■ Who? Sheila Davis, violinist for Phantom Las Vegas Spectacular
■ Location: Phantom Theater at The Venetian
■ Handbag: Jimmy Choo Tulita bag
■ Are handbags status symbols? Yes, they are, but to me they are more a reflection of my style and mood. When I’m feeling subdued I go with a black bag, but I always wear black when I perform, so sometimes I let my bag be my standout accessory by using color or exotic skins.
■ What does this bag say about you? It says that I’m classic but relaxed and I love great quality.
■ If someone found your bag and looked inside, what would he/she think of you? That I’m busy, but also organized. And, that I must have some weird toy thing going on!
■ What’s the most important item you’ve carried in your bag?
My mother’s wedding ring. She passed away in January. I remember as a child admiring its beauty and what it represented.
■ What’s the strangest item you’ve carried in your bag? Star Wars Legos. Being a mom of two boys, ages 5 and 6, you’ve got to be prepared. If I pull out one of their forgotten Legos, they become so quiet when we are shopping or eating out. It’s like magic.
■ Tell us about the first special bag you owned. My parents gave me a Coach bag when I was in middle school. It was when Coach bags were only made of heavy leather. That was one of my first designer pieces and what led to me loving beautiful, quality-made things.
■ Knockoffs: Love ’em or hate ’em? There’s nothing like the real thing!
■ Image is … how you present yourself to the world.
■ What’s in your bag?
1. My boys’ pictures, 2. Clive Christian X perfume (Oh my! I love this gift from my husband. The most incredible fragrance I’ve ever worn.), 3. Cosmo White teeth whitener, 4. Ray Ban aviator sunglasses, 5. Peter Infeld violin strings, 6. Chocolate Bouchons (I’m so lucky to have the Bouchon counter in front of the theater. Since I don’t drink coffee, their Bouchons are my favorite pick me up.)
