white leather purse
I love soft leather, and The Sak really delivers.  This is my second The Sak purse picked up at Ross.  I was hesitant to buy a white purse, but I like that it goes with black or brown shoes.  Unfortunately the dye from my jeans has rubbed off on the backside of the purse a little–never showed up with a black or brown purse.  Anyone know how to clean delicate leather?
purse contents
  • Rosebud lip salve
  • RALPH roll-on perfume–for the occasional mid-day touch up.
  • Sugar Rose tinted lip balm–this has become my go to lip wear.
  • MAC lipstick in “Syrup,” for when I need a little solid color.
  • Blue pen
  • Jilbere comb–when I wore my bangs straight down (instead of to the side) I found it necessary to straighten them out with a comb from time to time.  Side swept bangs are much lower maintenance (at least for me; I have cowlicks).
  • Clear rubber band and small bobby pins
  • Birth control–I feel like the only person sharing her purse here that doesn’t have kids’ toys and snacks thrown in there… so I have this instead.
  • And that white packet that almost blends in with the background?  those are oil blotting sheets, wonderful for removing oil and leaving makeup put.
  • Small makeup bag with compact and more lipstick inside.
  • Squirt Leatherman (opens into scissors) and flashlight–I’ve used the scissors so many times–I love having this in my purse.
  • Nail clippers
  • HOBO wallet
  • Planner
  • House/work keys
  • Car key

    Ahh the planner, the most important part :)

  2. Amy in StL :

    I bought a nubuck renewal kit (it had a little rubberlike eraser and a brush) and used that to get the blue dye off my supersoft white leather purse. It took time, but it worked and didn’t damage the leather.

    Thanks Amy! I’ll give it a try!!
