A few years ago my girlfriend L gave me a limited edition book by Kate and Andy Spade called Contents. It’s a photo journal of handbag contents for a wide variety of intriguing women from all walks of life including magazine editors, musicians, housewives, photographers and more.
I love the book because it indulges my voyeuristic streak. I also happen to love handbags. It was the perfect gift for me. So being inspired, I decided to do a periodic contents feature on Calamity D.
First up is my Birkin – a gift from my good friend M after one of his many China trips!
Here are my contents:

Three hair clips
