As a busy mom with lots of appointments, Muffie Potter Aston prefers — understandably — to carry a nice roomy handbag. While chronicling a weeks’ worth of her outfits for the Times, she mentions at least three different Birkins: one black, one burgundy, and one saddle leather. “I have everything in my Birkins. They hold my world together,” she explains. Also, for her daughter’s swim practice: “I layered, as it tends to heat up in the pool viewing area. I put on a taupe snakeskin-print blouse and a taupe Mongolian lamb vest.”
