Hi-ho, guys. Welcome to the first post in a series where I dig through other people’s junk. Snooping is one of my favorite pastimes, dating back 20 years ago when my sister and I would beg our babysitter to let us dump her purse out onto the carpet so we could play around with what she had. I plan on forcing many friends, relatives and strangers to allow me to do this in the future…we’ll see how that goes.

Christine, 30, Portland Ore., Advertising


About the bag:


” Right now, I carry a leather and suede Vince Camuto tote. I got it for Christmas from my dad a few years ago and it’s my favorite sturdy, carry-all sort of bag. The only downside to it is that the mixed material and heavy hardware weigh it down a lot, even when it’s empty.”

About what’s inside:



“Dog Poopy Bags! For my Chug Peanut Pierre, who’s always with me.”

“The YSL case is actually holding Chili Beans Sunglasses….I lost the YSL’s at a Halloween store and I’m still super sad about that.”

“Oh God! My traffic violation is in here. I moved to Oregon 11 days ago from L.A., and have already managed to get a ticket.”

“I love Rebecca Minkoff, like, a lot. My makeup bag is the Ipsy Rebecca Minkoff deal and the wallet is from her line also.”
