There's a certain art form to packing: being able to bring as few clothes as possible that will cover you for your entire vacation, no matter what happens; choosing clothes that don't easily wrinkle or show stains; finding the right fabric for the temperature of your destination; the list goes on. 

I tend to be an overpacker, so whenever I can get my hands on super versatile clothing that I know I'll use over and over, I try to stock up.

ColoradoGal of TheVacationGals.com blog, wrote a great review for a wrap dress from GGO Clothing, made of 88% organic bamboo and 12% Lycra. Not only is it soft and wrinkle free, but it's "naturally antibacterial and wicks away moisture better than cotton."

Not to mention cute! Usually versatile clothing means utility, and utility doesn't often yell "travel glam." This dress is simple enough that you can dress it up or down, for a variety of occassions, and still look great. Plus the wrap-style works for many different body shapes. 

I agree with ColoradoGal though, in that I would probably layer a light tank or camisole underneath, unless I was going to the beach in the dress. 

Check out her full review here. Also, take a few minutes to poke around the GGO Clothing website, full of casual ready-to-wear items for women (and men!).

Also referred to as the Paddington Bazaar, this weekly market features over 200 stalls of high quality, Australian-made goods. Arguably the best in the city, this vibrant churchyard market is a great way to kick off your Saturday in Sydney.

In the courtyard of the market you’ll find the emerging designers section where you can find distinctly New Age and high fashion clothing items. All around the market are stalls with unique clothing and accessories, ranging from avant-garde to vintage.

Within the market you can also find fresh flowers, baked goods, and other local, hand-made artisan goods and crafts. This is a top-notch market where most of the wares are of high quality as the different vendors are in friendly competition with one another.
