Packing with Anna Dello Russo


I'm going to keep in mind to pack my jacket like that (also seen at Guerreisms), when I make the FINAL
decision which luggage I'm going to bring--which is always my little war between form and function.
Watch the video in better quality here.

  1. I remember seeing this video a while back and thinking she had some great packing techniques. Also totally agree about packing sometimes bring a struggle between form and function

  2. heehee - I loved this video - she's so fab! I struggle on deciding how much luggage to take (or rather what I need to leave behind)

  3. Packing?? Where are you going?? I'm seeing a lot of travel related posts.. will email you privately, Pretty Pret.

    Came to than you for your comments: each are so intelligent, witty, and spot on. What you said about Kate Moss's longevity.. so agree. And it's funny, cause when she did start talking, it instantly de-mystified her!

    And I love this packing video: I think this is what first drew me in to ADR's wit and joy of life and as you said so well, humility. Wonderful qualities to have in spades.

    Safe travels wherever you're headed! xoxo

  4. i would LOVE to see anna dello russo in those abercrombie pant things. plus she does have some good tips - i had always assumed she just had outfits waiting for her on the ground!

  5. I fold my jackets like that as well, and it took me a while to figure out how to do it if I'm travelling with a backpack, haha. Using a backpack frankly means I give up the form bit entirely, I guess. But then if ADR wears Abercrombie sweatpants on the plane, no one's perfect I guess.

    Where are you headed?

  8. Too much fun, that video!

    I've never thought of a coat like a dress. Perhaps I should! It would make wearing "dresses" more of a thing for me in the fall/winter when I tend to shy away of anything that makes my legs cold. :)

  9. She should give Rachel Zoe some tips! Apparently Zoe brought about 30 pieces of luggage with her to Paris.

  10. Ah! I always think of coat as dresses too, love 'em! Loved her way of folding it, must try that next time...

    Thanks for sharing!

  11. I saw this a wee bit ago and for some reason think back to it. I think if there were more videos of beautifully obsessed dressers like her, men too, packing their suitcases, people would love that.

  12. Seriously she is amazing, I can't get enough of her. Surprised to see she only bring 2 suitcases!

  14. I wish I'd watched this before I went to Milan and Paris. I had to spend two hours after arriving in each city ironing my clothes!

  15. I see that Anna packs all her shoes in their shoe bags. I've been wondering lately if it's worth getting shoe bags for all my shoes rather than those clear boxes. It would certainly make luggage packing much simpler.
