Designer Purses: Love it or List it?

We are in the month of April. The month that I usually have this little talk with myself on all of the things that have collected dust in my closet since the last April. How many times did I wear it or use it?  Is it worth keeping at this point? Since I’m not a hoarder my closet gets purged twice a year. Spring and fall; are the times my closet gets turned upside down.

Usually I take the things I no longer want to the Goodwill and donate them. I’m sure I’ll do that with something, but I want to try something a little different this time. My eyes went straight to my purses. I love clutches and genuine designer purses. This lead me to creating an online closet with Poshmark. It’s an awesome place to find a new home for things you no longer love or want to keep. Poshmark.com is not a dumping ground for junk. Take those things to your nearest garbage.

I didn’t know what the heck I was doing, but I knew how to list items . As a start I decided to take only a few bags and give it a try. Soon as I started my Posmark account , I received 300 followers. Wow! I’m not sure why, but I really appreciated it. Some followers have shared my bags with others.  Currently I don’t have an opinion about Poshmark, because I’m still learning  about the experience. I’ve had Poshers invite me to Posh parties on a  specific day and time. Does anyone know what that’s all about?

This use to be my favorite bag. It is loud, bold and beautiful! I’m ready to part with her and make another ladies life bright. She’s so pretty and she looks great with monochrome type of clothing. That pop of color just does it!IMG_4119.jpg

Here is my chocolate brown Coach bag I’ve used with my fall wardrobes. It’s really dark, but the patent material kept her in the girlie zone for sure. IMG_4112.jpg

The signature Coach canvas leather is pretty popular. The hardware on this beauty is amazingly sturdy. I call this my bottomless pit bag. Your car can get lost it in. IMG_4120.JPG

Lastly, my least favorite bag out of the 4 is this crossbody. I bought it on a whim at the Coach store. One 4th of July I was attending a light show and I didn’t want to carry a big bag. Impulse buying is so bad. This is why it’s my least favorite . Yet it’s a nice bag and has more room then  some of it’s predecessors. She’ll be sure to make someone happy that hates to carry a bag around . Throw it across your body and go!IMG_4107.jpg

Cleaning out your closet is an essential to organization. Especially when your things are not getting used as often as they use too or haven’t been used at all. I chose these bags because I’ve had them the longer than my other bags . They haven’t been out with me in a year or more.  Besides I have a new love that has moved in. Louis Vuitton will take over my closet soon and she’s going to need all of the room she can get.

Is Wearing A Bold Lipstick A Big Deal?

When I was a teen, lipstick was a big deal. Not in a sense that if you didn’t have any you’d be ostracized . Yet, it was nice to be relatable. I had a few friends ( Including myself) that wore lipstick faithfully. It was on so much that if one of us ( rarely happened ) forgot to apply our lipstick we’d get asked, ” where is your lipstick?” Yes, it’s true.

I only wore Fashion Fair lipstick in high school . My mother introduced it to me and it’s been a love affair every sense . What I love most about Fashion Fair’s lipstick is I do not have to re apply it all day along. If you saw me with my lipstick out of my purse, it was because I was using the cute mirror.  I’d check  to see if  any lipstick or food particles left on my teeth after lunch . Often times I could eat lunch and my fashion fair Chocolate Raspberry lipstick would be still in place. How many of you remember that shade? Some may say that I’m too old  or dark for a pink or fuchsia lip but I beg to differ. That comment may have bothered me as a teen, but certainly not now. Being bold means to have confidence in myself.

Now I’ve found a new shade in the Fashion Fair line that I like as well.  Cherry Wine; will stay on my lips all day. It is a nice soft lipstick. It doesn’t leave my lips dry. Here’s a little secret. I don’t line my lips  with a liner when I wear Cherry Wine. Shut the front door!! What? Yes, you read it correctly. I take that sassy girl and line her then I apply a little on the bottom lip. Then, rub my lips together. Boom! Don’t be afraid to go bold on your lips. If your eyes aren’t too flashy then make up for it on the lips.  Heck I break all the rules. I’ll wear the lipstick without any other cosmetics and I’m out of the door!cherry wine_pp
