What’s in my bag?

Continuing on to yesterday’s post about bags… I’ve decided to show you the contents of what’s in my bag! Actually, Lotus requested that I do this post a really long time ago and I was total slacker and didn’t do it until now. Apologies for how long it took me!


The bag: Louis Vuitton Neverfull MM – I know a lot of people don’t like the Louis Vuitton monogram because it’s like a walking advertisement for the brand, however it doesn’t bother me. Even if the bag didn’t have LV all over it, I would totally still buy it as it’s been on the best bags I’ve purchased. I love how easy it is to carry (never slips off my shoulders like some bags) and it can carry a whole lot! I sometimes even stick my work laptop in there (and that is a very large laptop!)

Counter clockwise from top left:

  • Marc by Marc Jacobs sunnies – these are my cheapies that I just stash in my bag and I don’t care if they get scratched. The majority of sunnies I own are Chanel and those get kept in their case.
  • Gucci cosmetics case – full of lipglosses, lip balm, anti-bacterial hand gel, pill box (for advil, tylenol)
  • 2 RuMe bags from Delight.com – I LOVE these bags. We rarely use plastic bags at the grocery store now because I always carry these reusuable bags with me and they carry SO much more than one plastic grocery bag. The best part is that they roll up so small that I barely even notice then in my handbag! We keep two more in the car for times that we might be buying a lot more (like Costco trips). I even pull them out when I’m shopping at Nordstrom or other retail stores, to save from using their bags. If you have not gotten a reusuable bag yet, I highly recommend them!
  • iPhone & the Louis Vuitton Wapity – I’ve had a “smart phone” for over 3 years now. I was one of the first of my friends that actually got e-mail on my phone. Now everyone has one and this is my 3rd version of a “smart phone”. I admit that it does help that my company pays for my cell phone bill so I don’t have to worry about all the expenses that a data plan brings. When I got my first fancy phone J knew that I was worried about scratching it so he bought me the LV Wapity to protect it. It’s now lasted through all 3 upgrades and has fit all the phones that I’ve had! I love it because I never have to scramble around to find my phone in my bag. I just reach in and find the Wapity!
  • Ice Breakers Sours – I have a thing for sour candy. Also, I have a habit of forgetting to eat so when my blood sugar is low, I pop in one of those candies and it helps me not faint at my desk. 🙂
  • Hello Kitty tissue holder – I bought this at the Tokyo airport. It was Hello Kitty, I couldn’t resist! Plus, I always like to have tissue on me so it’s nice to have a cute lil holder.
  • iPod Classic – it’s crazy how much this can hold! I have full seasons of It’s Always Sunny in Phildelphia (funniest show ever!), Gossip Girl and all my music and photos and I still have a ton of space.
  • Hello Kitty toothpick holder – same reasons as the tissue holder 🙂 It’s got a little pocket for the toothpicks and a little mirror built in. As I mentioned before, I always have stuff stuck in my teeth so it was a must-have.
  • Gucci passport wallet – It was originally used to protect my passport but now I use it to keep all my grocery store “club” cards, blockbuster card, gift cards, coffee cards, etc. I found it to be a pain to keep those things in my wallet with my credit cards and such so it’s much nicer to have a separate place for all that stuff.
  • Gucci long wallet – I have used this wallet for I think 3 years now and it still looks new. It was expensive but considering how many wallets I went through before I got this one, it was worth it. (I don’t think they carry mine anymore, but this one is similar)


Close up of my iPhone wallpaper! 🙂 I always like to see what other people have on their wallpaper. And how cute is the little red bow on the tissue holder?

This was fun sharing what I keep in my bag! I’ve seen a few other bloggers who have done this and it’s always interesting to see. If any of you post a “what’s in my bag” on your blog let me know and I’ll link you here!

    why am i not surprised that your bag is not only chic, but perfectly organized!

    i love everything in your bag literally everything! I especially love it that you dont feel like you have to matchy matchy everything. I’m sorry i have to say this but it bugs (my cousin does it) like matching wallet for every matching bag. Sometimes i just think its unnecessary .

    oh and the LV monogram is probably the only bag i will buy. I’ve never been into the epi or the damier. Classic bags that will look fabulous 10 years from now are usually what i go for. but i totally get what you’re saying.

    i know we talked about this via email but you’ve definitely inspired me to get it done!

    Your bag is sooooo neat and put together! I adore your bag and your accessories! I’m with Kelly that I think that it is cool that you are not totally matching:)

    I have invested in several of the LV monograms as well….I think that they are timeless and they really do keep their shape and do not show signs of wear. I even have my grandmother’s speedy from over 20 years ago and it still looks great!

    Thank you so much for mentioning the giveaway!

    ooh fun! i love getting glimpses into people’s bags. i’m also happy to see LV monogram getting a bit of love from a fashionista. i’m tired of seeing everyone bash it just b/c of what it’s become. your tote is a classic!

    i think the “what’s in your bag” posts are one of my faves to read on blogs. why am i not shocked that everything is so neat and organized? haha i love the RuMe bags. I’m going to get some, too, so i stop feeling guilty about using plastic bags.

    btw, i did my what’s in your bag post awhile ago…dunno if i want to do another one. haha my mahina fits a lot and it was tiring taking everything out.

    Thanks for the peek into your bag! I was toying with the idea of getting an LV neverfull – I love how classic they are. You are definitely more organized than I am! I love the idea of smaller bags inside to keep everything in its place. I think I will have to do that with my own!

    Of course the inside of your bag would be as fab as the outside! I don’t mind the LV Monogram at all…it’s classic.

    You’re so organized, I’m definitely using some of your tips-my bag is a big black hole and I’ll dig around in there for 20 minutes trying to find my lip gloss! SO ANNOYING!

    Great post love! XO

    Oh love what’s in your bag! I’ll definitely have to do something similar, except mine is never as interesting! Haha. It’s like, “chapstick, eyelash curler, and feminine product.” haha jk. =) I’ll have to steal this idea and link you.

    The mixture of LV and Hello Kitty is great. 🙂 I love the moments where I’m carrying spark plugs or a wrench in my bag, something really out of the ordinary… But all this puts my Coach bag to shame and makes it look super cheap. 🙁 (Even though it cost me almost half a paycheck while I was making my big money last summer.)

    I’m always curious about what others carry in their bags. Yours is very organized. I always have a hand sanitizer too. Oh I love Ice breaker sours – i get the one in the tin can! I’m not a Monogram fan, but I can make an exception for LV =)

    I love the LV monogram..I have a speedy and a duffel and I adore them both. they are completely timeless.
    as for your bag contents…omg…the inside of my bag is always a disaster! I feel like I clean it out once a week and I still find random things, receipts, metrocards, pens, lipglosses whatever in there…it’s shameful. I really should be better about it and you’ve just inspired me!! 🙂

    ryc (re: your comment): don’t throw the dress away! make it shorter so it’s tunic length and you can wear it over leggings or skinny jeans and then you can throw a cardigan or light weight jkt over it to transition into fall. or if you still want it as a dress bring the length up to knee level. it’s too pretty to throw away. a simple hem job at the tailors will salvage the dress.

    Its a piece of heaven!!!
    There’s way too much stuff in my purse that it looks a typhoon passed by it.
    I tend to accumulate unnecessary things in time and it’s just so hard to break.

    How heavy is your bag with everything in it?
