I tend not to carry a bag around. Mostly that's because I'm at school and I carry around a backpack all day, but also because I'm not much of a purse type of person. I'd rather throw my wallet and keys in my pocket and run where ever I need to go. I do have my go-to bag though, and I throw all my crap into it. Since I've used it a lot recently, I thought that I should make a post about it since I personally love to see these sorts of things.
I have the imitation Alexander Wang Rocco bag that is all the rage over on Ebay. I wouldn't recommend it since my zipper broke on what was pretty much my first day using it. Then again, its an imitation bag and the real things costs about $900, so I think taking a risk with only $40 is a chance worth taking. Unless, of course, you'd rather be out of $900. (Which I definitely would be if I had the cash, but I'll have to settle for the fake one... for now. )
So studs on the bottom, of course. I sewed on the little metal rings on the side in order to attach a strap. When I ordered mine, the listing showed a strap in the picture, but it showed up without one. Yet another reason I wasn't all too happy with my purchase, but once again it's all perspective.
So here is what I shove into it!
From the left working toward the right, I've got a stack with my creme colored wallet on top of my Hamlet book and monthly planner. In front of that is my book of the moment: A Clash of Kings which is soooo long! I love it, but its taking me forever to get through. I don't get enough time to read as I would like, so I only end up reading about two chapters a week. I'm even more anxious because I'm forcing myself not to watch the second season until I'm finished with the book. I watched season one before I read the first book and it ruined the whole book for me.
Okay, I got really side-tracked there. Moving on. Then I've got a collection of Vaseline Hand lotion with hand sanitizer, an ELF red lipstick, Carmex, and Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch. Unfortunately, my calculator must be toted around because I can't forget to bring it to my Calculus and Physics classes. I've got a water bottle to keep hydrated and some pens. There are my headphones wadded up like usual, often in a knot at the bottom of my bag, my car keys, and lastly my sunglasses which are just some gold aviators I got at Charming Charlie a while ago.
Oh, and I forgot my phone in the picture, that's in my bag too.
