|Talk about traveling in style, n'est-ce pas?|
Some of us actually like the idea of paring down. Most of us have no choice. In the final installment of our series, I'm turning to my great pal Deja Pseu from Une Femme , who truly does have the system down to a fine art. I've witnessed the tricks that come out of her bag. Magic.
TiS: Boarding Pass (this is the one with the polyvore on the floor capsule wardrobe)
TiS: Cleared for Takeoff (this one shows how I packed it all in a carry on bag)
On the subject of shoes, I agree with Kathy Peck, let's adopt the stylish Italian shop girl trend, Hogans. I had a pair of Tod black patent loafers (not driving shoes) I literally walked the soles off in New York. My brilliant shoe man, Monsieur Cotte, repaired them.
And finally, I've lifted Kit's comment right from my post -- how extraordinary is this technique? Do visit her at Chic Provence
I learned the BEST packing tip... take a hanger, put a plastic dry cleaning bag over it, then start "dressing" it with layers..first a pair of pants, then a tank top, then a shirt, then a sweater, then a jacket over that; include the scarf you would wear with this outfit..then top the whole thing off with another dry cleaning bag. Fold into thirds (or you could roll it), place in suitcase. When you get to the hotel, simply take the hanger out, give a good shake, and hang in the closet...voila! complete outfit, almost no wrinkles... I was so happy it worked so well on last trip to France in April!! Repeat with two more "outfits" and you are done... it's very effective and so simple!
