baggage claim


Currently at 35,000 feet, on a flight back to LA, my old battered carry-on suitcase in the overhead bin, I'm thinking I need a upgrade, one that would in an ideal world involve a monogram and gorgeous leather trim, like the Globe Trotters, above. But since this suitcase is about as pricey as plane ticket to Timbucktu, I could also fly in style with these options, all owned/recommended by my frequent flying friends: Briggs & Riley (which is expandable), Rimowa (so light!), Samsonite (made with forever durable canvas), Tumi (my husband's go to) and Flight 001 (easy and practical).

I would love some monogramed travel luggage too, in particular this one from Anya Hindmarch. Love it.

Style matters to me, but spinner wheels and lightweight design reign. I recently bought this herringbone pattern Hartmann and its changed the game: http://shop.hartmann.com/travel/carry-ons/hartmann-herringbone-hardside-21%22-spinner/56360XXXX.html

So hard to get style plus light weight combined and still have enough space to STUFF in a lot off clothes. I like Lipault but it lacks that "jet-setter" flair. Tummy seems to check the most items off the list.

All great options, but spinning wheels make a bag for me!

These beautiful bags that we have proposed. Samsonite is the top for me. :)

I travel for work almost every week. I have been doing so for 13 years. It's hard to find a stylish bag that is both durable but light weight. My go to is Tumi. I just got this bag monogrammed. I love the gold trim and zip. http://www.tumi.com/p/international-expandable-4-wheeled-carry-on-022260D2http://www.tumi.com/p/international-expandable-4-wheeled-carry-on-022260D2
