Handbag: Timbuk2 messenger bag

Are handbags status symbols? Yes they can be, but they don’t have to be. It depends on the person.

What does this bag say about you? I have an active lifestyle because I am a professional ballet dancer as well as Grand Canyon river guide during the summer. I need a bag that is functional.

If someone found your bag and looked inside, what would they think of you? I’m eclectic and adventurous.

What is the most important item you’ve carried in your bag? My "Nutcracker" tickets, of course. I won’t get in without those.

What is the strangest? An old cabinet handle from my new house. I am in the process of remodeling my kitchen.

Tell us about the first special bag you owned. When I was 12, my mom made me a hand-sewn pointe shoe bag with my name on it. Everyone wanted one so she ended up making them for all my dance friends.

Knockoffs: Love ’em or hate ’em? Having an expensive designer bag isn’t important to me, personally, so I don’t feel strongly one way or the other.

Image is … a reflection of who you are, what you care about and how you carry yourself — or at least it should be.

What’s in your bag? Water bottle, TheraBand, Vishnu Shitz rock necklace, tape measure, "The Nutcracker" ballet tickets, "Trekking in the Patagonia Andes."
