Handbag Mavens... Can You Believe it's 2020?

[ Edited ]

@1Professor @hicindy2  @handygal  @EdithEllenLily  @MsLomo  @Skyblue  @Serendipity  @Boehm Collector  @birdmama @JaxsMom @blingqueen023 and all...

 

It seems rather unbelievable to me to see 2020... I remember when everyone was talking about Y2K... 

 

No big juicy new thread to start out the year, but wanted to wish all the handbag aficionados a Happy New Year... 

 

Know some of you have been curious about my Christmas acquisitions, so here you go...

 

I picked up this hieroglyph bag from ShopHQ... Some of you will remember I've had my eye on it for some time and they finally put it on a good sale, so I bit... This one isn't for everybody, but I liked it a lot and it's very appealing in person... I opted for it in pewter (also came in black and in bronze), which was my original choice. I generally find our first impression leads us astray least often... This bag will probably not see much action, but is one I wanted to 'collect'... By Sharif...

Some of you will remember the Kors bag in burnt orange... Unwrapped and gorgeous!

Try as I might, I can't find a picture of the next bag... An Alvero Martini larger satchel... I've long coveted something from his line other than the clutch I've had for years and while the satchel I got wouldn't have been a top choice, it was marked down so incredibly I couldn't resist... A larger satchel with a natural color coated linen body. The trim is in the usual Martini map print, but that's all for the map motif... Still, a very distinctive looking bag at an unreasonably low price that will be wonderful for spring and summer use...

 

Now, as for the last new bag, I suspect I will be able to find a picture of it, so will post again when I do...

 

Fond wishes to all for a wonderful 2020...

 

Carry on...

@stevieb 

Enjoy your bags. You have superb taste in handbags, but that is something we all knew. I like that one from ShopHQ. I purchase a lot of things from them as you know, they have great sales.

Happy New Year--Kiddo.

@stevieb Happy New Year, fellow handbag friend!! Woman Happy

 

So we finally know about your Christmas handbags and very good to know that they are winners!! I was so surprised with the new thread tonight (well, this morning at this point...Woman Wink). No good lookin' guys or songs though, hmmm. So, I will send you a song in honor of your first handbag, which is my favorite. I am remembering when you posted it and how I admired it, too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv6tuzHUuuk

 

Looking forward to another fun year full of handbags, friendship and sharing more and more and more handbags!! (Did I say moreWoman Very Happy)

 

P.S. Very relieved that you found a burnt orange satchel! I know it's not the one that got away, but I have to say it's pretty nice and I love the Kors leather. 

 

P.P.S. I agree about those first instincts...listen to them and remember!

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!!!!
