I just recently returned from a wonderful trip to Amsterdam and Paris. Being a small shop owner I truly appreciated all the beautiful, independent boutiques in both cities. Their decor was gorgeous and their staff was above pleasant and helpful. In this age of online shopping there is something so special about going into a lovely shop and being greeted by a welcome smile and being able to physically touch and feel your way thru the store. Don’t be surprised if you see some Parisian flair at The Dotted i.
I am so fortunate to be heading to Amsterdam and Paris with girlfriends to celebrate one of my dearest friends Birthday. But this packing thing is a daunting task for me……..
First, I am not a good packer, I am an overpacker. I have a hard time deciding what to bring so I opt to bring everything. My goal for this trip is to really try and edit my outfits and not bring my entire closet.
I’ve been searching all different sites for what to pack for a Parisian trip and there is alot out there. The bottom line …BLACK is the answer, which I must admit makes it a bit easier. The other must is a trench coat and of course a scarf. Full disclosure I tried on every trench coat at the Burberry outlet finally settling on the classic double breasted. The next stumbling block was the suitcase. My girlfriend and I debated and researched this ad nauseum – there are so many choices ; hard cover, soft cover, weight, size, color. I decided on the Brics Bellagio in an olive, hard cover. We shall see how it works. I also picked up a MZ Wallace tote on the advice of my girlfriend and so glad I got it. Very light but roomy with lots of inside organization pockets.
Leave us a comment on your packing ideas and tips. Bon Voyage!!!

I don’t know if you are like me but Fall always hits me like a ton of bricks. Even though I try to start getting ready in August it never seems to be enough. There always seems as if there is so much to do and plan for and never enough time to get it done. Getting my desk organized is one of the most helpful ways I find to stay on top of sports schedules, back to school nights, parents weekends and planning for the looming but oh so close holidays
(yes I said it but as a retailer they are here already )
Here are some of my favorite desk accessories from some of our favorite vendors-
