Before we jump into the post all about the hunt for the item.. I have decided to break these into 2 post one for online hunting and one for in store hunting. Now let’s do this!
It has now been about 2 weeks since I began my hunt for the perfect luggage.. Everyday I am online hunting sites like Target, JCP, Walmart, Amazon, Wish, and so on. This post I will share with you what I found online.
But first let me remind you exactly what I am looking for:
- at least 28”
- hardsided (which I may not have mentioned prior)
- unique color (well at least not black)
- 4 wheeled (also not mentioned)
- big enough to hold my laptop and other essentials
- small enough to fit under the seat by feet
Now the suitcase I already have is a bubblegum pink carry on roller board. I bought it from Burlington for around 60 bucks. That looks like this one:
Here is what my online search turned up for luggage:
The first placed I checked was of course Amazon since I am a certified “prime-aholic”.. I found this really nice orange suitcase. I love the color because I always rep my SF Giants so an orange suitcase would be perfection with SF sticker or two!
This suitcase is 28”, hardsided, not black, and 4 wheeled. The price is 90 bucks. Want to check it out >>CLICK HERE<<
The next place I checked was Overstock. Overstock is a place that I check out a whole lot but rarely purchase from only because I seem to find better deals else places. However I did find this steel blue hardsided suitcase that is pretty and sturdy!
This suitcase is 27”, hardsided, and not black. The price is 105 bucks. Want to check it out >>CLICK HERE<<
The final place for luggage I checked was ebags.com this site is pretty amazing. If you are in need of a bag you should check out this website! I found a 3 piece set that I actually have had my eye on for a few years now. This is Nine West white with a fabulous snake print stripe. Also it had gold handlebars.
This set comes with 28”, 24”, and 20” pieces. They come in black but I would choose the white. And yes they are hardsided. Check them out and other bags on this site by >>CLICKING HERE<<
And here is my online hunt for the travel purse:
The first place I checked was Pinterest and they turned up was the site loandsons.com with the beautiful but expensive overnight bag “The OG”..
This is the perfect size bag and even as a slot for shoes. The issue is this bag originally retails at 295 bucks. >>CLICK HERE<< to check it out for yourself.
Again on Pinterest I found Sole Society and the Mason bag. This bag is so chic and sturdy looking. I love the extra compartment underneath the actual carry all compartment.
The size of the bag maybe a little bit big to fit under the seat by my feet. But would definitely fit all that I carry with me when I travel. The price of the bag is a nice 80 bucks. Take a look at this amazing bag >>CLICK HERE<<
Finally the last online site I looked at was Henri Bendel simply because I love this store and have always wanted a luggage piece from them. They initially had one similar to the Sole Society shape but that one is not on the site anymore. I did find this simple and chic overnight bag that would fit everything.
This bag is a perfect size and is the classic HB striped print. It also retails for a nice 60 bucks. Go see this beauty >>CLICK HERE<<
That is all of the online hunting info and next post you will see exactly what I find during my in store hunt. I hope you are enjoying this series and of course I am always wanting to know your experiences hunting for luggage and tips and tricks.
