Jetting off to Cartegena? Planning a trek to the Amazon? Booking that flight to Anatolia? Of course you are!
Which is why you should really be taking packing tips from Anna Dello Russo, who has suggestions for all three locations.
The always helpful editor-at-large of Vogue Nippon loves dispensing her hints on how to navigate a most glamorous life, from what to wear to the Met Gala (hint: haute couture!) to how to store your huge collection of clothing (by the whole outfit, of course).
So we were so pleased when Dello Russo posted her "10 TOP rules to pack for VACATION" on her eponymous blog.
Her thoughts are all highly instructive, if not all too consistent: the first tip, "The suitcase must be LIGHT as a feather: It's forbidden to pay OVERWEIGHT!" seems to slightly contradict Tip Six:
Take care of your BEAUTY-CASE:
UV Protecting Fluid,
Moisturizing Gel Cream,
Eye Balm Intense, Regenerating Serum,
Hydrating Infusion, Cleansing Foam,
Oil Absorbing Tonic,
Ultimate Sun Protection Cream,
After Browning Lotion...
all these are not sharable,
you can't borrow from the others,
you can't find everywhere.
Yikes -- we better hit up the closest Sephora ASAP. Other essentials to stuff in our Louis Vuitton Monogram totes include only one pair of high heels, many bathing suits and the always necessary "swim-kit," including fashionable "GOOGLES" a.k.a. goggles .
We would kill to see just what kind of glamorous swim goggles Dello Russo rocks on the beaches of Cartegena...we're hoping they look something like this.
