■ Who? Melissa Steffen, aesthetician at The Spa at Trump
■ Location: The Spa at Trump
■ Handbag: Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene canvas bag
■ Are handbags status symbols? No. Handbags are about style. I would never look at someone differently because of the handbag they carry.
■ What does this bag say about you? It says I am classic, stylish and the red lining says fun!
■ If someone found your bag and looked inside, what would they think of you? That I am a Barbie girl in a Barbie world.
■ What’s the most important item you’ve carried in your bag? A picture of me and my husband on our wedding day.
■ What’s the strangest item you’ve carried in your bag? A crown and sash. I am a former Miss Teen Nevada.
■ Tell us about the first special bag you owned. The first truly special handbag I received was a jaw dropping black patent leather Chanel bag my husband surprised me with. He is a keeper.
■ Knockoffs: Love ’em or hate ’em? Hate them because, to me, it is putting out a dishonest image.
■ Image is … outwardly projecting one’s natural inner beauty.
■ What’s in your bag? Journal (I am a creative person and love to write), my aesthetic’s tool kit (Being an aesthetician is not a 9-to-5 job, it is a 24-hours-a-day lifestyle), coconut water (I need to stay hydrated because I practice Bikram yoga six days a week), Sugar Factory Couture Pop (As much as I love healthy and organic foods, every girl has a sweet tooth), Cartier Delices Parfum (Because smelling good is a must) Mason Pearson boar’s hairbrush (My hair has been colored from blond to black. That brush keeps it strong and shiny).
