My It-bag

I've always known that my first gift to myself to celebrate the success of my novel (which has yet to
be finished published) would be a classic quilted Chanel 2.55 purse. In black, please. I've never really fantasized on a particular bag from a particular brand, and I am more likely to be attracted to the design and shape of the bag rather than the label, be it H&M, Forever21, Zara or a slightly more upscale brand.

So a while ago when I was at Express and discovered that they had a purse almost identical to my Chanel fantasy, I immediately bought it for myself. I love the high quality of the leather, and the simple yet terribly elegant design. And also the fact that it goes with absolutely everything, from skinny jeans and a tee-shirt to a an evening outfit (little black dress and high heels for me).

Of course, I don't wear it all the time, since I am the type of girl who needs to carry a lot of things with her, including (more recently) a pouch containing magic crystals, talismans and tarot cards (explains my back and shoulder pains). But when I'm off for shopping, a walk in town, or a date and don't feel like carrying my huge tote and all its contents with me, I take this beauty instead. It has enough room for my phone, keys, Estée Lauder compact foundation, lip balm, iPad mini (or a notebook!), one or two lucky crystals. I choose not to carry my wallet in it but instead put my ID and credit card and cash in the inside pocket. 

I'd love to know, what is your favourite bag? And why?
