Bagvember Day 5 and the handbag du jour is a lovely Oroton black leather handbag with silver hardware. She’s been around the traps a bit, but she’s still a lady. I forgot to pop in my Borne Naked medium liner today, which usually acts as Spanx for older handbags who’ve lost a bit of shape. It happens to most of us eventually!
This bag has the perfect length handles for carrying over your shoulder, or over your arm, and a nifty back pocket for carrying my iPhone and bus ticket.
Today, I’m still deep in the grips of Trousday. I loved Frocktober. Loved it a lot, but the appeal of wearing pants is still guiding my daily wardrobe selection! I’ve teamed my old man charcoal Country Road pants with a Mink Pink dotty top, Diva multicoloured collar necklace, Topshop studded hairpin and Dotti peach snakeskin ballet flats. High Street for the win!
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 …
