What's inside your bag?

Lately, I have found myself trapped into watching "What's inside my bag" celebrity segments! From GQ, to Vogue, rustling through celebrity bags, to YouTubers, and bloggers posting segments showing what's inside their bags. Everyone seems to be curious about what people carry inside their bags!! Why have we become so snoopy? I attribute my addiction to customer market research!

You can usually tell a lot about a person by how they organize themselves, and what they choose to carry inside their bags. My handbag is a sneak peek into my world; it carries all my everyday necessities, like a phone, make-up, metro card, card wallet, nail file. I think the handbag has become the most essential fashion accessory on the market for women. We literally live out of our handbags.

Handbags are a mirror to your personal style which is the reason why designers and famous labels invest a lot of time and money into making these perfect little accessories that we carry around all day! Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Tory Burch and Cole Haan to various other famous labels like Nine West, Fossil, Vera Bradley, who showcase their brand identity by offering bags in various popular styles.

Let's breakdown different style of bags that can fit your lifestyle, shall we?


Satchels generally have long handles to carry over your shoulder or on your arm. They are typically closed by a flap and are more structured with a flat bottom. The satchel tends to have inside pockets which is a must for all the ladies who love to keep things organized!

Hobo Bags

Hobo Bags have a curved bottom and are more slouchy, wider than structured bags.

They tend to have a more relaxed hippy-chic style going on---which really suits me on the weekends.

Cross-body bags

Cross-body bags are fast becoming the most convenient bag. I am always on the go and like to travel hands-free, as it fits my lifestyle perfectly and really works for New York city living!


Clutches are the perfect bag for the day-to-night transition that happens at dusk. I tend to keep all my small essentials organized in this size bag and always find them easy to access.

Tote Bags

Tote Bags can have short or long handles to carry easily on your shoulder. It is a perfect bag to carry your work files and notebooks to and from the office.


Backpacks have transgressed from practical to trendy. It's definitely a must accessory in your closet this season!

So what's in your bag?
