There are a few items that every gal needs when going on a hike: cushy sneakers, a handy water bottle, a…designer bag?
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills stars Kyle Richards and Brandi Glanville lived up to their tony zip code's reputation during a recent hike in Los Angeles' Runyon Canyon, when they hit the trails armed with luxe carryalls.
While most of us would probably limit our outdoor workout accessories to a fab yet practical pair of sunnies, the posh pair opted to tote their drool-worthy purses along the dirt paths at the popular Southern California fitness destination.
Glanville carried what appeared to be a Birkin bag—quite the upgrade from a traditional gym bag!—with an all-black ensemble, while Richards showed off a black embellished bag, which she paired with an eye-catching two-tone shirt and cropped stretchy pants.
While we're all about making the most of our designer bags (might as well get more bang out of our buck!), we're not so sure we would risk ruining the fine leather with our sweaty palms as we got our fitness on.
At the very least, we'd opt for a hands-free cross-body bag while we stylishly worked up a sweat. Although, given the fact that quality bags often seem to weigh more than more inexpensive purses due to leather and embellishments, perhaps the Beverly Hills babes were using their accessories as chic alternatives to hand weights?
