Agent Bagsy to the rescue!!

Hello! Hello! I'm wearing red!


I have been a busy little Canadian beaver this past week, making videos mostly. Here's one of them. If you've seen it already on Instagram, just move along. Or watch it again! Hahaha! The music is The New Order by Aaron Kenny. 


Yes, we need more secret agents over 55, or even over 40. I'm happy to oblige, especially armed with a vintage handbag! There are no shots of me actually thwarting the "bad guys," but that's how Agent Bagsy rolls. I want to team up with Mr. Bean so we could be Bagsy Bean or Bean Bagsy.

It was a challenge filming this solo, acting all weirdly downtown and in the alley with my tripod, and filming at the coffee shop. Luckily, I found a spot to myself.

If there was whispering - stay away from her, she's a bit odd, isn't she - at least I didn't hear it. I had to order that expensive juice to lay claim to the location. It was a good investment. I got the footage.
And this is a photo shoot I did this past week as well. It's the outfit I wore to the Nordstrom campaign launch party just shy of a year ago. I had such fun that night, made especially memorable with my friends Suzanne, Patti, and Shelley who came to help celebrate. I wrote about it HERE.



I swapped out the fashion glasses I got from Nordstrom, which had pale pink lenses, with these sunglasses.

I was getting a Marilyn Monroe vibe, shots of her with her hair blowing at the beach. Never mind that MM's hair was platinum blonde and my hair is getting white on its own, or that she was voluptuous and could sing, act, dance, and pose to make us weak at the knees. My knees are just getting weak. Heh. But I can still dream - that never gets old. That's what Hollywood is all about, dreaming. Agent Bagsy agrees.


Shelley gave me that cotton robe. It fluttered wonderfully in the breeze. And it was cool-ish outside.


That next shot actually feels '60s. It's the sunglasses.


Next, putting myself into real perspective. I'm just a dot in relation to this humongous bridge support. I guess that statement would be more profound if that were a galaxy behind me and not just a bunch of concrete. Of course I am small compared to a bridge support. 


That's better. Although I had to boost my size for you to see me at all.

That's all from me this week. I'm going to link up to Patti's Visible Monday at Not Dead Yet Style and Catherine's #iwillwearwhatilike at Not Dressed as Lamb. Maybe see you there!!

Thanks for visiting! Dang, I'm out of cheese nippies. I knew I should have got more. But I still have some gherkins and Cheez Whiz light cheese spread and a couple of cartons of fine wine.

  1. Haha! I am sipping at a smallish carton of Chardonnay right now. Klassy, always keeping it klassy. You look fantastic, I remember that red dress and that fun evening. And your mini-movie is beyond a brilliant satire -- it's more like a teaser for your full length film. xox

    1. We klassy dames gotta stick together, Patti. Can I top you up? Another pickle perhaps? I was thrilled you came to that party - you were STUNNING in that horse dress from Suzanne. Yes, I'm waiting for my call from Hollywood. Guess I should charge my pay/go phone!

  2. You don't show the bad guys because, why would you when there's AGENT BAGSY and her BAGSY BAG to look at? You're the hero. That is all we need. Plus, that red dress. And that awesome robe. The hero and the red-clad Hollywood Megastar. They go hand in hand like Double-Oh-Seven and Pussy Galore. Or something. That sounds gross. So, just stick with my first version--BAGSY and MegaMarilyn. Such a great team.

    Ahem.

    It is altogether possible I have spent way too much time in front of this computer screen today. Time for me to break away. Where's AGENT BAGSY when I need her??? Pew! Pew!

    1. Pussy Galore? Hahaha!! Yes! I do like the idea of superheros with no villains, or villains who just drop over at the site of cool, high-style dames. Pew Pew!! Hahaha. xox

  3. Aren't you all that and a bag of chips, Ms. Bagsy?? Double-oh-no-you-did-so!! I love your adventurous spirit, your devil-may-care bagitude, and your fab red dress! So swanky, darling.

    1. Yeah, if you need bagitude, you know who to call. I was going to get barbeque chips but then I saw the Doritos and couldn't help myself. I justified eating them because I needed the prop, it was for work purposes. I keep telling myself that. xox

    1. It was tricky shooting a few parts. I think people in the highrises around that alley all know me by now, which makes me feel more at ease. Whew.

  5. Oh what a dress, what a body!! You have hips, a bum and a flat stomach. I envy you. Together with your lovely face the picture is stunning.
    Would have liked a close-up of the earrings.
    Good swap with the glasses. I like these.

    1. Forgot to say that the shoes are awesome too. The photo with the bridge support could win an award.

      Delete
    2. Thanks, Greetje. Yeah, I love that bridge photo too. I always eye that support when I go by. The earrings might be on the original party post. I don't remember. But anyway, it's a fun dress, a bit unforgiving, but fun. xox

    3. There isn't anything that needs forgiving.

    1. You put it well, Jazzy J. You make it timeless. I adore that bridge support. Finally I got to stand in front of it with my tripod. xox
