Polly's Maxximum Bag

Polly's Maxximum Bag

I love this suede bag because its eye-popping color brightens my mostly black wardrobe and it's roomy enough to qualify as luggage.
* Backstage passes. I was covering parties and shows during NY fashion week.
* I always feel chic when someone asks for my card and I whip out this Gucci card case. A girl can dream, can't she?
* That's an Emergen-C vitamin powder packet peeking out of my YSL wallet. It saved my health during a crazy week.
* The New York Times. Tuesday's Science section is my fave. I'm a nerd at heart.
* My digital recorder remembers celebrity quotes for me. But I have to confess that when I listened back, I sounded like a total kiss-up interviewing Rachel Bilson.

Ivanka Trump's Armani Bag

Ivanka Trump’s Armani Bag
Time Inc. Digital Studio

Inside her bold purple crocodile bag by Giorgio Armani, the brainy beauty totes a few everyday essentials-like a leather-trimmed Hermaes keychain, her well-worn passport (she's sent it in twice to have additional pages added) and a good book-in this case Burr, a historical novel by Gore Vidal. "I don't like to waste time reading trash. I saw a documentary on the author and picked this up; I'm loving it!" says Trump. Last but not least, she can't leave home without her coveted Chanel lip gloss. "My lips are always chapped-probably from all my yapping-so I'm addicted to lip balms and glosses. I have, like, six in my bag-in similar colors. I just reach in and grab one."
