What's in your handbag? Pt. ii




Perhaps it's just that I'm nosy, but I always find it so interesting to see the things other people carry around with them on a daily basis. J Crew designer Marissa spilled the contents of her handbag in their recent newsletter. Her lovely grey leather bag is from their new Gemini collection, included in its contents: an Alexander McQueen skull-and-tassle keychain; a Comme des Garcons makeup pouch in bright, glossy red; Cutler and Gross aviator sunglasses; a camera to capture inspiration everywhere; a picture of her niece; a spiked bracelet from Eddie Borgo and of course, a trusty iPhone.

I was glad to see I'm not the only one who always carries around random costume jewellery! I also keep a constant supply of "emergency chocolate" - just in case...

So I have to ask - what random things do you carry around?

There is so much shame in my bag! Yes there is Trader Joe's chocolate, but also random tampons, receipts, and multiple lipsticks and hand sanitizers. Not too glam!

Robin said...

I love that handbag! Sad that they don't have that version on their site. Looking at her bag lets me know that I need to organize my bag. :)

Anait said...

Diana - I'm intrigued by the tiny little colourful boxes, what are they for?
DB - haha, so glad I'm not the only one with 'emergency chocolate' on hand!
Robin - hmmm, perhaps they'll add it later in the season?
C- completely love your list!
You never know when you might need an extra eyelash curler ;)

I find it fascinating to know what's in people's bags too~ it's like a snapshot into their personalities. I absolutely love this bag shape in an unexpected shade of gray, sort of tempted to buy one asap!

Umbrella, gloves, lip balm, tissues, oatmeal bar, small box of raisins, lipstick, phone, wipes, 2 nappies, pencil case with crayons and pencils, sweetie wrappers, small doll, tampon, handcream. I have a 2 year old, so most things are for her not me!

She has such a pretty bag! Hmm, I keep my handbags pretty minimal—just basic lipstick, phone, keys, wallet, and pen. I do have an interesting little pack in my car, though, that contains a room spray, lint roller, umbrella, 2 pins, wipes, and lotion.

Have a great day,
xoxo

Love this kind of photo. Great bag - love the colour!
In addition to many of the items in the photo, I usually carry around a measuring tape, a couple USB memory sticks, band-aids, sunglasses, and stamps.

Great post! I am always intriguied to find out what random things people carry in their handbags. Mine is always filled with important necessities such as bandaids, make up, diary, sunglasses, wallet and the latest magazine I am reading!

That's a great bag and I love that keychain!

Katriin said...

I have agree with Connie, that keychain is amazing, I want one :).
Everyday I struggle with the fact that my bag is so heavy, I consider leaving something home, but I cant, I always have to have a book with me and my filofax and my moleskine notebook for random inspiration. Oh and then I have 3 different tones of lipstick and bobbypins and there are many things lost in there that I have forgotten :)

I found a blog Get it girl Style, which makes a weekly post baggin with...so interesting...i dont even know why, but its interesting to get a peek into someones bag :)
