3. Foundation - If there's any make up you should be splurging on, it would be a good foundation!

10 Must-Have Pieces To Keep In Your Purse


So, if you're anything like us, we have a tendency to carry a lot of stuff. Like, Mary Poppins' style. It's the sorority girl in us! But, in all reality, you can survive without all the junk you throw in your trunk (yeah, at this point it's not a purse, it's a trunk!). We decided it's time to clean out our purses and narrow it down to the essentials. Below is our list of the ten (10) must-have pieces to keep in your purse.
  1. Lip gloss. Not a bazillion flavors, just narrow it down to a gloss and maybe a solid chapstick. We are fans of Burt's Bees and the Mint flavored Bigelow lip gloss. Oh and EOS lip balms are pretty nice!
  2. A mirror. You've got to be able to apply your lipstick (and discreetly check out your crush..hehe).  This Hello Kitty pocket mirror is just the cutest!
  3. Headphones. You never know when you're going to need to isolate yourself from your neighbor and bang out to some music. The Beats by Dre hot pink headphones are legit and we like simple headphones too like these Skull Candy ones.
  4. Medicine. Headaches, that "time of the month"...they just can creep in out of nowhere so you want to be able to tackle them head on.
  5. Listerine Strips or Gum. Everyone has a stint of bad breath every once in a while. Come equipped when you pack the bad breath killers.
  6. Bobby pins. Even though chances are you will lose them miraculously once they enter your purse, it's nice to know you have it there.
  7. Safety pins. You never know when you will have a wardrobe malfunction.
  8. Hair ties. One of your friends is bound to ask you for one. We actually really love the hair ties from France Luxe/ L. Erickson. They are incredibly cute and incredibly durable!
  9. Phone charger.  Honestly, this should be like #1! We have upgraded to carrying the Mophie for optimal phone battery life. It's a great investment and a serious lifesaver! 
  10. A solid wallet. Keep all of your money and cards and gift cards in one place with a nice, durable wallet. Wallets are the best investment. Kate Spade and Michael Kors make some of the cutest wallets.

It Girl Trend Report: Handbag Essentials


All of us girls keep little treasures in our purse that we can't live without.  Hey, who knows what you might need at a moment's notice?  Gotta be prepared!  We talked to our It Girls, and were curious to see what handbag essentials they coveted the most.  Now, for an exclusive peek inside their handbags...

Alyx:  "This is a great hand sanitizer that contains lemon oil.  I also love this small Altoids tin, because it fits in any size purse."

Rachel:  "These are my favorite sunglasses hands down.  I never leave the house without my Ray Ban wayfarers!"

Victoria: "I have so much trust in Bobbi Brown Cosmetics- it was the first makeup I started wearing when I turned 13.  This palette that I keep in my purse is perfect... if you're looking tired, you can use it on your lips and cheeks.  It brightens up your whole look, for effortless beauty!"

Serena: "I chose these because this is my signature bag-- my sisters know me by my bright pink purse.  I always carry lipstick and bobby pins in case of a beauty emergency.  I feel like lipstick can really transform a look.  I try to carry a few different colors so I can pick one suited to the situation-- I usually have a nude, a soft pink, and a statement color.  Right now, I'm really into coral on my lips!  It's really handy when I go out last minute and wanna kick my look up a notch."

Marisa: "I keep my mascara, called Fairy Drops, in my purse.  This mascara has fibers that attach to your eyelashes, which acts like extensions.  Perfect for going out on last minute notice!"

There you have it!  Our It Girls keep their purses stocked with all sorts of things, to be prepared for life as it comes.  What necessity do you keep in your purse at all times?

Looking for the perfect accessory to add to your colorful outfit?  We fell in love with Ali's purse from Hearts (um, how cute is that geometric pattern?!) and you can get it too with our secret steal.  Hearts was so kind to extend a 30% discount to our readers, using code TSS30 at checkout.  Another reason to fall in love with Hearts?  They are cruelty free, and promote sustainable fashion.  We're all for it!
