■ Who? Katherine Wind, assistant manager of Spa Mio at M Resort Spa Casino
■ Location: Spa Mio
■ Handbag: Coach Mia tote bag
■ Are handbags status symbols? No, as long as you have confidence in the bag you carry, you will exude class.
■ What does this bag say about you? My bag shows that I am unique with color and versatile with size.
■ If someone found your bag and looked inside, what would they think of you? I am organized and a working professional as I always have two cell phones in my purse.
■ What’s the most important item you’ve carried in your bag? Protein bars. These are a great backup on busy days to keep your energy high.
■ What’s the strangest item you’ve carried in your bag? Human hair. Our salon specializes in hair extensions. One morning I had to pick up an order for a VIP guest.
■ Tell us about the first special bag you owned. I had never owned a designer bag and for my birthday last year my husband went out and purchased a Coach purse as a gift. He picked out the Coach East West Gallery tote without my help and I love it.
■ Knockoffs: Love ’em or hate ’em? Indifferent. The important thing is that you love it. I learned that from my mom.
■ Image is … how you project yourself to the world based on your self-worth and confidence.
■ What’s in your bag? 1. Blackberry, 2. Protein bar, 3. Moroccanoil (perfect to catch any flyaways and add shine to your hair), 4. Earrings (I always have an extra set in case I run out of the house without a pair on) 5. Obagi Healthy Skin Sunscreen (a must for any local resident), 6. Jane Iredale Mystikol eyeliners.
