Women’s handbags are notorious for carrying junk and unnecessary items. Sometimes we cart around things with no purpose for “just in case” moments.
Here at Fashion North HQ we visited Sunderland University’s St. Peter’s Campus to ask students and staff what mysterious items they carried.
The strange list of “handbag essentials” included nail varnish remover, a letter to Santa, fairy dust and body lotion.
So women of the North East, what’s in your handbag? Fashion North investigates.
