What if they won't let me see the statue of Liberty because my shoes don't go with my dress!

So, we are almost done with our trip to NYC and just about ready to get home and what does the New York cabbie tell me looking at my luggage " I bet this one is yours ..You women have to pack e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g" . Well, who can argue with a 60 year old cabbie from New York! I wonder what gave it away.Hmm..Was it the pink scarf that I had carelessly tied over my luggage or the fact that mine looked well, how do I put it subtly, ginormous when compared to my better half's luggage that carried all of his three Tees, a shirt, two shorts and one pair of shoes. ONE people, ONE ! Does he NOT know that for every dress you carry , you need to have the perfect shoes. Even if million other bloggers and zillion tourists have specifically asked you to wear comfortable shoes in NY because it requires a lot of walking.

What if someone invites us for dinner at a fancy restaurant and all I have is a 'comfortable' pair of shoes and shorts to wear. And as for my smug husband who obviously was snickering at the cabbie's remarks..Would you want me to spend on shoes in NY , wouldn't it be better if I had packed a dress and a nice pair of sexy heels to go with it? And what if some random magazine reporter is walking around looking for someone for an article on street fashion? Would I want her to pass by me because I was wearing a dress with sneakers..ewww! And oh, I also need to pack all the lip glosses I have, what if I get a tan and that one lip gloss that I did not pack is the one that will go with my 'new' skin tone? What if I have one of those 'fat' days, I would need something NOT sleeveless, so in goes my two other tops with sleeves. What if I have a bad hair day, I definitely need all the hair bands I have! What if I want to go bohemian, don't I need my accessories to finish off the look. What if I wan to do NY chic, I need something in black and a cute sling bag for, don't I? Do you get it, husbands, boyfriends, brothers? Do you get it why we always pack a lot more than needed because we are so good at contingency planning . Don't come crawling to us when you forget your body wash and shampoo at home ;) We ain't sharing!
