Urban Expressions: What’s In My Bag

Hello, my name is Caity, and I am bag lady.

That statement is true on a number of levels. Not only do I carry at least two bags on a daily basis – Purse and gym bag – But I’m also a very serious collector. I would happily spend the rest of my life in basic head-to-toe black if I had access to all the handbags that I wanted.

I’m that girl.

And since my bag is essentially a home-away-from-home on a daily basis I thought I’d give you a peek inside.

What's In My Bag Urban Expressions Eco-Friendly Vegan Handbags San Francisco Fashion Blogger Street Style

Bag: White Janie Tote c/o Urban Expressions. I love giant totes like this that I can fill with all my daily essentials.

Calendar: Moleskin Planner. I’m old school and carry an oversized calendar with me everywhere. Addresses, to do lists, notes, etc. – This is my lifeline.

Accessories: There’s always a little black velvet jewelry bag in my purse filled with daily jewelry must haves like my Kamryn Dame bracelets & choker, signet ring, favorite Marrin Costello earrings, and classic pearls.

Make-Up: I usually have my Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage compact, Burt’s Bees pink grapefruit chapstick, and a Chanel lipgloss in case of an emergency!

Electronics: I’m an Android girl and could live without my Samsung Galaxy. It takes amazing pictures!

Tell me – Are YOU a bag lady too?
