All About Handbags

Today I am sharing some of my handbag care and storage tips with you, along with a new giveawayWatch the video below for more info on how you could win this bag by Michael Kors.

The built-in shelves in my closet are the perfect place to store bags and clutches as well as cuffs and bangle bracelets. 

A couple of years ago, I started using dust covers to protect my bags. I also keep them stuffed with tissue so that they don't lose their shape. I am making smarter purchases now so I will be keeping my bags for several years, which means I want to take better care of them.

I store my better clutches in a drawer for easy viewing and to keep them free from dust.

This video shows how I organize what I carry in my bags to make switching them out so easy. You will also learn how to enter to win the bag I am giving away on the 4th of July!

Congratulations Pat Willoughby!
You are the winner of the Michael Kors handbag giveaway.

Thank you for joining us on this journey through midlife and beyond. The second fifty years are truly the best!

All words, styling, and creative direction are my own.
I no longer accept products in exchange for reviews.

Wear It Wednesday, Handbags

"Why do you change your handbag so often?"

Some form of this question is asked so often so I thought I would discuss handbags today on Wear It Wednesday.

My handbag is part of my outfit and not limited to utilitarian service. 

For evening or dressier events I always slip only the items I will need into a small clutch that complements what I am wearing.

Most of my bags are arranged in this built in shelf in my closet.

 Any bag that comes with a dust cover is stored inside it.

This red bag from Tahari via T.J.Maxx is one of my favorites but I never carry it if there is a chance of rain because it will spot. Taking care of my bags ensures that they will last for a long time. I keep most of them for years. 

Always store your bags stuffed with tissue paper so that they don't loose their shape. Keep all that tissue they wrap your clothes in when you shop to stuff your bags.

I don't carry a lot of things around with me. I keep small items such as dental floss, a small pair of scissors, a nail file, lip gloss, an ink pen and small note pad in a makeup bag. Business cards, lotion, keys, a small mirror, eyeglasses, my phone and a clutch style wallet are normally what you find in my bag.

This makes it easy to slip only what I need including the lip gloss color that complements what I am wearing into a smaller bag for the evening or switch to a different one for the day.

Thank you for joining me on this fun journey through midlife and beyond.
