The lists are the key to preventing over packing for fashion week. If you start early enough, you’ll have plenty of time to edit.

Over the years, I have done a fair amount of packing. My understanding of the importance of packing was the summer I was 5 and I went to stay with my aunt and uncle and 15 cousins. My mother packed all of my clothes in a big suitcase with lists attached to the lid of all of my outfits. I had so many clothes I don’t think we had to do laundry for almost 2 months. However, at 5 I only had 3 pairs of shoes and the clothes were so small I only needed the one bag.
These days I do my own packing and make my own lists. My clothes are bigger and shoes more plentiful. So, the lists truly come in handy. I have told several friends about my lists. They think it’s obsessive. Here’s how I look at it, if you take the time to do the lists, it keeps you from asking yourself why did I bring this later. Organization and planning are the keys to your packing success.
I know this seems like a lot. It actually doesn’t take that long. It also allows you to be less impulsive and emotional about your packing. Your emotions only cloud your judgement.
And consider this, you’ll be in NYC for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week. Do you really think you’re NOT going to go shopping? Exactly.
So tonight my favorite orange Tod’s are going on the list. I’ll let you know if they make it to the tents.
