What’s in my new Clare V bag?

clare vivier, sugar paper, louis vuitton, kate spade, buxom, loccitane


When my mom and I were in LA a few weeks ago, I made sure to visit the Clare Vivier store. I had been looking for a new crossbody handbag for fall. Since I love her clutches so much, I wanted to check out some other options. I ended up splurging on the grey moyen messenger! Grey is a perfect neutral for fall and I know I’ll use it often.


Since it is a little smaller than other totes, I’ve had to downsize. I thought it’d be fun to share my must have items that survived the downsizing.

Wallet – my wallet was a gift from a trip to Switzerland a couple of years ago. We were in a little mountain town called Crans-Montana, which happened to have a Louis Vuitton store. Every time I use it, I’m reminded of that trip.

Pen and notepad – I always carry a notepad and pen, preferably in a fun color. You never know when you’ll need to make a list!

Hand lotion, lip treatment, lip gloss – this hand lotion is the best. Perfect size, great scents and does the job. I had super dry and chapped lips earlier this year and tried a million products. The Aquaphor lip treatment with SPF was the only one that worked. My mom gave me the Buxom lip gloss in Trixie several years ago. I’ll stray and try something new once in awhile, but I always go back to this one.

Business cards – you never know when you’ll make a connection!

Pouch – I received the Kate Spade pouch as a holiday gift. It’s the perfect size to hold all of my gift cards. That way I have them with me whenever the need to make a purchase strikes! I get so many compliments on this pouch whenever I pull it out. Plus it adds a little glittery fun to my bag!

iPhone – this one is a no brainer. Does anyone leave home without their phone?! I’d never find my way around town without it.


What do you make sure to carry at all times?
