Planning to step out en femme? Don’t forget your bag! More than just a stylish accessory, your purse is a toolbox for your female self.
While a cluttered bag isn’t chic, there are some essentials you shouldn’t be without. You never know what life will throw at you – and a lady is always prepared!
In this blog post, I share 15 transgender / crossdressing items to keep in your purse when you are on the go.
1. Cell phone
Needless to say, you should never leave home without your phone. Besides, you never know when the perfect selfie opportunity will arise!
2. Lip Gloss or Lipstick
A moisturizing lip gloss or lipstick in your favorite shade is a female essential.
3. Mints or Gum
Freshen your breath on the go by keeping a stash of mints or gum on hand.
4. Nail File
There’s nothing more annoying than a broken nail, so throw one of these babies into your bag.
5. $20 Cash
Even though most of us rely on credit or debit cards, you never know when you might need some cash.
6. Hand Cream
Keep your hands feeling soft and feminine with a tube of hand cream.
7. Blotting Paper or Powder
Reduce shine on the go with blotting paper or pressed powder.
8. Bobby Pins
These come in handy if you need to secure your wig or tame some loose strands of hair.
9. Compact Mirror
A must-have for checking your teeth or makeup.
10. Stain Removal Pen
The sooner you treat an unexpected stain, the less likely it is to be permanent.
Not just for cuts and scrapes, a Band-Aid can relieve blisters caused by new shoes.
12. Safety Pins
Those can be a lifesaver if you break a strap or pop a button.
13. Emergency Info
Not to be a downer, but if anything should happen, this could literally save your life.
14. Advil or Tylenol
Keep a couple painkillers on hand in case you get a surprise headache.
15. Healthy Snack
Hunger can sneak up on you, so keep a healthy snack bar or some nuts in your bag.
What are YOUR purse essentials?
They say you tell a lot about somebody by what she keeps in her purse! Are you a stylish survivalist or do you prefer to travel light?
I’d love to know what YOUR purse essentials are, so please share in the comments below!

I also carry a little baby Swiss Army Knife. It has scissors,tooth pic, tweezers, tiny knife blade and a file with a screw driver on the end. Best pocket knife I ever owned. They even come in cool colors now.
I carry so much stuff in my purse it’s unreal.
Aside from the above listed, I also carry tissues, blush, blush brush (I have a travel brush set), the perfume I’m wearing that day, the lipstick that I’m wearing that day, gloss, and my official endocrinologist endorsed Transgender document (just in case).
I think you forgot one or two items. Even though a TGIRL might not use them personally but three or four spare panty protection might help a gg who might be out or got caught unexpectedly by that time of the month. You could end up a “life saver” and a new friend. ; )
I agree with the purse essentials, but what about a small bottle of nail polish and a small bottle of nail glue for emergencies.
You should NEVER leave your home without your state issued photo ID as you must be able to prove you are who you say you are.
Yes! Excellent point!
I keep soft leather gloves in my purse they are warm in winter and help keep hands soft.Another thing I keep is hair brush to be used with my wig
Good suggestions! A brush or comb is definitely a must. I think I could have easily made this list 20 items long. 😉
Oh yes. I forgot to mention that I do also carry a hair comb/pic combo. A scarf wouldn’t hurt either on super windy days.
I usually carry wallet with cash and credit cards keys lip gloss, a pen, sometimes my journal paper clips and a dry erase marker(I’m a teacher). I love bags and purses. I just found this bag made of felt with rivets. It could work for men or women. It is really interesting and a lot of people have commented on it. I found it in a consignment shop. I swore the next time I went back if it was still theee ai would buy it. Two weeks later it was still there! I think a man would probably not have bought it but like I said I think it could be for either sex.
Very cool bag!
This helps and good info I carry pantyholes to just in case
That’s a great suggestion! Nothing worse than a run in your hose.
You know it would all happen and nowhere to get more
