Because I’m incurably nosey, I love poking around in other people’s bags. Probably not in real life (although don’t leave your stuff unattended when I’m around – sometimes the temptation is too much), but most definitely online. The Fashion Week handbag is a particularly interesting one – do you prepare for every eventuality, from sore feet to torrential rain, or go minimal and stick to the basics? Let’s take a look…
First up, my outfit – I wore Uniqlo jeans, a Next shirt and trench, ASOS necklace, charity shop cocktail ring, years old leather belt and Zara heels (which hurt. A LOT).
My bag is by Mulberry and was kindly sent to me by John Lewis. I love leather handbags but usually go for huge, slouchy affairs filled with a lifetime’s worth of junk. So how did I fare with this teeny tiny version?
I filled this little beauty with my Fashion Week essentials – my iPhone for capturing the shows, some change for lunch, my debit card for emergency glasses of champagne, my Oyster card (in a colour-coordinated wallet – so fashion!) for hot-footing it across London, a Lush lip balm and Topshop’s All About Me lipstick for touch ups. And that’s it! Well, kinda…
My secret shame – a gigantic Gap tote that contains an umbrella, flat shoes (thank GOD), multiple bottles of vitaminwater, schedules, my camera, more makeup, a hair brush, plasters… the list goes on. So not quite the minimalist look I was going for, but I least I’m always prepared.
Do you lug around a massive handbag, or are you the small and dainty type? And tell me – what’s inside?
PS – I’ve been working with John Lewis throughout Fashion Week and tomorrow I’ll be hosting a Q&A session on their Facebook page – if you have a burning question you’ve been dying to ask me, please come over between 12-1pm tomorrow (Weds 22nd) and I’ll answer it for you!
