Guys, if I haven't made it painfully clear yet, I like to think of myself as the Andre Leon Talley of Four Pins. The comparison isn't very accurate because he's super awesome and is BFFs with Anna Wintour, and I'm only kinda awesome and friends with Lawrence Schlossman, but we both get asked to share our packing tips. That's just the way it is. For me, it was New York Fashion Week, which I frequently attend as a former tier struggle blogger. But the G.O.A.T. Talley? Well, his isn't so much a guide as it is just, like, his actual packing list for KIMYE'S WEDDING IN FLORENCE! Other than his invite, our lives are totes similar.
Anyways, his list is off the fucking chain and if I could pack like this I totally would. Click on over so you can get the full breadth of the greatness that is the gawd A.L.T. I'm just gonna hit the highlights here:
1. Dinner caftans
YEAH SON, LONG SHIRTS FOR LIFE. I DID NOT KNOW, HOWEVER, THAT THERE ARE MEAL SPECIFIC CAFTANS. I GUESS THAT'S WHY ANDRE IS THE VOGUE CONTRIBUTOR AND I'M NOT.
2. Not one, but TWO capes
By Chanel and Balenciaga respectively, for those of you keeping score at home.
3. A smoking suit
AYO ANDRE, LET'S SMOKE SOME WEED AND SIP ON SOME ANDRE 'CAUSE IT WILL BE FUNNY TO SEE A DUDE NAMED ANDRE DRINKING A DRINK NAMED ANDRE LOL.
4. And the real highlight: 3—THREE!—rolling hockey bags
I mean, that sounds a little excessive to me, but then I learned that one cape takes up an entire hockey bag, so now it totally makes sense.
Listen, I only have one piece of advice for my guy Andre and it's that you don't have to pack actual DVDs anymore. You can total stream Call the Midwife, dude. PROMISE. In fact, I know somebody with the ill torrent hook up if you need it. Get at me, homie.
