We’re finding it hard to get out of shopping mode after a month of buying amazing gifts, and apparently celebs feel the same way. So we’re doubling up on What We’re Buying today — first sharing Louise Roe’s best gift for her girlfriends, and now bringing you Janelle Monáe’s recent treat for herself. (And yeah, we kind of want one after seeing this cute pic.) Check out her adorable bag, below, see what we can’t resist right now and share your own top finds in the comments!

Janelle Monáe, hit recording artist, producer and CoverGirl spokeswoman: My favorite item right now is definitely my cross purse from Chanel, from Karl Lagerfeld’s Cruise Line Collection. I love it because it’s small and I don’t get the opportunity to clutter up my purse. So I keep my ID in there, I keep my “Hot 305” lipstick, my mascara in there, and just small things … like some dollars so that I can tip valets. It’s black and white — which is my signature, and it just straps across my chest, and I just love it!
And speaking of mascara, I love what CoverGirl is doing with their mascaras. For every purchase of the specially marked #GirlsCan Mascaras, they will donate $1 for each sold to selected charitable organizations that help women break barriers. I believe that all women have superpowers within them, and it’s so important for me to work with a brand that believes in empowering women.
