finally, fun carry-ons.

LV Damier bags are fine and all, but I find them a bit conservative and stuffy. Not to mention, a bit embarrassing when the woman in leopard print tights and hot pink lipstick with poodle in-tow is reaching for the same bag as it slides down the belt at baggage claim. I’m kidding. I don’t own Damier luggage.

Globe-Trotters are probably still my aesthetically favorite, but it’s not the best choice for my size, as they’re clumsy and heavy. Hideo Wakamatsu has a great line of luggage with a rainbow of colors + good choice of styles. Personally I like the bright jelly-bean colors, like the orange one below….but if your taste is more conservative, there’s plenty ‘o options to go around for you jet-setters or business superheroes alike. This carry-on is under 7lbs + has a 360 degree swivel. As if I need more reason to horse around in the security lines.

no, not the oil company, silly.

I don’t know what it is, but there’s something that innately draws me towards the chevron pattern. This month’s World of Interiors cover has an amazing chevron tiled floor on the cover. Some more chevron photos below…

tangerine tango

Congratulations to Tangerine Tango as being dubbed by Pantone as color of the year.

It’s always been one of my favorite colors, though I’ve always called it “Mandarin Red “. It’s a rich red-orange, that’s vibrant and yet more subdued than a fiery bright orange.
