What's In Your Make-Up Bag?

This bag goes into every bag I carry. It is a super cute bag with a wonderful old school zipper and vintage fabric. It is one of those bags I wish I had made.

Enough about my make-up bag; onto what's inside: bobby pins, Clinque mascara, MAC lip glass- standing ovation, Nivea cream, Kiehl's comb, Hello Kitty Bandaids, hair elastics, Kiehl's Lip Balm #1, Origins Peace of Mind, MAC pressed powder, Grandma's rosary beads and sewing kit.

Paisley Purse

This is one of my favorite Lady's Pride bags. The colors are perfection. It also came with the matching make-up case that I am currently using as my wallet.

Western Flowers

This bag was purchased in Houston during one of my very few escapes from the long hours of production work for the Super Bowl Pre-Game Show in 2004. It was a great find. It help me fit in with the Texan culture.

Hearts & Flowers

When I use this bag, I think about Joan Armatrading's song "Hearts and Flowers." I want to thank you for the hearts and flowers.

What a Find!

Some people have all the luck...Look at what one of the Williamsburg Gays got on Bedford Avenue yesterday.

Do you think he would give me the hat case (round suitcase)? Or will he use one to make an awesome dog bed for Bella?

Desire Dior

This is what I am currently searching for on Ebay. I would love a big vintage Dior clutch. Ideally it would be brown or burgundy but I would settle for navy blue.

Overnight Makeup Bag

It's vintage and an ebay find!

Ebay Bargin

I paid like $10 plus shipping for this bag. I never looked at the dimensions of it. I just like the tapestry in the middle. I was going through some type of obsession. I fell in love with the bag when it arrived. I receive compliments all the time from so many people.

A Bag for Beer, Burgers & Bowling

Well, the bowling didn't happen last night because the wait was too long.  However, there was beer and burgers to go with the silver lady's pride circa 1970s.

I HEART my accountant

Yup, it is laundry day.

Yesterday I was chatting with Ron, my accountant, about bags.  He was amazed at how sturdy the mexican plastic shopping bags are.  There were the bags we used to bring him the audit binders.  He then transferred them to LL Beam Boat & Tote bags to carry to the audit.
I HEART Ron because of this and all the other conversations we have had.

Animal Magnetism

Feeling a little frisky today with my Adrienne Vittadini Bamboo handles, faux snake skin sides and faux leopard skin.  Today was a sunny day so I broke out the big sunglasses.

Vintage Blue Shiny Tote

Isn't it perfect for a rainy day? 

This is recent ebay purchase was to go with my new fancy Michael Kors (Oh, I love Project Runway) dress.  However the color was a little off and decided I would prefer a more eveningish bag.  

I love the color.

Muji Tote Bag

Today's bag is the black Muji tote bag I purchased at the grand opening of the first Muji store in the States.  It is a simple bag that I could use on the weekends and Fridays to carry the essentials but not much more.

This is the start of a simple project to document the bag selected from my large collection and the items carried that bag.
