Living Well From Your Suitcase

James Bond; international spy. Always jet-setting across the country, tending to mysterious assignations and covert operations, complete with a full supply of weapons, infrared binoculars, microchip voice recorders, and knives that can be concealed in his cufflinks. You may wonder, where does he pack his three-piece suits? Living out of a suitcase can definitely be limiting. Luggage weight limits, different activities, and changeable weather are only part of the things that make packing for a trip challenging. However, if Bond can do it so can you. Here are some ways you can use your Bondlike powers to maximize your luggage capacity.

Mix and Match
One of the greatest challenges to suitcase living is finding a matching outfit. You may find the perfect sweater mercifully at the top of your bag, but the matching pants nowhere to be seen. Pack versatile pieces that you can easily mix and match. That way, not only will a coordinated outfit be easier to find, you will also have a variety of outfits to chose from using the same five or so pieces. A good rule of thumb is: if it can’t be a part of at least two different outfits, leave it out.

Color Scheme
A good way to make sure your clothes match is by sticking to the same general colors. Dark and neutrals tend to be the easiest to work with. Bring a lot of white, black. and gray and add in pops of color, like red or teal, to keep it interesting.

Dress Up or Down
Usually, trips require both dressy and casual outfits, some of which will require some on the spot wardrobe adjustment. Accessories are the answer. Bring outfits that can go either fancy or sporty with the addition or omission of different shoes and pieces of jewelry. Shoes are great outfit transformers. Skinny jeans can instantly go from day to night be swapping your tennis for some super spiked heels.

Layers
Layers are both practical and fashionable, especially when you’re traveling. Weather is hard to anticipate and even seasonal averages are no guarantee. Layers are a crucial component to keeping comfortable while traveling. Make sure to throw in a few scarves, tanks to go under shirts, hoodies, hats and extra socks, that can be easily removed or added.

Packing
Packing is often something learned from mistakes. Begin with shoes and toiletries and be sure to multitask socks and underwear by using them to protect nice shoes and fragile jewelry. Shove the rest of the undies into crevices. Roll up your jeans, camisole, sweaters, and t-shirts for maximum space and minimal wrinkles, and put them in the suitcase next. Blouses and dress shirts should be folded minimally and placed on top. You may want also want to put the pajamas on the top for easy access after a tiring trip. Ironing spray is your best friend; it will eliminate wrinkles without the burden of a space-hogging, heavy iron.

Secrets to Looking More Like a “Fashion Girl” – Vine Vera Reviews

In life, there are those who get fashion, and there are some who just don’t. Vine Vera would like to take a look today at what we call the “Fashion Girl”, the girl who seems to always look stunning and seamlessly masters every fashion trend – no matter what. Want to know how you can get the look? VineVera reviews the types of items you should have in your closet to be the ever intriguing fashionista on your block.

Don’t Play By the Rules
Fashion Girls aren’t afraid to delve into the weird, the unknown, and the uncharted territory in terms of patterns and textures. Don’t be afraid to mix the two to find a combination of colors, patterns, and textures that is all your own. Forget what you’ve heard, and try something new, exciting, and different.

Opt for Simplistic Styles
There are certain staple items every girl should have hanging in her closet, or tucked away in her dresser drawers. Some of those items are tees of solid colors and styles to fit your mood for any particular day, tanks of the same, and black slacks or dress pants. These are a must have in order to get dressed in a hurry and when all else fails. Classic solid colored heels or pumps are always a must have as well.

Rock the Tuck
This style is exceptionally fashion forward – tucking your shirt half in, half out has been embraced by Fashion Girls everywhere for its simplistic ability to change the entire look of an outfit while looking classy, stylish, and chic. Don’t be afraid to tuck different areas of your shirt in, while letting the rest hang out. Tucks don’t just apply to the front of the shirt – or even all of it – any longer. Rock the tuck!

Layer Your Look
Just because you have a little black dress hanging in your closet, doesn’t mean it has to be reserved for a special night out – on the contrary, you can layer this dress with a short sleeved white collared shirt to obtain a casual look out of something you never imagined pairing together. The same goes for other shirts, tanks, and dresses. Layer your look to see which looks you love – you never know what your new favorite combo might be until you experiment and try them out!

Add a Belt
Most Fashion Girls have a large belt collection. Why? Well, belts can add that perfect accessory to any outfit, all without being too over the top. You can add them to anything, from dresses, to skirts, to jeans, shorts, and more. Belts can accentuate a small waist and add more hip definition, and also downplay larger hips by the size of the belts used. They can be bright and colorful, or more subtle depending on the look you are going for. Don’t be afraid to wear a belt and really accent your outfit.

Dressy Jeans
Dressing up your favorite pair of jeans is always a Fashion Girl thing to do. Vine Vera suggests pairing a cute pair of jeans with a dressy blouse, adding a nice necklace, some bracelets, and a cute handbag with a pair of pumps to really play up the jean look, resulting in a dressy casual look. Perfect for a lunch date, work on a Friday, or out shopping with friends.
