battered unexpected bag

A passage in Bookshop Memories by George Orwell:

There is a peculiar flavour about the battered unexpected books you pick up in that kind of collection: minor eighteenth-century poets, out-of-date gazeteers, odd volumes of forgotten novels, bound numbers of ladies’ magazines of the sixties. For casual reading — in your bath, for instance, or late at night when you are too tired to go to bed, or in the odd quarter of an hour before lunch — there is nothing to touch a back number of the Girl’s Own Paper.

I just got home half hour ago. Oh mann… it has been a long day for me today.
Anyway, today I carried my recently thrifted Coach Willis messenger/shoulder bag. Check out this gorgeous blogger sporting her Coach classic. Hers is new, mine is the ‘battered unexpected bags’.

  1. Beautiful!!!! I love that dress and silhouette on you.

    Surprisingly, I wore a black dress today as well, a collared version with some buttons.


a penny for your thoughts
