Thank you BFF Stefania for tagging me with the Purse Meme. Just what wishbone clover needs: yet another post where I provide specific examples of how crazy I am. Yay! A million pictures and more detail than necessary after the jump.
Like Stefania, I am a fan of P. Diddy-style, all white stuff. Especially white bags. I saw this one at Banana Republic in November of 2006, obsessed about it for a few weeks and finally bought it with the help ("What are you, crazy? It's awesome! Just get it already!") of my sister Julz during Christmas in Boston that year.
It's a pretty basic hobo shape, has that excellent tassel, and expands to fit a ton.
It's pretty full.
The contents of the little inner pocket, clockwise from the upper left:
- handwritten wishbone clover "business" cards
- Apple store receipts for my beloved iPhone and the extra power cords I bought, then returned
- this cool present I keep forgetting to give Colleen, Rolaids, Blistex, and shea butter
- winning scratch ticket and the same three lotto tickets from an earlier, much more brief post about this bag and small bills
- $73 in small bills (don't say it)
- one penny, one dime
- lucky shamrock pin from Walgreens with $2.99 price tag still on it
- pill case
- four year-old jump drive (is that even what they're called anymore?)
- hair clip
- business cards from my past two jobs
- temporary tattoo of sunset stagecoach clipped to other peoples' business cards
- purple felt tip pen, lavender felt tip pen, and black, coolest Japanese pen ever
- the work building badge that I will gleefully hand back on Tuesday, March 4th
Inside the "main" compartment, kinda by row, from the left:
- cashmere elbow-length gloves, which are completely unnecessary in SF's current 70 degree weather
- pair of Sue London ballet flats in their little leather traveling bag
- green and white folding umbrella
- black and white "ladyflower tools" bag
- green wallet
- comb for hair teasing
- red lightening bolt makeup and contacts bag
- glasses case
"THIRD" row (sort of zig zagging top to bottom):
- January 2008 Harpers magazine
- giant, white, 2nd generation ipod
- iPhone that was supposed to "replace" the previous two
- Ice Breakers gum in blue and green flavors
- blue Sally Hansen nail polish pen
- notebook for Harriet the Spy activities
- mint tea
- hair elastics
- silver medicine bag containing Sudafed, Imodium, Tylenol, Benadryl, Excedrin and good luck jade charm from Aunty Jo, just in case
And finally, all of it spread out across the living room carpet. It really looks like a lot to fit into that bag, doesn't it? Now I have to repack it before Chief gets home and freaks out at this mess.
