Down the Rabbit Hole

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!

And lastly, the Mr. Molten tote by Deadly Ponies. The leather does look molten and I’d look pretty hot pulling my laptop out of this beauty. Again, a third of the price.

Deadly Ponies Mr. Molten,

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!

Rimowa Topas Stealth Multiwheel,

Wait. We have more thoughts. Keep reading.
