Jennifer Nettles Carries Dance Socks in Her Tote

Tote-ally cool! Jennifer Nettles revealed the contents of her black bag just for Us Weekly in the mesmerizing stop-motion video above. The country star told Us that she wasn’t too picky when she chose the Madewell bag ($188, madewell.com). “I was looking for a good, sturdy tote, and I came across it and said, ‘You will work great!’” she recalled. “It travels with me everywhere.”

The roomy purse houses a blend of beauty products and sentimental items that keep the mom of Magnus, 3, ready for the streets and the, umm, dance studio? One quirky essential includes a pair of what she calls dance stockings. “They’re little, ankle-length socks that I use with my dance shoes whenever I have a dance class,” she told Us. (She likes grooving to “Giant” by Matt Nathanson, for the record!)

Other go-tos include the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick ($3, drugstore.com) for her lips and her hands, MAC’s Spice lip liner ($16.50, maccosmetics.com), pink Wet n Wild blush ($3 wetnwildbeauty.com) and a cool pair of Ahlem sunglasses.

“They make me feel like I’m in some sort of Quentin Tarantino movie!” she said. 

And when hunger hits, Nettles, who leads the Outnumber Hunger initiative, likes to snack on a peanut butter dark-chocolate Nature Valley protein granola bar.
