What Clare Vivier bag is currently in your wardrobe rotation?
I am alternating between my new eggplant duffel bag (available at the CV store) and my oversize cognac clutch.
What is your favorite style of Clare Vivier Bag?
Tough question. I love the duffel and the messenger, especially for traveling because I can stuff all of my goodies into them. I also love the clutches for travel because they’re good for stashing all my receipts.
Empty that bag. What’s inside?
Apparently I’m a hoarder. Clare Vivier leopard wallet – it’s 2012 and I still carry a checkbook, so this comes in handy; sunnies; business card holder that sometimes has my business cards if I can remember to keep it filled; pesos from a recent Mexico City trip; my handy Square; Odile Gilbert hair pin; a rubber band in case the pin fails me; Kahina Argan oil; baby Altoids; baby gum; some Mexican souvenirs that I want to make into necklaces; my cell phone; a Staples $25 off card; and about 437 lipsticks and lip balms.
What is the one item we will always find in your bag?
Lipstick. That and a few pennies sitting at the bottom.
