What's In Your Bag? Midwest Fashion Week Edition

Fashion Week Bag Essentials

We are so excited to be the Official Bloggers of Midwest Fashion Week Spring 2015 and can't wait to attend some of the runway showcases this weekend. While we've been obsessing about what we'll wear, we have also been strategically thinking about what we need to bring.

Let's be honest here, your purse is often your lifeline and holds everything from lipstick to water bottles, gum and of course the staple of Advil or Ibuprofen. But what do you do when you need to downsize and opt for a smaller clutch or crossbody bag? You go into survival mode and get to the essentials.

While we won't go into detail on all of the items above, we do want to make special mention of a few. The Band Aid Friction Block is a life saver! It creates a barrier between your skin and the shoe to prevent rubbing and ultimately, blisters, yuck! Another must, an external battery pack. This magical device can charge any of your mobile devices on the go –– just don't forget to bring the charging cord as well! Lastly, how cute is this mini-emergency kit?! It has everything you might need and it all fits in a tiny little pack.

If you're in Indy and want to take part in Midwest Fashion Week, check out the exciting event schedule and buy tickets online!

  6. Never heard of the band aid friction block...I have to find that! I love the roll up flats! When my hubby and I used to live in a bustling part of Atlanta, I had some and used them so much that I wore a hole right through them!!!
