I love Fashion but I hate paying tons of money to look great. I believe you need two things the knowledge of what looks good on you and the skill to find it for less. I encourage you to get rid of all the items in your closet that you do not wear. They cloud up your options to make really great outfits because you can’t see your clothes! If they are in good condition sell the at a consignment store or a place like Plato’s closet, or host a clothing swap. Clothing swaps are a blast!
I love to travel. It seems that my bag is often heavier than I am. I usually look like I am traveling with three friends based on the amount of things I bring and the size of my bag. I gave myself a challenge. It was to go away for 4 days and 3 nights and only bring my purse, brief case and this tiny suitcase. I was able to accomplish my goal my husband was in such shock he kept asking where my real bag was.
This is what I did to insure I had everything I needed and nothing I didn’t need. I packed my underwear first. I can’t leave home without those what would happen if there was an accident and I had dirty underwear. Then I looked at what I was going to be doing while I was in Chicago. I had a business conference, shopping, and three nights on the town to pack for. I decided the easiest thing to do was wear dresses. I packed 5 dresses and one pair of jeans and one pair of shorts and one set of pjs. I packed two shirts, a bathing suit, and 5 pairs of shoes. I wore the largest pair of shoes on the plane. I then packed up all my make up and hair care items in a plastic bag. I rolled my clothes so they fit easier and stuck my make up stuff in plastic bags in my shoes. I made sure to pack similar color stories so my shoes matched everything as did my purse. I always bring my metallic shoes because they match everything! I made sure my dresses could go from day to evening with a change of shoes. I packed so well I didn’t even wear all of the clothes I brought and I had space to bring back a couple of items.
