Have you seen inside my purse? I’m almost embarrassed to show you but my friend Chantel gave me one of those “hey, um, girlfriend, where’s the kitchen sink?” looks as she laughs. But then I see hers and it’s just as jammed packed!
I LOVE handbags. I mean really LOVE them. My friend Tracey (style maven over at the Urban Closet) and I both agree that we can get away with cheating on clothes but we both have a love for nice quality shoes and purses.
It’s Fashion Week so plenty of runway shows and rushing around in between homework and parties sandwiched between other events. My purse is BIG (See the pic? This is NOT staged) and it’s stuffed with my necessities to get through the day. As I head out the door in my big ass bag is my standard event night necessities, wallet, two phones, snacks, extra pair of flat shoes, Sbux card, chargers,camera, Moleskine journal, hand sanitizer, Tums Refreshers, Band-Aid Blister Stick, my Naked Juice, lipstick, hairspray, gum, etc.
Now, finding the sh!t I need in my purse is always fun. Who can relate? I’m running at night time it’s dark and my purse is deep.
Now from a busy momma to another, let me tell you what I’ve discovered. Read on hunnies, because I’m gonna give one away at the end of this post.
