If anybody knows her way around a fabulous handbag, it's Soho-based designer Wendy Nichol.
Nichol's signature "Bullet Bag"—a sleek bucket-shaped satchel with tassled draw strings—has been breaking hearts since her first storefront opened on Sullivan Street last fall. With celeb fans in Scarlett Johansson and Elizabeth Jagger, Nichol quickly rose to cult-fave status, and added a range of tough-girl jewelry (spikey earrings, abalone pendants) to accompany the range of bags. Naturally, we were eager for a peek inside Nichol's own pale pink carry-all (the bags are all created on site at the store), and we weren't disappointed. Vintage magazines, beauty basics, and a few jewelry essentials are all Nichol needs to keep herself fabulous on the go.
