As I wrote about in a previous post, a female event planner’s secret weapon is dresses with pockets. Your cell phone, lipstick, and any other small necessary items that you need to carry with you can be hidden cleverly without having to worry about toting around a purse, clutch, fanny pack, tool belt, etc.
A protip we encourage for our team at Reinventing Events is to wear a belt when producing an event. I’m on a headset 99.9% of the time during an event. A dress with pockets is of no use if you have no where to clip your radio. Trust me, I’ve tried.
A typical radio weighs approximately two pounds. It doesn’t work adhered to your pocket as you’ll soon become lopsided. Hanging your radio to your lanyard, assuming you are wearing one at a conference, is not a comfortable alternative either. Your neck becomes sore and stiff by the end of the day. Carrying it around ties up one of your hands which you need! Let’s face it, you need a belt.
A company recently launched called Pocketify which is a marketplace for all of your pocket dress needs. They are still in the beginning stages and haven’t fully launched, but you can sign up to be the first to beta test the site. In the meantime, ShopStyle by POPSUGAR allows you to search for dresses with pockets and belt.
