Today, The Gazillionaire's assistant Penny Pibbets from Absinthe at Caesars Palace gives us a glimpse of what she carries in her handbag. Here, she carries a jean fannypack. Find out what's inside Pibbet's handbag following the jump.
What kind of handbag?
A jean fannypack because I tend to misplace things and jean goes with everything!
What does your handbag say about you?
I don't trust people.
What's the most important thing in your handbag?
A good luck button I found in my grandma's couch that smells funny.
How about the most surprising thing?
The secret code that opens a portal to hell inviting Satan and his fellow demons back up to Earth.
What was the first handbag you carried that was memorable?
My grandma's vintage Elizabeth Arden handbag she made me carry when we would walk through the Flamingo buffet and she would shove shrimp in there.
Name eight items in your handbag and why you must carry them:
1. Inhaler or else I could die.
2. A drum key because it's cool to bust it out when someone needs it.
3. ChapStick in case someone wants a kiss. Haven't needed it yet.
4. My dollar bill signed by RZA from Wu-Tang.
5. Unused dog poop bags.
6. Kleenex (my face tends to get wet quite a bit).
7. Anywhere from $3 to $7 in quarters in case there's a claw machine.
