We had so much fun finding out what Katie Cecil of Wayfarers keeps in her trendy little Kate Spade carryall that we couldn’t help but ask the same of Molly Portier, the lead songstress from one of our fave up-and-coming bands, Blonde Roses. The alternative-meets-classic rock sounding quartet is based out of New Orleans, Louisiana, with a sound reminiscent of another era — and yet perfect for exactly right now, too.
Molly’s vintage-chic style is everything we’d hoped for from the leading lady of a band we admire. Combined with her soulful voice, we think “icon status” might be in the cards for this one…
Check out the must-haves she keeps in her impossibly cute purse below:
The Bag: Flying Fox Marty Mini with Fringe in Gunmetal ($100).
According to Molly: “A friend of mine designed this bag for her line Flying Fox and I am absolutely obsessed. It’s small enough that it’s easy to throw over my shoulder for shows and music festivals, but also big enough to fit all of my go-to essentials. And it’s dripping in fringe – enough said.”
Signature Fragrance: Clean Reserve Blonde Rose Travel Spray ($25)

Molly says: “I am such a geek, but I stumbled on this perfume that shared our band name and got a bunch of butterflies and immediately bought it. They say it’s for anyone who loves to be feminine with an edge. Um, hello. Yes, please!”
Go-To Lip Color: Mac Cosmetics Lipstick – Mac Red ($17)
Molly explains: “I am a total sucker for red lipstick and it’s a must-have in my purse. I love this one in particular because it’s long-lasting and manages to somehow make it through me getting mouthy with my microphone during a show.”
Multi-Tasking Breath-Saver: Hint Mint Mini Chocolate Mints ($2.99)
According to Molly: “I kill two birds with one stone here – I get minty fresh breath and it’s chocolate flavored. I admit that I am one of those people and I initially bought this solely because I loved the packaging.”
Molly tells us: “I love, love fun sunglasses. These are my current obsession. I channel my inner diva through my sunglasses, so the bigger the better. Fingers crossed I don’t lose or break them like the many other pairs of my past…”
Lippie: Burt’s Bees Strawberry Lip Balm ($3.30)
Molly explains: “For those days when my red lipstick would be total overkill, but my lips still need a little loving.”
…And we’re forever obsessed with Blonde Roses and the flawless style of their lead singer, Molly Portier! If you check out their new album, Hell Or High Water, be sure to tell us your thoughts on Instagram!
