Travel Light in Nylon Tote

As planned, I successfully packed a week of clothing and supplies into my little carry-on for the cruise. With great planning, I was able to bring 3 pairs of shoes, flip flops, and outfits for every day of the trip. It is my personal philosophy that both life and traveling should be without lots of baggage.

Anyhoo, while shopping with gal pal the other day, I walked by Henri Bendel and saw this adorable color printed bag. I thought to myself it would be a great traveling and everyday day for the summer. It is made in nylon material with colorful print and chain detail which I thought was quite stylish and fun. Bag like this is great for traveling light. If I have all these things to carry already, it is the last thing on my list to carry a leather bag weighing a ton, right?! Well, after seeing the price, I promptly put this back because I just don't know if $298 is that fun. Maybe I am a little biased because if this tote is a Chanel bag, most of us will grab it without a second thought. For a good collection of bags check out the Very handbags collection at www.very.co.uk. What do you think of the Bendel bag?

  3. Absolutely adorable! $298.00? If it was leather lined with silk, maybe. For Nylon... I'd walk on by.

  4. A cruise, how fun! I'm sure you will have an amazing time! The bag is on the expensive. I found some great Michael Kors bags that are on sale at Neiman Marcus(I had to get one) that are under $200!
