Packing for Fashion Week

I am no longer a rookie.  This month will be the second year I will be traveling to Toronto Fashion Week and I am pumped to say the least. But to tell you the truth, last year I really didn’t know what I was getting into and was totally unprepared! So, this year I am getting a head start and packing smart with my new Atlantic Luggage.

First off, packing light isn’t an option. So I will be bringing both my Atlantic 29″ Expandable Spinner and Carry On Luggage.  With there no fuss Velcro connectors (you can check out how they easily connect here), I can easily manage both pieces while I navigate the airport with a coffee in hand plus I can charge my phone anywhere with the Carry On’s External USB port (after all those Instagrams: @rcitystyle and Snapchats: amandareid888)  I also will be keeping it organized and planning my outfits for both the shows and events I will be heading to using my Austin House Packing Cubes (serious time and space savers) Lastly when it comes to beauty, I don’t shy on taking extra precautions.  Not only do I pack my makeup and toiletries in secure pouches but I keep them in a separate compartment because I am little protective of my clothes.

So what will I be packing? It isn’t a complete list yet, I am hopping to pick up a few things in the next week to take on my trip but here are the essentials I know I wont be leaving without!


A Crossbody– Holds all my essentials without weighing me down

A DSLR Camera– To snap all the great fashions and some behind the scenes action

Blanket Scarf– The tent’s temperature are either super hot or cool. A blanket scarf does double duty of style and warmth.

A Minimal Watch

Stacking Rings– Delicately looks pulled together

Nude Lip Stick– Simple and won’t bleed after a long day


I made the mistake of only packing pumps last year and my feet were aching by the end of day one so I will be packing a variety of options with a lot less height.

Lace up Flats

Short Heel Black Ankle Booties

Over the Knee Boots


Black Pumps


Leather pencil Skirt

Lace up Long Sleeve Tee

White Tee

Black High Waisted Skinny Jeans

Grey Ribbed Turtle Neck

A Pastel Dress

Cream Long Sleeve Crop Top

Destroyed Boyfriend Jean

Wrap Coat

Leather Jacket
