What’s in My Bag :: Spring 2012

by Samantha ~ May 17th, 2012. Filed under: miscellaneous magic.

I’ve always loved the What’s In Your Bag meme. There’s always something so personal and mysterious about the contents of someone’s purse. I’ve scaled back quite a bit from what I used to haul around, but still have plenty in there.

Currently stuffed inside my Marc Jacobs Hillier Hobo is ::

All Saints Wallet (from a few seasons back)
Currently Reading :: Neverwhere
Moleskin Notebook (with a Charmaine Olivia sticker!)
Whatever sunglasses I’m wearing – today was my Ralph Laurens
Spirit Board encased iPhone
MAC Studio Fix pressed powder
MAC lip glass in an unknown color – it’s long since rubbed off the label
MAC lip pencil in Buerre
$1.81 in loose change
House & Car (brand new today!!) keys on my awesome TCB keychain from Graceland
Mystifying Mints
Travel Sized Aveeno Hand Lotion
Blinky bike light


And, embarrassingly, this was what was in addition to those items in my bag before cleaning it out a few days ago ::

$3.01 in loose change
3 hair pins
2 Abita Strawberry bottle caps
Pile of crumpled receipts, paycheck stubs, business cards, FedEx slips, 2 bus passes
MAC lipsticks in Hot Gossip & Runway Red
2 Lipliners in red & Beurre
Sephora Nectar Shine lip gloss
One pair of footie socks – I never know what to do with these after trying on shoes in a shop. I feel guilty giving the clerk used socks to deal with, so I always mush them into my purse.
One bar rag that I forgot to take off my belt when leaving work one night.
Oversized ring
iPhone charger
Cardigan that for some reason smelled like lunch meat (currently in washing machine)

More often than not, the latter is typically what’s inside my purse.

What do you never leave the house without?

    In my bag (a brown & green diaper bag) that we’ll call a “cargo” bag- a Nikon L-120 in hot rod red; a Canon 10D; batteries for both; day planner; address book; business cards; checkbook wallet; Tinkerbell everything else wallet; 6 lighters; faux alligator cigarette case filled; two fountain pens; three lip balms in red, blush, & clear; Burt’s Bees hand ointment; tiny white Tiger Balm tin for headaches; and wallet of digital cards for the cameras :)

    I can’t leave home without my Burt’s Bees lip balm. Currently in my bag:
    Hobo wallet
    iPhone with KSNY case
    lip balm
    Urban Decay ultra glide gloss in Deep and 24/7 eye pencil in Rockstar
    Book- Devil’s Knot
    Journal and Jameson whiskey pen
    Orange glitter D20
    Canadian penny
    Kashi granola bar
    Home depot receipt
    3 o.b. tampons from Switzerland
    And yes, I too cram the try-on footies in my bag. They really need some sort of disposal system for those things.

    Oops- and one pair Tiffany sunglasses in Gucci case, one pair D&G glasses in D&G case.

    Emma – RIGHT?! I tried on a pair of on sale Frye boots the other day & had no idea what to do with them after. How do you just hand some poor sales girl used nylons?

    Michelle – I used to carry around SO many cameras, too! I’d usually have a Holga, Diana F+, & an Instax in my bag. Thank you, Instagram, for lightening my load!
