For the Love of Bags !


Last Saturday I posted about bags and my love for them.
The last question was:
" How many bags do you own ? "
Well many of you took the time to share that information, which I now 
share with the rest of you.
To be honest, I was kind of surprised...
Meli22: 3 bags
Iris: Over 50
Carla: A little over 10
Jane: Too many
KP: 5 or 6 
Sheila: About 20
LyddieGal: 11 at sight and 20+ hidden in closets and drawers
Jan: Was going to count them and some of us did not know.
When I wrote the post, I had no clue how many bags I owned.
Well this morning I counted.
My estimate was somewhere around 30.
So I went to the chest (below) where I keep some of them and 
began to count.
And continued to count in the guest bedroom 
where now some of them are hung.
I felt a little ashamed.
I am not letting my H know this number.
No, no, no - it could be used against me!
I have a total of 51 bags including the one I am currently using.
My bags range from less than 5.00 USD items 
to others that cost hundreds of dollars.
The funny thing is that the cheap ones are the
ones I use the most.
The expensive ones I have not worn in over a year.
I just realized that...
which is one of the reasons I blog.
You find stuff about yourself that either others point
out or it is just revealed to you !

What pretty bags you have :).

Over the years I've learned that accessories are very important to an outfit. I was very lacking in that department. My view on bags was more of functional purposes. Now, I've come to view a bag as an essential part of a complete outfit.

Oh my you have a lot Lorena hehe. My bags are functional rather than to accessorise as I cant be bothered to keep taking stuff out of one and putting it another ..... I am oh so lazy lol xx

Bags are so addicting... and they are easy to forget about, especially when you go stuffing them inside one another to save space. Some bags I haven't carried in years, but you never know when you are going to want to carry an iridescent purple slouchy bag again...

You do have such great bags!

I rarely post photos of my bags, but I have at least 20, many of which never get used. I should do another cleanout of those...
