Shannon Purser likes to keep it sentimental in her Zac Posen bag. “It becomes this carryall for everything I’ve accumulated,” the star of NBC’s Rise (Tuesdays, 9 p.m. ET) says. Her favorite token: a Christmas card from costar Josh Radnor. “He gave it to me on set,” she recalls. “That is so sweet.”
The 20-year-old spills on her other goods.
“My wallet is this one I got at a convention. It’s shaped like the Marauder’s Map from Harry Potter. My keys are also on a little Hogwarts symbol keychain — true nerd.”
Music to Her Ears
“I have my black Bose noise-cancelling headphones — the big over-the-ear ones. I like them. They make me feel like I’m in the ’80s.”
Chew on This
“I carry around gum — the kind shaped like cubes. I just love those. I don’t know why. There’s something so satisfying about them just because they’re square.”
She’s Got It Covered
“My phone case is actually, oh God, it’s a coffin and it says ‘Bye’ on it with a flower above it. I like it. It’s quirky.”
What else is inside her bag? A Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Hibiscus; a Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer; a Marc Jacobs Dew Drops Coconut Gel Highlighter; a Sephora eyelash curler; an Aloxxi Thermal Styling Spray; a Lush Breath of Fresh Air toner; an Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in No 1; Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell; an Atlanta Library card; two Starbucks gift cards; a Sephora VIB card; some loose change; a Barnes & Noble membership card; a Chick-fil-A card; a Poland Spring water bottle; Planters Honey Roasted Peanuts; Polaroids; Ibuprofen; Midol; plane ticket stubs and an EpiPen.
