The Things I Carry
The fabulous Terri at RAGS against the MACHINE did a recent post on a few of her bags and the contents of one of them. Her post inspired me and I thought I’d share what was inside my bag the other day for a quick trip to Macy’s in downtown Brooklyn. I am pretty finicky about what comes with me on a shopping trip, especially so when I have a child in tow, which that day was my 8 year-old son.
Anyone who’s been reading my blog for awhile must know how horribly addicted I am to what I consider the holy trinity of handbags—Hermès, Chanel, and Louis Vuitton, but I also like simple bags made, as this one was, by a talented and lovely friend. She made the wallet too, at the top, next to the bag.
-Goldfish for my son. When you are on the subway anything can happen, including the train stopping for no apparent reason for a long time, so I am a big believer in bringing snacks for kids.
-Metrocard holder, featuring a vintage 1958 subway poster promoting taking the BMT (Brooklyn-Manhattan Transit) to Coney Island.
-Phone; Pilot Precise V5 Rolling Ball pen in Extra Fine, the best pen ever made, I swear.
-Chanel Rouge Coco Shine in Bel-Ami. Eureka, I finally found a lipstick I love, it only took 20 years.
-Keys, featuring my reward cards from CVS, Rite-Aid, and C-Town, a grocery store.
Do you take the kitchen sink around with you in your bag or are you super pared down about what you carry, like me?
