A Fresh Dille

bag & bliss.

Posted in Uncategorized by clairedille on February 16, 2009


sweet potato fries, A Magazine # 1 (curated by Maison Martin Margiela) spread with Jane Birkin.


I was “bag tagged” by the lovely Brooke, and here is the bag that I have been carrying. The size of my Marc by Marc Jacobs Hillier Hobo is perfect for my day to day needs and a few magazines, which is one of my qualifications when choosing the right day bag. This bag is from the spring collection and I find the blue to add a little more excitement to my outfit than the basic black bag. Inside, I carry all sorts of goodies and here they are…


old tortoise ray bans from my mom, black cashmere beret/ beanie, oscar blandi dry shampoo , top coat nail polish, bond no. 9 perfume samples, burt’s bees pomegranate chapstick and cuticle cream, one nail polish remover pad, one green tea, an elephant necklace, random red ring (with a game in it?) from new years popper, my passport (always have with me), mints, neue gallerie and metropolitan museum pins, coco red chanel lipstick, smashbox cream liners and brush, vintage red wallet, moleskin journal, two pens, my blackberry, and bobby pins.

There it all is! Sometimes I try to consolidate more but I do carry a lot with me.


More Fall/Winter ready-to-wear talk tonight…

    hey brooke-y

    I found that moleskin at kates paperie in manhattan but I think that if you amazon.com moleskin you can find ALL the sizes. I know that some can be found at Border’s too. I totally forgot to play by the bag rules….but I am not too good at sticking to rules anyway…I hope you don’t care!

    I am so overwhelmed with nyfw that I took a hiatus from looking at all the shows and even my twitter where I get crazy nymag and nytimes updates from the shows.

    love the 80s raybans…they are a little heavy though. and my mom was given that A mag by some of the designers that work under MM, so fun. the sweet potatoes were done at a really high temp (450) for a short amount of time. I couldn’t even guess how long cause I was standing in the kitchen on my cell the whole time, ha.

    ciao b.
