Baggin With Courtney



Meet Courtney of Breaking Down, the Big Beige Box and see what she’s BAGGIN


What: Kenneth Cole

Age: 6 yrs: It's the first "expensive" handbag I bought with my sales bonus right out of college


1. Wallet

2. Work phone/Blackberry not pictured; used to take pic

3. Random book of Wedding toasts (Needs to be mailed to a friend who is a MOH in her sister's wedding)

4. Totally random false eyelashes and glue (Another wedding care package for a bride friend who is doing her own makeup. Can you tell I need to go to FedEx?)

5. Measuring tape- always with me. Even makes it into my work bag for those detours in between sales calls.

6. Aquaphor-best lip balm/multipurpose salve ever

7. Small pouch of good luck trinkets given to me by my amazing Aunt Beck (see below for more detail)

8. New personal calling cards from fabulous stationary.

Why: I love black, leather, and brass for starters. Secondly, this bag can do it all- from accompanying me to a fancy pants dinner to carrying a full bottle of wine when I run out of room in my Eco friendly grocery bags. It has taken a beating quite gracefully.

I love your "Baggin" posts. Yours was my favorite....I guess because we carry some of the same things except I carry a journal instead of a calendar and i'm nuts for Sharpies and colored pens.

Love her bag! and it really doesn't look 6 years old, I love these posts, it's fun to see what others carry around cuz Lord knows we all tote around waaay too much!

Courtney is a little too pretty for my liking. Not fair. It's also unfair that I don't have that bag.

Erika at BluLabel Bungalow said...

I love the fact that she had eyelashes in her purse! I've always wanted to learn how to wear them for the everyday.

I'm enjoying the baggin' series!

I really like this new series on your blog. I'm a bag girl, ♥ 'em bunches so... it's only natural to be interested in seeing what other women carry and what's inside.
