I love your travel packing posts. The way you lay out each outfit helps me follow your thinking as you solve the day's three-dimensional, in-motion puzzle. It'd be even more fun if you did carry-on only. I mean, except for the part where you'd wear, out of necessity, the rubber boots on travel days!

I have just discovered your blog (via a link from another much-admired blogger) and have spent the day reading every word you have written here. What a treasure trove of stylish good sense wardrobe planning! I have used your Venice packing list as the basis as my own packing list for a trip to UK and Paris in February/March next year. Thank you so much for solving my packing dilemma, please know that thebtime you have spent sharing your skill is much appreciated!

I wish I was going too – this is a wardrobe from a trip back in 2004! My next trip is later this month to Washington DC; you all will of course get to see the suitcase plan when it's finalized.thanks so much for being here,Vivienne

when do we get to see the "sources" for everything in this bag? I know it's all a bit out of date, but I'd be very keen to know where you found some of those lovely dark teal-ish items.

All of the cashmere turtlenecks are from L.L.Bean. Really. They have awesome cashmere. My teal coat was a super-vintage Eileen Fisher, which is waaaay too big for me now (sigh, but a happy sigh, sort of). I had a scarf from Echo, and a paisley Etro. Teal is out there almost every year, if you have the endurance to find it!thanks for asking,Vivienne

love the outfits; love your blog! I'd love to know the "source" for the longer, tweedy/heather-looking coat. thanks!!

My coat was Eileen Fisher – I have lost the reference for this coat, but I think it was vintage. Anybody else recognize it?
