Per @hollis' request.
  1. First of all, here's my purse
    370321 7ccaaf21 aa89 4bb5 90c4 d225308e101b
    It's my first grown-up lady bag, and the largest one I've ever owned. I'm constantly losing things inside it because I'm still not used to having so much space to navigate.
  2. Wallet
    370331 00e0b432 ced9 4b7f b02f c955b71df38e
    A woman whose child I nannied for when I was in college gave this to me for my 21st birthday, in 2003. It's beaten up, but still great.
  3. Sunglasses
    370341 a162b69c ed4c 4b1e be91 4c3c527b6744
    $14, no name brand. Buying expensive sunglasses is pretty much a guarantee that I will lose/step on/otherwise ruin them.
  4. A copy of my second cookbook
    370351 44ee706f becc 4013 8ae6 acbad7261137
    A literary agent I'm friends with told me once that I should always have a copy of my most recent book on me. It has come in handy a few times, though I admit to feeling a little silly saying, "Actually, if you'd like to see it, I have a copy in my bag..."
  5. A book to read
    370361 6aba1363 efcf 4aa3 aced 10ff241084cc
    This one is big and heavy (and very good), but I'd rather read a physical copy of it than a digital one, so I schlep it with me.
  6. Lipstick
    370371 e5f813a4 06ce 4c16 9a0b 7c2f5b689d5e
    Yves St. Laurent, #203. It's not the kind of thing I would ever spend money on, but a friend gave it to me for my birthday last year and when I put it on, I feel 99x more sophisticated.
  7. Portable phone charger
    370381 13b0ae0f acf7 441f 99a6 4fdf9437c8e6
    One of the best purchases @evan has ever made.
