This week, Gracie Martinez, owner of The Pilates Studio Las Vegas and Pilates master trainer who teaches Megaformer, gives us a glimpse of what she carries in her bag. Here, the former Jubilee! dancer and LA choreographer carries a white leather Burberry handbag. Find out what's inside Martinez's handbag following the jump.
What kind of handbag?
White patent leather Burberry
What does your handbag say about you?
It fits a lot of stuff. I have to have my iPad with me at all times.
What's the most important thing in your handbag?
Ipad and my Verizon mobile hot spot.
How about the most surprising thing?
Jewelry. That is my new passion and when I finish a new piece I will always put it in my purse to show clients who have purchased other pieces from me.
What was the first handbag you carried that was memorable?
My first Burberry, which I still adore. It is black leather, has spikes all over and looks very classy.
Name eight items in your handbag and why you must carry them:
1. My iPad
3. Carmex lip gloss
4. Two pairs of headphones because I am always wrecking them.
6. Hand lotion
7. Make-up bag
