Inside Pin Up Girl Sugar de la Tarte's Purse With Her Author, Terri L. Austin #ProjectPurseDump

Hey, everybody! I’m Sugar de la Tarte. As a retro pin up girl and burlesque performer, I keep a few essentials in my bag at all times. I never know when someone might recognize me, so I like to look my best.

Here’s my favorite bag.  Doesn’t this just scream Sugar? Since I love my deep red lips, I wouldn’t be caught dead without a tube of Mac Red.

So what else do I keep in my sweet little cosmetic bag?

My compact, natch.

Who wants to walk around with a shiny nose? Not me, honey.

And of course I can’t leave home without my pasties. Believe me, carrying these around along with my pastie glue has saved my bacon more than once.

Since I got inked—isn’t she lovely—I need to have a tube of sunscreen on hand. I don’t want this beauty to fade.

Last but not least, I carry my phone, but I had to bling out my case. In my world, presentation is everything!
