I've always been a horrible packer; I tend to bring as much stuff as possible, clothes, accessories, shoes and make up and then figure out outfits during the trip. This has not been terribly successful for me thus far and so I decided this time to come up with a different strategy.
I am a strong believer in making your clothes work for you (literally) and so I decided to geek out when it came to packing for my trip to the Cannes Film Festival. Because I like to use personal style to stimulate imagination and be memorable, I decided to go with a general theme. I wanted to do a lot of black and white because our movie is in black and white and use punches of colours in the accessories. I also wanted to be consistant pattern wise and went for breton stripes and polka dots throughout and then completed with neutrals with great texture. Because my clothes won't be my main focus while I'm at the festival but yet it will still play a role in my PR strategy, I remixed twice as many outfits as days I'll be there (12 days, 24 outfits) with the fewest items I could, took a picture of each outfit and made an outfit chart divided in day and night, warm and cold weather looks. See, I told you I geeked out! That's what I did while you were watching tv last night...
This is either the best idea ever or I'm officially overly organized... We'll have to see! Do you have a packing strategy?
... only 3 days to go ... !!!
