WIW Queen Bee & more fun & quirky bags

Random assortment of more outfits showing my love of quirky bags.

So #3 is an old Ralph Lauren "doctor's bag" I found at TJ Maxx. I used it instead of my black studded satchel in #4 (http://goldenpig.lookfab.com/p.....-casual-x2) because I was trying to not repeat bags, but it didn't really feel so "me" as it was so plain. I didn't end up purging it as people suggested. But adding a fun Kate Spade fuzzy bumblebee bag charm gave it a second life! Did the matchy matchy with a bee bracelet and bee charm to match the black and yellow skirt, and chevron stripe skirt, necklace and shoe straps. I have a few more keychains that I bought (fuzzy ladybug, ice cream, dalmatian) that would allow me to have fun with matchy matchy without getting matching bags for everything (because um, I do have a little problem with that!). I'm realizing that this purse fits more with my matchy matchy girly girly Kate Spade persona and the black studded Michael Kors satchel works with my slightly edgier side. The keychain charms just wouldn't work as well with the slouchy studded satchel. Win win!

Wore my Kate Spade orange slice bag in #5 the day I sent my orange Hermes bag to its new owner. I really felt good in this outfit. It felt so much more me--easygoing casual MOTG with a dose of fun. My orange slice bag always makes me smile!

And another casual kid schlepping outfit in #7. Pulling out another old Paul Frank cat bag. Also with the Tokidoki tote to match the Tokidoki T shirt. Yes, I love cutesy cartoon characters. I even have a Paul Frank Hello Kitty one that I'd love to resurrect someday if I can get away with it. There was a post in another fashion group I belong to for women doctors and someone said that no one should wear cartoon characters outside of the house. Oops! Rules, schmules. I posted my Star Wars outfits (http://goldenpig.lookfab.com/p.....n-phasma-b) and other people posted their cartoon characters outfits and even the OP had to join in the fun and post a cartoon outfit too. Never say never! Life's too short not to have some fun with fashion!

    Super, super cute. 

    Life IS too short to not have fun with fashion. You show us how to have fun each time you post your outfits. You have an extremely playful style. 

    How do you store your bags, Natalie? And how many other forums do you belong to?

    I bet you bring joy to all those who get to see you on any given day! I know there are 2 women (and one man!) on my commute to work, that I look forward to seeing every day, because they dress in such fab ways. I would hope that on some of my better days, I might do the same for someone else.

    I would be interested in hearing how you store your bags too. Because I'm more the unadorned black bag type, I love seeing all your more creative choices. It makes me want to branch out. The orange slice bag is really fun and looks great!

    Your post made me lol. I love the grownup looks you exclude but the playful whimsical nature of your bags. Such a lovely combination. I love all of your bars. Thanks for sharing.

    You have the BEST bag collection. (I adore #6 -- summer fun fabulous!) Your creative outfits always make me smile.

    Thanks everyone! Glad you like the fun bags. I guess I'm never going to "grow up" completely!

    I'm in the middle of re-organizing my closet so I'll take some pics of the handbags when I'm done!

    Angie, I belong to a couple of mommy forums although I don't post very often there. There's a couple of offshoot Facebook groups from those larger forums, which I read on my Facebook feed. One of those is a group of about 15 moms who I've gotten to know pretty well online and we're planning a meetup this summer! Another is a group for women doctors interested in fashion. I've only posted there a couple of times--I'm mostly a lurker there. I consider this my home group!
