New In

I'm traveling to London, Paris, and Beijing soon and I needed a travel purse for these trips. As much as I would love to bring my trusted Louis on my travels I know it's not the best idea. I would prefer to keep my Louis rather than have it taken. However, I will not carry an ugly bag and I'm not going to spend money on a bag I'm never going to use again. Then, I discovered this beauty on eBay. It had everything I wanted out of a travel purse...It was black so it would match with anything. It was nylon so I didn't have to worry about getting it dirty and if it did, I could just wash it off. It was small but not too small to carry my essentials for the day, and it was across the body for easy all day walking trips. Most importantly, it was designer without the flashing lights and neon sign that screamed "I'm designer, steal me!" I carefully watched the bag and made my move with only 10 seconds to spare. A few days later it arrived and I'm so excited to start traveling with it!

A shoulder strap is a definite MUST for a good travel bag - great find! And I'm envious of your trip, it sounds like it's going to be wonderful

This bag will be perfect for your trip and I know what you mean about not wanting to spend too much on a bag for a vacation. Enjoy Europe and that is so cool your bf used to live in Shanghai :) Maybe you two will have to travel there next summer. :)

I have read all of these things about not taking nice purses, wedding rings and etc. over seas. I say why have them then? Just be careful! If not, Traget always has cheap affordable cross body bags!
