As you might imagine, our ModEmployees are some pretty fashionable folks, from the clothes they wear, to the decor they display on their desks, to what they shove in their bags. If you’ve ever wanted to know about the stylish essentials our talented employees tote around with them, this post is for you.

Today we asked Bree, a Graphic Designer in our Pittsburgh office, to share us on the everyday items she carries in her bag. You’ve seen Bree’s work on the blog and on the tags that adorn the one-of-a-kind items from our vintage collections. Below, we asked her to spill it. Check out what she has to say:

Bag: “The Upwardly Mobile Satchel in Oxblood is large enough for a laptop … or a number of books.”

Swiss Army Knife: “My favorite item in my bag is my handy-dandy Swiss Army Knife. My grandpa always carried one when I was a kid, and he promised that when I grew up he’d get me one. When I turned 18 he surprised me with it. I’ve carried it with me ever since!”

Micron Pens & Sketchbooks: “I usually carry pens and a notebook to write and doodle funny things I want to remember later.”

Sunglasses: “These cute heart-shaped sunglasses shield my eyes from the sun and look really cute while doing it.”

Lipstick: “On a typical day I have at least six different lipsticks in my bag, just in case I change my mind … right now I’m loving these bright hues from Lime Crime … there is no such thing as too many lipsticks.”

Books: “I usually have a couple of books in my bag. This coloring book is fun and offers up entertainment when I need it, and the Designer’s Desktop Manual is handy to keep around when I’m on the job.”

Glasses: “I’d like to say that I carry my glasses with me so I can see clearly, but I usually just stick to squinting and keep them in my bag for late night motorcycle adventures.”

Thanks for sharing with us, Bree! What essentials do you carry? Let us know what you can’t live without, in the comments.
