The January I was 12 years old, I traveled with a friend and her family to spend a week in Cabo San Lucas. You would think the vacation itself would have been the pinnacle of excitement, but it wasn’t. It was the packing. It’s true. I spend the week prior to any trip organizing, making lists, prepping my suitcase and making sure I have all of the necessary accouterments for smart travel. When I was 12, my mom gifted me a fabulously soft, lined jewelry organizer. I lovingly wrapped my bangles, earrings, watches, necklaces in this fantastic contraption and immediately felt like a world traveler. (I never wore any of the jewelry on my vacation, but that is another story altogether.)
The mother and daughter team, Elaine and Kathryn Pybus, behind Vic & Albie have created a line of gorgeously crafted jewelry organizers that can carry you through your travels (from far and away lands to the weekend stay-cation.) Marrying form and function with utter sophistication, the Pybus ladies understand that style is a reflection of our best selves and we don’t have to sacrifice beauty in order to be practical. Plus, imagine the space you would save using these to store jewelry at home. (I’ve got this Herringbone Maple Jewelry Roll wish-listed for this exact reason.) Nothing says “The Good Life” quite like beautiful organization.
