Ring-a-Ding-Ding. Kaching!

I was a bag lady this weekend. Oh, yes! Not the glamourous fashionable type, but the type of bag lady with mad fly-away hair, a red face and a general stressed out look. Bags on my shoulders, bags on my arms. But it's all good! Some of those bags were from H&M. Some were stuffed with my dirty washing. Not chic!

I couldn't believe it when I saw this model at China Fashion Week Spring/ Summer 2011. Now, she is the ultimate bag lady. Glamourous, in control, bags swinging left, right and centre. Not a hair out of place. I now know where to put my bags when I go shopping. No free arms? It's okay, just put them on your hair. If you have knotty hair like mine, the knots will just keep them in. Sorted! I will be the ultimate glamourous bag lady.

Just a bit of fun on this windy Monday night! I was out gallivanting this weekend. (Gallivanting that included drinking cocktails, wine & vodka, not going to bed until 6am, then getting up at 10am, having fun times with friends, shopping. As my brother said to me: 'You are back to your socialite ways'. I wouldn't go that far, but it's nice having a bit of freedom and money again!). So, what I am trying to say in a very long winded way, sorry for the lack of posts.

Were you a bag lady this weekend? As in, did you go shopping? Hope ye all had a fantastic weekend?!

Wow. That's definitely a different way of doing your shopping- but i wonder, wouldn't you have to make sure each bag was perfectly balanced, or you'd fall over? Just a small flaw there...no shopping for me, been sleeping. :)

this is so creative and in a way critical to the whole industry

Sarah said...

If only bag ladies were that glamourous!

Gallivanting is such a great word. It goes hand in hand with 'divilment' I think.

VersaStyle said...
