What’s in Your Purse Series: Week Twelve.

Julie Dance, one of my favorite people ever, sent over her purse for this week’s What’s In Your Purse Series.  Enjoy.

I had shoved a ton of stuff in my purse as I was running into work late one day. I was amazed at how much I could fit in there. I have a really bad habit of carrying my camera in my purse, instead of my camera bag. I always carry my Flip video camera in the interior pocket of my purse. I just realized that my iPhone is missing. I think it was charging somewhere, as it usually is. I’m a busy working mom of one son, and I am always prepared. You think I have a ton of stuff in my purse? Well, you should see my car.

Hello there! I’m Allison Czarnecki, founder + editor of Petit Elefant, a blog all about style on a budget for every part of your life: style / home / travel / family. I do a lot of how-to beauty + style tutorials, travel posts, easy recipes, home remodel projects, and cool DIY crafts you totally want to try. I’m super happily married (to a hot Polish immigrant) and am the mother of two kids, a daughter and son, all of whom are featured here on the regular. We live in the country but we’re a little bit rock + roll. Welcome!


  1. Whatever DeeDee Wants :

    I have that credit card holder from LV too. I don’t like to use a big wallet so I just use that instead.

    • Allison :

      I love anything big Dee Dee, but I think Julie probably loves the simpler stuff.


  2. brandy :

    This is really neat. I always love to see what is in people’s purses and I am guilty of carrying my camera around in my purse too (when I use one ha!)

    • Allison :

      I carried my camera in my purse all around NYC, and man it was heavy. You never know when you’re going to need it though!

  3. Julie {Angry Julie Monday} :

    I have a problem when I use my bigger wallet, I cram stuff in there and can’t zip it closed. I’ve learned that if I use my smaller wallet, I don’t lose things like credit cards. I’ve had this particular wallet for almost ten years now.

    Thanks for featuring my hot mess. This was particularly organized on this day, because I was in an OCD cleaning frenzy.

    • Allison :

      I do the same thing Julie! OCD cleaning frenzy and then, well. life.

  4. Shanna ~ My Favorite Everything :

    Love it Julie! I’m thinking this might have been a lighter purse day for you??! What happened to the cool camera bag/purse?? Love the glimpse into your life….totally feeds the Julie Stalker role! Ha! BTW, love the Harveys bag :-)
