It’s In The Bag – Style + Security

Trying to decide what bag to travel with, can be daunting. You want it to look good, yet be difficult to pick pocket, plus hold ALL of your must-haves as well as what you buy.

Sometimes one has to be PRACTICAL.

A friend of mine found this bag, and I think she chose wisely, so here are the details.

Personally, I think this bag is great for traveling to other countries and for out of towners, touring New York City.

It is available in a variety of colors and styles, all at a very reasonable price. Only $39.46 for the black style as in this photo.

“I was somewhat nervous about inviting Scarlett into my closet but quickly realized she would be a most welcome guest.  She spent four solid hours working incredibly hard sorting things, making helpful comments and suggestions, and helping to organize as she rehung the items  that survived the cut.  She helped me make new outfits without me having to buy a thing, but even more helpful was the feeling that she was sitting on my shoulder when I shopped after her visit.  I could hear her saying things like “Stay in the Petite Department,” “Don’t worry about the size, but rather the fit,” and “Push up those sleeves!”  She is very generous with her time in even offering follow-up comments.  I consider her visit a great investment in my wardrobe!” S.P.

How To Pack a Suitcase for a Week in a Carry-On

How To Pack A Suitcase for A Week in a Carry-On

One of the tips I shared with you in my last post, was that each piece of clothing must be able to be worn at least 2 different ways. That guideline works for the accessories you bring as well, including handbags, jewelry, scarves, and shoes.

Here is what I brought with me:


Three pairs of shoes. 2 low heeled sandals and 1 pair of sneakers but they are not the kinds you wear to the gym. Mine are black suede, and yes they can get wet. When I wear mine with jeans, they almost disappear. I only brought shoes that I can do lots of walking in, but you can pack heels to substitute for one flat pair if your trip is more business than touring.


One handbag is really all you need, and mine was a bright blue which went with EVERY outfit! It had enough room for keys, cell phones, cameras, IPAD, business cards, makeup, etc. I didn’t bring all those things, but you might.


One patterned scarf that went with almost every single outfit. I love scarves, and like how they can add some pop and pizazz to a simple outfit.


Two necklaces. One blue and silver, the other brown/cream.
One silver watch.
One multi-strand bracelet with brown, black and cream colors.
One silver hoop pairing of earrings, that I can change the ball drop to three different colors.

Stay tuned for How To Pack A Suitcase for A Week in a Carry-On Part 3, when I show some of the different outfits that can be created with very few clothes.
