Julie Delpy's Bag of Infinite Relatable Sorrow

Via Hairpin pal Lindsey Weber, Us Magazine did their standard "what's in your bag, celebrity X?" routine, this time with actress/director/screenwriter Julie Delpy, and it got wonderfully grim:

I've got Terminix cards because they just fumigated my house for termites. We're staying with my boyfriend, so I have no clothes. I've been wearing the same pants for five days.

My Terminix cards are poppin' too, Julie.


Nicole Cliffe, What's in Your Bag?

Nicole "Reading" Cliffe, what are those crazy-looking horse books?



The blog Fucked in Park Slope has this photographic evidence that catpacks—backpacks for cats, but do I even need to tell you this, LOOK—are real, especially so in Park Slope. Oh my god.

Ask a Clean Person: Dude, Where's My Coach?

I love Ask a Clean Person because I am so not a clean person. I'm also not an expensive bag person because of aforementioned inability to be clean, but for my birthday in November my boyfriend got me a what I would consider ridiculously expensive bag. Somehow I have managed to keep it relatively stain free, but on the bus tonight I read the newspaper and when I looked down at my purse I realized that some ink had smudged onto it!

I called the stupid expensive bag company [Coach] for cleaning instructions and I was told that didn't have any for this expensive bag (made of a [...]


Edith, What's Actually in Your Handbag Right Now?

In the spirit of magazine articles that employ celebrity handbags and makeup bags to give readers a product-dump of shiny, enviable bottles, tubes, jars, and pots (see: Marie Claire's "In the Bag" feature, an interesting but frustratingly manicured celebrity "exposé" found on the last page of the print edition), we began by asking each other, and then, hopefully, other women with bags, What's actually in your bag right now? Edith, you first.
