Weeks 31-32 Challenge

23 Oct

After a brief hiatus it’s time to issue another challenge! This bi-weekly challenge is going to be to find a new black bag. I currently own a great Cynthia Rowley bag that I bought at Winners last year or the year before (I can’t remember):

Cynthia Rowley


But I must have been a little hard on it because the straps are starting to fray and look like they may snap any day now (the bag isn’t leather which may also explain this phenomenon):

Now in an ideal world I would be running out and purchasing something like this little baby by Michael Kors:

Michael Kors Jenna Large Tote, $464 CAD Bloomingdale's

Or this bag, also by Michael Kors:

Michael Kors Gia Ostrich-Embossed Leather Satchel, $805 CAD Zappos Couture


But unfortunately my cash reserves are not at “ideal” levels so I’m going to see what I can find for $40 or less. I have no great hopes of finding anything leather but I haven’t hit up any thrift/vintage stores in quite some time so you never know what I might come across!

Wish me luck!

    Aldo Aldo Aldo!!! They have awesome, non-leather bags, and their sale section I’d usually pretty decent. If you used $20 from the bank, too, you could also look at full price bags there. I have a bunch of bags from there, and they stand up to lots of wear and tear really well! Good luck!

      Thanks! I’m absolutely going to look there, I’ve also had some good luck with their bags in the past!
