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!
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.
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!).
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…
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).
Meet Precious 7: it’s not just a brand-new place to discover new designers. It’s an innovative collective of fashion experts who curate showcases devoted to designers with fresh visions. Tina and I are on the board of advisors, and we’re so proud to be part of this exciting project.
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.
