I have a thing for luggage. And I’m not talking about any regular ‘ole Samsonite either. I mean a fabulous piece of luggage to travel in style with in the likes of Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly. Any time I see an old steamer trunk, a weekend bag or a vanity case… my heart goes pitter patter. So, you can only imagine my delight when I first set eyes on J.Crew’s new luggage designs this past year… and you can only imagine my disappointment when I saw the $1600 price tag and all my hopes and dreams were shattered. I knew I needed something to fix this whole in my life… something to fill the void that this pretty case of sunshiny dreams left upon me. Then I saw these stylish compact boxes from West Elm and I thought… why not… it’s not luggage, but it will do… definitely separated at birth!
