What’s in My Bag: The Scrunchie Evangelist

By Beauty Blitz / September 4, 2014


Twelve tubes of lipstick? Poetry scribbled on Sephora receipts? Keys to a Harley? You can tell a lot about a person by the contents of her bag. In our What’s in My Bag series, we ask style insiders to spill the contents of their purses in hopes of finding a few gems.

The Subject

Katalina Sharkey de Solis is the founder of @scrunchiesofinstagram, the brilliant account that keeps our feed ever-populated with photos of the hair accessory worn by everyone from Michelle Tanner to modern-day It girls. Scrunchtastic!

The Bag

"I have already pre-ordered the Moschino french fry bag [1]...it had better get here quickly!!!" 


What’s Inside

"It's Scrunchie's signature color, and frankly, there has never been a better color ever made. Elsa Schiapperelli knew what she was doing."
"The packaging is a piece of art, it will fit compactly even into our incredibly tiny bag, and second only to lipstick, it is the product that makes Scrunchie look prepared and awake during the shows (when she clearly should be in bed sleeping instead...). And if you are particularly skilled, you can use it as eyeliner in a pinch!"
"Scrunchie is forbidden from disclosing all of the celebrities which clamor to the Phoenicia hotel specifically to purchase their fragrance, but thank goodness not only do they make them in special clutch-friendly sizes, but they also put a couple aside for Scrunchie."
Fashion Week Essentials
"My favorite kimono-fabric Hot Dog & Bun scrunchie [5], my iPhone (duh) and extra charger, Fruit Stripe Gum [6] (still available at Dylan's Candy shop!), aspirin [7], my feather stylus [8] to do on-the-spot 'Facetuning.'" 
The Quirky & Unexpected
"I never leave without my Erickson Beamon cat ear combs [9]...because you just never know when they'll be appropriate. Kanye stickers [10], because you never know when you are going to need to cheer someone up. And a Baron von Fancy sewing kit [11]."
