That Old Trusty Bag

DSC06172

Now I’m going to tell you guys a little secret that might shock you fashionistas to the core.  I’m not a bag person.  There I said it!  I feel so much better.  Once you’ve recovered from the shock I’ll explain… go on… I’ll wait…

I love all aspects of fashion but, for some reason, bags never really were my thing.  If you want to talk about shoes, that’s a totally different story.  I mean, this blog is called Wandering in Heels after all.  Not Wandering with Louis.  I can see the appeal of carrying something beautiful with leather soft as butter but my bags get pretty used and abused!  Even my shoes seem to stay in better condition!

So I tend to have bags that stick with me for a long time.  The one shown here I’ve had for probably 10 years.  Currently, my two favorites are this beat up old Frye bag and a beat up old Coach cross body bag I found at the Goodwill.  They’re trusty, well constructed, and a few bumps and scratches give it character.  They just keep getting better with age.  Just like me!  I hope…

Lust List Gift Guide: Teen Edition

The holidays are quickly approaching!  I know it seems early to be thinking about gifts but I like to shop early so I get better more thoughtful gifts without spending a fortune (i.e. – no last minute gift cards).  Each week I’m putting together a list of items for different people in our lives.  This week I’ll start with the teen ladies.  This girl is a budding fashionista with bold taste all her own.  Here are a few ideas she will love!

Teen Gift Guide

1) Diane von Furstenburg Animal Print Ear Buds – $25

2) A spa day for a teen facial.  Teaching good skin care techniques at a young age is important, especially for teens when acne can become an issue and they start wearing makeup.  A facial at your local spa is a fun way to spend time together and is a great unique gift!

3) A fun statement necklace from Jeweliq.  Everything here (like this Emerald Fan Bib) is under $25!

4)  Lulu’s Drawstring Handbag – $44

5) My Nail Polish Diary – $42
