So let see what kind of accessories you will have to pack....
- hair accessories
A lot of things to think about and I will not speak about undergarments :-)
So one more time, I will not plan my accessories the same way if I travel by plane.... for example, I don't take hats with me when I travel by plane, too fragile!
First shoes, try to avoid heels as much as possible they will stay unworn in your luggages! I don't bring fancy shoes with me but 2 or 3 pairs of basic sandals or wedges that will be comfy and will match all outfits!
When I choose clothes, I try to minimized colors, so I can use same belt, purse or shoes for several outfits. That's a good tip if you don't want to end with 10 suitcases!!!
I usually don't pack more than 2 or 3 purses. I use them as jewelery boxes to protect my jewels!
I don't wear a lot of necklaces when weather is hot so I pack bracelets and earrings.
I choose one set for each outfit I planned, or some can even go with several ones!
Use kleenex or coton to protect them because you will easy damaged fragile ones if you put them in a box without protection! I was sad to have damaged some vintage Coro earrings several years ago.
I try to pack just a few hats and choose the more easy to carry like bérets for example. Hats take a lot of place if you want to keep them safe....
That's why I also pack with me some nice hair accessories that are easy to pack like snoods and flowers.... I often pack silk flowers in one of the purse I have in my luggages!
I usually pack just one vintage umbrella that will match everything!
Vintage umbrellas are not easy because they cannot be put in a purse, they are quite long. But most of the time you can separe it in 2 parts, you have just to unscrew the handdle! I roll them in several sturdy plastic bags with tape because I don't want them to make holes in my dresses!!!
For glasses, I usually pack 2 sun ones and one with prescription lenses.
I choose one pair of sunglasses to match 50's style and one that can match a more 40's style.
I forgot to speak about that... it's more easy to match everything if you choose only one era... but I wear 40's and 50's clothes, so it's a big problem when it comes to accessories, you must choose stuff that match both decades!
Preparing a travel is really hard for me because I cannot bring with me as much as I want to...
For example, I would have prefered a gold purse with this outfit and a large hat....
But you have to make concessions...you cannot bring all your wardrobe!!!
It's even harder for me that always want to match things perfectly. Moreover, I don't like to build an outfit early, I usually only pick dress and each accessories while looking at my dressing room just in the morning...
