81. Is there an article of clothing, a piece of make-up, or an accessory that you carry with you or wear every day?

No, although I do carry my blue eyeliner around in my bag in case of needing to 'dress up' quickly.

Mascara! Also, I usually have one of my coats in tow, just in case it gets cold which it’s bound to do in San Francisco.

I would say my wedding ring and my opal ring, but lately I've had some major dry skin on my hands that has kept me from wearing rings all the time. It still feels a bit weird. I usually have lip balm of some sort either in my pocket or in my bag.

No. I used to wear rings my ex-boyfriends gave me, but then I realized I didn't have to do that if I didn't want to, so I stopped.

This changes over the year. It used to be a necklace for a while. Lately, the only common thing is my FitBit.

I carry Burts Bees chapstick with me at all times. So does my mom. We treat it like it can soothe any malady.

warby parker sunglasses & my jo malone perfume

red lipstick / mascara
silver pinky ring

My prescription glasses.

I wear the diamond studs my parents gave me for my 21st birthday every day (I have a second piercing so I change my front holes daily), and usually my aforementioned talon ring. I always carry my Revlon Cherries in the Snow lipstick, even if I’m not wearing it, because I bought it in high school when I saw a model with coloring similar to mine wearing it. I mentioned it to my mother because I thought the name was kind of funny and she got this weird look on her face and said that was my nana’s (her mom’s) signature shade, and she died with a tube of it in her purse. My mom still has that tube, and I hope it eventually gets passed to me, but for now I have the same tube I bought in high school with me (I’m 41).

I always wear lipstick, even to the beach or camping.

I usually wear these kind of ugly but very comfortable black flats, though I think they’ve officially fallen apart.

I always carry Burt’s Bees beeswax lip balm. If I didn’t use it every hour I’m awake, my lips would be flaky and bloody.

This wool scarf from Turkey that my aunt brought back in the 80s. I’m rarely without it. It’s so big too, it’s almost literally a grown-up security blanket. And then I’m always equipped if I get cold (which I often do), as I can take my giant scarf off, unfold it, and voila! Victorian Grandma-style Lap-blanket (only missing a little lap dog)! It also doubles as a pillow on buses, and a picnic blanket in parks. I thought I lost it this past winter, and think I actually went through a few of those ‘Stages of Grief’.
