5 Drop-Dead Handbags Packed For 5 Different Cities

Phone, money, keys, ID: There are some essentials every modern girl packs into her handbag every day. But, it's all those other, more specific, perhaps less crucial purse contents that are super-interesting (and worth snooping!). They can give away your hobbies, favorite afternoon treats, and even your hometown.
Here, we've taken our five R29 for DKNY bags, each designed for one of our city markets (New York, D.C., Miami, and London), and packed them with a handful of goodies only a local could appreciate.
Click through to catch the line-up, and don't forget to tell us: Is there anything in your bag that only a local would have?
