That said, there are some things that you just don't want knocking about a see-though bag - ahem, tampons, we're talking about you.
So, other than your iphone and excellent card holder, what can you have in there to add some style or fun to your look?
A funny toy
Play around with a silly toy. Bring out your childish side with a lucky charm, your favourite animal figurine or just a lego man your nephew gave you.
A beautiful scarf
Give your bag a burst of colour with a scarf. You can chuck it in, or arrange it to hide some less interesting items you need, like gum.
Jewels and Pearls
If you've got some impressive costume jewellery that's either too gaudy to wear or has a clasp that's given up the ghost, then throw it in there and watch it sparkle.
Get into the tropical trend, without forking out for a slice of something you won't want in a year's time.
Find a home for that flower headband long after the festival hangover's worn off or pick up a hula lei the next time you're at a luau. You know, all those luaus people throw.
