and cold and drizzly. Well, when I say cold, I mean it’s not warm!
The bag du jour is a biscuit leather Country Road sling bag. I bought this bag to celebrate my illness officially going into remission this year. Yeah baby!
Perfect for wearing across the body bandolier-style too.
Today’s outfit is a Portmans black silk dress worn with pink Leona Edmiston Pins leggings and patent and suede Leona Edmiston ballet flats. I’m wearing my signature piece, my Red Phoenix Emporium Faux Fuchsia Leo necklace, and a Mimco black straw headband.
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 7 of my 7 Days of Selfies. Today I’m thankful for the power of pink!
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 …
