what's in my purse?

I was thrifting with my mom this past weekend and found a pretty vintage Coach purse, so I decided to snap these pics as I was switching my things from my old bag to this one. I hardly ever buy purses because I'm super picky about what kind I use. When I invest in a purse it has to be large enough to carry at least one paperback book, and be of quality material (I detest the slimy faux leather some stores, ahem Target, seem to favor these days). Of course, it also has to look nice! I always am drawn to vintage Coach bags when I happen to see them because the ones I find usually meet all the aforementioned standards. I liked this one because it was brown and black and thus, super versatile.

Basically this is the most boring What's In My Purse? posts ever, because, well, look. Nothing too exciting, but...There's a pair of sunnies that my bf randomly found somewhere last summer, a thrifted wallet that is having sipper issues, random rocks, some cash, change, random receipts (there were actually more of these, but I didn't want the post to be What's In My Purse Besides Receipts, so...), memo pad and pen (a must for any aspiring sleuth), mint tin lip balm holder, emergency mascara, hair clip (I can't live without these! My hair is too heavy for pony tail holders, so these things are great! I have only ever found them at Claire's. They're about $4, and I always buy all the ones they have whenever I'm there because I'm afraid one day they'll stop carrying them and then I'll pretty much have to shave my head.), loose bobby pins, and, of course, a book. So what do you guys have in your purses?

vintage coach?! great find! the contents of your purse are actually not at all boring - everything has some form of brown or black and it's very aesthetically pleasing. ;) i've heard "watership down" is a real tear-jerker, how are you enjoying it?
