Designer of darling shoes and handbags—Kitty flats, Lobster t-straps and Gummi Bear clutches among them—that bear the moniker Charlotte Olympia and a spider’s web emblem, Charlotte Dellal made the transatlantic flight from London last week for a trunk show at The Room at Hudson’s Bay Vancouver. Before greeting fans and introducing them to her latest sea-themed spring collection “Overboard,” she clicked open her Brigitte Bardot-clad clutch for us to snoop through. In addition to a well documented heel fetish, the lady is mad about miniature things, and that includes nail polish, hairbrushes and her three adorable sons.

Oh, how time has flown! It seems like just yesterday Nancy Won joined the FASHION Magazine team as fashion news editor—but it was actually almost a year ago! Meaning: We’re way overdue for exploring the contents of her purse. Nancy describes her Alexander Wang bag as badass and we’d certainly use that word to describe her personal style as well. (From stacking rings to Nike kicks, Nancy’s got cool-girl style on lock.) And as you can see from our purse snooping—crystals! A tiny Tabasco sauce!—the inside of her bag is pretty cool too.

What’s in your bag, Harley Viera-Newton? »

Last week, one of fashion’s coolest It girls took time out from spinning at Chanel, fronting a Gucci lookbook and collaborating with Dior Beauty to close Rudsak‘s 20th anniversary show during Toronto Fashion Week. A few hours before the show, we got to be ultimate creeps, rummaging inside her bag for daily go-tos. Amongst the items, we found the key to Viera-Newton’s signature look: long lasting beauty products. “Once I start DJing, I don’t really have time to touch up so whatever is on at the start has to stay on,” she said. Take note, working girls!

What’s in your bag, Sea of Shoes’ Jane Aldridge?

Jane Aldridge has the designer shoe game on lock. Her wildly popular blog, Sea of Shoes, has documented her favourite purchases and pairs since 2008, landing her on the pages of Vanity Fair and at dinner tables with Karl Lagerfeld. So it’s fitting that we caught up with the red-headed blogger at Holt Renfrew Yorkdale, to celebrate the launch of the newly-revamped shoe hall. Naturally, she was advising fellow footwear lovers on pre-Christmas purchases and posing for photo opps with fans. (As for Aldridge’s own shoes, open toe Jerome C. Rousseau cage booties are a new favourite. “I’ve been wearing these tons, actually, ever since I got them,” she said.) Read more »

Since the launch of her blog, Song of Style, back in 2008, Los Angeles-based blogger Aimee Song has become one of the blogosphere’s most beloved. With her penchant for bright colour combos, positivity and long flowing locks, she’s built an empire of page views, Instagram likes and Facebook fans. She’s turned all that into several collaborations with brands like Michael Kors, 7 for all Mankind and now Canadian eCommerce site, eLuxe. The 6-piece capsule collection ($45-$75, features logo T-shirts and distressed sweatshirts all emblazoned with “Do Epic Chic” and “VoiLÁ.” “I’m always about positive sayings,” she says. “I always feel like if you’re positive in the morning, you wake up saying ‘Oh my gosh, today is going to be a great day,’ then, everything is gonna be great! And I thought if I was going to do ‘chic’ then I’m going to make it epic, so why not, ‘Do Epic Chic’?”

While Song was in town last week (wearing the new Chanel chain link booties, we might add), we sifted through her Michael Kors bag and found plenty of the bloggers go-to items. They were all epically chic.

What’s in your bag, Katie Boland?

Katie Boland ranks high on our list of young Canadians worth keeping an eye on. In the past few years the Toronto-based actress had made waves with notable roles including one alongside Kat Dennings in the 2010 flick Daydream Nation and in her own web series Long Story, Short (which she wrote and co-produced, by the way). The striking brunette, who has much to be excited about with a role on the new CW series Reign, stopped by our offices to give us an uncensored look at what she carries in her everyday bag. A self-professed iPhone addict, who admits she can’t live without eyeliner and is constantly on the hunt for the perfect red lipstick, is refreshingly down to earth and surprisingly low-maintenance (lipstick, Visa and phone is all that she brings with her to red carpet events). We got up close and personal with Boland’s must-have items as she let us peruse through her purse.

For those of us who came of fashionable age by the television set in Canada, Jeanne Beker is it. Trailblazing the industry since the launch of FashionTelevision in 1985, she is without a doubt the country’s most recognizably fabulous face. Known for her bestie status interviews with the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Beker has often been referred to as pioneer, renegade, genius and trendsetter—-they’d all be accurate. Her omnipresent fashion presence has inspired many careers and since FT’s tearful end last year, she hasn’t stopped. Beker still covers major fashion events for E! News and designs not one but two collection, Edit by Jeanne Beker work wear and Fysh by Jeanne Beker optical.

For the past 7 years, Dan Levy has been part of the Canadian pop cultural consciousness. As co-host of MTV Canada’s The After Show alongside Jesse Cruickshank, we instantly fell for his humour, his hand gestures and his penchant for thick-rimmed glasses. When he ditched us for the sunny skies of Los Angeles a few years back, we’ll admit, we were teary eyed. But hey, can you blame him? Since being in L.A., Levy’s been making waves once again with guest spots on Lainey Gossip and in the film Admission alongside Tina Fey. Most recently, he’s taken that famed frame affiliation to the next level by creating his own line of glasses, D.L. Eyewear. Genius. The line includes 10 Dan Levy-approved styles which double as both optical and sunglass frames (check ‘em out here, as modeled by Levy and his conveniently stunning pal, Sasha Tong).

While we were already fairly well versed in this multitasker’s optical essentials, we went searching through his bag to see what else he carries with him all day every day. So go forth, snoop Dan Levy’s bag!
