Bag Lady

I have a thing for bags. Totes, weekenders, backpacks, duffels, purses. I love them all. It is my fundamental belief that you can never have too many. Sadly, this obsession doesn't co-exist well with my budget & effort to live more simply. Since I can't have all the bags that I'm coveting right now, I thought I could at least post them all here so that I can visit them in one place and pretend they are mine.

  1. Oh....you and me both!! I love the kidson bag and the Room Service Home bag. I have an addiction to bags and cute summer flip flops. I'm seeking counseling. I actually started selling them. I have some that are similar to the Ballard and J Crew bags. I'm honestly not trying to be pushy, but if you truly love bags like I do, you could earn a bunch of them for free. Let me know if you're interested.

  2. Well, LOL, this is a good idea! I like the Room Service (don't you love their catalog!) and Cath Kidston one's best, although that top Ballard one is nice and simple. It's easy to get carried away - they're all really nice!

  3. I so agree about the bags, gotta love them. I have several of the brown Vera Bradly pieces and when I traveled from Phoenix to home IN last fall I received a ton of comments! I went through your older posts today and had a great time! Thanks for blogging! Lori

  9. Hello Jen, Me too, I am a bag-a-freak-a-saurus! I love them! Check it out if you like at : keeksandbrie.com they have some cute bags!!! I posted a Pound cake recipe on my blog you might like. It is easy to make and yummy!
    I just read on Cath Kidston's site that they are closing their NY and LA stores what a bummer! I hope that you had a nice holiday weekend, pity that it is over!

  13. My budget won't allow me to have all that I would have either. I like the the Room Sevice ones, the Ballard ones, the Cath Kidston, oh heck, I'd have on of each. I do like the Land's End one because of the way the handles are attached. I pack full!

  15. Bags are my passion. My mom and sis are shoe women but not me! :)

    I have the top Ballard Design bag. It is wonderful for all sorts of things. Right now we use it for the pool.

    I also have some old Vera' but none of the new stuff. It looks great.

    Now I've got to check out Room Service.

    Cheers! LA

  16. I'm off to the beach next week and you've totally inspired me to run out and find a great bag...and it MUST have a big ole honkin' monogram. I have had it on my list for quite some time now to have my middle cushion of my sofa monogramed...so stay tuned!

    With your sewing talents Jen...you should make some "nest" bags. I'd love to road test one for you.

    Thanks for the big grin today... :)))

  18. We must both have a "bag" thing. I did a post about this exact thing. Go look at some of the ones I found. I wish I could have them all. I like the one you posted from Room Service. Gorgeous!
