Fantasy Glamorous Bag Challenge

The most precious Pearl of Fashion Pearls of Wisdom has tagged me in the Fantasy Glamorous Bag Challenge, in which I name my dream bag and the contents inside. And let me tell you, it was a challenge! There are so many beautiful bags, clutches and totes that I'd love to carry around my wrist that it was almost impossible to choose! After sleeping on it for a night, I thought it would definitely be the Prada Saffiano Frame Clutch, which I posted here, but while flipping through last month's Elle, I came across this...

Christian Louboutin's tulle ruffle-detail satin bag! Why be practical? It is, after all, a fantasy so why not? I adore all the frou frou and fluff! The pink tulle takes me back to my ballet years and who can resist the iconic stiletto clasp?

And since this is a glamorous daydream, I don't have the need to carry everything and the kitchen sink as I usually do which is a good thing since very little could actually fit inside, only the necessities. And what would those consist of?

Besides my driver's license, phone and debit card, I certainly need my keys and having them attached to the graphic Notre Dame Stained Glass North Wind keychain from Zazzle.com, would actually make it easy to find inside the satin lined lovely above.

YSL Rouge Volupte Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick in #11 Rose Culte would freshen up any set of kissers for spring! Normally I avoid something so strong on my lips, but once again, since my imagination is going strong, I'm also pretending that I'm no longer afraid of anything creamier than a gloss. (Me being me would also use it as a cream blush in a pinch.) The packaging alone is so pretty, it almost makes it acceptable to apply at the dinner table.

Last but not least, I'd cram this fragrant Lolita Lempicka perfume mini on top of it all.

Hmmm...sounds like a nice night out!

Now comes my favorite part...seeing what bags the following bloggers pick!

Oh no! I'm glad you guys spoke up though. My boyfriend is actually from Dallas so he's more mellow than his "yankee" (as he calls it) girlfriend me. I probably should've said something but I was still waking up! haha
