Happy Thursday, dear readers! Apologies for the absence of last week's "What's In Your Bag??" post, but never fear! We're back with a special Big Apple edition of your favorite snooping story!
Today's submission comes courtesy of my close college buddy Emily Christian Cutts, a New York City girl by way of Wilmington, NC, and blogger behind the fashion-news-worthy Golden Zipper! After getting married in Florence, Italy, this past summer, Em and her hubby followed their calling to NYC. But as Carrie Bradshaw so astutely observed, cars are to Californians what handbags are to New Yorkers. Em recently scooped up the perfect New York vehicle for her travel on the streets- the 3.1 Phillip Lim Edie bag!
Spikey yet sweet, Em's favorite new carryall perfectly combines that tough-girl chic factor necessary to survive in the City. Obviously without her own steady transportation, Em needs her MetroCard and keeps it at hand along with other personal items in her ecru leather Prada wallet, a wedding gift her hubby purchased in a Florentine vintage shop. Her keys are stylishly stowed on a Marc Jacobs key ring, pictured below atop her gold and pink graffiti-esque iPhone. Em, ever the artist, also carries her Smythson Hopes and Dreams notebook so she can jot down thoughts, sketches and notes while roaming the city. Finally, beauty products by way of Lorac Gloss Stick and Olivina Honeysuck Rose Hand Creme remain steady companions.
It makes friends like me feel good to know that Emily is closely guarded by someone as reliable as Phillip Lim. Clearly, she has taken New York by stylish storm and she hasn't even lived there six months yet!
Can't wait to see what's in store for my newest New York pal as she heads into the future...and maybe schedule a visit or two in the meantime!
Thanks to Em C. for participating and thank you for visiting. Until next week!
