This weekend, hubby and I are taking a really quick trip to Orlando to celebrate my very fabulous friend’s big birthday; in Disney World, to be exact (and I’m totally giddy!) But I am the world’s worst packer, particularly when it comes to shorter trips. Try as I might, I normally wind up packing a luggage, an actual full-sized luggage, for most one- or two-day getaways, even when the luggage is barely filled. This weekend, I’m determined to pack only the essentials in a throw-in-the-backseat carryall, more specifically: the weekender bag. I have an older version of the Deux Lux Sequin Weekender Bag, but it’s beginning to get a bit worse for wear … it’s a sad sad day when the sequins start to fall off … of anything, really. So I’m eying a few of these luxe new weekender bag styles — torn between a rich-looking leather duffel and something a bit more funky and colorful. Do you have a go-anywhere weekender or duffel bag that you swear by?
By the way, be sure to check out my post on nothing but sequin weekender bags (updated in 2014)!
