sass of style

For the bold and expressive girl.

Living in a city where you generally only use your apartment to sleep can only lead to strategic purse packing. There are a few things that I never leave my apartment without and I wanted to let you guys in on what I haul around everyday.

Item #1: An umbrella. If the forecast has the slightest chance of rain you bet I’m packing this necessity.

Item #2: Your go-to lipstick. You never know when your friend is going to text you last minute to meet up for dinner or drinks. This will dress you up in a second and you won’t feel like you look like garbage after a long day of work.

Item #3: A great concealer. Surprise! Your stress at work has caught up to you during the day and your skin is showing it. The alternate cause is the deathly NYC humidity that has melted away your perfectly placed makeup. Either way don’t go the whole day feeling self conscious about your skin, always have back up.

Item #4: Mints. A no-brainer, but necessary. You got in late last night and didn’t have time to make food for work the next day. You buy food, but you didn’t realize the pad thai you just bought was heavy on the onions.  This is where your emergency mints come in handy.

Item #5: Body Spray. Those travel mists that your grandma gave you for Christmas, most likely because they were a gift with purchase? These are perfect to carry around with you in case of any 10 minute waits in the infamous oven also known as the subway.


This on-the-go look is ready for anything: the heat, the wind that lifts up your skirt and the bag that carries it all. Shop it below!
