ATL It Girl Gives Us a Peek Inside Her Purse

By Jordan Hill | October 14, 2020 | Style & Beauty

ATL “it” girl Amanda Watkins lets us peek into her purse for an inside look at her must-have items for Fall.

Nothing is off limits for Amanda Watkins (@amwstyled), especially when it comes to sharing her love of fashion, beauty and design. The ATL resident got her start on the ’gram in 2019, documenting her favorite looks and sharing weekly sale finds with family and friends. Since then, the part-time hobby has expanded into a full-blown blog, and Watkins’ personal style has evolved with it. Her feed is a virtual look book, serving plenty of inspiration via trendy, contemporary and eye-catching ensembles that blend versatile finds with classic investment pieces. Here, Watkins gives us a glimpse into her go-to bag for fall, and all the items you won’t catch her without.
