Tag: Name 6 Things in Your Handbag

Lynn of Heart and Soul tagged us with "Name 6 Things in Your Handbag." Being identical twins we're very similar in many ways, but I think our purse contents highlight our differences. I tend to be more practical, while Lauren is more artistically inclined. See for yourself:

C's bag:

1. Giant black sunglasses and fake alligator sunglass case. Both from Target.
2. Orbitz gum - the mint mojito tastes like the real thing. So delicious...
3. Faux cigarette case where I keep my business cards, from Urban Outfitters.
4. I've been using this old Geoffrey Beene wallet for years. I prefer using men's wallets because they tend to take up less room. Sadly, my wallet always seems to be filled with more receipts than cash.
5. My Palm Treo - I'd be completely lost without it.
6. Duck and Herring Pocket Field Guide, Cold Weather 2007-2008. I always like having a book on hand. The PFC is the perfect size for a small to medium-size purse and offers hours of entertainment.

L's bag:


Cath also didn't mention that she is much more neat than I am! Luckily this voluminous, faux snake-skin sack that is my purse is hiding old receipts, gum wrappers, coins, etc.
1. A book: number one rule for me when choosing a purse is it must be large enough to hold at least a paperback. I love petite clutches and delicately beaded evening bags, but they are a no go unfortunately. My current purse book is "Good Bye to All That" by Robert Graves... a freebie from a lovely warehouse/used bookstore in Stone Mountain, GA.
2. Mini Notebook: this lovely Moleskin notebook has beautiful sketch-book quality paper... perfect for doodling of any kind... this shows a few fashion/outfit ideas.
3. Mini Calendar: I love the magenta color because it usually pops out from the recesses of the black hole. Cath can streamline with her Treo...I need paper and post-its. When Cath gave me her hand-me-down Palm Pilot I never learned how to do more than turn it on... and then I stuck post-its all over it. Lesson learned.
4. The Wallet: usually brimming with receipts rather than cash unfortunately
5. Cell: my slide Sony Ericsson phone. Way too sleek for moi, but tin-cans with string don't do the trick any more
6. Accoutrements: lip gloss, hand lotion, mirror/brush, mirror (now seem vain... who needs 2?), gum, mascara, etc.

Into the Fray and Come Thrifting With Me, tag, you're it!
