Today I was told to pack a suitcase.  No, not like the, “Get out of my house and get to steppin’ you, crazy bitch!” kind of suitcase.  More of the romantic surprise getaway and I’m not telling you wheeeeere suitcase.  See, tomorrow is my beloved and my anniversary.  I know.  I found myself a true Romeo (no, seriously, he’s a dream come true).  I have no idea where we’re headed, but wait til he gets a load of his gift.  (That’s what you get for marrying a writer, honey).  Anyway, I’m not that great at packing to begin with, so throwing me a curveball like this makes stuffing my suitcase that much more difficult.

Since I know you ladies are just as lovely, I don’t doubt that something like this will also happen to you.  So, to help you out, I’ve figured out how to pack for a destination unknown.  The key is versatility.  Pack things that can be both dressed up and dressed down.  Be sure to tuck a pair of flats (or comfortable shoes) along with some sexy stilettos in your bag.  To jazz up your daytime attire, be sure to bring your bling.  Accessories are crucial in taking any outfit from casual to cosmopolitan.
