Talbots Giveaway: What’s In Your Bag?

The lovely folks over at Talbots gifted me with a beautiful handbag that will be perfect for spring, and I’ve decided to offer it up as a giveaway to you guys!

First, let’s take a peek inside my own purse for a minute, shall we?


For the past week I’ve been carrying my Kate Spade Sullivan Street Blakely tote, which is great for lugging around this mess.

(1) The new issues of Marie Claire and GQ for subway reading. I know I’m not the only girl who loves reading men’s style mags!  (2) My iPhone aka the best thing to ever happen to me. (3) Coach wallet with handy attached keychain. Handy until I lock myself out of my apartment without any money or ID. Trust me, it’s happened before. Twice. (4) Talbots lookbook to put the finishing touches on my collection review.  (5) iPod nano. I’ve been listening to a lot of Vampire Weekend and She & Him (preview their new album here) lately. They just feel like spring. (6) Moleskine planner and a couple of my favorite pens.  (7) Camera case. I’m always snapping pictures of things that interest me around the city.  (8) Glasses. You’ve seen me nerding out in them before.  (9) Thrifted tortoiseshell wayfarers. (10) Umbrella. You never know when it will start raining these days…

Now, back to the giveaway part! This is the brand new canvas and leather bag from Talbots that’s up for grabs…
