♥ he's got baggage.

in his collection of photographic diptychs, aptly named "persona,"
photographer jason travis {above!} pairs people with the contents of their
purses, bags and suitcases and lays it out for all to see.

the nosey girl in me is loving the unsolicited welcome into the world
of someone else's belongings, while also confirming the fact that
most people really do carry their whole life in their own hands.

completely intrigued and inspired, i decided share with you
a few snaps of me & what is currently in my bag at the moment...

what's in your bag right now??

19 ♥ love notes.:

  1. wow...im always curious to know what's inside other people's bags...this is kind of like the selby in your bag...so cool!

  2. Ooh this looks like a fantastic project. Will definitely be checking this out. Thanks for sharing :)

  3. Great post! I love that like me, you have a gazillion lippies/glosses! Why is that?!

  5. sami-this is great! I have to check out his site! And, I saw your note on Melissa's blog...it sucks that nothing was going on at DFV or NM. :( let's head to NY next year!!

  6. It's true, one can learn a lot from a person's bag! Have you seen the book about grocery lists? Some gal collected discarded lists and then dressed in character of how she presumed the owner of the list lived ~ it is a hilarious book!

  7. Hey great post!!!

  8. ahh, loved this post! I`m always curious to know what`s inside other`s bags. :D

  11. This is such a great idea! My hubby usually teases me and says if i always have to carry the house in my bag(because i have quite a bit stuffed in it); camera, phone, sunglasses and case, mini bag with lipgloss, lipstick, chapstick, oil blotting sheets, pen, writing paper, wallet...Yea, my list is never ending:-)

  12. fun fun. blackberry, rosebud salve, pocket mirror, diptyque solid perfume, LV wallet, keys, and packs of gum. yep, it's heavy.

    CLOTHED MUCH, a modest fashion blog

  15. Oh my gosh, what an awesome idea!!! Love it, and I looove your ring! Beautiful!! :)

  16. I love these! I'm always wondering what other people carry in their bags, but I think I would be mortified to spill mine until I cleaned it up a bit.

  17. This is such a fantastic post. I really dig the way it is all laid out too.
