Practicality - in a aesthetic point of view

I don't now about you, but I for sure always find it interesting to see what people have in their bags. This is what normally follows me on my daily (motherly) adventures!

Hermés 30 & Louis Vuitton Alma BB
- Hair brush
- Agenda from Hermés
- Wallet from Chanel
- Little black purse for pills and small things
- Shades from Celiné
- Key ring from Dior
- Pen from Montblanc
- Lipstick Tom Ford and pen: Esteé Lauder

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. I am looking for a easy , no frill small bag to fit just my key essentials. Do you recommend the LV alma bb or the chanel wallet on chain ?

    1. Well, the question is more:

      Budget. A Chanel 2.55 is three times double the amount. If you're not referring to the Chanel WOC which is the same price.

      Time frame: A Chanel bag is always a Chanel bag. I'm quite bored of them for the moment, but I have worn them for about ten years already, so go with your gut feeling. But If you can afford a Chanel, I would say that it's the best investment for the long run! The WOC is also very cute and you can wear the strap short, medium or long which i like on mine. For a daily use in my life, it's although too small as you might have figured our with this post.

      Model: The Chanel 2.55 is more rectangular in model and the Alma is more like a half moon. I would say I fit more things into the Alma BB which is why I love it so much. The Chanel WOC is what it's name after: A Wallet On Chain, so it will only fit your keys, lipstick, cash and credit cards.

      So, with these three components I hope you can chose!

      Best,

  4. Dear Stina,
    I consider to buy a alma BB (I own some Chanel und vuitton bags for years, but not an Alma yet). I like your alma BB in cyan but also the black is nice.
    I am not sure which colour to choose. Blue is nice, very IN now. My Chanel bags are all black.
    What do you think? Epi or Vernis?
    Would love to hear your opinion.

    Thanks,
    E.

    1. EPI!!!!

      I have the biggest Alma in Vernis and I regret taking it in it! Epi is so much more cool and settled and without all monograms!

      Have you seen the crocodile ... But not worth the money of course!

      I would love it in purple but they don't make it. Try the orange? Or dark blue?

      Good luck and let me know which one you chose!

      Best,
      stina

  10. I love your new Birkin! May I ask what color it is? 30 cm is such a great size! Linda

  11. That key ring is really elegant:)
    In my bag there's much of the same as the rest of you girls; my prada wallet, LV agenda, a good pen, Dior lipstick and Elisabeth Arden 8hour cream, tissues, gloves (always cold), painkillers, my phone, and very soon my favorite hairbrush mason Pearson, which I'm purchasing in a pocket size -perfect for any purse. I often also have a small snack/energy bar:)

    I know you've done a makeup-post before, that you don't usually wear that much makeup and also that it's so individual what kind of colors and products that fit with each and every one of us. But once you'll find time, can't you give us a little hint of your favorite beauty products and colors. For instance, your lip color is always so nice, and hence how to supplement it with a liner, your favorite nail polishes etc:)
    Have a great Friday evening with your boys :*

    1. I agree with you Johanne. I am crazy about skincare and makeup (nothing garish, I like a natural look) but I am always curious to know about other women's beauty routine and products. In fact, I am more interested in Stina's beauty posts than her fashion posts, because it is her beauty which makes it all come together! That said, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and beauty can be 'bought'/'manufactured'. For example, people tell me I have beautiful eyes so I always emphasize them with eyeliner. For this reason I always carry a soft kohl pencil in my bag to refresh my look. My sister is always praised for her lips so she always carries many lip products to refresh her sexy lip look during the day. I also have oily skin so I carry powder and tissue. (I also have a strict regimen - cleanse and moisturise morning and night). Sorry if this reply is shallow but I truly believe that being 'attractive' or 'beautiful' on the superficial level/outside really helps to pull off an entire look! Because it's all about confidence and being comfortable in one's skin! (and hair and weight...) Interested in your opinions on this, everyone... (beauty, weight & fashion...) many hugs

  12. Congratulations on your new bag, The color of that Birkin is Amazing!! It's the color I want but with gold hardware (it is Gris tourterelle right?). I always thought that 30 was a bit small but it actually looks good (might be because it's "in" with smaller bags now a days)! Well I'd be glad with any size lol, I'm actually considering to bribe a SA at Hermes as that seems to be the only way to get a hold of one hahahaha, so annoying that they keep insisting on lists that doesn't even exist!!

  13. Dear Johanne, may I ask you which color your Prada wallet has? I wanted to buy one, but I couldn't decide ;-) B.

    1. Of course lovely! When I bought it I was hesitating between black, off white and orange. I was very close to getting the orange one as it sticks out and truly is a beautiful color (this was two seasons back). I'm not really a stick out-person, just from time to time when I get something over me, while black was kinda "too normal", so I went for the off white (it's more light light beige, but not with a hint of brown) hoping it would stay off white forever. I assumed it wasn't the best choice color wise, but I've actually been able to keep the nice color and it still looks almost like new. Prada wallets are really long lasting and I love the simplicity they provide. I also like Stina's Chanel:) Good luck on your choice, let's know which color you end up with!! Xx J

  15. Ho ! I just have seen your answer about the iphone cover and I thank you very much to want to give me the internet address but it's ok I am not a big fan to order by internet following from where it comes.
    I am very old fashion with that everybody laughs about me!
    Thanks again. Uta

  16. P.s. I will take another credit card only for internet very very soon. Because it's ridiculous nowadays not ordering by internet... But it really depends from which country it comes because if clothes have to be returned, sometimes its too complicate. I had a very bad experience one day! But sure I will soon do it! Hugs. Uta
