To where would you most like to stowaway?

At the moment- my bed. But, I have been dreaming of a weeklong visit to a serious detox spa to reset my health and mind.

Who would you take with you?

I would take my sister or myself; it is not the kind of trip my husband would go on.

One essential piece of kit you cannot travel without, and why?

I always pack my sneakers and exercise clothes first- I need to move my body everyday.

What is your favourite Stow piece, and why?

I love the Elizabeth Leather Jewelry Storage Gift Set, it’s highly organized, thoughtfully designed, and very Instagram friendly.

What would you keep in your Stow secret envelope?

My Helen Ficalora necklace with all my children’s initials and a peace sign for me.

Luxury or practicality – which one are you?

Practical to a fault.

Best piece of travel attire to stay stylish when on the move?

Atonamie, black pencil pants- they can be worn for sport or black tie. They are thin, great for warm weather, will wash in sink, and dry overnight.

How do you stay stylish when travelling?

I wear scarves and jewelry. My clothes are always basic and a little roomy when traveling.

Best piece of fashion advice you’ve received?

Find a great tailor. I’m 50 so there is little off the rack for me.

Who is your travel hero/heroine and why?

My husband- he is never tired or jetlagged. He insists we walk to our destinations; we often clock 25,000 steps on a trip.

Which luxury item can you not travel without?

My Cartier Sport Watch- it’s light and works with any outfit. It’s my go to signature for sure.
