“…I’m leaving todayyyyyyy!” (shuddup, Frank!)

Only I’m going to old York, not the New. Here’s my packing list, minus the little items.
(Just imagine them inside the hygiene bag, tech bag and handbag).

Posting directly from Polyvore

My last Polyvore posting was done with a heavily edited image to which I added text in an image editing program before posting it. That was before I realised there is a text widget on Pv, but since it seems to be made with small amounts of text in mind I will probably still use the original method when I want to add so much text.
I love being able to make these visual lists and I’m getting better at it. Here is a packing list for a long weekend trip to Berlin I’m making around the middle of next month. This is all going in carry-on, in addition to the contents of the bag in the previous Pv post (minus the back-up clothes). Mind you, I’m not shopping for this stuff before I go or even during the trip, but rather I chose products that come close to looking like the stuff I’m taking. The cape is the exception – I actually do own one and love it (except when it is windy outside and it starts acting like a parachute).

Testing Polyvore

Recently I clicked on one of the fashion collages I had been seeing on Pinterest, which led me to Polyvore. Polyvore (love that name) enables you to make collages from images from their database or import your own items. Clicking on items in the collages or sets will give you information about them and links to shop for them.

It’s supposed to be all about fashion and design (and selling them), but I figured I could use it for my own purposes. Here, for example, is a visual packing list I made for carry-on luggage. I made it into an image and added the text using Pixlr. The design is a bit clunky, but I have never pretended to be a graphic designer.

Click on the image to see it full size. If you’re interested in any of the items as products, click here to be taken to the set on Polyvore, where you can click on individual items for information.
