Hi, first off……I am back! So well rested (and very well fed) and have lots to tell you. Back to business and ironing out all kinds of kinks while trying to get used to a new blog format. WordPress, while a great platform with its limitless possibilities is indeed a lot to learn. I (just giving you a heads up) may be switching back to blogger. Probably a first, I know. Call me a wimp or chicken but timing is everything and I simply do not have the time it takes to really learn it right now whereas with Blogger I am just so comfortable with it, its like going “home”. Not to say I will not make the switch permanently one day, which I probably will but don’t think the time is right now. So…..don’t be surprised if you see me back at blogger and it might even? mean my blog looking ugly for a day or two while? in transition (but rest assured I am on it like syrup on a pancake and soon enough things WILL look fabulous)!!!! All that said, I am going to see how today goes in trying to iron out some kinks and will make my decisions later today, to be continued…..

 

This post I had prepared last month but it sat in my draft box so figured it was a good day as any? to post it……….

Hi there, missed doing my “Which would you choose”…..Dec. and Christmas is staring to feel like a distant memory. Oh wait, my Christmas wreath is still up…not that distant:) Every season I “invest” in one or two really good handbags. I have bags that I have owned for over 12 and 14 years that I still, love and enjoy and use all the time.

To me handbags, like good coats, are great investments, at least the more classic ones are. I favor totes and top handles for everyday bags. I may or may not be in the market for one soon and I got busy looking and really admired a number of new beauties, so wondering if the handbag fairy stopped in to hand deliver a bag of your choice..which one would you choose? I look forward to hearing all about it…….

So many to love….I would love one of each! Be sure to use the convenient poll to vote but feel free to leave a comment, you know I love to hear from you! You can vote for TWO favorites. When spending a lot on a bag it is almost always a neutral so I know I get a lot of mileage out of it…how about you? Mind you these are more in keeping with later winter/early spring colors. Come spring I will definitely do one featuring beautiful springy colors! Hope you have a fabulous weekend, mine is going to be busy catching up on so much and squeezing in dinner tonight with good friends. No snow is always a good thing over here though I am hearing rumblings of more on Wed….enough is enough!
A reminder-
Tomorrow is the last day to enter my amazing Polyvore contest “Hanging in the Hamptons beach house” where TWO lucky winners are going to each win a $500 gift certificate to Safavieh Home. Don’t miss out! Click here for all details!

This is hard but I will say 9 10 and 15. If forced would go with 9 because my immediate reaction is “I want that bag”! All great choices, I too am a handbag nut but always spend my money wisely on things I know will stand the test of time. Hope you have an enjoyable weekend.

I am crazy over bags!!! CRAZY! So, I had lots of fun around here, Tina!

I am loving #3 and #14! They’re classic… just how I like!

One more thing, I just want to thank you for stopping by the other day… I always feel happy to read your comments, my friend.

Have a very FUN and HEALTHY weekend! 🙂

Hi Tina…beautiful bags….I would love to have so many of them…but I would choose #4..

Valerie Trahanovsky on

While I’m not a bag lady, I still have good taste in choosing #16. I love how different it is and strikingly handsome yet frilly.

As usual.. tough to narrow this down! Who doesn’t love a great bag and it’s fun to change them up seasonally. Like shoes, a special bag is an investment and a quality bag (and style) will hold up for years.

Hope things are getting resolved here Tina. I have zero tolerance for this sort of thing. Enjoy your weekend! xxL

Eliza Beth on

They are all great! I couldn’t choose this time, probably because I’d want one with each different outfit!

Have a great weekend, Tina:)

#’s 3 ,15, and 9 (in that order) for me!

I want them ALL. You have definitely frightened me away from wordpress. I can’t even get the Pinterest icon right on my blog. And your blog still doesn’t update on my blog roll. I hate the technical part of blogging! Step away from your computer now 🙂

Things That Inspire on

My sister buys fabulous bags all of the time, and I am lucky enough to get the when she tires of them (although I have not been handed down a bag in years – need to check on that!). So, I am thinking about getting a great bag and this post gives me a lot to think about! I tend to like totes with top handles also, with one big compartment (dividers inside make things too hard to find for me). I love the new LV hold everything bag in epi leather.

Sent you a message on some blog platform issues. I love the look of your new blog! The comment section is so vastly superior to blogger. One thing I miss is the topic of the blogger’s latest post in the blog roll. That is a way that I usually go to other blog posts of fellow bloggers – based on the subject of their blog post.

Sorry you are a having so many blog issues! It must be very stressful.

I love a great bag too and will be investing in a Tory Burch soon for summer! I chose number 14 so pretty with the color blocking. I agree with Blogger it’s so easy after using it for so long. I hope to get a new set up soon and and need to find someone good to help me out. I never thought about changing to WordPress.

Dear Tina…………..welcome home. I am so glad you had a great holiday, and I hope spring is on the way for you. Each new bulb that peeps up in the garden is like a little friend here.
Im sure you will get through your blog ‘hiccups’ with all your usual style and panache, I love everything you post anyway……I keep thinking maybe I could do it but then get so scared!!
I have to say ….Gucci for me………all the way :)) !!
Have a really happy weekend x

Amy on

I adore 1, for practicality and 9 for something fun and a little different. Love them all though and like you can never have too many bags. I am working on a beach house board to enter your contest, there are so many good ones though! Welcome home, look forward to hearing all about your trip.

1 if you don’t already have a gray leather bag…love it..kinda briefcase flair.
11 if you don’t already have a blue bag—love it.
13 just a classic bag with a twist…
Hope that helped…I am a Angela Frascone girl..weird bags..celluloid..
