Whats in your Bag Wednesdays?

Welcome to the 2nd installment of Whats in your Bag Wednesdays.  This week's participate not only loves style, but loves Jesus as well.  You can't help but loves a girl who get her 'style on' and her 'God on' at the same time.  Please meet Cathy of Minister of Style.  I'll let her tell you about her.

Hi, I'm Cathy and I 'm a handbag afficionado! I love bags, all types from ladylike frame handbags to big, slouchy hobos. I think I have owned at least one of every type of bag imaginable. I am currently big on clutches and developing a nice little collection. My bag du jour is a black studded hobo that I purchased from Marshalls a few months ago. One of the reasons I love this bag is that although it is slouchy, it still holds it's shape when I stuff it with all kinds of "necessities" of the day.

The front has a pouch that is closed by a magnetic snap, it is large enough to hold my keys and Blackberry....things I need easy access to. The back has a zippered pocket to hold more doddads that you might want to get to quickly. I often stash my work ID and access card in there for safekeeping. It's a basic black with a classic hobo shape that gets me through the work day keeping it professional but the studs give it a little edge, so I can still carry it on my personal time and feel like I am expressing my personality.

I carry a bag within a bag during the workweek, it makes it easier when I need to slip out of the office for a minute and don't want to carry the full arsenal of stuff with me. (I am a big on carriying a bag within a bag, its great for times when you need to go from day to night in an instant) This week I am carrying my snakeskin envelope clutch, it holds all that is important if I didn't have the main bag with me. It is pretty enough on its own so I carry it with pride, I don't need to hide it like those clear plastic pouches you have to carry when you work in a department store and everyone can see what's in your bag.

Ok down to the real business at hand, what's in the bag....hmmn,
well the contents of the bag itself are:

portable tripod- trying to not depend on others to take pics for me
camera- I only have a point and shoot but maybe Christmas will bring me a better quality camera
Kindle- I am a bookworm of the highest order, always have been so I am never without something to read
makeup bag- I use an old LV baguette as my makeup bag, it is stuffed with stuff I convince myself I need but since I rarely touchup my makeup during the day, I don't use it
media pouch- all my USB cords, memory sticks, you name it, is its electronic related it's in there
small wallet- holder of store cards, health insurance cards, etc.
sunnies case- gotta protect my investment even if they are cheapies
keys to my Mom's house

The clutch contains:
slim wallet- DL, cash, credit cards
business card holder- business cards obviously
Blackberry- this is my beloved friend, LOL plus it holds my life in it! Everything from my Bible to to do list
hand cream- Nivea Soft, I love it and it's only .99
lip balm- -Nivea Kiss of Flavor in Strawberry
lip gloss- Neutrogena (I forgot what the color is called)
pen and notepad- so I don't forget important details
emory board- my nails grow fast
car keys and house keys
Mini Altoids- don't want to be caught without fresh breath
tissues- it's colds/flu season (I'm cold prone, so watch it)

I love Cathy in this dress.  Yall know I have been on the lookout for that perfect houndstooth dress, but I keep coming up short.
