  1. That suitcase is so fabulously girly, glam and pretty!!! It appeals to my inner five year old as much as it does my 30 year fashionista self today. 🙂

    Best of luck with your packing, dear gal. Though not the same thing entirely, on three (objectively actually, more like four) occasions I’ve needed to pack all the worldly goods I was keeping into just one or two suitcases and perhaps a carry on (such as moving to and from Ireland years ago), so I can truly relate to the importance of every last gram you possibly avail of from your choice of luggage (and most definitely what you put into it).

  2. This is exactly what I’ve been looking for! Even though I’ve been on many a holiday including Spain, Florida and Africa (and the uk trips but considering I live here it is just trips) I still find myself pondering over what to pack and how I can make good outfits over what I take. I’m getting better and more creative as time goes on but guidance is always welcome. I can’t wait for part two! -xx-

  3. I want that suitcase. I have had mine for almost ten years. I know it is time to retire it. Yet that suitcase has been to 18 countries with me. And many a time I have cursed it’s existence.
