Packing with Heys & A Marble-ous Giveaway

Okay ladies. Let’s talk packing. I don’t know about the rest of you, but Maya and I, we don’t pack light. Even before I was a fashion blogger, leaving for a weekend meant packing for at least two weeks. Now…well, consider the fact that I might have to shoot three, four, five looks while on a trip – and that doesn’t include the outfits I’ll wear just out and about – and we are talking massive amounts of STUFF. Cause it isn’t just clothes, right? There are shoes, bags, makeup, hair tools…things get out of control reallllly fast. Up until now packing has meant bringing multiple suitcases (and often paying for them since luggage is so rarely free anymore) – but with the 30″ case from Heys, there is no more need for multi-case packing. Meet your new best friend, the marble Bianco.

Heys KILLED it with their Bianco line. If you haven’t noticed (and how have you not?!) marble is EVERYTHING right now. Instagram is covered in marble tables, marble phone cases…and now, Heys has killed the game with their white marble luggage. Not only are their pieces gorgeous but they’re unique – the chances of this bad boy getting lost in the airport are slim to none. Seriously – for the fashionista, this is THE luggage. And ahem, Christmas is right around the corner, and their three-piece set is on major sale. As in, was $1,169 and it’s now under $500. Such a good deal. IF however you can’t wait until the holidays, head over to our Instagram @onclosetnine and enter our giveaway to win your own 21″ marble spinner! 
So let’s talk details. At 30″ x 20.5″ x 11.5″, the 30″ Spinner is massive, perfect for heavy duty packing. Just how big is that? Well, large enough that Charlie dog can lay down inside with plenty of room to spare – and he isn’t small. I’ve run across a lot of crummy suitcases – wheels that broke or got stuck, cases that cracked…and I can vouch for these guys that the Heys construction is top-notch. Made of Polycarbonate Composite (which is used in the making of bulletproof glass), it’s surprisingly lightweight, and boasts gel-cushioned top and side handles. It’s also expandable (so you can fit even MORE stuff in there – up to 20% more to be exact), and is fully lined with lots of multiple zippered pockets for everything from your curling wand to your face wash. It also has a built in TSA lock, 360 degree spinner wheels, AND it comes with a 5-year warranty. Yeah, it’s seriously amazing. Charlie thinks so, too

With all of this being said keep reading to get some of our tips on packing – on everything from what to bring to how to create multiple outfits with just a few items of clothing….because not everyone likes to pack heavy like us!


When packing I try to stick to neutrals that can easily be mixed together to create multiple looks with less items. A few fun knitted textured sweaters, a couple pairs of jeans. I love crewneck sweatshirts – they’re adorable, soft, comfy, and they look chic with minimal effort. Roll the cuffs for a more tailored look, or with a white button up for a preppy feel. My two current faves are this suuuuper soft number from La Cle, and thisoversized cream-colored goodness from Good Cmpny. I always pack a pair of sneakers and a pair of booties – I won’t go anywhere without them. Classic colors like black are always a safe bet: they show less dirt while traveling, they go with everything, and I’m simply partial to black. Currently in love with everything platform, and these Marc Fischer platform sneakers are no exception. Super 90’s throwback, super fun.

As far as beauty goes, I keep it simple: mascara, eyeliner, hair stuff. My T3curling wand has three different barrel sizes – and I’ll generally bring them all along. I always bring my Laura Mercier tanner for an instant glow, and my hair extensions (thank you Luxy) for shoots. Hair extensions make a HUGE difference in photos, and they pack down really small; they fit perfectly in the zippered pouches in the Bianco, FYI.

What are your must-haves when you’re packing? Do you guys pack light or heavy? Any trips coming up? We are headed to San Francisco for Thanksgiving with my family, and then Utah for Christmas, with a trip to LA for work in between, so this beauty will be getting lots of use!

    I love Heys Luggage and the marble bianco design. We travel a lot and only Heys can withstand travel woes lol. Not only is their quality top notch so is their design-super sleek and fashionable. TY for the chance! I'd be over the moon to win. It's #Heys30Years for a reason. @teresavalvano previously forgot to include my IG handle :)

  27. I love your packing tips! I like to use packing cubes to help keep things organized. I need to learn how to pack lighter, too, especially with shoes! I haven't found a good go-to travel shoe yet. I'm tiramisu8it on Instagram. I would love to have new spinner luggage to keep the weight off my arm and shoulder. This marble design is gorgeous! Heys has a lot of neat colors and patterns. Thanks so much for the opportunity!
