#3 Shelby on 2010-11-08 16:30
Nice purse!!!

I would carry all my daily essentials and my book :-) I just love that zipper pouch on the front for my phone! I'm sure I could find lots of other stuff to stuff in there as well.

And the purse is such a great color!
#4 Kerensa on 2010-11-08 16:37
That is one ugly bag, I wouldn't use it if someone paid me $79
#5 Angela on 2010-11-08 16:44
I'd carry my moleskine, cell phone, concealer and illumination duo (best. thing. ever), keys, wallet, and- of course- my lucky John Quincy Adams dollar coin.

P.S. I'm following Tyler Rodan on fb and the budget babe on twitter (annexlasalle)!
#6 Kate on 2010-11-08 16:45
I'd carry my whole life in that bag! wallet, phone, zipper pouch with all of my everyday needs, camera...

Thanks for the opportunity!
#7 Lauren on 2010-11-08 17:02
I'd carry the usual; wallet, keys, camera, and my "everything" pouch with hand sanitizer, chapstick, nail file, and lip gloss. I would most likely also try to fit some small baby toys in there to keep the little one happy at random times. (have to be prepared right?!)
#8 Kristin on 2010-11-08 17:43
Firstly the matching umbrella that comes with it, as well as my wallet and lip gloss
#9 JJ on 2010-11-08 18:24
I would carry my morning apple, my fat wallet (fat with reciepts, not money, sigh), afternoon bannana, my favorite chapstick and my compact!
#10 Melissa on 2010-11-08 18:29
I would carry EVERYTHING. As in my wallet, my card case, my sony cybershot camera, a pen, my school planner, my calculator, my aviator ray bans (when I'm not wearing them), as well as my wayfarer ray bans (because I never know which matches my outfit that day), my makeup, some gum, mints, a rice krispies, a fruit snack and last but not least three different scents of hand sanitizers. I know what you're thinking, that's a lot of stuff, but you never know what you might need, specially when you're a college student. ;-)
#11 Angie on 2010-11-08 18:37
I would carry my wallet, cell phone, and whatever else I need for the day!

#17 Lisa on 2010-11-08 20:06
That bag would be awesome for carrying the usual; wallet, makeup bag, chapstick, iphone
but it would also be lovingly toting earrings (I always have extras), my book of the moment, crossword puzzles, sudoku, pens, anatomy flash cards & other homework, my library card, magazines, my train tickets, and hopefully my passport if I'm going somewhere :-)
#18 Caroline on 2010-11-08 20:53

I'd carry my life in this bag (as always). "My life" currently includes a wallet, a recipe for oven "fried" chicken I've been meaning to buy ingredients for, about 7 lip glosses, floss, an empty foundation compact, too many pens, and misc. pieces of paper I keep forgetting to throw out. Standard. (PS I'm also a FB fan and twitter follower!)
#21 Carolyn Baumgarten on 2010-11-08 21:26
I'm so in need of a practical purse right now, and I love that thins one comes with an umbrella since we just moved to Seattle! I'd be carrying my cell phone, wallet, lip gloss, a book, planner, and a Balance Bar. Then I'd need that extra space for whatever my kids and hubby shoved in after that!

PS - I fanned them on FB, and always follow you on Twitter. Love it!
#22 Katie (Homepage) on 2010-11-08 21:26

Fanned & Followed :-)
#23 Amber (Homepage) on 2010-11-08 22:17

#32 Emily (Homepage) on 2010-11-09 08:31

#36 Jessica S on 2010-11-09 10:32
What a pretty purse! It looks like it would handle all the things I need for my commute to work every day - wallet phone, work phone, keys, make-up, granola bar ... random receipts ... a pen or two ... my gigantic sunglasses case ...

This bag looks like it is ready for the challenge.

Here's to WISHING!
#39 Michelle on 2010-11-09 11:00
The worse part of being a woman is our pant pockets are never big enough to hold anything. I would store my wallet, keys, make up and some snacks. :-)
#40 HannieBon on 2010-11-09 11:01
Oh, wallet, toiletries (I carry like, half of everything), second wallet, flashlight, keys, business cards, hairbrush, and probably a bunch of other things. I carry my entire life in my purse!
#41 BrieCS (Homepage) on 2010-11-09 11:07
I'd carry things that I probably wouldn't need on an everyday basis but when it fits in your bag,why not! This bag is conveniently sized to fit everyday items plus some of the "just in case" items. LOVE IT.
#42 anita on 2010-11-09 11:22

#44 kaalomai on 2010-11-09 11:30
I would tranfer my current purse contents into this new bag. It is always a fun process of changing over a new purse...going through all of the little trinkets you have some how magically collected since the last spring cleaning...I have my wallet, camera, a monopod for my camera (which I like to call my disco stick), my sunglasses & case, hand sanitizer (cuz let's face it the airplane hanger where I work is gross) and all of my coupons (I have become a fanatic) and that little zipper pouch looks like the perfect place to put them!

#58 Justine on 2010-11-09 16:35
I love this! First and foremost, I would have a snack in there. When my blood sugar drops, I must have something on hand. So that's #1. Then obviously, I'd have my wallet, lipstick, iPhone and glasses. That's pretty much my essentials!

#80 Giselle on 2010-11-10 22:33
Cute bag! Perfect color for winter. I like that it comes with a matching umbrella too. You can never have too many umbrellas, especially if you lose them all the time like I do!

I like to carry my whole life in my purse. Wallet, 7 different kinds of lipstick/lip gloss, 2 kinds of lip balm, gum, cell phone, book, brush, mirror, pens, newspaper, iPod, camera, notebook, umbrella, and if my purse is big enough, my laptop.

Nice style bag but over priced for a bag that is not leather.
#84 Grace Palmer on 2010-11-11 17:46
I would carry my lipstick. That's a lie, I don't wear lipstick. I would carry my wallet, my keys, my fabulous phone and all of my necesities. I, too, liked on Facebook.
#85 PattyB. (Homepage) on 2010-11-11 20:25
I would carry all of the normal girly stuff that we carry. However, as roomy as the handbags are, I have the option to add: a two liter, a medium sized dog, a Wii, a football, or a small child. The possibilities are endless!! Love the designs!!!
