Longchamp Balzane Roots Collection: Get In Touch with Your Roots

I can safely say I have never been in love with a Longchamp bag before. Of course, we all have at least one foldup Le Pliage for travel (and the shopping sprees that come with your trip), but we don’t carry it because we love it. It’s all function and no fun.

Lipault Paris Foldable 22" Wheeled Carry On Bag

Lipault Paris Foldable 22″ Wheeled Carry On Bag: Packing Lust

For those of us with storage limitations (and that would be everyone – I live in the suburbs, and my closet is still bursting!), Lipault Paris’ foldable carry on is perfection in a bag. The lightweight luggage folds up flat, making it easy to store under a bed or tuck away at the edge of a closet. I have duffels that flatten, but you really want a structured carry on to protect your belongings.

Nina Ricci Ballet Bag

Nina Ricci Ballet Bag: Raising the Barre

My childhood dream of being a ballerina was never fulfilled for a couple of reasons: A) I never possessed the patience to actually attend lessons, and B) I only wanted to be a ballerina because I liked the tutus. Fair enough. While arabesques and pliés were not meant for me, thanks to Nina Ricci, I may still become a ballerina yet!

Top Travel Sets: Keep Calm and Carry-On

After having my Louis Vuitton luggage stolen and lost several times over, I’ve learned to check the most nondescript luggage when I travel. How to distinguish from other, equally subtle suitcases on the belt? I tie on bright-colored (and slightly tacky) ribbons. Trust me, no one wants to grab a suitcase covered in Christmas tinsel.

Micro Luggage: Travel Snob

With all of the traveling I’ll be doing this summer, nothing would be better for my feet, busy schedule, and general sanity than a scooter suitcase. To think there was once a time when I thought adding wheels onto luggage was the greatest invention ever! Micro takes it up a notch by combining their scooter with Samsonite’s quality hard-shell case.

Flight 001 Travel Essentials: Pack Mentality

I just landed in Florence, so my mind is focused on all things travel! It’s hard to pare down your suitcase (I have three with me and had a nightmare the night before flying that Kelly and Rich left me on the curb with it all ‘cuz it wouldn’t fit in our car!) – I’d rather just make sure everything’s organized. That’s where Flight 001 comes in…

Globe-Trotter 26” Cruise Centenary Special Ed Suitcase: Good News Travels Fast

With a suitcase like this, the fantasy of the ultimate in glamorous traveling is realized. The fantasy, of course, also includes a full-time porter – because in true old-world form, this trunk doesn’t come with wheels. All for the sake of Industrial Revolution-era romance! (Nineteenth-century snob Anna Karenina would be all over this.) No shock […]
