Bridget Bahl is what we would call a bag lady extraordinaire. Flipping through her blog AndIwaslike.com you’ll find her strutting one mouth watering piece after another. Hermès, Vuitton, YSL, she’s got them all dangling from her New York fashionista arm. With fabulous outfits to match.

When we got the chance to take a closer look at her very special Chanel Lego clutch we didn’t think twice and asked all about Bridget’s bag habits.

HOW MANY DESIGNER BAGS DO you own?

Probably around 15, but  I wear the same two 98% of the time.

What’s your favorite?

My worn in black Hermès Birkin. I’m actually more of a ‘Kelly’ girl in terms of style, but the Birkin is so much easier to use day to day and I can stuff my entire life in it. I swear I will be lopsided when I am old as a result of carrying a huge bag on one side all day, everyday. I was at the airport yesterday and I weighed my bag and it was five and half kilo’s!

How and where did you get this beauty?

It is from BellaBag, which is my go-to for authentic, luxury bags. I usually trade in a bag I am sick of, but they also have sourced hard to find bags for me.

What does a bag like this mean to you?

I love a statement bag like the neon Lego because it takes care of the entire look. You can wear it with a t-shirt and jeans and it looks super stylish.

What will we always find when we take a peek inside your BAG?

What won’t you find? I tend to leave the house with everything I own, just in case! Glossier moisturizer, Le Specs sunglasses, at least one Nars lipstick and gloss. Too Faced bronzer (always), Mac fix (my favorite product) Vianel wallet, a sweater or scarf – if the bag permits, in case I get cold, which I will. A green juice, a Kind Bar or some snack… You name it, I probably have it.

Do you handle your bags with care or rather careless?

Careless. Very, but improving.

AND FINALLY, WHAT BAG IS CURRENTLY AT THE TOP OF YOUR WISH LIST?

Dying for the Chloe Faye Bag. Anything 70’s, I love.
