Winner of Travelling Light

Thanks to all who shared your stories of packing and luggage catastrophes, but for sheer laugh out loud factor (and maybe because this is the kind of thing I would have done at the same age), the winner of the competition is  Cybill, and here is her entry:

When I was a 13 year old girl, going off on my first flight alone I thought it important to pack ‘grown-up’ clothes. I wasn’t a child any-more you know. So I packed a pair of my sisters high heels and changed into them on the plane (so my mum wouldn’t find out, or my sister for that matter). Anyhoo, I was one of the first to disembark and I got to the top of the plane stairs teetering in my heels. Of course I lost my footing and cartwheeled down the stairs. The hostess was laughing so hard she couldn’t even help me up. I lay like a starfish on the tarmac looking VERY grown up in my high-heels.

  1. Hi Imogen – I just wanted you to know I bought the e-book and think it is the best book on the subject I have seen.
    I am sure I will recoup the cash I paid by not buying stuff I don’t really need and working with what I already I have.
    I am away to Spain for two weeks in August and will be applying your rules.
    I hope you have contacted all the women’s magazines. As a former feature writer we used to cover the subject in some form every year.

  2. Imogen, thank-you so much for the wonderful book, I am so happy that I won!!

  3. La Belette Rouge says:

    Your book is gorgeous( not that one should judge a book by its cover—but when it is written by a gorgeous and smart Image consultant I do think the cover matters).

    I am going to try and pack VERY light for our trip to Hawaii. 3 bathing suits; 3 sun dresses; tees; tunic tops; cardigan; 2 skirts and 2 linen pants. I feel like following your guidance I will make much better packing choices.

  5. Imogen Lamport says:

    Jane – thanks so much for buying a copy! If you know of any contacts at the womens mags who would be interested please let me know and I can forward a copy!

    Cybill – enjoy – at least fall has come to some good!

    La Belette – thanks I hope the content is as good as the cover.

    Maria – reading that made me laugh too!

  6. Imogen – I am more than happy for you to use my comments.

  7. I am getting this book! Congrats Dear. I look forward to finally looking like the woman I always want to be when I travel.
