It’s that time again – TKC’s tour de bags. Where we take innocent bystanders and make them empty the contents of their carryall, because we can’t think of a better way to find must have products than by digging through someone else’s. Next up? Fashion designer Nikki Chasin. And if you think her handbag is cool (seriously, buying one right now…), wait until you see what she’s got inside.
“I tend to be running around during the day, and I’ll often have a small purse and then a tote bag that can actually fit bigger items. I always try to have a tape measure in case I need to communicate a measurement to a factory or check on something. A pen and pencil always come in handy, and I keep a planner with me because I just prefer to write things down instead of taking notes on my phone. I always have some sort of lip balm, usually Biopel.
I love tiny purses but they usually work better for evening- I try to take as little as possible at night. My best friend has a note by her door that says “wallet-phone-keys”, and I try to stick to that for evening, but I’ll maybe add lip balm to it.”
