@BarbaraMonajem couldn't decide which #handbag; so she brought... #accessories #fashion #MFRWorg

Which handbag?
Handbag Monday

Bag # 1: The photo doesn’t do it justice (none of my photos do justice to their subjects). It’s cute and shiny and awesome and RED (my favorite color), and I never get a chance to use it. I can’t possibly carry everything I need, even to an evening party, in something so teensy. Nope, not this one.





Bag # 2: I bought this bag to take to a conference. It’s colorful and has sequins on one side, but it’s totally impractical. Put a few books or a kindle in it, and it becomes a lumpy sack. Also, it doesn’t match anything I own. Sigh. Maybe I could use it for my knitting?






Bag # 3 is a Vera Wang – totally out of my usual price range, but it has a snakeskin pattern (I love animal prints) and was reduced from $ 129 to $ 29, so I snapped it up--and I actually used it for a while. It didn’t match anything I wear, but so what? But all that metal (plus the books and/or Kindle) made it too heavy, so…nope. If anyone wants a partly-used Vera Wang, let me know.




Bag # 4: YES! A Baggallini. It’s understated (the leopard print pattern is very faint), durable and practical, has lots of pockets, and is reasonably priced if you wait for a sale. I love my Baggallini!








Barbara, my MIL loves her Baggallini, too. I've found them very reasonably priced at Marshalls. 

Years ago, Andromeda Gibbons lost her belief in both love and magic, and molded herself into a perfect—but perfectly unhappy—lady. Now, when she overhears her haughty fiancé plotting treason, she flees to Lord Fen, the one man she can trust. But taking refuge with Fen proves to mean far more than getting help. 
Can Andromeda learn to believe in love, magic, 
and the real Andromeda once again?

Barbara, it's easy to put up with your bags. Maybe they are not practical ... but the sure are pretty :)

And ditto for your cover and blurb on Andromeda !!

Barbara Monajem said...

Thank you, Florence. :)

Hi, Barbara! I know those handbag indecisions too well. It didn't help that I bought two more Friday night when Handsome was out of town. I'll probably have to let a couple go. Sigh.

Thanks for being with me today, Barbara. oxox

Oops. You buy handbags the way I buy socks, Vicki. :)

Angela Adams said...

That first red bag is definitely a sassy, out-on-the-town bag!

Barbara Monajem said...

Yeah, Angela, it makes me wish I were a sassy sort of person. I'm closer to an old hippie, to tell the truth, LOL. I'm sure that poor bag is yearning for a new owner, but I'm not quite ready to give it up. ;)

Melissa Keir said...

I agree about the bags. That red one was so pretty but I would worry that it would get ruined taking it anywhere and the same with the sequins one. I do love the cover of your book!

Barbara Monajem said...

Thanks, Melissa! Needless to say I'm very happy with it, especially all that lovely RED.
