I’ve been LOVING my Marc Jacobs Single bag – it’s my everyday bag – and it puts a smile on my face whenever I look down at its quilted cuteness!
However – as you can see, it’s a teeny TINY bag – quite similar to Chanel’s WOC. I’ve had to downsize a LOT so that I could use this bag – I guess it’s true love when you’re willing to make sacrifices 😉
There are 3 compartments inside the bag. The back has a row of card slots, so you can keep your credit cards in the bag instead of in a separate wallet. I prefer using my own wallet as it makes it easier to switch out to a bigger bag on the weekends. The cupcake sticker shows where I keep my iPhone (since I was using it to take pictures).
Inside my bag:
-blue wallet (the smallest wallet I own…am on the hunt for a cuter one)
-Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene 6-keyholder
-Wet Ones travel wipes
-ELF blotting papers
-mini BALMSHELL lipgloss
-garage door opener
-iPhone 4s (pictured below)
Things I had to give up carrying: (I carry them in my bigger bag on the weekends)
-extra wallet containing store cards/gift cards
-tylenol & gum
-hand cream & cuticle cream
-more toiletries (lipliner, nail file, hairbrush)
-sunglasses (I keep them by the door and wear them out)
Down-sizing was hard because I like being prepared, but when I looked at what I needed on a day-to-day basis (basically the school run) I realized I didn’t need to carry so much stuff. If I am going to be out longer during the week – it’s easy enough to switch to a bigger bag…but for now, my shoulders are thanking me!
