What bag are you carrying?

How many bags do you have?
Eight handbags and five clutches.
Where do you buy your bags?
Almost all of my bags are from the States except for my kikapu bags. I will soon be designing my own bags.
Do you change bags often?
It depends on how busy my day is. I prefer to carry this bag when I have a lot of errands like going fabric shopping. I carry a casual bigger bag when meeting up with friends.
What’s your bag style?
I like vintage styles like this one. I like colour and most of my kikapu bags are vibrant in colour. I also prefer small bags.
What do you like about the bag you’re carrying?
It’s very strong and fits everything I need. It’s also easy to carry around.
What would you never leave the house without?
My sunglasses and tape measure
What’s in your bag today?
Lady Speed stick deodorant, Mary Kay eye shadow, black eye pencil, MAC studio fix, Lash mascara, spare earrings, powder brush, Nokia phone, sunglasses, Diamonds & Emeralds perfume body lotion, tape measure, MAC Studio Tech foundation, wallet, Nivea glossy lip care, Black Opal loose powder. eyeshadow and house keys.
