The details of what’s in a girl’s bag are always so interesting to me. A girl’s essentials say a lot about her!

Recently my bag got an upgrade and when I was moving things over into my new sidekick it got me thinking about the things I never leave home without. There are the obvious – phone, wallet, keys, but I also have a few things that I always keep in my purse.

Recently, I’ve become quite the fan of this trio of pouches. There are 3 little sizes that are perfect for holding a few lipsticks (different shades for different moods), my jewelry that I end up taking off and never remembering where I put it, and a little concealer and bronzer I take with me for grabbing drinks post-work.

So, now that I’m sharing.. the secret’s out. One of my biggest pet peeves is having really tangly hair (I know, it’s weird..) and so I keep a small brush or comb in my purse and never leave home without it. It drives me nuts – I actually have 3 small combs that I place in different purses so I don’t ever go without one.

A newer favorite is this purse-sized roller perfume with Henri Bendel’s new Suite 712 perfume. It’s so nice to not have to carry a big perfume around or one that I’m worried about spilling in my purse and leaking. Aside from that, I never leave home without my headphones! What are your purse essentials?

I absolutely love posts like this! Your Bendel bags are so so cute, definitely could use one or two:)


LOVE that phone case! Those little bags are perfect for keeping organized!

I love them! I’ve been using all 3 nonstop :)

Love these posts – I find “what’s in your bag” so interesting, too :)

I’ve been looking for a credit card holder so I can stop lugging my bulky wallet with me everywhere I go. That TB one is perfect.

I never leave home without my headphones, pony tail holder, lip balm and about 3 different lipsticks haha.

That’s exactly why I landed on the Tory Burch one, especially when I’m running around the city! Sounds like we have the same essentials :)

I feel like I’m super weird when it comes to my handbag contents. I literally only have my wallet, keys, phone and a lip gloss or too. I’m very, very simple. Most girls carry their whole life in their handbags!

Me too! I feel like some people were letdown by my answers haha, but it’s true.. less is more :)

The contents of my bag are almost identical to yours…..minus the brush and plus some gum to freshen after a coffee or a meal. Your new sidekick is beautiful Christine…a really good selection.

I know, I somehow never have gum or mints anymore! I need to get back on it :)
