Kimba Likes Borne Naked Bagvember : Day 17



Bagvember Day 17 was a very relaxed and cruisy kind of day, and featured the bag bargain of the century!

The bag du jour is a vintage black leather shoulder bag, with bold gold hardware, including a fabulous tassel.  The brand is Capacci Leather, but I haven’t been able to find anything about them online.   Anyone know anything about them?

I always try and find a few minutes before or after my hairdresser appointment to visit Vinnnies on Glebe Point Road.  I’ve found some amazing treasure there, from fabulous Denby crockery to mint condition Rockport loafers to a brand new Country Road nightie.

But I think my pick of the bargains has to be this lovely little bag, which set me back $3.  I’ve paid more for a soda.



The Welshman had to go to the office today for a brief visit, so I took the opportunity to knock off a few Xmas presents at the shopping centre next door.  Three little Kiwi nieces, three Barbie dolls.  Sorted!

I still have my Barbies and all of their little accessories, so I hope the girls enjoy their new Barbies as much as I loved mine.


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 …
