Inside Her Bag

Design and merchandising sophomore Julia Pacitti empties her everyday tote bag to show us the essentials and fun products she carries around with her:


  1. Bag, Fossil: sturdy, water resistant and has plenty of pockets, perfect for toting things around campus
  2. Sequined laptop sleeve, Urban Outfitters: a gift from her roommates last year for her birthday, Julia frequently receives compliments for this sparkly case
  3. Red notebook: Julia’s go-to scratch pad for ideas, doodles, reminders and to-do lists
  4. Paper Mate Flair Felt-Tip Marker Pen, Staples: always on her person, Julia’s favorite pen is bold and smooth, making note-taking slightly less painful
  5. Oversized Cat-Eye Sunglasses, Urban Outfitters: “They’re vintage and very me and are also the only pair of sunglasses that doesn’t get destroyed in my bags.”
  6. iPhone 4S, Apple: As a busy 20-year-old student, Julia never leaves home without her iPhone and brings headphones for when she needs to do work or has a long walk to class
  7. Cliff Bar: “A must-have since I’m always hungry and for those early-morning classes.”
  8. USB drives: “They’re very disorganized, but I can’t go anywhere without them.”
  9. Baby Lips Lip Balm, Maybelline: great for creating a soft pucker, plus the adorable packaging makes it even more necessary
  10.  ID and Coin Purse, Coach: a holder for the all-important DragonCard makes it much harder to lose …  in theory
