The Art of Packing.

No matter where you are headed on your vacation, once you have your tickets and have booked your hotel reservation, it’s time to get working on your wardrobe. Most people over-pack, but believe me it’s not fun hauling around heavy luggage. The best way to travel is with a single carry on item that won’t get lost and that you wont have to wait for in baggage claim. Traveling with less is better!

That problem can be solved by sticking to an “unglamorous” carryon bag and packing only what you really need. For clothes, it is best to pick one color scheme for the trip. Be a ruthless editor…take ONLY a few basics. Think versatility: day to night, mix and match, keep it simple. Also, always make sure to put an extra bag inside your suitcase in case you do some shopping.

A secret must when stuffing your suitcase is to roll. Always roll your clothes if you can, it gives you so much more space. Roll up t-shirts or light sweaters and fit 5 in a baggie, then push all the air out and it becomes a little package. The same with skirts or pants and you never have to wear the same thing twice! If you’re worried about your clothes getting wrinkled, don’t be. Most hotels have steamers and you can always steam a bathroom to get your clothes wrinkle free.

The real key to packing light is to only pack three pairs of shoes: metallic heels, metallic flats because they work with any outfit also, bring a pair of walking or running shoes. For jewelry, bring beads or one bold necklace that can dress up any outfit and stick to that. Scarves and Pashminas are a must as well. Perfect for going to the beach or out to dinner. Sunglasses NEVER (EVER) leave home with out them!!!!!

Fashion From The North Pole

What is Mr Lagerfield trying to telling us now? Aside from his astounding designs as creative director of Chanel. His Fall 2010 Show seems to be directed toward the ever-growing problem of global warming. Melting Icebergs on the set. Models in HUGE wooly mammoth looking costumes. Boots included! Obvi the fur is fake, but I love that Lagerfeld- aside from his remarkable and exquisite designs- is bringing up problems and making a statement other than just fashion. If we have learned anything from Paris fashion week, its that fur is a must for fall!!! View the rest of the collection here.

Where can I buy tickets?

As a avid lover of all things Yves Saint Laurent, I got tremendously excited when hearing the news that a new exhibition was opening in Paris on March 11th. The Petit Palais (The Paris Museum of Fine Art) will be hosting 300 outfits spanning the designers 40-year career. YSL was a genius of fashion most recognized for creating the women's smoking jacket,leopard prints and women's suits. Needless to say. As an avid lover of this beloved designer. I WILL BE THERE!

That bitch has everything

Barbie. She's got it all, the man, the clothes, the Malibu beach house, and now we have one more reason to be jealous of the skinny bitch we all know and love. Tonight The Christian Louboutin Barbie Doll is for sale. Wearing an adorable khaki dress and to die for magenta thigh high fringe suede boots...the hottie looks as smoking and sassy as ever. Note...Also loving the red hair as opposed to the usual bleach blonde.

From Fashion to Film

I finally managed to find time this weekend to head to the movies and catch some of the flicks that are up for the Academy Awards this Sunday. I am still in awe of the amazing beautiful cinematography that was Tom Ford's, A Single Man. It was absolutely beautiful! Julianne Moore is to die for, Colin Firth is wonderfully elegant, and the rose gold colors that ran throughout most of the movie were just one of the obvious signs of Ford's beautiful work.
