A "Just In Case" Kind of Gal

As a New Yorker, I think the "just in case" mentality is ingrained in your mind, the same way that you know that bagels are best with cream cheese.

To that end, one must always be prepared for New York's (or any city, for that matter) many curve balls. As a woman of the world, your purse acts as a great carry-all to prepare you for basically anything. At any given moment, in my purse, you can probably find enough toiletries, food, and accessories to last me at least 48 hours if needed.

As for some of my other handbag staples, you can always find lipstick/gloss, a pair of sunnies, necessary cards, and a safety pin! I'm also a fan of using everyday items that double as style staples, (hint - dryer sheets. Check out my recent post on that!

As for the purse itself, it most certainly needs to reflect my "ready for anything" lifestyle. I'm really loving bucket bags lately (see photo of what I'm carrying, below!), as they have plentyyyy of space, but still look incredibly chic. They easily transition from day to night - and you can carry all your day-to-night goodies with ease. Also, the cinch is nice added security to make sure your prized possessions don't go flying around.

For this post, I was inspired by Rue La La (if you don't know them already, you should), a fab online shopping destination that toasts designer brands at stellar prices. The gals at Rue love handbags as much as I do, and too believe that what's inside your bag is probably more important than the bag itself. That said, Rue La La has just launched a new handbag style guide, which shares info about iconic designs, must-know maintenance tips for your purse, and the origins of this essential accessory. Check it out!
