What’s in my Fashion Week Handbag? Michael Kors Selma review

World Mastercard Fashion Week kicks off today, and I am excited to bring reviews and fashion week coverage to my blog. I also wanted to share a little bit of behind-the-scenes action, including what people are wearing and how I prepare for a week-long schedule of events. Besides my DSLR and heels, there’s one other thing I can’t live without… and that’s a large structured bag filled to the brim with “fashion week essentials.” Here’s a peek inside my Michael Kors Selma bag.

I like to tote around a large structured bag. The Michael Kors Selma is perfect because it is large, functional and very neutral in this grey python colour. I love that it can fit my DSLR as well as everything I need when I’m in the tents all day.

First and foremost, my iPhone 5 is always with me. From instagramming the runway to beauty updates, I love how it takes amazing pictures. A cute case is a must too, this leopard one is by J. Crew. I never want to run out of battery and miss a snap either, so a pocket backup battery is a good idea.

Sometimes I feel like I’m carrying my whole emergency beauty kit with me. My eyes can get dry after a long day, so eye drops and contact solution are always in my bag. Band-aids are also a must to prevent any blisters after walking around in heels all day! I also bring my Neutrogena powder foundation, and touch up with hot pink YSL Rouge Volupte lipstick. No one likes having lipstick on their teeth, so I carry a slim pack of Kleenex tissues for blotting… this will help avoid any awkward lipstick-on-teeth moments.whats in my bag

I love how Kleenex slim packs now come in all these cute designs! I can even match them to what bag or outfit I’m wearing! You can check out more info and find your favourite design on the Kleenex Style page.

I also like to carry around a notebook to take notes on shows, and my mint day planner to keep me organized! I usually use iCal, but there’s something about writing things down that makes things stick.

My Kate Spade wallet holds my cash, while my Miu Miu sunglasses add a bit of glam to a look. I also like to carry a cute card case, this black baroque one by Anna Sui does triple duty as it holds my blog cards, has a mirror and I can also fit some blotting papers to erase any shine.

Lastly, gum and snacks are a must. I love these chocolate covered dried fruits. They are the perfect sugar fix when you’re tired from walking around in heels all day!
