What's Inside My Phillip Lim Bag



Somehow I managed to snag this Phillip Lim for Target bag a day and a half after his collection hit the stores. It was released when we were in Chicago and I completely forgot about it, but by total luck a Target about 15 minutes away from our house had two of the black medium satchel's still available (and this leopard print scarf that I attached to it!). I couldn't believe it. I love this bag and know I will get so much use out of it. I figured I'd share what you can find me carrying in it now on a daily basis. Besides, I'm nosey and love seeing what other girls carry in their bags!

I like to keep various compartments because it makes me feel more organized. I keep two soft Vera Bradley zip pouches in my bag at all times...

the bigger one has: L'oreal True Match powder (my favorite), a small tube of mascara (this one is Tarte), Burts Bees chapstick, and an Elf lip gloss.

the smaller one: headphones (don't you hate when they get tangled?) and a small mirror

The rest of the items:
+Michael Kors wallet
+Ray-Ban aviator sunglasses
+A small brush that also holds bobby pins
+My new "Eat Blog Love" notepad

>If you're a blogger, you need this notepad. The pages are titled "Can't forget to blog about..." so that you never miss an idea. More on this tomorrow (see below!) but if you want 10% off  any order right now, use the code: "KeepCalm"

+My planner (from Target)
+My new The Home t-shirt

>You're probably thinking-a shirt in your purse, is that necessary Katie? But it is (and not just because Ashley Greene has been wearing this shirt out and about, I kinda love her.) This isn't your regular t-shirt...it is the softest shirt you will ever wear and you can represent your home state at the same time! I call that a win.

Get yourself one here. I like keeping it in my purse/in my car for those times I want to change into something casual or need something to wear to the gym (they also donate a portion of the profits to MS research!).

**In regards to the "Eat Blog Love" notepad-hint hint there may be a giveaway for shop credit to Crystal Faye happening HERE tomorrow. Come back then. Happy Thursday!

What do you keep inside your favorite bag?
Share with me, since just what I need is more "stuff" in there. ;)

  6. I love that bag! Man I hope they still have one when I get to Target today! I've been eyeing those shirts too, so it's good to hear some feedback that they are as fab as I thought they would be.

  8. I'm constantly changing purses, so I'm like you and try to keep everything in smaller compartments and bags. It's so helpful! Plus I hate digging around in the bottom of my purse for something.

  11. I love the bag you got!! And how cute are those notebooks?! It's always so fun to see what's in other people's bags!

  12. Love how you paired the scarf and the bag! How did you get your gold Target planner to stay looking new? Mine got all scratched and ugly on the gold part after a few weeks :(

  13. I'm nosy and love to see what others are carrying in their bags as well. I love the scarf and that notebook is so cute so I can't wait to hear more about that tomorrow. I also really like the t-shirt, how do the sizes run? I would probably want a Small or Extra Small and would want it fitted, but not too tight. Also, I wanted to give you a heads up that I mentioned your blog today as one that I have been loving lately :)

  18. how are the insides of your bag so cute?! i have like a tide stick, some squished orbitz gum and like 35 pink lip glosses! I clearly need to find prettier things to put in my box.

    Also, I think your bag and scar are the only PL items I like from the collection - too cute!

  19. I will definitely be buying the notepad ASAP! So adorable! The Phillip Lim bag is growing on me, especially with the scarf added to it. I am an avid eBay shopper and there are a ton of them listed already.

    I actually just bought my Prabal Gurung for Target Nolita heels and clutch a few weeks ago on eBay and wore them for the first time today. I got so many compliments on them. I may have to get this bag on eBay too!

  22. That bag is so cute! I totally paid no attention to the Philip Lim collection before it came out and saw it after it had sold out and was super sad I didn't scoop up one of those bags. They're so pretty!
