What's in My Bag + Rue La La Love

It's no secret that some of my most favorite items in my home are from Rue La La. This throw is simply amazing, and I wear this turquoise Yumi Kim blouse all the time. I joined Rue La La last year before we went to Chicago in September so I could get some flats to wear on our trip. Since then I've bought something almost every single month. You really can't beat the pay shipping once and then ship for 30 days.
I wanted to share their premier Handbag Guide with y'all, just in case you are in the market for a new bag. I find that when seasons change it's a good time to invest in some new things. Right now this Mansur Gavriel bucket (currently sold out) might be one of my most favorite bags.
I like a big handbag, and when it comes to what I carry inside too much is never enough. Here is what's in my bag:
First, the bag. Michael Kors from TJ Maxx. The sign behind is says "Saw it, Wanted it, Had a fit, Got it." This is my closet.
What all is inside my bag:
 Sunglasses Gucci Spring 2014 (here they are in brown) prescription from my doctor Eye on Gervais
Lilly Pulitzer Sunglasses Strap
ear buds
Coach wallet (old Daisy collection) 
Inside Lilly Pulitzer Estee Lauder makeup bag
The Wet Brush (best hairbrush I've found)
hair bands
asthma inhaler
Poo Pouri (seriously watch their commercial, although I maintain that girls don't go to the bathroom)
Clean and Clear blotting papers
eye drops
assorted lipsticks and chapstick
nail files
cotton balls
wedding koozie
pure barre socks   

 Inside my wallet
 Just to show you how much room these sunglasses take up
When I carry a clutch to something like a wedding, I will take my real bag and leave it in the car and only carry a few essentials that will fit into the clutch. And I find that painful. If anyone ever needs a Band-Aid or a safety pin or who knows what else, it can usually be found in my purse, and I like that. I also have my kindle and iphone in my purse a lot of times.
Don't forget to check out Rue La La's Handbag Guide. My favorite part is the time line towards the bottom of the page.
Thanks so much for reading!

  1. I have been leaving my big purse at home and just carrying a clutch lately, I try to fit everything in there!!! Poo-pouri...that is hilarious :)

  2. I always have hair bands and bobby pins. You never know when you'll need them! And my camera. I am convinced that I'll see a unicorn or a UFO if I forget my camera.

  3. I'm the same--there's always a ton of stuff in my bag! And I love your glasses--so Jackie O!
