Top 5 Packing Essentials: Making It Work

Last week I appeared on Good Morning Texas to talk packing tips. The less you have to lug around when traveling, the better, but you also want to bring everything you need. With a few special tricks and some organizers, you can fit everything and maybe even have room left over for some shopping!

CA 5 Travel Bag by PB 0110

PB 0110 CA 5 Travel Bag: Ready, Jetset, Go!

The overnight bag has never been so chic. Or this unrecognizable, for that matter. You wouldn’t guess this is a piece of luggage just by glancing at it; it looks far too sophisticated. It’s also as modern and futuristic as it appears.

Smart Luggage Solutions: Well Traveled

I’m in New York City for a few days, and every time I pack for trips, I can’t help but think of better, more efficient ways to travel. Meaning, better, more efficient luggage. Not to brag or anything, but I’m pretty obsessed when it comes to smart suitcases and beyond. This isn’t about traveling “in style,” per se. It’s about traveling with as little stress and mess as humanly possible.

Best Snobby Designer Sales of the Season

Remember when it seemed like can’t-miss sales rolled around twice a year, max? Times have changed, and with designers releasing more throughout the year (hello, Resort and Pre-Fall!), that means more amazing steals to tide us over. This season, use the latest markdowns as an opportunity to invest in a longstanding staple. Without further fuss, here are the best sale picks, my top bag from each major shopping destination:

Travel with Ease and in Peace with Lipault Luggage

Travel with Ease and in Peace with Lipault Luggage

I’m a born and raised New Yorker so of course I love black, but there are few things that give me as much anxiety as loosing my luggage and when your suitcase is just one black one in a sea of near identical ones, this is very no bueno! Luckily I’m now a Lipault Luggage convert (sorry Samsonite!).

Golden Goose Double Zip Bag

Golden Goose Double Zip Bag: Ready for Takeoff

The ultimate bag would be one you can buy for your man and sometimes borrow because you actually bought it for yourself and needed a slick justification. This would be one of those bags. The carry-on is something that I have perfected. I bring A LOT of stuff on the plane with me – a blanket, a pillow, an eye mask, a cosmetic pouch with maximum hydration products, food, water, my iPad…

The Five Essentials: The Best of 2013

As we look forward to the Resort treats, covetable Spring musts, and everything else tempting us into 2014, let’s pause and take a look back at the best of the past year. A lot of bags have come, stolen our hearts, and gone, but only a handful have what it takes to withstand the test of time (even if we’re only talking 12 months).

Dolce & Gabbana Anna Crossbody Box Bag

Dolce & Gabbana Anna Crossbody Box Bag: The Mile-High Club

This bag is a trip. It’s essentially a tiny suitcase, and how cute is that? It reminds me of the old days of airplane travel (before my time!) when people got dressed up to fly and flight attendants were chic and glamorous.
