Pack Light



Fanny Packs

I have definitely worn more fanny packs this spring/summer versus crossbody bags. How about you?

I will say they are perfect for travel. They don’t weigh much. They are large enough to hold the essentials. Not to mention there are some really fashion forward options available.

The featured images highlight 2 fanny packs that I wear again and again. The white fanny pack is super roomy and see through. The lavendar fanny pack is compact and structured.

Chime in and let me know how you pack light. Did you rock fanny packs this summer? Assessing your fanny pack collection which ones do you reach for repeatedly?

Happy Shopping,

Community, Fashion & School Supplies

Today we came together to have a fashion show. The host and co-host stand in solidarity. With one another and the community.

No cover charge for the audience. We only asked that they donate school supplies to give to the children at the show.

Fashion Pallet Project

To the left of my arm are pallets. They’ve been discarded by a local business. They’re FREE!

We’re using them to construct a runway for an upcoming fashion show.

Fashion is definitely one of those industry that could do much better with regards to sustainability. With that in mind (and our budget), we’re sourcing reclaimed wood.

Travel in NYC

I’ll keep this NYC travel tip short yet sweet. A durable tote is the way to go. It’s not about having the latest “it bag.” It’s about being able to stash your phone, umbrella and cardigan- or retrieve it.

It’s also a cool way to support your favorite Manhattan coffee shop.
