“One day we on the Autobahn swervin drivin/ Next day we in the sun on the Virgin Islands/ If you wit me ain’t no time to sleep/ ‘Specially at Wet Willy’s on Miami Beach.”–Ludacris, ‘Pimpin all Over the World.’

Happy Tuesday!
Isn’t the weather just gorgeous!?! Yesterday I spent my lunch break luxuriating outside, feeling the sun. The fabulous weather made me start thinking about my spring and summer travel plans. I only have one trip planned to Abaco, Bahamas…


…for August, but I’m seriously contemplating a quick trip to London…

…and Paris…

…for next month.
And of course I can’t go anywhere without keeping it super stylish!
Right now my suitcase arsenal includes a sad green carry on and an even sadder, plain black rolly bag (with a pathetic red ribbon tied on the top to distinguish it from the scores of other large black rolly bags).
I want stylish, chic, yet functional luggage for my summer travels…and doing a quick search, I found quite a few gems:

Top Row: Diane Von Furstenberg 21″ Carry On, $160, www.1800luggage.com; Sunspot Travel Case, $348, www.anthropologie.com; Tommy Hilfiger Luggage Classics 27″ Expandable Upright, $180, www.ebags.com.
Middle Row: Wendy Roll Bag, $220, www.flight001.com; Samsonite X’ion Boarding Bag, $85, www.ebags.com; Capri ML Traveler, $78, www.flight001.com.
Bottom Row: Diane Von Furstenberg Hearts Collection 21″ Expandable Carry-On Upright, $170, www.ebags.com; Loop Printed Canvas Weekender, $50, www.urbn.com; Pierre Cardin Juno Unisex Lightweight Luggage Set, $150, www.luggageguy.com.
While some of those bags cost the price of a plane ticket to Europe, I’m sure the investment is worth it. And you have the added protection against luggage mix ups.
Happy Trails!
So finally! The winner of the Nautica N Series Straight Leg Jeans is none other than…

  1. I must show my love to Edwin for doing his style even though I may have lost, it’s great to see style expressed so many different ways as shown in the contest. Michael Andrew

  2. I don’t know why it was necessary to pin it down to one winner–all of the men featured were stylish and gorgeous!
