A lady’s bag can be a scary place. Most guys I know wouldn’t dare look into a lady’s bag, preferring instead, to pass the bag to it’s owner for her to rummage through if he wants something from it.
My bag is a private space. I only let my closest friends poke through my bag and only with prior permission.
When I read about the “What’s In My Bag?” bloggers’ colab, my immediate thought was “Oh gawd, what IS in my bag?”. Funny enough, I have owned this bag for just over 24 hours. I haven’t had time to mess it up.

It appears that I kinda like the colour red. OK, fine, I might have an obsession with the colour red.
Red Red Riot!….RIOT!
My $25 red canvas bag died a few weeks ago and on Thursday, I ordered a new bag from Oh My Bag.
Oh My Bag is a Christchurch-based online store that sells affordable leather bags in a carefully curated range of styles. They offer free shipping and are having a pre-Christmas sale: 20% off all stock. I couldn’t resist their Riot bag in red (also available in tan) at a bargain ($135.20NZ) so I treated myself to a Christmas present.
My bag arrived the very next morning! I was super stoked. It is a great design, the perfect size for carrying all my stuff and such a beautiful colour. If you remember my lengthy post on leather bags, you might remember I’m CRAZY about pockets. This bag has seven pockets: 2 outer slip pockets with magnetic closure, 1 large outer zip pocket and 4 pockets inside the main compartment (2 slip, 2 zip). I haven’t figured out what I’m allocating all these pockets to yet, but I love the challenge.
I took my bag out for a walk this morning and couldn’t resist taking a peek every time I walked past a reflective surface. Nothing makes a girl feel more girly than a new bag 🙂
I’m excited to share this collaboration with bloggers from #brunchclub, a member’s only Facebook group of New Zealand bloggers. Jessica from J&J blog came up with the idea where we all post the contents of our bags at the same time, so if you like being nosey about what other people keep in their bags, be sure to check the links to other bloggers participating below.
I hope you enjoyed this bit of handbag voyeurism!
