I just wrote about having a Bag Of One’s Own, you know, like the Hermes Birkin or Kelly. Now I have one, the “Not Dead Yet Style” tote, courtesy of Cafe Press and brilliant artist Anne Bray. More details below on how you can get your own custom tote, and even win one!
Here’s a casual Spring look, not very trendy but colorful and cool enough to make me happy. The dark floral dress is thrifted from Molly Mutt, as is the skinny patent belt. The coral cardigan is from J.C. Penney – yes, I ventured back in there after a year’s absence and found a couple of keepers, like this MANGO piece.
I’ve worn my yellow bangle to the nubs, and I’m looking at Etsy for an additional one (I like these). The simple black pendant was thrifted for under $5; I think it’s vintage 70’s and I think I owned it before ☺. Floral sandals by Kenneth Cole complete the look.
|Cute look. Knees not ready for Prime Time! Must spa.|
|My own “It” bag, I has it.|
|Closer look at Anne’s fabulous artwork. It’s a nice canvas bag too; I used it on an overnight
trip and it’s perfectly sized.
I “designed” my own tote at Cafe Press. You just go to this page and upload the graphics you want. It’s so easy, and as you can see, the results are pretty fab. It’s a cool site for ordering custom tee shirts, statement sweatshirts, mugs and pajamas, too.
