What’s in your bag, Julia Brownstein?

With every girl’s dream job – Senior Ladies Buyer at Browns – and two adorable toddlers, Julia Brownstein is superwoman in heels. Flitting between Paris, Milan, preschool and play-dates, Julia not only has fun with fashion but she also knows how to keep everything she needs at her fingertips (which surprisingly isn’t much). So what does the shoe guru lug from meetings, to mommy-time, to martinis? Julia was nice enough to open her bag of (incredibly organized) tricks for a peek into life at the forefront of the Canadian fashion scene.  

The Bag
Mackage (available at select Browns locations). I absolutely love handbags, but I’m also very particular since I don’t change mine very often. I’m always running around so changing is too difficult – I need to know that I have everything at all times. I’ll change my bag to go out on weekends, but during the week this bag comes with me everywhere. 

The Essentials

iPhone
Thats my life.

Mara Hoffman iPhone Case
I have about 40 iPhone cases. I like to switch them up. Phone cases are like an accessory – they’re always in your hand or by your ear. I bought this one in Miami, it’s by Mara Hoffman for Incase. I’m completely in love with the print; it’s so cool and exciting! 

Keys
My keychain is Jonathan Adler. It’s a Pisces sign. I’m into astrology. 

Wallet
I have two wallets. The first is a neon pink graffiti Louis Vuitton and the second is a Comme Des Garçons change purse I found on a buying trip in New York. 

Passport
I usually keep it in my bag because I travel a lot! 

Flats
These flats are Chloe, available at select Browns locations. Because I’m a working mom on the go, I can’t wear heels all day long. I want to look polished in the office, but I’ll slip on my flats when I’m rushing home to see my kids or buying groceries.  

Bag of nuts and dried fruits
I’m always hungry and need to snack in the middle of the day.

Fisher Price toy cell phone (ages 1-3)
I leave it in my purse for when I’m on the go with my daughter. She likes to imitate Mommy. 

Other Stuff

Kiehl’s Lip Gloss
I always use the same lipgloss: Kiehl’s lip balm #1, mint flavoured, with sunscreen in it, which I like. 

Umbrella 
It’s raining right now. 

Children’s Crackers
My kids love these.  

Hairbrush
So, how does your bag stack up?
