    My new Benah for Karen Walker tote bag: Holds everything I need without being too travel-ly.

  • What’s your go-to travel uniform?

    Cashmere Sweater: Cashmere’s the way to go on planes, I always think.

  • Can’t travel without?

  • Oddest thing I’ve ever packed?

    Snow White Costume: Last week coming back from Hong Kong I was carrying a Snow White costume (child-size) with a large hooped skirt. That was a real drag, but it was worth it when my daughter saw it.

  • Favorite thing to nab from the hotel room?

    I’ve never stolen anything from a hotel.
