Those are the dimensions of the new purse I bought for my trip to NYC tomorrow. The purse is 10 inches deep and 17 inches long. These are Important Dimensions because everything I’ll need for 2 days and 1 night must fit into this purse. This purse will be all the luggage I bring to New York.
I think I must have some gypsy blood in me. Or maybe it’s hobo blood. Whatever you want to call it, I will be the classiest, most elegant gypsy hobo New York City has ever seen (and I imagine New York is not light on gypsy hobos).
Packing light is kind of a “thing” with me. It all started with my mom—everything in life starts with your mom. She was the Empress of Packing Light. I am the Queen. Only Girl is the Heir Apparent. Only Girl spent 6 weeks in France with one big purse and one small carry on. She always looked fantastic and she never got a backache from lugging her luggage around. Only Girl is coming with me to New York and she is also bringing everything she’ll need (and that includes a flat iron) in her purse.
This is what my one, darling, stylish purse will hold: all my make-up, my skin care products (many), my dental hygiene products, hair products, undergarments, night gown, shirt, scarf, sunglasses, wallet, reading glasses, map, notebook, cell phone, handkerchief, pain reliever, protein bars, jewelry . . . and? I think that’s it.
Notice how I cleverly listed everything I need to pack and turned it into a blog? I’m sneaky that way.
What would you pack if you were going to New York for 2 days?
