This past week the ladies at the Hairpin emptied out their purses for the world to see, and since I love that shit and the last time I did it was in 2008 (love how I always need bandaids), I figured I was due. I considered throwing my dice bag in there to get some cred but it felt disingenuous, seeing as I haven't played since our DM moved away.

Here we go, clockwise starting with the wallet!


1. Fossil/Relic wallet, full of discount cards for Borders and ABC Liquor and I think five bucks.

2. A measuring tape, which, you have no idea how useful this is sometimes. No idea. I was planning to empty this out and use it as a pill case, but it doesn't close properly. The mints were disgusting so I ended up dumping them out. I'm still hopeful.

3. Dinosaur print makeup bag containing a tampon, Clinique black honey lipstick, chapstick, a ponytail holder, two nail files (?!) and white citrus perfume.

4. Sad utilitarian keys. I no longer have a key fob because I lost my keys somewhere across America when I was roadtripping this summer and didn't realize it until I was home. They could be anywhere from Los Angeles to Pensacola, and I have no fucking idea where. That was a problem when I tried to get back in my own car, let me tell you.

5. Lucky Brand purse (that I may have stolen from my mom).

6. Moleskine planner, Staedler pens. The hipster standard. I'm more likely to be organized if I have pretty shit that I feel guilty about not using. And my six year old ipod which still works like a champ and has every embarrassing song I've ever downloaded since I was 16.

7. Freefloating "Yes to Carrots" lip balm and lotion. Excellent shit, and you feel all responsible and organic.

8. Pocketknife and unholy rats nest of a jump drive on a string and old handsfree for a phone I haven't had since October that I discovered when I opened the zip pocket on the inside of my purse. Bonus: busted silica packet!

9. Iphone with Jonathan Adler case and naked lady matches from a tapas restaurant with one burnt match put back in the box.

10. Bandaids, which are a necessity if you're me, honey-scented solid perfume (I change my perfume according to season, okay) and my ACTUAL pill case.

Hee. Do you remember why you did that?

ODDLY ENOUGH, haha, I did not do that. My friend Sean kept stealing my matches during French study group. Scared the shit out of Brianna, who thought he was going to burn down the entire library. I have no idea why he put that one back.

I love this. Everything in your purse looks so NICE and in one piece. Everything in mine looks torn to shreds.

I clicked through the link to the other blog and their purses look a lot more like mine. A lot of crumpled things.

If it makes you feel any better, my purse is only organized because I have to switch back and forth between purse and messenger bag a lot. Give me a week away from school and it's like Mary Poppins's bag in there.

How does all your stuff not look wrecked though? That's what really gets me.

Like which things? My wallet is less than a year old and the one I had before had the color rubbed off half of it and some coffee stains on the suede. It was sad.

Lol, and I don't know, dude, I did open up the one zipped pocket and find a rat's nest of cords and an opened silica packet.

Maybe I'll post mine and you'll see what I mean.
