Plain and simple: That’s what Luann de Lesseps aims for in her bag of choice. “I’m practical,” the star of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York City (Wednesdays, 9 p.m.) says of her ­Michael Kors crossbody. “I like things that are easy so I don’t have to change my bag a lot.”

The former countess, 53, spills the tea on her everyday essentials.

Read Her Lips
“I wear a lot of Chanel lipsticks. Not wearing lipstick is like going out without eyebrows. I mean, you have to have your lips on.”

Moment of Zen
“I’m reading Perfectly Yourself by Matthew Kelly. I love it. It’s all about being the best version of yourself that you can be. I love books like that right now, uplifting and spiritual.”

Making a Spectacle
“I can’t live without my Foster Grant glasses. Once fortysomething hits, the eyes start going. I should make my own glasses. Though I think [Real Housewives of Atlanta’s] Cynthia Bailey has that covered [with her eyewear line].”

What a Gem
“I carry a clear crystal for good energy. I was given it at the Kripalu Center for Yoga & Health in The Berkshires.”

Get Odor It
“I love matches. Everyone should carry matches for, you know, when you’re a guest at somebody’s house. It’s true.”

What else is inside Lusseps’ bag? An iPhone X in a pink silicone case; Apple AirPods; Tory Burch Eclectic Runway T Square Sunglasses; a scarf; statement necklaces; a Chanel concealer; OPI Nail Lacquer in red; XenClips (Use code LUANN to get 10% off your order); Ardell Magnetic Lashes; cash; Trident gum; a Listerine Pocketmist; socks; a black Moleskin; a Zebra G-301 Gel Retractable Pen; a pack of Ice Breakers Ice Cubes Gum and Woolzies Lavender Oil.
