The last time I did one of these "in my bag" posts, it was the middle of winter and I was using my Chanel 2.55 quite often. Now that it's summer I've reverted to my coated canvas Coach tote. This 3-year old tote is perfect for daily use: The material is low-maintenance, the size is large enough for everyday use as a work tote, and the compartments are practical (love the side pockets!). Canvas seems more summer-appropriate than leather somehow so I've been using this bag almost daily. So what do I have in it now?
- UBC alumni business card holder (filled with blog business cards)
- Daiso polka-dot makeup pouch
- Moleskine notebook and pen
- Ferragamo wallet
- iPod nano
- Cell phone
- Chanel sunglasses
The polka dot makeup pouch ($2 at Daiso) is just as satisfying a purchase for different reasons. I love the classic pattern and how it's the perfect size for what's stashed inside: Daiso blotting papers and rose-shaped mini mirror, hair elastics, bobby pins, Aveda hand lotion, Visine eyedrops, keys, Chanel Rouge Coco lipstick in 'Ruban Rose', and Burt's Bees pomegranate oil lip balm.
Your turn! What's in your bag these days?
