What’s in my Handbag?
A while back I was reading Colin Cowie Chic, where Mr. Cowie suggests you can tell a lot about a woman by the state of her handbag. In this context he mentioned that when he is hiring someone new and wants to know if they are tidy and organized or not he glances at their open handbag or the inside of their car. If it’s a hot mess, he passes. If things are neat and clean, he considers.
Since reading that, I have become diligent about cleaning out the inside of my handbag on a regular basis. It only takes a few minutes… it’s amazing how receipts, loose change, hair pins and other miscellaneous items tend to accumulate- making the whole situation not very chic.
I also couldn’t help but wonder if Mr. Cowie has a fascination with what ladies keep inside their handbag. Don’t we all wonder... just a little bit?
Well, here’s what I carry around on a regular basis:
Wallet- I have a brown faux snakeskin wallet by Marc Jacobs that is wonderful- easily organizes credit cards, cash, change and business cards.
Hand Sanitizer- in case I find myself in a situation where I can’t wash my hands(my worst nightmare).
Chanel pressed powder in beige- for those moments when I need to powder my nose.
A moleskin leather journal and pen- for when inspiration strikes!
Dior Addict Lip Gloss in Beige- a luxurious neutral color for lips.
Peppermint Altoids- so essential...
A travel size vial of my favorite perfume, right now it’s Stella Sheer
Oliver Peoples wayfarers
I would love to know... what do you keep in your handbag?
My handbag, pictured above, is a black leather Monserrat de Lucca Doctor’s bag that I have been using for almost two years... might be time for a new bag! I have my eye on the Louis Vuitton Neverfull... here's hoping :)
