Handbag Collection

I love bags. Then again I love planners. I also LOVE the Steelers. I have of love to go around. I  shared my Declutter 101: Handbags & Accessories and I wanted to share a closer look at my handbag collection. A lot of the bags that I decided to keep are not only staples that will last me for, but a few are designer as well. Take a look at my beauties below:

THE NEW YOU-3

THE NEW YOU-2THE NEW YOU

All the bags that I decided to keep are bags that I interchange frequently. Usually when I use a bag I’ll use it for a few months before switching to another. The Victoria Secret’s bags each have a different purpose. The larger black one I love to throw everything into. You need days like those. The Pink one is for the beach (Nicki Minaj voice), and the black and pink one I use for a variety of things.

I could never have enough black bags. Each one has a different purpose. There’s my quilted one which is my go to for a night out. Then there’s my drawstring bucket bag that I love, but I don’t wear as much simply because it doesn’t fit my planner. It’s become more of a weekend bag for running errands.

Lastly, my designer bags. The Louis Vuitton and Coach bags were my moms and I could never give those away. I wear the Coach one more frequently opposed to the Louis Vuitton one. When it comes to designer bags that I would like to add to my collection I would like the Michael Kors ‘Selma’ in black and yellow and the Louis Vuitton Neverfull GM in the Monogram print. Other than that I’m pretty happy with my bags. You do not have to spend a lot of money on a purse and yes, I wear all of my bags. No sense in keeping everything pretty. Use what you have.

Fashion Forward Friday [V. 21]: What’s In My Bag, Winter Edition

It’s been a year since I’ve posted a What’s In My Bag. When I started my Fashion Forward Friday Series it was the first installment (Click HERE for that). Well, I love sharing what’s in my bag and when looking at my initial post, the contents are pretty much the same. I thought I’d still share anyway.

The purse that I am currently using is a Liz Claiborne Drawstring Bucket Bag from JCPenny. I posted it in my ‘Happy HAULidays’ post (Click HERE for that), I got my bag in black which is what I needed, an everyday black bag.

No need to go in depth with everything as most of what’s in my bag are self-explanatory,.I will say, I always need to have pens and paper to jot down blogging ideas and other thoughts I have throughout the day. I prefer to write than take notes in my phone.

Looking closer into my ‘lippie bag’, I chose to uses  clear bag from one of my bag sets so I could see everything. I have a mirror, translucent powder, a brush, and  mascara. I use the translucent powered to make the OCC lip tar stay on longer. As for my three lip colors (click the links to lead directly to product):

I will be doing a review on both the OCC and Tarte lippies that I received in the Sephora, ‘Give Me More Lip, set. Stay tuned for that,

Usually there’s more junk such as lose papers and what not, but since I just got the bag and I’ve been using it for less than a month it’s pretty clean.
