Yesterday, I shared with you my favorites for February. Today I’m going to share with you what’s in my bag because, why not? I always try to keep my purse clean and streamlined so that it’s not weighing me down all day. It’s my trick of the trade. As an image consultant/personal stylist, I shop all day and need my bag to be light so it doesn’t slow me down. I feel like most women carry way too much in their bags (think kitchen sink) just incase they might need it someday.
Here’s a list of my must have essentials and what I’ve got lounging in my purse.
Mints – You have got to have mints! My favorite is the one you can pick up at Starbucks, but any will do. When I’m with clients in close quarters most of the day, it’s nice to have fresh breath.
Wallet – I mean what person doesn’t have a wallet in their purse right? It’s one of those things that we just can’t live without. I know I can’t. It houses my cash, credit cards, and anything that allows me to buy and wear all the fabulous things I recommend here on The Style Studio by KB!
Clutch – My number one purse hack. It’s just the right size to fit inside of my tote and can still hold essentials. that I can stick anything in it. Think wallet, lipstick, crayons for Stella, a comb and mints. Not only that, it’s a major time and space savor. I can literally grab this clutch and run into a store or out to dinner without having to carry a tote around everywhere. How perfect right?
Lipstick – I never leave the house without my Bobbi Brown Luxe Neutral Rose Lipstick. It’s the perfect shade. Don’t be fooled by the picture though. I’m known to have at least 5 shades of various lipsticks and glosses.

Measuring Tape – As an image consultant and fashion stylist, I am never without my trusty measuring tape. Whether I’m in a client’s closet, at a fitting or out shopping, it keeps me always prepared. Trust me, if you are in the fashion industry, this will be a staple for you.
Sunglasses – Need I say more? Sunnies are a must, especially here in Denver where we live 5,280 miles above sea level and the sun shines so brightly. Think 360 days?
Crayons – I actually have two packs of crayons to keep my daughter busy with coloring whenever we are at dinner or at an appointment. For all you moms out there, you know that crayons go a long way.
Hand sanitizer – My favorite is babyganics because it is alcohol free and won’t dry out your hands. I am constantly in client’s closets, touching people, shaking hands, carrying dirty hangers and this little gem keeps me clean! I should also say that I’m a bit of a germaphobe and this gives me piece of mind.
A Bar – Today it’s a That’s It bar but other days it’s a Kind bar. I am never without at least two in my purse. We have a crazy schedule and almost never stop to eat. This way, I can eat it while I’m running from store to store. It’s also really convenient for those times when Stella is hungry!
Ignatia Amara – Or shall I say my secret weapon? These little pills that I get from Whole Foods keep me cool, calm and collected throughout the day. Whenever I get stressed or agitated, I pop 8 pills under my tounge and within minutes, I am back to feeling Zen.
That’s what’s in my bag. What’s in yours?
