It’s been ages since I sat in front of my computer and just did the whole ping-ponging from website to website in search of nothing in particular.
Usually my searches are pretty info specific like, “How do you get a tick out of a dog?” or “What is a Homophone?” But to just sit and get lost on the world wide web…that just kind of seems naughty.
I quickly got into trouble on Monday, falling like Alice through the ethernet looking at nothing in particular until I got lost in the tunnel of carry-on bags.
I have a closet full of beautiful daytime bags, but my travel accessories do not say “Lady-of-Style.” They quite literally say, Jansport. Head hanging horrification! Who am I pretending to be?
After an hour of click, click, clicking, I had some clarity on just that question. If money were no object, my carry on would be, without a doubt, the Saint Laurent Sac De Jour Carryall. Just the name alone says it all. At a roomy 11 3/4″ x 16″ x 7″, my computer, tabloids, and all airplane essentials would fit comfortably inside this piece of luxury, not only beautifully, but stylishly. I could hold my head high gliding through security and walking down the tarmac.
But before I started counting the change in my kids’ piggy banks, I ventured further down the rabbit hole and met some pretty interesting characters that could be mine for less than the two-thousand and nine hundred benjamins that I’d be needing for my Sac De Jour.
Slow and Steady Wins the Race. Yes it does, and this unconventional, 4-sided design I find deliciously intriguing. At a third of the price of the Laurent, but offering an additional two sides, that’s quite the bargain. I could book a trip to Palm Springs with that savings!
With the two-thirds savings that the last two carry-on options have afforded me, I just might upgrade my checked baggage to anything by Rimowa. Now that’s traveling in style. Bon Voyage! Wake me up when my private jet—named Delta—lands!
