Detail.The black interior has zipper closure. I truly find the interior organization useful. It's one big space on the interior which is nice. On one side of the wall, there are three open pockets where I put my phone with a black case in the first, my Cargo lip gloss in the next, and then my Maybelline lip gloss in the last.
I love this lip gloss and its style name, Prague, a city I always wanted to go to... It's dark pink in the tube and on the brush, but applied and blotted well it's a medium, muted pink with a hint of berry to it. It feels great too. I first learned about it from this post from The Glamorous Housewife. She happens to have thin lips too and suggests using this product as a stepping stone to wearing a bold lip color. Since I would like to rock a red lip during my 30s, I hope she's right! I am happy I ordered it and happier that it looks nice on me.
Shine Sensational Lip Gloss in Watermelon Punch by Maybelline
This lip gloss adds shine but not color. I like the taste too. I often reapply it throughout the day and evening without aid of a mirror. Unfortunately, I think this product is discontinued. I bought it at Target on clearance awhile ago and then purchased another from Gabe's, a department store specializing in close-outs, that I store in my bathroom medicine cabinet. Eventually, I will need to replace it with something new. If you have a recommendation, then please let me know in a comment.
On the other side of the handbag, there is a zippered pocket where I stash the following items: a pen with black ink, a Tide to go pen, a travel-size lint roller (since my family has a dog), a couple of band-aids, my name tag, promotional pin and set of keys for work, a brown hair elastic, and a contact lens case with a couple of doses of Tylenol inside.
There's also an open pocket on top of the zippered one which I love for a key ring of seven loyalty program card tags (so easy to grab at the grocery store self-checkout!).
"I'm not gonna give up on love. Love is the thing, you know. You see that? [She holds up the keychain.] That's love, and I'm bringin' it to me, all day long." -Louise, Sex and the City, the Movie.
I keep some change in the zippered pocket on the back. The zipper and its pull are silver.
Other items kept in the main compartment of my handbag include a pack of tissues, brown sunglasses from Target and my keys that have a couple of key chains. One is a diamond-studded bow from Ann Taylor and the other is the Leaning Tower of Pisa I picked up just outside that monument's complex.

This is everything I have in my handbag except for my LG phone with its slim plain black case. (It's currently my only camera.)
I may also have a case for my sunglasses, white tic tacs, a grocery list, a book or Kindle, a bottle of water, and a black cardigan in my bag temporarily. (I need a cover for my Kindle.)
What's in your handbag?
I will try to publish what's in my closet as in my Spring 2015 Capsule Wardrobe post as soon as I can! I have done a lot of work on it already.
