    1. Camper Pelotas. I only know this because there were other posts about them, including 12-1-11, and I liked them also.

    2. Thank you! I am seeing Janice goes for fab accessories top to bottom! Would you love to 'see' her in more detail - or maybe I have missed those posts... is she short/tall, fair/dark... Only because I am intrigued by the person round this stylish mind...

    3. I'm a mystery! I'm short, bombshell, curly hair, glasses, pudgy 50-year old baby face... Come to Chicago - we'll have breakfast/lunch/tea!

  4. I followed your packing advice for Ireland and had only one shirt and one sweater not worn. Not bad for a rookie! And the sweater was simply too heavy for the mild weather. My husband commented on how well I did. Believe me, this is a far cry from my usual packing disaster. I hope that you have a lovely time in France. We were blown away by Ireland. Lots of affordable property, Janice. And I wore the same cross-strap walking flats on my trip- very comfortable.

    1. Hi, maybe I missed the information at some point...but who makes those cute cross-strap walking flats, please? Thank you.

  5. I am not too proud to admit that I have accessory envie. The scarves are beautiful and they make every outfit look just right.

  6. Thank you dear Janice! I'm packing for 10 days in Venice and this is terrific inspiration. I hope your trip was wonderful!

  7. If you would be so kind as so share the brand of the ballet flats? They look like they have support - and that is sometimes so very hard to find...

    1. Thierry Rabotin. Blindingly expensive, but worth every penny. I can walk for HOURS in his shoes without problems!

  8. Wonderful scarves and comfy Rabotin shoes. Perfectly compact and chic pack. The accessories do it all. Brilliant!

  9. I've still got a long way to go...love your packing, might even print out these pages, so that I have your advice handy, when I travel next time ;-) Have a safe journey and enjoy France! :-)

    1. 20 inch hardside Tumi bag, plus a pretty hefty nylon duffle as my "handbag". Just got back in the last half hour, and belovedest and I just agreed that we probably could have packed 20% less than we did...

  11. Ingenious and appealing! I wonder if part of the holiday is knowing just what you're going to wear each day (weather permitting) instead of having to decide every morning ... Or does a Project 333 girl live like this at home too?!

    1. Definitely part of the holiday not having to think too much about what I'm going to wear. Life is too interesting to obsess about clothing constantly - when I'm comfortable, appropriate, clean, and warm/cool enough, I forget about what I'm wearing and pay attention to important things.

  12. I really love this set of scarves....especially Tues & Wed...
    Are these all your scarves?
    I was concerned about the folds/creases in them...if things are folded in the same place (same way) the fold/creases can deteriorate faster than the rest of the fabric..
    Things can be rolled on tubes (ladies used to do this with linens)to keep them from getting permanent creases.
    Other options are to fold them in different places....instead of folding in half, fold into thirds each way...
    I wish I had even a couple of these beautiful scarves!! and a reason to have to put together a travel wardrobe!
    The outfit setups are wonderful and so are the accessories!
    hugs

    1. These scarves are indeed all mine - I buy scarves as much as I buy clothes. Bear in mind that there are LOTS of beautiful scarves in the world that aren't expensive; you just have to keep your eyes open!

  13. OOps I should have said my favs were Monday, Tuesday scarves....

  14. Can you PLEASE tell me if there is a post anywhere that shows HOW you wear your scarves? I love the way they look in your "collections" but I never really know how to wear a scarf. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Gorgeous outfits! Could you post the brand for the cross strap shoes? Thank you!

  16. Oh how I love your scarves. Is the Parures accented with orange or red? I think I may get one on my next trip. It's hard for me to spend so much on a single item--even after I've saved the money. Isn't that awful?

    Can't believe you're back already.

  17. I guess someone had to do it- what brand are the other black shoes (not the ballet flats)? I have orthotics and my feet always hurt so I buy a million shoes always in search of what might work (at long last). Usually when we tour a city (comme Paris....or just recently San Francisco) we can walk 6 or miles miles a day easily. Any help out there? Yes. Style counts.

    1. The Belgian-style loafers I wear to fly are from Stuart Weitzman, the athletic shoes are Campers (NO support, which I don't need, but buckets of space for orthotics), and both of the flats are from Thierry Rabotin. I'm super picky about shoes too - have to be if you're going to walk as much as one does on vacation!

  18. Ecco shoes are my go-to for comfort - just offering them up as a somewhat less expensive alternative to the Rabotins Wearing them is like floating on air.
