Carly Rae Jepsen, 27, empties out her purse for Us.

The “Tonight I’m Getting Over You” singer is ready whenever inspiration strikes. “I carry a guitar capo, to adjust the pitch in case I get into a jam session,” she says. “And I scribble lyrics on receipts– my accountant loves me!” What else does she stow in her Dolce & Gabbana Sicily purse?


“I get hungry for an escape from my day-to-day, so I always have a good book with me. I’m now reading Cheryl Strayed’s memoir, Wild — I totally recommend it.”

Chew on This

“I have a thing for Gummi bears and also weird gum flavors, like lemon meringue and chocolate chip mint. They’re so delicious!”

Instant Sophisticate

“I carry MAC’s Lady Danger red lipstick (, $15). It’s great for dressing up any look quickly.”

Dear Diary

“Every birthday, my best friend buys me ultra-girly floral journals. I try to bring them everywhere.”

Good Point

“The absolute most sentimental thing I keep on me is a compass my boyfriend [musician Matthew Koma] gave me. It’s my direction home.”
