What kind of handbag?
Vintage Louis Vuitton backpack
What does your handbag say about you?
I think this bag kind of says it all. My style is super laid back with a mix of retro and high fashion. I LOVE finding vintage pieces and mixing them with modern day styles.
What's the most important thing in your handbag?
My iPhone and ear buds. I feel naked without them!
How about the most surprising thing?
My grandfather told me when I was a little girl that $2 bills are good luck. I always carry one with me to remind me of him.
What was the first handbag you carried that was memorable?
When I first moved to Vegas, I bought myself a Coach crossover bag. I was so excited because it was the first fashion label purse that I bought for myself with my paycheck.
Name eight items in your handbag and why you must carry them:
1. IPHONE! Most important thing: contacts, pics and music. Everything is on there!
2. Headphones. As a singer I am constantly listening and referring to my music.
3. Sephora lip gloss. Helps with the Vegas dryness and it looks pretty :)
4. Ricola throat lozenges! My throat gets very dry and these save my voice!
5. Hair ties. I have crazy long hair, so always have a hair tie on me just in case.
6. Sunglasses! This is Vegas, sunglasses are a must!
7. Pen and paper — you never know when inspiration might strike.
