Because I need somewhere to keep my phone, purse & makeup. I usually wear skirts, so no pockets. And on all the pairs of jeans I have got, the pockets are ridiculously small.
Hairbrush in case my hair gets messy
make up in case i need to touch up
mirror to help me touch up my make up
perfume/body spray for after gym
facial wipes - never know when you might need them
sanitary towels - when i need them
a pen - always comes in handy
my purse - always need that
some hand cream/gel - for when my hands get dry
an umbrella during the cold weather
some spare change
basically everything a person could ever need suddenly when out one day - you can be certain that we're carrying it in our bag
heck if i'm taking a bigger bag with me i sometimes have some spare shoes and clothes in there too
I don't like the big, bulky ones. I like the ones that just hang by your side and you can put the strap across your body. I don't always wear them but sometimes I worry about all my things falling out of my pockets. I keep my phone, oyster, some glasses wipes (you know just in case), a little money and a pack of tissues.
I'm one of those dummies who carries her life in her purse, I get so paranoid before I leave the house that I might need something and I never even need em. Smh. Better to be safe then sorry.
Where are you people finding clothes pockets that can safely store 5.5 inch phones?
Also if I'm leaving the house, chances are I'm carrying an item from place A to place B. Kinda hard to do without carrying a bag with you!
I carry my makeup, phone & perfume.
Intend to wear dresses sand skirts which most don't have pockets, so to basically carry around a load of shite most of which I don't use or belong to other people.
spare pair of tights
make-up compact and nail polish (for touch ups on the go)
and probably a couple more things I forgot...
Even without the need for beauty stuff, I still don't know how guys survive without handbags !
