Who would have thought that finding a fashionable rolling carry-on would be SO hard? After looking just about everywhere, I was ready to throw in the towel and give in to the back pain that comes along with carrying a shoulder bag weighed down with a laptop and camera. More than that, luggage isn’t cheap, and I was not comfortable spending $300 on a Tumi or Victorinox that I was not excited about. Boy am I glad I happened to stroll into Toss Designs on Chestnut Street!
Hallelujah! There it was. Sitting pretty on the shelf, an orange leather rolling carry-on perfect for a fashionista. The color is not the only thing worth drooling over. The leather is incredibly soft and features fine gold and bamboo details. Gold hardware is the key to my heart, and during my online search, all that I could find was chrome! The interior is lined in canvas and includes a side zip pocket. As if it wasn’t good enough already, get ready for this…the wheel base is detachable. When you’re off the plane, remove the wheels and use as a shoulder bag. How fabulous is that for $186?!
Aesthetics are important but functionality is key. This baby has both! I was able to safely carry my 15 inch MacBook Pro (see case here), a Nikon DSLR camera (in a bulky case), a makeup bag, wallet, and cellphone with room for plenty more. I don’t think I have ever been so excited to wait in line at airport security. I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but I am banking on some compliments from the TSA agents! If it took me this long to find a fashionable rolling carry-on, chances are high they’ve never laid eyes on one either.
Now about the outfit…if it looks familiar, you have a good memory. I last wore the cape here. Anyway, with Sedona as my final destination, I thought the Southwestern print was very fitting. With temperatures fluctuating from the high 40’s to the high 70’s I swapped out the black booties for a pair of caged cutout heels. I always wear Seychelles shoes when I know I’ll be on my feet for several hours. Stay tuned for more details and follow @kelseykaplanfashion on Instagram for photos of Red Rock country!
