Lets You Get Your Pour a Glass Anywhere

Bridal showers, PTA meetings, those hellish hours spent in doctors’ office waiting rooms — basically, any time you’ve secretly wished for a stiff drink — will never be the same. One company’s designed a line of handbags with a secret pouch for storing (and serving) wine, and a whole lot of it at that.

Each of Bella Vita’s PortoVino totes can hold up to two bottles of wine, which you can pour into a refillable pouch and store in a zippered, insulated pocket within the bag. No one will know it’s there — until you unbutton a flap on the side of the bag, pull out the spout and pour yourself a glass.

Though the bags, which retail for $75 apiece, can technically hold any drink, they’re designed specifically for vino, allowing you to “take the party with you” wherever you go. (Just make sure you’re not breaking any open container laws, okay?)

The best part, though? The tote’s roomy enough to hold your essentials: keys, wallet, phone, selection of artisanal cheeses and charcuterie, bottle opener, four-pack of glasses. You know, the absolute can’t-get-through-an-afternoon-withouts.

You see, women known for how they dress (Gilda Ambrosio, Caroline Issa, Giorgia Tordini, etc.) have been stepping out during the international Fashion Weeks wearing none other than trousers with elastic bands stitched to the hems that go around your foot so they stay in place while you do Jane Fonda aerobics or whatever. In other words, they are trying to make that ’80s relic, the stirrup pant, happen again — but actually making quite a convincing case for them?
