    It's difficult not to fall under Janina Joffe's spell. Whether she's joking about Marnie singing Kanye West on Girls or showing off the basketball and NBA Barbie perched on a bookshelf piled with every art tome on the planet, the director of online gallery East of Mayfair simply radiates light.

(Sad times, we know.) That, in turn, can lead to toting around two bags instead of one. Here's the dilemma: Our regular satchel read
