The picture of the yellow beautify case reminds me when I was little. I dreamed of having a "beauty case", very very 50'ties, seen not only in Hollywood movies but also over at my aunt and godmother that I admired very much. But I grew out of that ... however I love suitcases, bags, chests ... Love this post!

Belle de Ville said...

This post just makes me so excited to be going on VACATION soon!
Excess baggage...I need to be dressed for every possible occasion or event when I go on holiday...because you never know who you will meet...so I travel with plenty of luggage...and I check it, not drag it onto the plane.

Amanda K said...

Great pieces..makes me want to pack my bags and GO.

Maria Confer said...

I love old luggage!! I really want a steamer trunk!

Little Rus said...

I love glamorous baggage editorials, got a few favourite photos in my "fashion file". Adore that Prada ad.

The Lil Bee said...

You find the bestest images, CC. Hands down:)

Polished Sense said...

I love expensive luggage. Just because it is designed so well. Although, if I did invest in it, I would feel bad using it because the airport guys probably wouldn't handle it with care...Love this post, want the yellow piece, badly!

xo,
Jessica

janettaylor said...

Great post, Honey! :-)

XoXo

jayne said...

I was lucky enough to score a 3-piece set of luggage. It's black with white polka dots. I have quite a fascination with luggage pictures, so this is great for me. Thank you.

Carol said...

Your post makes me want to go on a trip now!

Tracy-Girl said...

Amazing... love the travel theme! :)

everybodysaysdont said...

Great photos! I love the first one best. I'd love some nice luggage, but it normally seems a waste of money..I'd have to have alot of money spare to spend alot of money on luggage!! xxx

HiFashion said...

I love bags. That yellow one is perfect!

HELENSKI said...

love the brown croco bag and the other pictures are nice !

Brunch at Saks said...

I love this post! I invested in some LV luggage a few years and it is never let me down! Definitely an area where I do not mind spending a little extra $$. :) XOXO

* Fashion Dreamer * said...

Ahhhh i need to go away on holiday! Would love a 50s style matching hard suitcase set, with the matching vanity case :D

tiltumaria said...

ooh! this post reminded me of shopaholic when she realizes she's never shopped luggage before.. (don't know if you've read the books, but i recommend!) I scored a gorgeous old red leather suitcase at a flea market for 1,5€! I'm in love. Though it's not all that practical since it doesn't have wheels :D Well, I can always use it as decoration ;)
xoxox

trendywomensclothes said...

Amazing pictures! I am so much into luggage suitcases right now, because my vacation is coming soon. So I was extremely happy when I received for my birthday a set of the three pink Diane von Furstenberg suitcases - they are AWESOME! I can't wait to pack and leave :))

Lady Thirty said...

oh, this post was fab!

take care sweetie!

Make Do Style said...

Fab suitcases - sigh more things to covert! Your blog should have a disclaimer x

MISS GLITZY said...

The most beautiful luggage I saw recently was the one Vuitton did for Wes Anderson's movie, The Darjeeling Limited. But you did a great selection!

Kristin said...

What I wouldn't do for some classic LV luggage or that sunny vanity case!

Diego R. Wyatt said...

This is the kind of baggage I would be happy to tote around life! I absolutely LOVE hard luggage. Something about it is an instant throwback. The Brooks Brothers trunk is great. I also love the cupcake bags...I wonder how much they carry. Of course, Karl Lagerfeld's Goyard collection is amazing!

archivingfashion said...

I love the vintage-inspired luggage, I've always thought that it's so cool. Even for just holding a scarf collection and whatnot.

Erika said...

This post reminds me of Sophie Kinsella's Becky Bloomwood. She was always one to spend loads of money on luggage, regardless of the fact that she had no travel plans. Love this post, darling! :)

Meg said...

I love the yellow train case.

E said...

Who would have thought I would have loved something from J crew so much?? That yellow box is so damn cool!

Debbie Shiamay said...

Wow Carrie your photos get better and better everytime. I love them! About time i try trvelling in style myself haha.

trishiekoh said...

FAB images!

Amelia said...

I've been looking for vintage suitcases that aren't too expensive. They would be really nice for photoshoots.

♥ Marta ♥ said...

travel bags are always a challenge.... you want cuteness factor and the practicality :)

The Haute-Shopper said...

Oh, these are so terrific! I've always loved the idea of traveling in style, with the huge LV or Goyard trunks. I've also had my eye on the cuter Orla Kiely items, but in the end, I'm still sticking to my reliable Samsonites. I just don't think I could ever bear to have any of those damaged or scratched... sigh.

Wishing you a fab weekend my dear!

Rachel Follett said...

Great title! I think I need new luggage after looking at all of these gorgeous shots!

The Little Fashion Treasury said...

These are all gorgeous, CC!
