We travel a lot for the store, mostly to Europe. So when our clients ask us for travel tips, we’re happy to share some of what we've picked up over the last two decades.
Pack something sexy.
You should feel your very best when you’re on vacation - it makes you appreciate the money you spent so much more. So make the first thing that goes in your suitcase something hot. Right now, this piece is on holiday with a few of our clients. We’re hoping for pictures.
Bring a jacket with a hood.
Anything can happen to your umbrella: the wind could break its arms, you could leave it on the metro or in your room because the day started off so sunny and lovely. A handy hood will keep your head dry and your hair looking the way you want it. This is one of our favourite travel pieces because it’s as pretty as it is practical.
Other than a wedding ring, you really shouldn’t bring your good jewelry on vacation with you. Too much can happen to it, and losing your most sentimental pieces will ruin your trip and a whole lot more.
Costume jewelry was made for travelling, and we recommend going basic so whatever you bring will work with any outfit you have. Check out some of the better pieces we have in the store these days.
Too many people try to pack everything under the sun into their days. Sure, it’s great to check off all the sites, but nothing about that is relaxing. You know what is, though? Strolling without a plan. You'd be surprised how much you can learn about a new place on a simple walkabout. The smells, the sounds, the random café you stumble upon that makes the best biscotti you’ve ever had in your life. That’s what it’s all about.
Spa it up.
Every major city has a good one, and there’s nothing better than unplugging for a few hours and letting the professionals go to work on you. Facials. Massages. Pore-cleansing and a good soak. Fantastic. You'll leave walking on air, and in the right head space to take in more of what's on offer wherever you are.
And finally…appreciate the differences
This is your opportunity to experience life from a different angle. Instead of comparing it to home, let the familiar go and immerse yourself in your new surroundings. With the right clothes, you should have no problem. And with the right attitude, you’ll have the time of your life.
