Bagvember with Borne Naked | Week 4



Bagvember?  What’s all that about then?  The lovely Amanda from Borne Naked is fundraising for the Sydney branch of Dress for Success, an excellent charity aiding women by equipping them for the workplace with outfits, skills and confidence.

A selection of gorgeous bags have been donated and are being auctioned off over the four weeks of Bagvember, with all proceeds going directly to the Sydney branch of Dress for Success.

Click here to check out the goodies on offer and bid, bid, bid!

Other ways that you can participate in Bagvember and spread the word is snap a picture of your daily handbag to share on social media, tagging @bornenaked and #bagvember.

I’m challenging myself to share a different bag every day of the month.  Yes, my bag collection is as ridiculous as my frock collection, but please remember I am an op shopper of extreme awesomeness and quite possibly the only person in the world who has purchased a genuine leather jacket, Miu Miu leather tote, vintage Missoni knit, Veronika Maine blouse, Scooby Doo Pillow Pet and a mint condition copy of Stephanie Alexander’s The Cook’s Companion for $50 from Rozelle Markets.  I actually tried to give them more money but to no avail.
