Darlings, if you know anything at all about me, you are aware of the fact that leaving the house with nothing but pennies in my pocket would be a mortal sin in my book. After all, what is a girl to do without a half-dozen lip glosses to keep her credit cards and other essentials company while on the go? Nevertheless, I thought it would be a fun way to introduce all of you to…les contents of my handbag.
Since April 2010, I have been asked numerous times to participate in this peu activity; and finally I am – better late than never right, my loves? Let us start with le handbag itself.
My current carryall is mark’s I’m No Slouch Bag. It was love at first sight when I spotted this bag on mark’s website; thus when mark offered to send it to me, I was thrilled. Though the bag is tres glam Online, in person it is even more so. The black and bronze tones whirl and twirl amongst one another creating the perfect shimmery shade for fall – making it versatile enough to accompany you on an afternoon shopping excursion, or chic evening out with the girls; but it was the shape which truly reeled me in. The well-constructed folds create an avant-garde, origami-inspired aesthetic; while the relaxed style creates a sassy slouch that boho belle extraordinaire, Ms. Serena van der Woodsen herself, would highly approve of. Final word on le bag? J’adore! Let’s move on, shall we kitty cats?
♥Inside the Bag
As they say, “The handbag is an extension of the woman’s personality”; and the contents inside say quite a bit about who she is. These are the items that you will find in my handbag from day to day.
♥Oliver Peoples Chelsea Sunglasses: I was quite apprehensive about ordering these in the beginning, as the frames are so large; but they are now an obsession of mine – they provide instant glamour to any look, and make me feel as if I’m off to attend Woodstock!
♥Mossimo Wallet: Benjamin Franklin’s quote, “A place for everything, everything in its place” is the ideal way to describe this wallet – it is perfection.
♥White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor Perfume: You can’t help but to sparkle when wearing this scent!
♥mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss and Shine Tubes Hook Up Lip Gloss: The hook up connector allows you to connect two different shades, so you can carry multiple colors in a more compact fashion. I’m currently toting around Peek-A-Boo, Sweet Talk, Buttercream Brioche, and Sugared Almond. They smell yummy and look gorgeous on – plus they’re long-lasting!
♥16GB iPod nano: In the past, whenever I have left the house without this, I end up being stuck somewhere for hours on end with nothing to do; therefore, it now goes everywhere I do.
♥BlackBerry Curve 8900: One of my BFFs. And no, I’m not joking. I would be lost without my BB!
♥Les Liaisons Dangereuses: Though a heavy addition to le bag, I never leave home without a book – it is the perfect form of company to fall afternoons spent lazing about a park bench with a Pumpkin Spice Latte close by.
NOTE: I may have accidentally forgotten to include my beloved iPod and BlackBerry in the aforementioned picture; therefore, let's just pretend that they're both camera shy and leave it at that...agreed?
There you have it, lovers; the inside scoop on the contents of Café Fashionista’s handbag! I now challenge each and every one of you to allow us all a peek inside your handbag. After all, there is no better way to get to know a glamorous gal than by gazing into the depths of her purse!
