What's In Your Bag?

What's In Your Bag?

What's in my bag


People come in the shop all the time asking what they can fit in a Valere Rene tote, so I thought I would show you all what's in  my purse. So, here it goes - "What's In Your Bag 2016." Oh geez, this is going to be fun.


Lip glosses 


The first thing that I find in my Chambray  Jillian Tote is my Jane Iredale Lip Fixation in "Fetish" from Crown Beauty Bar. I also have Younique Lucrative Lip Gloss in Lovesick and Bath and Body Works Mentha Lip Tint in "Magenta Mint." I keep all of these in the outer pocket for easy access. It is hard to choose a favorite, so I keep all three with me at all times so I have lots of options!


Valere Rene Bags


In the main part of the Tote, I find all my Valere Rene bags, and there's a lot of them. I use the Red Buffalo Plaid Wristlet as my wallet, carrying my ID, credit cards, business cards, and occasionally my phone. The Buffalo was a hit last fall, so keep a look out for the hit flannel next season (coming in July!). Then I find my Medium Cosmetic Bag in Chambray to match my Tote. I carry this bag with me filled with miscellaneous medications (because you never know when someone will get sick). I carry my bank bag with me always; I made quite a few when our brick and mortar first opened to give to some of my small business owner friends. It is a lot cuter than the plastic bags the bank gives out. Finally, I have my clutch with a tassel. I'm still tweaking the design on this one, but it should be able for you to shop soon!


Glasses cases


Next, I have my favorite Ran Ban sunglasses. The aviators are so classic and fun, so I always have them with me. I also keep my Gucci eyeglass case on hand so I can store my glasses without scratching them up. 


Miscellaneous items in my bag


Now I'm about to the bottom of the massive mess that is my Tote. I finally find my keys with a Rabbit Key Charm, which makes my keys a little more visible (and fun!). You can purchase a charm at our store in Rogers. I find essential oils that I purchased forever ago and never took out; there's also I random comb in there that I don't even remember getting. I find my favorite Smart Wool socks (I know it's summer, don't judge) and my inhaler (so glamorous). At the very bottom I have miscellaneous receipts (who doesn't), a shopping list for the shop, and business checkbooks. 


Even with all this stuff in my Tote, it is only halfway full! I still have room to fit my computer in my laptop sleeve and probably another cosmetic bag or two. The Jillian Tote is amazing because it is stylish while still being functional!
