totosmom: good for you.... enjoying your handbags even if you are staying at home.
I'm trying to change handbags at least 3 times a week... just to see them in 'use'
and get some pleasure out of the collection. The upside of not going out is that it
doesn't matter how heavy the handbag is or if it goes with your outfit. :smile:

True. Like a little girl with her dolls, I've "dusted off" my vintage girls and lined them up on the couch for a few days. Moved them to the guest rooms for a change of scenery, ;) but it's a joy to see them out & about.

Hubby thinks I'm nuts! haha

Just remind him that enjoying your 'old friends' doesn't cost any money
or require any additional storage space. :smile: And if it makes you happy....
then his life is better.

I like the Layla tote also. I used my lemon yellow Layla last week.
"Used" in the sense I loaded it up and it sat on the dresser for me to admire. :smile:

What color is your Layla? Coral?

Oh, I have to say I forgot the name of my bag. I think it was called peach. Got it in 2018 during the summer sale.
Lemmon yellow sounds like a fun colour, too! Are you in lockdown, still?

That Apricot is a pretty color... soft, yet alive.
After months of preferring neutrals I'm now craving
more color. I go back and forth on handbag colors.

We are no longer in Lockdown (carefully phased re-opening).... but.... I'm staying close to
home and wearing a mask when ever I leave my apartment
(masks are required in my state).
Too many people are getting too casual about masks and
social distancing... either because they are tired of it all or
they don't think it can affect them. The problem is, every person
you come in contact with exposes you to every other person
they came in contact with. Sometimes people are infected and
don't have symptoms and sometimes they aren't 'sick' yet.
That other person can be careful, most of the time, but someone
they came in contact with, may not be. It's science and probability
and luck..... and I don't like it one bit! But I can only control what
I do, not other people.... even if our actions can affect one another.

So I change my handbags, for my amusement and to 'justify' why
I bought them. Most of the time these days they sit on the dresser.
So far, this year, I've 'used' over 50 handbags. Being home gives
me lots of time to switch out. :smile:

I just changed into a
Hot Pink Ostrich Embossed Dooney Zip Zip from a few years ago.
The carried a Bone Zip Zip yesterday (I did drive to a friends house to
pick something up). . The bone handbag looked
good with my outfit, which was bright colors, but sitting on the dresser...
the bone was drab. So, I'm back to more vivid handbag colors for a while.

July 4 is only a few days away.... time for more handbag sales ????
and to change into a red, white, or blue handbag. I'm leaning toward
a red handbag. Maybe I'll tie a blue and white scarf on the handle....
because it's a holiday! (And no, I don't dress for the holiday....
but I might as well color coordinate my handbag! :smile::smile::smile: Hopefully
that will satisfy the craving for another handbag when I see the
sales on red, white, and blue bags for July 4. I do not need any more
handbags.

I just splurged on a Florentine Micro Satchel in Natural. I am a black bag lover and tend to wear black but had been seeing this bag on YouTube and instagram and decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I did. It goes with anything. Also, it holds a lot more than I thought it would. I have several small satchels in samba, pebble grain, and Florentine which I love and will keep and I have owned several medium size but ended up giving them away because it was way too big. Since I am working from home, I don't have the need to carry as much in my bag so I have downsized and am loving it. I hope they release additional colors like navy, denim, or a cobalt and I hope they decide to do the micro size/style in other leather types like Samba or Pebbled Leather.

MissBL: enjoy your new Dooney Florentine treasure. She's a beauty.
QVC sometimes has more colors than Dooney or ILD. Just be sure to verify
the bag is the size you want.... sometimes QVC uses more 'generic' size names
that don't match Dooney names. Also, you will only rarely find great sale prices
on QVC.... but you can stalk a bag if they have the color you want and try to hit a sale.
