EXTREME VERSATILITY

I am off on a short trip again, a last hurrah for the summer.  My packing rule - versatility.

What I really would like is Donna Karan's Infinity Dress, introduced many years ago.  Or something from Rick Owens.  But that is for someone whose budget differs largely from mine.

Donna Karan's Infinity Dress, worn so many ways

So my version is the Lilla P "Origami Wrap" (though there are many other designers with their own version).  It goes from cardigan, to draped jacket, to halter top, to long-sleeved T, ...  The list is as endless as your origami skills.  See the demo video from Lilla P's website:





Here are just a few of my favorite looks from this piece:

Twisted jacket


Rear view, tied in the back like a bustle

Worn as a halter top
Can be tied front or back

One piece, multiple uses. As handy for travel as a Swiss Army knife.  And it fits, rolled up, inside your purse.
