I got a new bag the other day and I thought I’d do a ‘What’s in my bag’ post as I enjoy seeing what other people post about theirs. I’ve been using the same bag for years, a rather scruffy (but well loved!) vintage fringe bag…it’s very boho and I adore it, but I thought it was time to upgrade to something a bit smarter as sometimes my fringed bag feels a bit too ‘boho’.
After much deliberation and deciding that a higher end Mulberry, YSL or Chanel bag was out of my price limit (a girl can dream, right?) I opted for a smart black ‘Selma’ by Michael Kors. I originally ordered the Selma Mini with a new purse to match, but when the bag arrived and the purse was the only thing that would fit in the mini, I returned it and chose the Selma Medium.
I’m not usually one for designers or labels – I appreciate fashion from a distance (reading blogs and checking the news from Fashion week online) as my budget just would never stretch. But, having a beautiful bag arrive in the post and seeing the impressive quality, I can understand why people adore a little luxury!
I enjoyed swapping my bag over and am so impressed at the amount of space in the Selma Medium. I am not the sort of person that lugs tonnes of stuff around, but I like to know I could fit my kindle or some snacks if I needed.
What’s in my bag today…
Rayban sunglasses (they’re actually my sisters but I’ve somehow hijacked them seeing as she has to have prescription sunnies now)
Urban Decay Lipgloss – I love this lipgloss, it’s not too glossy or sticky, very natural looking. Most my makeup comes from Urban Decay as I like their products and they’re cruelty free! I use the shade ‘Naked’ which is a lovely neutral pink.
Chanel Lipstick – I’ve had this lipstick for years (probably too long) but I’ve recently fell back in love with it. The shade is Peregrina and it’s a pretty coral pink. I don’t wear it often but on special occasions, it’s so pretty.
My blue Jet Set Michael Kors purse – I ordered this when I first ordered the Selma mini as it was in the sale and I wasn’t expecting to be as in love with it as I am. It’s a beautiful light blue shade and feels amazingly luxurious. I’ve been using a coin purse with my cards stuffed in for years and it’s lovely to have something with card slots in!
My Emma Bridgewater tissues – I had to get some of my EB addition in somewhere! These were in the goodie bag we were given at the most recent event, the sample sale in May. They’re so cute, I might not ever use them!
There’s still tonnes of room left in the bag, so I’m very glad I swapped to the medium. Anything larger might have been too big for me, the medium is perfect!
