something old (a banana republic camel coat reworked by my tailor), something new (steven alan mini bag). paired together, it's remarkable how a little accessory can breathe new life into an old coat.

in my last post, some of you were wondering just how practically roomy this could be. here is mine with the bare essentials: breath mints, keys + keychain ID zip pouch, fresh lip balm, NARS lip gloss, square zip CdG wallet, and of course, iphone. (all the apps really also make this an incredibly handy camera / organizer / translator / life multi-tasker!)
it's not as flat as it looks, either. the leather is soft but thick, so it's substantial enough to expand to about an inch or so at the sides when full.
hope this helps for those of you who might be considering the SA mini bag. what do you think? let me know if you get one!
p.s.: a reader asked about my iphone case - it's this version. it's pretty no-frills, but i picked it because it was inexpensive, and offers full coverage all around the edges of the phone. seamless fit too!
