Bag Lady

I love handbags, who doesn’t? Sadly, they are often expensive purchases to make, so I end up having to save up for months in order to even dream of attaining a designer one (except when I score at the vintage shops!) But guess what I’ve figured out? You don’t have to have a big, fat, designer label stitched on the inside pocket to feel like you look good. Here are some really cute bags I found on Etsy.com (one of my most frequented online stores.) The great thing about Etsy is that all of the items are second-hand or handmade by the individual sellers so you are not only supporting independent designers, you are also contributing to the health of our environment by buying recycled products…You can’t go wrong there.

Fuzzy Wuzzy Wasn’t Fuzzy, Was He?

Ask anyone who knows me, I am a sucker for comfort. In the frigid winter months, I seek solace in the fact that I get to basically live in fleecy, wooly, cashmere heaven 24/7. My Nana used to knit me sweaters because we didn’t have enough money to buy new ones. She once made me a red sweater with Fred Flinstone on the front and Wilma on the back. It was my pride and joy from the age of 7 until at least 10 when I retired it to try to fit in with the cool kids. This would be the skater/Silverchair/Green Day stage. Man, I wish I still had that sweater!…

This fall, I’m going to look for hand-knit pieces before buying in stores because I find that there’s something magical about a piece of clothing made by someone else, especially a piece of clothing that keeps you protected from the harsh, cold weather. Heck, I might even take up knitting again and make my own fall must-haves.

Here are some knitwear finds from Etsy and a few designer knits that I will desperately try to find cheaper alternatives for because, hey…Let’s be real here, I don’t have a sponsor!…
