My Paris Packing List : Lotta flat, Matt and Nat Plush Ritual and Fun Spring Dresses from Modcloth
leave for Paris is less than one month! Gosh times flies. This trip has been on the back burner for a couple of years now, and I finally get to go. I have been trying to decide how to pack. At first we were supposed to go during Easter, which would have been a much cooler trip than the mid May trip for which we are now scheduled. I do not know how to pack because I am trying to make sure I have enough room to bring back some goodies. There are a couple of things though, that I believe are necessary: a pair of cool flat shoes, spring dresses, and a cross body bag with a long strap.
I told you about the new Leifsdottir line of shoes that debuted two months ago. The four pairs I mentioned are all on my wish list which includes, the Lotta Flat, the Brazilian made buttery ballet flat with a flirty ankle strap. The Lotta Flat contains a zipper in the back of the shoe. The Lotta Flats are $248.00 at Leifsdottir.
There is one spring dress in particular that I think is so Parisian. The All Along the Lines Dress is a strapless mini, multi-tiered cream dress with blue, red and pink stripes. It contains a sash and a cut fold over seam that folds down against the bodice. It is 100% viscose with a polyester lining. If only the Lotta Flat came in red…The All Along the Lines Dress is $47.99 at Modcloth.
The cross body bag of which I am in search needs to have depth and width so I can stash some souvenirs while I am tramping through St. Germain-des-Pres. The bag should be something kind of sexy and not too practical, but nothing to big and audacious that might signal tourist. I found the Matt and Nat Plush Ritual. It is marketed to carry personal laptops, so you can imagine how deep and wide it is. The bag is 16 inches wide, 3 inches deep, and 12 inches high with an adjustable cross-body strap that is 18.5 inches long. The bag has a recycled interior lining and is constructed from vegan faux leather. The Matt and Nat Plush Ritual is now on sale for $180.00 at Zappos.
