I love to see these kinds of post, whether it’s in video- or written form. Therefore I’ve also been dying to show you all what I carry around in my bag everywhere I go, especially now that I have a bag to show.
My favorite bag at the moment is my Louis Vuitton Speedy 25 in the Damier Ebene Canvas. I’d been wanting a handbag for a long time (by that I mean several years). I’ve usually just carried my stuff in bag packs or my huge shoulder bag from Day. So I really wanted something I could bring around town, that was big enough to fit all my essentials but not big enough for me to fill it with a ton of shit.
I’ve been eyeing up a few different bags before I got this one (this is my first designer handbag purchase as well). I’d have my eyes on a bag from LeoWulf at first, then one from Ralph Laurent, then a Phillip Lim(which I still love) and one from Alexander Wang. And of cause the expensive ones from Prada, YSL, Valentino, Chanel and LV.
So I’ve been scanning the internet for good pre-loved bags for a while. At the same time I was also trying to figure out what bag I wanted. I ended on the Speedy. I don’t think I have to say why, it is a gorgeous bag.I’d visited the LV store in Copenhagen to compare the Speedy 25 and 30 deciding that 25 was the size for me. I got this one pre-loved from Trendsales.
In my bag I always keep my wallet, my calendar and my make-up bag. I usually also keep the shoulder strap for the bag and a pack of gum. Then I of cause bring my phone, keys and some kind of head set with me at all times. This all easily fits in my bag although I have to pack it right at times.
My wallet is from Lloyd and just holds all my cards and on rare occasions cash. It’s big enough for me to put my phone in. So I sometimes bring only that if I don’t feel like carrying a bag.
My beloved calendar is also from LV. It’s the MM size (similar to the Filofax personal) in the monogram canvas print. This is also an item I bought pre-loved. I got it last Christmas and have loved it ever since. I like to have my plans written down somewhere and I never really liked the way the calendar system that’s on my phone works. So this was the solution.
The make-up bag
I call it a make-up bag but really it holds like essentials and minimal make-up. In it I keep a little mirror I got from The Body Shop years back. Recently I’ve kept a pack of tissues because I’ve been fighting a cold. I have a nail file with motives from Italy on it. I keep a hand cream from L’Occitane, the one I have at the moment is the Amande Delicious Hands (it smells amazing!). I have a hand sanitizer in here as well because you never know. Not that I really think much about the germs I meet in my daily life… Lastly I keep a lip balm. The one I have at the moment is the Decubal Basic Lips and Spots balm. I like it because it comes in a big tube and it doesn’t break me out.
If I’m wearing lipstick I’ll usually have the lipstick I’m wearing in here as well. I’ll also keep some powder in there if I’m going out. Yet I rarely ever touch up during a night out, simply because I forget…
Hope you like this little snoop into my handbag. What do you keep in your handbag?
