I was recently inspired to do this after seeing a similar post on my cousin Lucie's blog (in French). She received a dare to show her purse and detail its content.
It's Coach. I've had it for about two years. M bought it for me during a business trip (I told you, he's amazing for buying me girly stuff like that. His skill is uncanny). It was apparently on sale, and a good deal for the price. I've never kept a purse for such a long time before, probably because I've never had one that was such good quality before. I'm going to use this one until it falls apart, but even though I like it my next one will probably be a little less subdued. I don't like too much bling or anything, but I like a good size, patent leather, lots of zippers, and a not-too-classic color (say like red or teal).
Pockets and inserts:
-Front insert #1: iPhone
-Front insert #2: Swiss card (the female equivalent of a Swiss Army knife), office security ID, Clean & Clear oil absorbing sheets, card with all my ob/gyn info and appointments.
-Back insert: Organic lip balm, cold sore remedy, two packs of Listerine breath strips, two hair elastics, pocket mirror, Cars Band-Aids, needle and thread (?), hoop earrings, euro coin, broken toy piece, key from my dad's house (which I forgot to give back the last time we were there, oops).
-Back pocket: pen, nail file, individually wrapped wipes from a restaurant, cheque book, Cars stickers, a home improvement store receipt, the plastic-covered imprint of LP's hand (a craft he made), the cessation of work form my doctor gave me (and I can't use), and some government form I forgot to file for my company.
Wallet: Guess, embossed patent leather. Another present from M.
Sunglasses: Ralph Lauren. My birthday present from the boys this year!
Plastic bib in a Ziploc bag
Small carton of organic raisins
Some notes and inspiration pictures from my last wedding flower gig
LP's health and immunization booklet, including his health care card, hospital ID, etc.
Nature Valley granola bar, all smushed up
Small tube of Vaseline unscented hand cream
Two containers of eye drops: one Visine and one saline solution for contact lenses
Tums antiacids (which I'm popping non-stop these days)
The receipt for my new (old) car!
What's in your purse, ladies?
