Ieva Marija erikahoc City Lights Bag

Ieva Marija Andrulyte, entrepreneur.

You could tell who I am just by looking at my bag and finding… my notebook, full of different “to do” lists.

What you’ll never find in my bag is… hair brusher.

Three things I can’t imagine running around without are… phone, bank card and a lip balm.

If I had to pick between chaos or order... I would choose chaos. Of course I find my peace in it.

If my bag had a superpower, it would… have teleportation function. I have always been dreaming to have ability to appear in my bed when tired.

If I had a chance to swap totes with any person… that would be a monk. ‘Cause he always carries only the most necessary items, if carries any at all.

erikahoc Reda Mickeviciute Portrait Mini Bag

Reda Mickeviciute, photographer.

You could tell who I am just by looking at my bag and finding… the bag tells not only who you are but also where you are headed. Usually I carry big totes that contain basically my whole life, but when I carry a small bag it only fits necessary things that I need specifically for where I am going to.

What you’ll never find in my bag is… caraway.

Three things I can’t imagine running around without are… keys, wallet and a red lipstick.

If I had to pick between chaos or order... order.

If my bag had a superpower, it would… always be weightless no matter what is inside.

If I had a chance to swap totes with any person… Annie Leibovitz. Wish I could see what helps her creating those masterpices.

erikahoc Simona Samojauskaite Silver Ratio Bag

Simona Samojauskaitė, designer for her own brand Simona Samojauskaitė Jewellery.

You could tell who I am just by looking at my bag and finding… many many boxes for jewellery ready to be delivered to customers.

What you’ll never find in my bag is… rubbish and checks.

Three things I can’t imagine running around without are… phone, keys and couple of euros.

If I had to pick between chaos or order... freedom to order!

If my bag had a superpower, it would… always contain warm sweater. I am one of those who are always cold.

If I had a chance to swap totes with any person… that would be Peggy Guggenheim. Ever wondered how many modern art’s secrets and love stories one could find in her tote? I admire her mysterious, or sometimes it even seems crazy personality. The only option left is to read and wonder how her  life among Venice or Paris bohemia of those days looked like.

erikahoc Kriste Stankeviciute Silver Ratio Bag

Kristė Stankevičiūtė, in the World of art you can also hear them call her Kriste Stan. She is a „slash“ generation representative: fashion stylist (slash) illustrator / personal style blogger / photographer / digital creative / influencer.

You could tell who I am just by looking at my bag and finding… a red lipstick for a quick day-to-night makeover and a lip balm to wear underneath.

What you’ll never find in my bag is… a banana. Did that once, accidentally squeezed it, forgot about it and ruined my favourite bag. So – never again.

Three things I can’t imagine running around without are… my wallet, red lipstick and my phone.

If I had to pick between chaos or order... I’d like to pick order, but most of the time it’s chaos, unfortunately.

If my bag had a superpower, it would… self-renewal. I am a bag addicted, have dozens of bags that require a lot of space at home so having just one that could change it’s appearance would make my life easier. Furthermore I am constantly in need for a newer, better, prettier bag so you can imagine HOW MUCH money I could save.

If I had a chance to swap totes with any person… I would choose LA based fashion and beauty blogger Courtney Trop as she has tones and tones of my favourite designers handbags and she’s carrying loads of beauty products inside her tote, that I keep forgeting at home when I desperately need them.

Kotryna Bass, blogger at kotrynabass.com

You could tell who I am just by looking at my bag and finding… my laptop!

What you’ll never find in my bag is… a make up bag.

Three things I can’t imagine running around without are… my phone, notebook and a pen.

If I had to pick between chaos or order, I’d choose... chaos, absolutely.

If my bag had a superpower, it would… always keep my clutter dry!

If I had a chance to swap totes with any person… that would be Shini Park. She’s one of the most hardworking lifestyle bloggers out there and I bet I could definitely get inspired by all the things hidden in her bag.

erikahoc Madress Bag Ingrida

Ingrida Gelminauskienė, owner at Madress Boutique.

You could tell who I am just by looking at my bag and finding… well, I believe that a bag represents who I am. It’s not transparent, but rather a standard black so you can’t tell what’s inside. Only I can open my bag and know its’ contents. Of course, talented observers can “read” the shape of my bag, which is minimal, simple and concrete. Oh, and quality must be visible too.

What you’ll never find in my bag is… food. Food is my life style. It is time dedicated to myself and those I love.

Three things I can’t imagine running around without are… wallet, makeup bag and keys. Though I have gone out only with my keys on me once, but I do like carrying a bag – it’s like holding to someone’s arm.

If I had to pick between chaos or order, I’d choose... order. I am a perfectionist who only carries essentials. Same applies to my surroundings and everything else. Less is more.

If my bag had a superpower, it would… always carry my most beautiful memories with me.

If I had a chance to swap totes with any person… that would be Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis. She is a woman-secret to me. Maybe I could know her better, if I had a chance to at least glance inside her bag. It would be fascinating to grasp  a woman, to whom the most influential and richest men could not resist.

Alina Bobrik & her erikahoc City Backpack

Alina Bobrik, IT project manager from 8 till 5 and a jewellery designer for her brand bobríq afterwards.

You could tell who I am just by looking at my bag and finding… my notebook. I never miss a chance to write down or sketch a new idea.  Also, I always have my hand cream with me – cannot stand dry hands and when you have to work with extra small detailed parts and constantly polish them, it does show on your hands.

What you’ll never find in my bag is… order of things and I am not proud of it. I like big totes and backpacks and it’s impossible to keep everything in order there.

Three things I can’t imagine running around without are… notebook, hand cream, and perhaps some tasty snack (a chocolate or granola bar).

If I had to pick between chaos or order, I’d choose... chaos.

If my bag had a superpower, it would… be an ability to place an item I need just right in my hand on top of other things. In order not to waste a lot of time just searching for stuff.

If I had a chance to swap totes with any person… that would probably be Jurga Lago. She seems charismatic, very interesting personality, radiating calmness and harmony. Being a jeweller myself, I would probably find some inspiring things in her bag.
