If you're looking for a way to get people to not sit next to you on the subway, try carrying a large jug inside of a bag which is marked with the Haz-Mat symbol, and the words "24 Hour Urine Collection". Trust me, it works.
I'm a thirty-something-or-other, soon-to-be-single, fashion follower headed to the City of Light to Eat, Pray, Shop.
Follow along and see what I'm wearing. I figure if I'm going to be in Paris, I've got to "Bring It" (even if I am limited to only one carry-on bag).
