I’m finally getting around to showing you what I got in my second Little Black Bag. I was really pleased with my choices for August’s bag. For my initial choice, I chose a handbag from the brand Miztique. It’s a really generous sized taupe bag with dark brown handles and gold hardware, perfect color for fall.
Since I chose two pairs of earrings in last month’s Little Black bag, I decided to steer clear of jewelry this month. Instead, I traded my other two bag items for a Case Mate iPhone case designed by Jessica Swift and an interesting set of nail wraps.
I can’t remember what the exact retail value of all of my total items was but I do know it was over $100. So basically I got everything half off! If you don’t know what Little Black Bag is, see my initial blog post where I describe how the monthly service works. If you’re interested in trying it out, you can sign up for Little Black Bag here.
So why did it take me so long to post about August’s Little Black Bag? We’ve got a new family member who is taking up all of my free time! Meet Teddy, our new puppy!
As of today, he’s only 13 weeks old and needs tons of attention and supervision. He’s a collie/lab mix from the local Humane Society. Even though he’s a handful, we’re enjoying every minute with him. I’m sure you’ll be seeing many more pictures of him in the coming weeks and months as he grows into a big boy.

OK, I couldn’t resist signing up for LBB…my 1st bag will include a large turquoise purse, a snake skin bangle (that was a trade), and an adorable pink headband (also a trade)…the trading was a bit confusing at first, and everyone wanted my items, so I’m pleased with my 1st purchase; saved $70. plus I got 10% off by liking them on FB…not too sure about the once a month thing…stay tuned…and thanks, I think 🙂
Cool! It’s a fun service to try. I agree, the trading is confusing at first. They don’t really give clear guidance for newbies. Once a month is a lot to me too. I really don’t need or want a new handbag once a month. I’m actually thinking of skipping September. Hope you like it!
