I’ve had a lot of event travel (weddings, benefits, conferences, etc.) lately and I finally feel that I’ve got a handle on packing for this type of thing. Usually I blow it by packing way too many shoes. Two is my hard limit now. I’m a reformed woman. Two pairs of shoes, a two color palate and just a sprinkling of jewelry.
Frivolity isn’t just frowned upon in New England, at times it feels like it’s viewed with downright suspicion. When it comes to style and spending, there’s still a strong puritanical streak here in Boston. So when I’m in NYC, it feels great to let my frivolous flag fly. In my case that means Laduree macaroons, Boissier candy and Cire Trudon candles. On an only slightly more practical note, I’m also hoping to check out these lovely gloves and clutch from Mulberry. Is the clutch too pink? It’s hard to tell online. It might not be much easier when I’m drunk on NYC frivolity.
