It has been a while since I have done a 'What's In My Handbag' post, so I thought I'd show you what I keep in my lovely See by Chloe evening bag that I received as part of my collaboration with Vestiaire Collective a few months ago. Now, before I got this bag I used to not have an evening bag, as I needed something big enough to carry my beast of a DSLR camera in, and clutches really did not cut the mustard! My camera just about fits in this bag, but only if I carry the bare essentials with me.
The biggest non camera item I usually have in my evening bag is my wallet, which means this post is the perfect excuse to show off my brand new something of a leaving gift after a over 6 month collaboration with online shoe site Spartoo: this beautiful black Vivianne Westwood wallet which is currently in their sale for only £108.50! When it came I loved how it smelt of beautiful new leather, and that is has so many more card slots than my old oil cloth one from Cath Kidston.
As when I am out with this bag my options are limited, aside from my Blackberry which I have not pictured here and my car keys if I am driving, I carry the most bare essentials of makeup and beauty touch ups. I went through a really bad phase of breaking handbag mirrors, but this Clinique one with a leather cover has been with me for years, and I don't know what I would do without this super dinky little hairbrush the guys at Batiste gave me when I moved to London last September.
As for makeup, most of my touch ups can be done with the golden magic wand that is Yves Saint Laurent's Touche Eclat. Aside from that, because most of the time when I go out in the evenings I am eating and drinking I go for my nice neutral lipstick and lipgloss combination; M.A.C's Satin lipstick in 'Brave' and Clinique's Superbalm lipgloss in '09 Current'. Finally, my hands get really dry every time they are washed, so a handbag sized tube of L'Occitane's Shea Butter Hand Cream is a must have for me!
What do you like to carry with you when you go out in the evenings?
