What's in your Handbag, Stephanie Roper AKA The Wardrobe Angel?

WIYH StephaineOn Monday we met Stephanie Roper, Stylish fashion entrepreneur also known as The Wardrobe Angel.  Today, she is letting us get to know her more intimately and showing us what is in her beautiful handbag.  Over to you, Steph... My handbag is a Mulberry Effie Tote in black. I had this bag pinned to my Bag Candy Pinterest Board for months before I bought it in October 2014. You can see on the board my progression through tote bags until I decided on a Mulberry Effie Tote; it’s the last pin I pinned. It is so unbelievably special to me – in the midst of a stressful period of buying a house and moving I was offered an amazing piece of work which paid very well; I used the money to buy my Mulberry. This might seem odd to you – moving was expensive, never mind buying a house! – but Rich and I spoke about it at length. When he said “you work really hard, you deserve it” that made up my mind.

I took a day off, phoned the Mulberry shop in Manchester checking they had one in stock then took the train over, brimming with excitement. It felt like Christmas. Fast forward 4months and I have used that bag every single day. It was worth the wait and I love it. And I love that in a way it was a joint purchase: I never hid the price from Rich, there was no hiding the receipt, no guilt. Just joy: knowing how hard I had worked and that I deserved my Mulberry bag. The Wardrobe angel handbag contents What’s in my bag?
  1. Diary and Notepad – now these both fit in my handbag I carry them everywhere.
  2. Whistles clutch – doubles as a make-up bag and is there in case of emergency night-time manoeuvres involving evening networking events or nights out.
  3. Maybelline 24 hour Super Stay Lipstick – I think I should take out shares in Maybelline I use so much of this lip colour (Red Passion 510). It doesn’t budge though, no matter how much tea I drink!
  4. Maybelline Powder – my moon-like pores quake in the presence of this bad boy!
  5. Phone – with the coolest cover. It’s an American ketchup bottle. Look at the little face! Enough to brighten any day!
  6. Keys to mine and Rich’s first home – my Mum got me these cool key covers with monkeys on. Get it?! The slab of quartz keyring was from a good friend Joban (I’m Carlos to her).
  7. Wallet – it’s big enough to be a bag in itself! I keep all my receipts for The Wardrobe Angel, personal receipts, vouchers, my talisman (a handwritten letter from a client thanking me for a wonderful day and for all the positive changes I initiated in her wardrobe), photos of Rich and I, photos of my nephews.
  8. Business Cards – I love my business cards: square, cute, synching with my brand perfectly. They have their own little pocket in my bag.
  9. Tape measure – when I’m with a client I’ll often take her measurements. It’s really handy when I’m planning a personal shop; instead of guessing whether an item will fit I’ll measure it.

Classy and functional!

Love my Model KT bag! Received bag in a nicely wrapped box and dust bag. Also received compliments on how beautiful the bag is. Strap is a little long for me since I'm a petite lady.. Would like additional holes so I can adjust the strap to fit me. Thanks Jennifer!

Thank you for your fabulous review Renee! You can make your strap shorter with this technique here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8zQKn_pnZBQ (my fave way to wear my Model KT!), I'll also email you directly about getting some more holes in the strap =) Best wishes, Jennifer ❤️
A lovely complement to my KT and KT Mini

I'm now a proud owner of all three JH designs. My Sakura purse is super stylish and fits all the essentials.

Present

Quick delivery nicely packaged it’s a Christmas gift

Small but perfectly formed

I bought this to compliment my Model KT and I was a little concerned about the size. This purse is small but mighty. I love it so much I use it out of work too. It has shown me I don't need a big purse as this holds all I need. I love it!

Style Perfection

I bought the Model KT in black for work. This bag is beyond my expectations. I can carry everything I need whilst looking stylish too. I often have to dash from location to location and this carries everything. The shopping bag is particularly hand if I need to nip out at lunch. I am so pleased I purchased this and I am considering the mini KT to compliment this.
