Current Obsessions That Are Likely To Be Carried In My  Stella And Max Thrift Bag!
Sharing A Few Thrift Bits and Favorites of What's Really In The Thrift Bag?

So, a funny thing happened last week while snooping at the thrift store. I stumbled across a rare 

handbag that I later found out it was a Stella and Max genuine handbag. Can you believe I got it for under 20 buckaroos? I usually never pay that much when it is a secondhand bag, but I fell deeply in love with the 70's vibe and multi-colors. 

Since I am working on building myself a pre-loved thrift-drobe, I am happy when I stumble across unique items that fit my lifestyle. So, the next time you are out and stop at a thrift store, look for handbags that speak your type of style. After a quick google search, I found this exact patchwork handbag priced at $85 and up. 
There is no doubt in my mind I found a diamond in the rough. 
Honestly, I can not believe there were no tares nor scratches on any parts of my new to me second-hand purse. The strap and buckling were in tack as well. Those are the things I look for before spending any amounts of money on a thrift handbag.
Over the years, I've had a few misses here and there, but luckily my eyes have gotten keen when it comes to finding a fake.
After cleaning my new found treasure with a leather cleaner, it was ready to hold all my unusual items.
I tend to switch my purses out often, so each one will hold something a bit different.
First: I have my usual keys, wallet, bank, and credit cards.

Body Spray in my Patch bag from the thrift store.Thrift Bits and Favorites
 At the bottom of my Stella and Max bag, I keep a can of body spray. Sometimes, when I go to the gym, I will shower there before work. So, it is no secret I need a little cologne on stand by. I chose to carry a spray instead of taking my more expensive fragrances around. Yes, I also have a tiny travel size deodorant as well. These items seem large, but they fit perfectly in my bag.

After all these years, I have finally found a nail polish that does not break, chip, or peel off. But, since I am a hairstylist, I am always on the hunt for the best polishes to use. And I have finally gound my matches that last for days even in-between hair washes. I keep my LA colors black and clear polish in a zip lock bag just in case I have an accident. Who else keeps polishes in there every day carry around purse.

One thing I always have to have is my favorite lipstick, just in case I need to touch up my lip color. This week it is my new Milani pink, and I am absolutely in love with it. I also have a tiny tube of chapstick as well to combat this windy Texas weather. #drylips is a no Bueno. :}
Hand lotion Baby Johnson and Johnson kept in my Stella and Max thrifted handbag. Thrift Bits and Favorites
To fight my dry hand, I keep some type of travel-size hand lotion in my purse at all times. Most of my friends and family know they can ask me for hand lotion when they are experiencing dry skin.

Make-up wipes kept inside Stella and Max handbag. Thrift Bits and Favorites
This next item that I carry is a must at all times, no matter what purse I switch out and wear. I keep a small size of make-up wipes to remove my face at the end of the day. When I leave work, it is normal for me to be in traffick for 1 to 2 hours in the evening. So, while in rush hour traffic, I will grab my handy dandy makeup wipes out of my bag and clean my face. Yes, it is a temporary fix, but I feel so much better when I can semi-clean my face before getting home.
Everyone hand sanitizer kept inside  my Stella and Max purse. Thrift Bits and Favorites
Last but not least is my favorite item to have out of everything. I am a busy gal, and I am always touching people and heads all day long. When I leave work sometimes, I go to the grocery store before actually getting home. So, I keep hand sanitizer at all times. Everyone lemon and coconut are my jam, and I keep it right in my purse. I use it on my hand s and to wipe down store buggies.
