The Relentless Purse-Uit of Power

As a New Yorker who’s constantly, blessedly on the go, my long days are powered by just a precious few things, most notably coffee (iced, with real sugar and half & half, please), my Metrocard and my handbag.

Everything I need to go from breakfast meeting to evening cocktails is tucked inside my purse, but at the same time I do my best to carry just the essentials, essentially just what you see below: 

  • Rebecca Minkoff Circle Quilt Swing in Cement is small, but roomy
  • Linea Pelle Dylan Zipper Wallet– I’m obsessed with the soft leather, bright purple color and amazing zip detail!
  • Headphones (the Spotify app keeps a spring in my step)
  • Jalda Croc Embossed Business Card Case, with both business and blog cards (you never know who you might meet – #ABM, my friends)
  • Norma Kamali Square Cat Eye Sunglasses (in case)
  • Mophie Juice Pack Reserve Portable iPhone Charger (must, must, must!)
  • Sheets Energy Strips in Cinnamon Rush
  • Band-Aid Brand Blister Block (I do my best to choose comfortable shoes, but you never know.)
  • Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in a pop color like Lovesick (a bright lip color can make a look in an instant, and this formula is foolproof!)
  • iPhone!

I’m curious – what are the essentials in your purse? If you’re down to share, join ELLE & Revlon in The Purse-Uit of Power on Facebook, and you’ll have the chance to win a uniquely curated designer power purse (each is valued at $3,000!) online, or dropped at a very special pop-up event in the real world.

Pay close attention, peeps, because clues to the bag drop location will be revealed exclusively on Revlon's Facebook page and you’ll also be able to play an instant win game daily for products.  Each time you play, you’ll be entered to win the afore-mentioned ELLE-approved designer bag, chock full of goodies that include Revlon products.

Good luck in YOUR ‘Purse-Uit of power’ – may the force be with you, ladies!
