As I’m sure we’re all fully aware now, I have graduated. And that means I had to seriously think about what I was wearing and taking. I wore a white floral dress (but I wasn’t confident enough to take outfit photos…maybe one day I will be) and needed a bag to go with it.
And that’s where Tessuti came in. I met Tessuti at the Bloggers Ball and after a few emails back and forth, I managed to find the perfect bag for graduation!
They have a number of well known brands stocked on their site, with a range of clothes and accessories. I’ve currently got my eye on this Michael Kors beauty and this Armani T-Shirt. However, for graduation the Calvin Klein Robyn Saddle Bag* was the perfect size for my needs. With everyone else on photography duty instead of me for a change, I only needed a small bag for the minimal items I took.
In fact, I pretty much only took makeup with me! Other than my phone, I took a small bottle of So Eternal*, my Rimmel Stay Matte powder and an Eco Tools brush for makeup top ups (it was flipping sweaty that day and I needed all the mattifying my skin could get), and one of my favourite lipsticks – Urban Decay Strip. And of course my phone. It isn’t like I wasn’t going to go a few hours without checking twitter.
I didn’t see the point in carrying around a ton of stuff that I didn’t need through the day, especially since carrying a bag and wearing a huge gown isn’t the easiest of tasks!
