If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably wondered what celebrities add to their carts, not JAR brooches or Louis XV chairs. hair spray and the electric toothbrushWe asked fashion stylist and home goods store owner Beverly Nguyen Beverly’skitchenware brands material‘The latest collaborators of — about the pens she keeps in every purse, the suitcase she uses to carry clothes (and chicken), and the “very serious” scissors she recommends for left-handers.
when I started working at trendI visited the YSL office and found a very beautiful pencil. A uniform pen should be adopted. What pens do I really like? Since then — I think it was 2013 — I was like, I’m committed to the pen, that’s all, that is Pentel. This pen brings me a lot of joy. I buy hundreds of them, so I have at least 2-3 pens in every bag. If you’re going out to dinner or something, the bag he changes every other day or every day, twice a day. Whether your phone breaks down, you need directions, or you need to write someone a note, it’s comforting to know that you have it on hand. In fact, it happened quite a lot during Fashion Week. My phone kept breaking and my wallet couldn’t fit in my Nokia charger, so I started writing down my next destination on paper.
Barkey’s water bottle was born while living in Los Angeles a few years ago. I grew up in California, where she hadn’t lived in 7 or 8 years, so I forgot how bad the tap water was. I basically lived with a monk and he introduced me to this whole sustainability, composting, camping lifestyle. There are some things you can really take away from hereThat was Barkey. In fact, it’s a beautiful ritual. With the charcoal filter in the base, you don’t actually need to replace it. It depends on how often you fill it, but usually it’s six months. It’s like a drip coffee system. From there you get filtered fresh water, but I think it’s also great that it stays cold.
This suitcase is very important to me. I use it quite a lot every day. I have traveled a lot for work and for the summer and am still styling or moving things from the store.I always keep this suitcase full because it is very easy to carry and nothing will break. [for a food event]I need to store these compact tupperware because I cook in a separate kitchen. Because it requires you to enter the Uber and sit in a certain direction.
Scent is very familiar to me and I think it is important for everyone to have their own scent.For me it can really calm my nerves and anxiety. It’s masculine, but clean. I’ve been wearing it for 10 years. I first found it in a small little shop in London. I’m in his early 20s and I don’t think he even figured out how to convert pounds to US dollars. I am as if Oh my god, everything here is so expensiveBut I wanted to get a travel token. I am obsessed with smells.i must have it, it was in my price range. I put it on and it has stayed with me ever since.
My Chanel hand cream reminds me of my mother who always carried Chanel perfumes and lipsticks in her purse.My parents are from Vietnam. They met on a ship bound for America as refugees. They had zero dollars. Then their business — they worked in fashion, were manufacturers, sewed for a living — finally took a turn for the better and could afford a bigger house and more things. [This hand cream] Highly moisturizing and addictive. It’s also very pretty. It’s the perfect little luxury to throw in your bag.
I am addicted to scissors. As an adult, I think having lots of scissors everywhere is very important, along with new underwear, and in the kitchen he absolutely needs two scissors. You should have one in your office. Must have a pair in the closet. These Guggenheim things are extremely durable. I love having this very serious, industrial-strength pair in my kit, especially since I’m always working with clothes. They’re at Rimowa . I’m left handed so I really feel I need something that’s actually very durable and makes me feel in control. These definitely do it.
This company has this beautiful paper packaging that is so much fun to tear apart. I often give Mater soaps as housewarming gifts. I like the roughness of the bar. I keep roses by the sink and wormwood by the shower. After using it for a while, you will get used to it. It’s not like a dial soap that has ridges that go through and fall apart.
My foam roller is an extension of me. I need that foam roller every time I can get my hands on it, even if it’s for a minute. I used to style people for , and I would fly out every Thursday and come back Sunday night with red eyes and my body falling apart. When I started Pilates, an instructor said, send foam rollers to hotel roomsNow I do it all the time. Running outside takes a toll on your body, so you need it for your calves, hips, and neck. Honestly, it’s too painful and embarrassing, so I have to do it alone. It’s like a Q-tip. You’re ashamed of your pain, but it feels so good.
The first time I put this bra on, it didn’t come off for days. I’ve been wearing women’s dresses to her carpet events in Red for her ten years. I grew up with her two sisters and her one mother. When it comes to body image, I think it’s very important how lingerie brings us together. I struggle with underwired and padded bras, and struggle with dainty, simple triangular bras. Balconette achieves this perfect half-her corset fit.

I’ve been working on this for a year. I’m biased because I obviously created this collaboration with them. They are also Asian American which is great. If you know anything about blades and sharpness and design intricacies, these knives are very good and very impressive. There is also a new knife guard. I usually only use matte paper, but I designed this indigo light denim fabric with red swirly Beverly logo embroidery and stitching on the edges.
