The Art of Packing / by Savannah Boyd

Ok, ladies. Admit it! How many of you have made lists until you were blue in the face, stressed until you added extra gray hairs and wrinkles, then scrambled around right up until the last second to get packed for a trip, only to arrive at your destination and STILL not have everything you need?! We have all been there! This is why Hearts of Style offers a full packing service for our clients. We will take care of every detail of each outfit, completing a head-to-toe look from the shoes to the earrings to the purse to the belt for every day, night, or event of your trip. When we leave, you will have a zipped suitcase complete with packing cubes for each outfit, printed pictures to remind you of how to style them, and NONE of the hassle, worry, and stress that is typically associated with getting organized and mobilized to travel. This blog post details Hearts of Style’s process on a full A to Z packing job!

You will never want to go back to packing for yourself ever again!!!

Hearts of Style comes to your home to help you select looks for each day, evening, or event that you have planned for your trip.

We try on the looks to make sure they are perfect and take pictures for future reference.

Then we restyle the looks on a white board to capture printable photographs for the client to pack inside their packing cubes.

Here are the looks that we styled for this client’s Las Vegas trip:

  EXTRA OUTFIT : Just because you never know!

EXTRA OUTFIT: Just because you never know!

Once a look has been finalized and photographed, Hearts of Style gathers each item that you will need for that look, places those items into an individual packing cube with the corresponding photograph, puts the packing cube into the suitcase, and that’s all there is to it! The process is repeated until the suitcase is packed and ready to go.

(Note: This client owns the packing cubes, suitcase, and jewelry case you see pictured here, and they will all be linked below.)
