w&w Guide to: Purse Essentials

August 28, 2008

A girl’s got to have her bag. It contains all the necessities needed throughout the day and brings our outfits together. Bags can be functional. Bags can be fun. Bags can be big and small and colorful. The options for bags are endless, but what’s really important is what do WITs have IN their bags?

Some Essentials:

1. Cell phone
duh

2. Lip gloss
I always have both a lip balm- Burt’s Bees is my preference- and a lip gloss (ok, I actually always have several lip glosses) at hand for instant – and totally necessary – touch ups throughout the day

3. iPod
Critical at times you’re forced to wait (i.e.; the doctor’s office) or need to bear the commute (i.e, everyone on the bus is loud and obnoxious and you need to drone them out). Check out all the latest types here.

4. Pressed powder
Goes without saying that every WIT needs a pick-me up sometimes and plus- you never know who you’re going to meet!

5. Stationery
Until you have a few notes at hand in your bag, you’ll never know how useful it truly is. When you remember about that thank you note you forgot to write ages ago or have the time to drop a line to a friend, it’s always nice to be able to grab a spare piece of stationery and draft up a little something. Stock up at your nearest Paper Source (I am obsessed with this place)!

6. Gum
When you can’t brush your teeth, gum is your new bff. Always, always have a pack in your purse and try out all of Orbit’s new yummy flavors.

7. Business Cards
A professional WIT should, at all times, be able to whip out a business card. Loads of companies make cute cases now too (like Franklin Covey) so be sure to get your hands on one of those. Even better for impressing prospective clients and prospective dates!

What other essentials do you WITs always have in your bag?
