How do you pack for a commute when showering in work?

I've got quite a collection of clothes and toiletries at work that I've built up. Always have spare pants, tights and deodorant in the office. I fold clothes up as neatly as possible and put everything in plastic bags to prevent them getting wet.

Dry hair shampoo always useful.

It’s nice to have bike bags rather than a rucksack so you don't get so sweaty.

Quick dry towel, wash-kit, make-up essentials, hairbrush, pants and bra (!) and the lightest work shoes I have.
