Sometimes I forget how much I love bags. I love the purpose a bag serves; not only to carry everything you need, but also to hide your smaller possessions from the outside world. I’m intrigued by what people carry in their bags and I know many of you are as well, which is why our What’s In His/Her Bag posts are a reader favorite.
In My Bag
This week on our Instagram feed, we saw tons of totes and satchels filled with printed pouches, beauty essentials and Karen Walker sunglasses. But as the temperatures begin to drop, we’re expecting bigger bags filled with all your winter accessories.
If you have followed our In My Bag series so far, you will realize I carry a variety of odd items around with me. I’m a Virgo, so I am fairly Type A and I really love planning.
If you follow us on Twitter (which you totally should, so follow!), then you that we have been prepping for New York Fashion week for the past few weeks. I feel so lucky to be able to do what I do for my job and to get to do it with people I truly enjoy working with, and obviously Fashion Week is one of the many perks.
While I add and remove contents from my bag constantly, one of the things I never remove is Band-Aids. Ever since I moved to NYC, I can’t leave the apartment without them. And if I do, it always ends up being on the day that I am breaking in new shoes and have to stop in a drug store to pick a box up.
I love to accessorize. Rings and bracelets are my favorite jewelery items and I always have something extra floating around in my bag to throw on when needed. This week I was playing with these new Plukka Attica and Ramses Rings and I just couldn’t get enough.
I am always drawn to stand-out rings that completely catch the eye. Plukka designed the Attica and Ramses rings which are total statement rings. I paired the I and II next to one another, which gives the look of a super tough/luxe knuckle ring. (more…)
Recently, we’ve realized that we’ve left a large void on PurseBlog. We mostly talk about bags themselves, but not everything that is carried inside. Of course the bag is incredibly important, but carrying all of our daily essentials is the reason why we are out buying bags in the first place – we need something to carry our belongings. Although most women carry the same types of objects on a daily basis, the objects themselves vary widely from woman to woman. That’s precisely the reason why our What’s In Her Bag category is so adored; everyone has a little voyeur in them and loves to see what other people choose for their day-to-day lives. Because of that, we’re launching a brand new kind of post.
The item In My Bag this week that I have been obsessed with is my La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Hand Cream. The weather has been wacky and recently changed from really cold and windy to mild and sunny. My hands have been dry and I could tell my skin was lacking moisture. I’ve been using this hand cream everyday this week and not only does it leave my hands incredibly soft, but it also has SPF for extra protection. (more…)
