I need a new bag. I’m one of those girls who just never got into bags, I have the one and I use it everyday, every occasion until it falls apart. I’m the most impractical person you’ll ever meet, in every aspect of my life, except when it comes to my handbag. I want a no fuss, hold everything, goes with everything, timeless, inconspicuous carry companion.
As I was searching online for a new bag today, I got to thinking what I carry in it. So I’ve decided to do one of those typical ‘What’s In My Bag’ posts. Pardon my lack of originality.
Lately I’m all about bare necessities, which I guess to some are excessive indulgences but anyhow…the contents of my bag at the moment are as follows
-lipstick (I always seem to carry at least 3 – 5 with me at any given time)
-vintage compact mirror that Jesse gave me
-perfume (currently obsessed with YSL Cinema)
-face powder (Besame)
-yearly diary (I got this years from a bookshop down the street from my house, it’s so lovely!)
-Aesop hand cream (I used to work for Aesop and use it like I still do, it’s a $$$ habit)
-wallet (currently using a tapestry pouch that Charlotte gave me one day that had something unmentionable in it, and I seem to have stolen it and made use of it since my old wallet fell apart)
- Hip flask (for the broke times)
- Cigarettes (I know it’s a dirty habit but at least I do it in style with a tin)
-Matches (again, in styyyyyle)
- Flowers, or some type of hair accessory/scarf (sometimes I get annoyed at things I decided to stick on my head during the day and they get thrown in the bag only to be re-found at that perfect moment when I wish I had something to stick behind my ear)
- The bag itself, poor old little leather 50′s style darling. She’s been good to me but it’s time to move on to a more ‘together’ bag.
