Along similar lines, Hallie sent a request for: "an end of summer dress that can travel well, aka, no ironing, go from day out-n-about in the heat of Austin, to night in rock club, with a flip from flats to heels, and is age appropriate for a 5' 0" petite and busty 34 year old."
Lastly, Amy wrote in, saying, "I have been searching for a cute travel purse for my upcoming trip to Italy. I saw your absolutely adorable Marshall Travel Wallet in today's issue, but sadly to say it is well out of my "Saving for Italy" budget. Do you have any suggestions for either a travel purse or wallet that is both stylish and functional and ideally around the $100 mark?"
Lucky, lucky ladies, going on fab vacations! Cody and Hallie, here are a few dresses - when shopping for travel-friendly items, look for knit fabrics or anything that's got a casual, wrinkled style (#3 or anything linen). Amy, these wallets all have great interior pockets for boarding passes, passports, money, cards, etc. Have fun on your adventures, ladies!
