Bagvember Day 26 and it’s back to work for me and my lovely Mimco.
The bag du jour is one of my absolute favourites. She’s very pretty with multitudes of external pockets, silver hardware and amazing stitched details. Her handle is the perfect length and she doubles as the Tardis – you cannot believe the amount of stuff I can pack into her.
I was lucky enough to find her in a Recycled Vintage shop for $15. I know, right. Years later, I’m still in shock!
I’m wearing a pretty Alannah Hill hair slide, fabulous orange and turquoise structural earrings from my favourite Rozelle boutique Bella Emporio, a mustard cotton top from Mix by Coles, a Sussan purple snakeskin skinny belt, black Country Road cotton pants and my favourite Witchery petal sandals.
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 5 of my 7 Days of Selfies. Today I’m thankful for filters because I’m so tired, my under eye bags are a full set of matched luggage!
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 …
