They say it takes 10,000 hours to become a master at something. We're not sure Cleo Davis Urman, co-founder and director of creative relations at Tinker Tailor has put that much time into sorting through clothing and suitcases. But, take our word for it: The girl knows how to look good on a plane, train, in a car, and in every situation in between takeoff at JFK and making her way home again. We've spotted Urman dressed to the nines everywhere from NYC to Paris to Iceland, so we knew she'd be our girl for expert packing tips for a long weekend right here in New York.
