What’s In My Handbag: Saying Hello to the LG G3

whats in my handbag
It has been quite some time (and quite a few handbags) since I last conducted a blog tour of my day-to-day haul around town.

Since then, my business has grown aggressively, my tech kit has taken on a life of its own, and this beautiful double-zipped handbag from Pied a Terre has found its rightful place on my arm.

What’s In My Handbag?

Front compartment:
To be frank, this post is mostly an excuse to gush about the new LG G3. While my keys, passport, rail card and multiple Oyster cards all serve their purpose, my star of my handbag is the new LG G3. In my opinion, it is far superior to every other smartphone on the market.

Though a full video review of the G3 will be coming (you have to see some of the features to understand just how groundbreaking and intuitive the smartphone is), two of the main reasons I love it are:
- The camera (the 13-megapixel camera has laser auto focus and dual LED flash!)
- The weight (with the amount of stuff I need to tote around during a work day, having a slimline device that lets me control my inboxes, Google Drive, social media, photos, and more – all on a quad HD display – is incredible).

With all that said, just stay tuned for the full review!

Rear compartment:
To keep everything neat and tidy, I use a small silver purse to hold my cards (front pocket), business cards (main pocket) and money. I then use a slightly larger gold purse to hold my ‘diabetes paraphernalia’, L’Occitane hand cream, and go-to lip products (a day and night red lip, as it were).

Outside of the purses I have my blue mirror-lensed Guess sunglasses and a cookies and cream Quest Bar, leaving the small zip compartment for receipts and tissues.

Obviously, the first compartment totally wins.

Not pictured: my laptop (only in the handbag during business hours) and SLR (though the bag has plenty of room for it, I have no desire to lug it around town when I’m not specifically out to take photos).

What I Wore – Heels of The Year

sargossa heels
Most women have a very personal take on the criteria which quantifies an ‘acceptable’ heel. Depending on the occasion, most ladies choose to spend their day in a heel under three inches tall (if they choose a heel at all).

Try as I might, it is simply impossible to spend a day in anything thin, tall, or (sigh) shoegasm worthy.

Except for these babies. These ‘Heels of The Year’ (courtesy of Lela London’s completely unofficial and ongoing blog awards) are four inches tall, super glossy, and extraordinarily comfortable thanks to Sargossa‘s patent-pending insole technology. In fact, I was able to spend a total of thirty minutes hopping and skipping over cobblestones and steep roads on an evening. Sargossa insoles are no joke.

Only problem? Now I want the entire line (I don’t think any hashtag quite explains my life like #tremblingbankcard).

What I Wore:
Sargossa Inspire Nude heels
White dress (old school, similar here)
Saint Laurent Ligne Y Chain (similar here)

What I Wore – The Pretty Little Clash (Onepiece and Skullcandy)

onepiece
I’m all about ‘investment pieces’. It is the basis of all the work I did as a personal stylist and something I sincerely believe in.

All the way down to my onesies.

I dare you to try and find something more satisfying than rolling around in bed for a few hours while listening to some Paolo Nutini and clashing all the prints you can get your hands on.

What I Wore:
The (intentionally) paint-splattered Onepiece (The discount code LELALONDON will get you 15% off until August 4th! Hooray!)
Floral Knockouts from Skullcandy

What I Wore – Brooks Brothers and Pop Tarts

This is what happens when you let an American loose in England – she recklessly hops and skips around town wearing collegiate Brooks Brothers whites and Pop Tarts accessories.

(I swear, they’d kick me out if I wasn’t addicted to Game of Thrones.)

What I Wore:
Petite non-iron white shirt from Brooks Brothers
Neon skirt (out of season, similar here)
Dolce and Gabbana sunglasses
Pop Tarts case as a clutch (bought last year in the US)
Citizen Drive watch
Neon heels (out of season, similar here)

What I Wore – Throwback with New Look

throwback new look
With the idea that every girl has a ‘Throwback’ dress in their wardrobe that they can’t get rid of (from the ones you wear in and out, to the ones you just love to look at!), New Look recently challenged me to swap my own personal Throwback for a New Look dress that could fit the bill for years to come.

The thing is, I am a Hardcore Dress Girl. Every dress that lives in my closet has been carefully selected to make me feel confident, beautiful, and…like myself. From sparkles, to florals, to the ones you can’t eat bread in, I never get rid of dresses.

This means – in The Case of The Throwback – my challenge was not to swap a favourite out for a new favourite, but to to find a dress that I’d want to hold on to forever…

(…as I’m convinced I should have spent the last 24 years in the 1960s, nothing seemed like a better choice than this classic, pretty swing.)

What I Wore:
This snazzy little swing dress from New Look
