1. I once belonged to a purse addicts board where we shared and photographed the contents in our bag (bag included in the picture, of course). The rule was that we couldn't "stage" the picture; whatever was inside your bag at the moment, you left it there and photographed it. Many ladies also included a list of the contents. Needless to say, it was a LOT of fun and gave everyone a little peek at who we are. You can do this as many times as you want. Perhaps we can make this a daily/weekly/monthly routine!

    I'll post my picture later since it is still early here. Your bag does not have to be an Hermes, of course! Since I post here frequently, I thought I'd start the thread here.

    Okay, spill it! :biggrin:
  2. This sounds like fun! Will have to post later though- need my husband to return with camera!!!
  3. Great idea!

    I think if it's not only Hermes bags but other bags, it should be in the section "Handbags and Purses".
  4. Good point LaVan!
  5. I think since this isn't related to Hermes, I'll move it to General Discussion if you don't mind.
  6. Fair enough! :biggrin:
  7. My pic will come tomorrow! Have you seen the book by Kate Spade which I believe is called "Contents"? It has women who dump their purse and list everything, and in the back is the pic of the purse separate - it's pretty neat - I think there are 2 Hermes bags included;
  8. since speedy is a blackhole i had to cheat and dump everything out. i also dumped out my makeup bag. but that's the only staging. i didn't add or subtract anything except my cell to take the picture with. :smile:

    if this thread is supposed to tell who we are, it succeeded...i'm a mess!!! :smile:

  9. ^^ wow ilzabet you fit all that in yr speedy?? bf has the digital cam this weekend so i'm just viewing...!
  10. Fekkai glossing cream - love that stuff!!!

    You certainly can survive on a deserted island if all you had with you was your speedy and all of its contents!!! Thanks for sharing!
  11. brownpaperbag - i just discovered it! it's so nice for the frizzies on the ends of my hair or smoothing out ponytail kinks and reviving curls. :love:

    hehe. usually, on top of all that stuff i have a paperback and a liter of water floating around. but i just finished my novel a couple days ago and haven't started a new one and the liter of water is sitting next to me at the computer. :smile: and if i have to work more than 6 hours, there's another make up bag with my actual makeup (blush, powder, eyeshadow, etc.)

    it's quite sad really. :smile: but this is why i love speedy so so much. i always broke other purses and could never zip them b/c there's so much stuff in there. :smile:
  12. That reminds me of the scene in The Breakfast Club where Ally Sheedy's character dumps all this stuff out of her bag and it seems never-ending.The guys says "why do you have so much sh*t in your purse?" and she says something like "you never know when you'll have to run away".
  13. wow ilzabet! haha.. in my bbag right now, i have a makeup bag, a planner, wallet, key holder with keys, burts bee lip balm, mac lipglass gloss, a highlighter and two pens :smile:
  14. Ilzabet, how did you ever fit all that stuff into your speedy LOL
