In My Bag… Charity Jordan, Actress

charity in Selma cropped 312 x 412Charity Jordan, wife, mom, actor, activist, is the focus for this month’s In My Bag.   Charity is fresh off the red carpet from the nationwide premier of the Golden Globe nominated movie SELMA that took place in Los Angeles and New York. She also got the opportunity to attend Oprah Winfrey’s Legend’s Ball – Those Who Paved the jordan mommy uncensored image




Charity told Frost Illustrated, “Here I was in tears, watching Oprah’s master class in January and six month later, I’m shooting a scene with her.”  And more months later, she and her husband Justin were attending a garden party at Oprah’s home.  Who knew!

This busy young mom likes to keep it real.  Her daily makeup routine tends to be quick and easy.  When she and her hubby are trying to get their two girls dressed, fed, and out the door, she can’t spend a lot of time on her morning routine.   When there’s a red carpet event, web series to shoot, or a speaking engagement on the calendar, she takes more time to glam it up.

Most days, Charity is carrying a black leather Coach bag.  This classic tote is the perfect bag to put all her necessities in it plus a treat or two for her girls.  Its simple, classic style is the perfect take-along for running errands or personal appearances.

In My Bag

Makeup On Aisle 64_Denise and her Chelsea ShopperWhat’s In My Bag?

In My Bag is a monthly feature where I show what’s inside my handbag at that particular point in time.  I got the idea from The Beauty Look Book.  She has the most beautiful handbags!  I always thought it was interesting to see what’s inside another woman’s bag. My family used to play this game at showers called Purse Search and it was always hilarious.  Since I am borrowing the idea from The Beauty Look Book, I thought I’d tweak it a bit.  Every few months, I’m going to feature other women and show you what’s in their handbags, but I get to go first.

Makeup On Aisle 64_In My Bag - Chelsea Shopper It’s December and in the Midwest, winter is hard upon us.  Not much snow just yet but the chill is definitely in the air.  It was 31 degrees outside today. That means you’re bundled up — coats with hoods, leather gloves, and leggings or warm socks inside some kickin‘ boots or classic street shoes.  This time of the year, I reserve hose and three inch heels for church or special occasions.  And, because it’s winter, I carry products to help me deal with the chapped lips, dry hands, and gusting winds.

Here’s what’s in my bag — my Dooney & Bourke Florentine Leather Chelsea Shopper in caramel — which just happened to be a birthday gift from my daughter.
