i haven’t done one of these in a bit, so here, let me pour the contents of my bag into a pile of things organized neatly and let you wonder what i’ve been up to this week.

i’ve been toting around this bag ever since it was passed by way by those lovely german folks at liebeskind. it is ridiculously soft and — would you believe? — features hand-painted stripes. though i can certainly fit more, here are its current contents:


by making use of that cute new treesje crossbody that plopped itself on my desk last week, i’ve been paring down a lot. here are the necessities:


i’ve been paring down a bit since writing this post; art should imitate life, don’t you think? that being said, here is what i’ve been carrying in my hare + hart clutch this week:


i’ve decided to resurrect my “a bag a week” feature. this time, i’m employing this rebecca minkoff number (c/o), which comes with a fur pocket. bow chicka bow bow.

  • diane von furstenberg sunglasses
  • see by chloe wallet
  • nars lipstick, new for spring 2013
  • sorrelli (c/o) and foley & corinna cuffs (c/o)
  • vintage leather gloves

when this junior drake bag was sent my way, i couldn’t wait to take it for a test drive. junior drake was conceived by the family of actress patsy brown to remind women that “it’s not the bag, it’s the girl!” though it’s a bit hefty, the bag has tons of pockets, the leather is soft and hardware simple enough for everyday use. what’s in it right now?

  • marc jacobs card holder
  • see by chloe wallet
  • nars holiday card
  • velvet gloss lip pencil in club mix
  • ray-ban wayfarers & ipad mini
behold! the contents of my purse this week! it was a close race, but the minkoff won by a nose; i tried to make the most of it’s small[er] size and employed the use of a canvas pouch to hold all of the little items that would normally be floating around. 
  • warby parker sunglasses
  • watch c/o swatch
  • makowsky wallet c/o qvc
  • american apparel pouch (contents include: mini nivea lotion, jennifer behr hair clip, eye base, tiber, lip treatment with spf, inhaler because i have asthma)

it’s that time of the week again, that time when you vote on which bag i’ll be toting around for the next seven days. this edition of “a bag a week" focuses on a shade that is between camel and mustard. it’s a little yellow, a little brown, but all sorts of wearable. so, which bag will it be:

  • the see by chloe on the left?
  • or the rebecca minkoff on the right?

i’ve been slacking, you guys! and no one said anything! since i’ve missed about a month of “a bag a week,” it is back and, i swear, it’ll never leave you again. this edition features a cult classic, the foley & corinna mid-city tote in a brand-spanking-new shade of seafoam. though the company recently closed its lower east side boutique, i have a feeling that there are big things in f & c’s future. what’s inside my bag?

  • fashion week press pass, ray-bans, fake zicam
  • assorted nars lip products (because, duh)
  • b. makowsky wallet c/o qvc
  • new york times article about tumblr c/o father zucker

you asked for the navy foley & corinna disco city tote as this week’s “a bag a week,” and here it is, in its full glory, crammed full of all my crap. and this isn’t just your average convertible clutch; it stirred up a lot of controversy when i first bought it. inside:

  • id card, keys, ipod
  • hayden-harnett coin purse
  • myfavoritenecklaceinthewholeworld
  • maybelline baby lips in “cherry me”
