Face-Off: Tiny-Packing Travel Sweaters April 30, 2014 4:41 pm by Christine Sarkis If you’re already stuffing your sweater into your purse or day bag, congratulations, you’re way ahead of the trend! The downside, you may already know, is that when you drag the sweater back out of your bag, it’s wrinkled and, if your bag is anything like mine, covered with bits of fluff, loose change, and potentially a lipstick smudge or two. It turns out that there are actually sweaters built to withstand this cycle of need and neglect. I compared three—the Secret Sweater, Chilly Jilly, and Pocket Poppet—side by side and discovered that, while at first glance they may seem interchangeable, each has key features that make it useful for a particular kind of traveler/purse-sweater-stuffer. Common Features All three sweaters share some useful features. They all fold up small and pack easily into an included cloth bag. They’re all wrinkle resistant and, even if you do a careless job of stuffing the sweater into its sack, any wrinkles just disappear after a few minutes of wear the next time you put the sweater on. They’re all quite flattering and adaptable and can be dressed up or down. And they all need to be machine washed on cold and air-dried. What Sets Each Apart Secret Sweater (Photo: Secret Sweater) Consider the Secret Sweater part sweater, part insulation. It’s meant as a light layer on its own or a low-profile layer under a not-quite-warm-enough blazer, jacket, or sweater. The smallest (and smallest-packing) of the bunch, this sweater hits mid-torso and has three-quarter-length sleeves. It’s soft, and it feels most like cotton. The...

The Pocket Poppet For Women on the Go April 22, 2014 By Renee Blodgett I recently discovered a fun wrap, or more like a Cardigan on the Go! from a company called Pocket Poppet.   From boardroom to beach, work to weekend, retro to metro, The Pocket Poppets’ adaptable design is great for women who are looking for comfort, style and a compact easy-to-carry cardigan on the road.  The Pocket Poppet is a fashionable open drape front cardigan that is created to fold into its own attached convenient and protective pouch. Street chic details such as ruched sleeves, jewel tone colors, and a curve-enhancing cut have been created in tandem with a small credit card /ID/lip gloss/cell phone pocket on the inside. Some ‘Cardigan on the Go!’ owners apparently report loving the concealed pouch to stash their small essentials when traveling , such as their boarding pass and ID while waiting in line at security! Cleverly concealed by the Poppets’ graceful pleating and sophisticated silhouette, the lightweight pouch falls in the small of the back for complete discretion while on the body.  When you no longer wish to wear your Pocket Poppet, it easily folds away and “pops” back into its pouch for effortlessly easy storage in a purse, stroller, or suitcase, protecting it from the unwelcome wear and tear, spills, or various other “oops” moments that are so prevalent in modern women’s lives! Created to transition effortlessly from dressy affairs to casual outings, its easily accessible when you need it most — air-conditioned restaurants, airplanes, offices, cruise ships, shopping malls, or theaters. Made from an ultra soft, high quality rayon with a touch of spandex for...
