What’s in my bag

How you treat your purse is how you treat your man. I read that years ago and it’s always stuck with me. I think I do a pretty good job of taking care of my purses…. so, your welcome, David!

I had the same handbag all throughout law school and the first few years after. So…. FIVE years. It was a fake Hermes bag that I got because I genuinely loved the bag (I mean who doesn’t) – I saw it on gossip girl and told my roommate, Catherine, that I finally found a purse that I wanted! “It’s a HER-MEZE” I said. She died out laughing and said “It’s pronounced Air-May, and they are $10,000,” “Oh,” I said “well I guess I’ll never have one of those in my entire life.” So I bought a really great, and not THAT cheap knock off and took care of it for five years.

Now I enjoy rotating bags too much to stick with one for 5 years. I also think that by changing bags so often, you inevitably clean them out and get rid of all the receipts, trash, and that weird accumulation of particals/dirt/dust at the bottom. Y’all know what I’m talking about. I have 3 Dagne Dover purses and love their quality, structure, and colors! I’ve seen “what’s in my bag posts” and thought it would be fun to share what I keep in mine.

  1. Gum. I genuinely can’t smell well (on a scale of 1 to 10 my sense of smell is a 2). And while this works out a lot of times not being repulsed by dirty socks or sour milk, I also can’t really tell if I have bad breath. Weird, but true. So I always keep gum, the BIG package in my purse.
  2. Dramamine. Living in North Carolina and being close to family (emotionally, not geographically) has turned into more long road trips than I would like to count. I get car sick on the reg and discovered the power of dramamine when Gigi and I were in Italy. After a windy car ride in the mountains in a European sized car we got back to the hotel only to have someone greet us with “Come on! Y’all are late for the boat ride!” I tried dramamine for the first time then, had a fabulous time on that champagne boat cruise, and have never looked back. Dramamine, you’re a gem.
  3. Sunglasses. They protect your eyes, make you feel fabulous, and allow you to take an Instagram photo even if you don’t have on makeup. Now that’s a win win win
  4. My phone. Although, not right now because my phone died, permanently yesterday. They are sending me a new one today. So that’s why I haven’t been present on Snapchat (LC_Steele) Even after one day, I miss it! I needed to hear what everyone was saying about the Corinne vs. Taylor showdown last night!
  5. Chapstick and my Lipstick. Can’t live without it. I like the classic chapstick or blistix and my lip color is always “damned” by Nars.

One thought on “What’s in my bag

  1. Hi Lauren!
    Love that color on you!
    Could you please do a review on the Dagne Dover Tote? Would be great to hear from you about how it performs with a heavy laptop, files and lots of other work stuff!

    Thanks!
