Bag Lady

If you follow me on Tumblr or Twitter you know by now that I'm leaving for Vegas tomorrow morning for 5 days! *tap dances all around the room*

Anyway, I thought I'd give you guys a quick post on how I shoved 5 days (AND 4 nights) worth of clothes...(A few items pictured did not make the cut.)

I know you think I'm crazy but I'm not about that checked bag life. I'd rather spend that $50 on something else (like alcohol).

So let's get started! First I stacked a bunch of clothes on top of each other

Then rolled them up like this

I did this twice and I was able to fit:

  • 6 dresses
  • 3 tops
  • 2 blazers
  • 5 pairs of shoes
  • 1 skirt
  • 3 clutches; 1 shoulder bag
  • 1 pair of PJs
  • 1 bathing suit
  • 1 pair of sweatpants
  • 1 bathing suit cover up
  • 2 bras, 1 body shaper
  • 3 tank tops
  • 9 pairs of underwear
  • accessories
  • makeup bag

Little trick my sister suggested: put all of my clutches inside my biggest clutch

I decided to save even more room by stashing all of my accessories inside the smallest clutch.

Okay okay I may have cheated a little! I stored all of my chargers and toiletries inside my big ass purse.
