It's time for the professors monthly homework assignment, whohoo! This time it's about telling about ones purses and bags. Since I think a purse is far to tiny to carry all my stuff I show you the most frequently used handbags.
Oh, I have very recently showed you this one. My newly bought handbag from Restyle. This handbag is used daily, both to work and weekends. I love it; its very practical and in a nice quality. Like all my handbags it's have a tendency to hide stuff for me. The vanishing bag that Johan calls them.
So the other bags I'm going to show are some of my vintage collection. These below are my auntiebags. They are stiff and sturdy. The black one can carry my wallet, phone and a lipstick, nothing more. It fits perfect to my black brass studded sandals from the 40's. I bought the brown one at my neighbours flea market for a bargain, I don't think I have used it.
This is my bamboo collection. The little one is the first vintage handbag I bought long ago. It's not in the best condition and the handles are broken. I haven't figured out a good way to mend them. The real bamboo bag was found in a suburb fleamarket in London, on the back there are large chinese letters. I use this one with my black 60's Suzy Wong dress.
And last; the Croco collection. The round one are very flat, cant carry much in this one either, requires lots of planning if I will use it. The open croco basket is a nice one to use, but not in crowds with pick pockets.
So that was all. I have other handbags that I havent taking photografs of and bags that I've tucked a long way in the wardrobe and never use, but I have problems to part with stuff. One thing I really need though is a practical and good looking backpack, I can use when bicycling or walking to my work.
I always have my two cellphones, purse and keys with me. Almost always a hairspray, a little umbrella, some makeup, a comb, hairpins or snood and a lot of receipts that prevents me to find the important stuff.
I have had a beautiful weekend in our cottage. One of the days we went to a aircraft festival with amazing airplanes. I will make a post of that later.
