What’s in your Botkier bag?

Planet Botkier August 03, 2012

Almost every busy girl carries her daily essentials in her favorite bag. These essentials are what you depend on to get you through the day and night! At the Botkier office, we asked Sophie what she carries in her favorite Valentina shoulder in teal.

1. Canon Rebel camera: “I’m a photographer so I can’t imagine going anywhere without my camera. I mostly shoot street photography but sometimes when I catch someone in a great outfit, I’ll snap that too.”

2. Ray Ban Sunglasses: “I can’t go anywhere without my favorite pair of sunglasses, even if it’s a cloudy day.”

3. Orbit spearmint gum: “My friends make fun of me but I’ll chew a whole pack of gum a day.”

4. Kodak Film: “I usually shoot with my digital camera but there are some occasions where I want to capture moments in film. Even though you’re not getting the instant gratification of seeing your image right away, it’s a treat to see your image after some time has passed.”

5. iPhone: “My iPhone keeps me connected to my world when I’m on the go. I definitely use instagram the most. I love being able to see what others see throughout their day, it’s a very creative way to stay connected!”

6. Wallet: “I bought this wallet at Anthropologie a while back. It’s the perfect size for me and I love the design.”

7. Book: “I’m currently reading Coco Chanel, The Legend and the Life. She has always been one of my idols and the story of her life is fascinating.”

8. Perfume: “I have been wearing the same perfume for over 10 years, Chance by Chanel.”

9. Lipstick: “My makeup must-have is always lipstick. Even if I’m not wearing any other makeup, a little lipstick goes a long way. My current favorites are Rosy Nude and Candy Apple by Revlon.”

10. Shimmer: “I usually wear Moon Beam by Benefit on my cheekbones before I go out at night. I love it because it gives your face a subtle glow and almost acts as blush.”
