Reese Witherspoon Lessons: How to care for your expensive handbag

This weekend, much ado was made in gossip blogs over a paparazzi image of actress Reese Witherspoon dumping out water that had spilled in her sunny yellow $4,000 custom Reed Krakoff bag.


Witherspoon, a frequent featured mom in Bellyitch, had just come from the gym with her 10-year old son Deacon.

I know it sounds petty but keeping your super expensive handbag in tip top shape is serious business. This water in the bag thing is downright sacrilegious in some circles.  So for the uninitiated, here are some rules of caring for your purse that cost over $1,000.
1. Keep it in the dustbag that it comes with.
2. Stuff it with acid free tissue or airbags to help maintain its shape.
3. Store the bag in the box and placed on a high shelf in your closet or bag shelf.
4. Make sure the space it is kept in has a moisture level of 50% because anything above 70% will cause molding and rotting.
5. Use moisturizer occasionally. Meltonian shoe cream is the best./

6. If you live in a humid environment, store your bag in an air conditioned place.
7. Keep all make up in makeup bags before putting them in the bag.
8. Avoid storing pens, markers & pencils in the bag and/or limit to one pen with a secure cap.
9. To avoid theft, avoid leaving the bag in storage racks, coat check ins, cubby holes etc. Best not take your bag where you need to leave it in someone else’s care.
10. Buy renter’s or home owner’s insurance and make sure your bag is listed as an insured item.
The end. Be a responsible hawt bag owner. ha!
