"I normally don't have this much stuff. I normally (just) have my tote (the bag on her right shoulder) and try to fit everything in there. Normally I even have my laptop in there, and lunch goes in there too. I'm going to yoga, and this (black bag) is my workout bag." What's right: Despite all that gear -- three separate pieces -- she looks chic and put together. What's wrong: The Gucci bag she uses as a tote is heavy, even when it's empty. And she confesses she's hauling two big bottles of water -- one sparkling, one regular -- a large cosmetics bag and more. "I guess I do need to clean out my bag." Miniature cosmetics, less water, a lighter tote bag would help.
