LULU Guinness red suitcase!
I’ve been head over heels in love with this
little Lulu beauty ever since I clapped eyes on the bright and bold lipstick print, the rouge red colour and the night sky shine and gloss a while ago on the Selfridges website.
I decided in 2013 that for a little treat
for myself I’d purchase a suitcase.
Why a suitcase!?
Due to 2014 having quite a busy travel schedule that’s without
going to Uni or on holidays (Eeek!) and also because my
Dad has the most incredible mini black suitcase which I took with me on my
trips to London last year. The suitcase alone sparked convocation and awe. It’s
not the colour, the style or even the brand of the suitcase that sparks
attention, it’s the stickers and prints that are on it from each location he’s
visited. Foreign language speakers spoke
amongst themselves pointing and making gestures. I too want to travel, just
like my dad and I think the perfect memoir of my journeys is to tag up on a
suitcase. Hence the sudden suitcase
lust. Life has already started and it’s about time I documented it in a
The little black suitcase has traveled with him, the world over, China, Japan you name it, he’s been
there and I too hope to do lots of traveling throughout my life.
Now In the ‘normal world’ any suitcase would do. However. Being a fashion conscious body in the world of
fashion it’s all about the accessories.
As I won’t have masses of stickers to begin with I’d end up with a plain black
suitcase. I want something with a bit of pizzazz! Life, energy, something that
reflects my personality and lifestyle. One thing is an absolute must. It must
be on all fours: Time and time again I’ve seen poor people struggle on the London Underground because their
suitcase couldn’t run fast enough or keep up. Two wheels for me is a no no, I might as well just have a
campers rucksack (Heidi Hi Campers!) Four is better than two in this instance,
you simply glide through airport
terminals with four not drag and get
dragged by your suitcases lack of gusto.
I’ve debated for about two months now as to
which size to go for as this four wheeled luggage companion is just totally
ideal for work. Chic, elegant, won’t get lost easily and can fit all my
relevant ‘Stuff’ into it; trainers, laptop, tripod, camera, kitchen
sink, bath tub. You know, all the
Do I go small or go medium!? How
much space do I need. (The mind boggles)
anyway as my mind goes back and forth with the questioning of sizes (It’s hard
to figure it all out from measurements
and images online) My lust suitcase
starts popping up everywhere – It’s a sign!
Not only did uber cool stylist to the stars
and all round rad girl Alexis Knox pull hers out of her closet for a weekend
trip to Milan to style up the pre-season collection shoot for Sergei Grinko S/S 2014 but none other
that Emma Roberts also sported the same luggage after leaving the airport with
beau Evan Peters.
So there we have it –
this suitcase is totally stalking me and screaming Buy, Buy me Buy me! However
with a price tag of £225. Yes that is Two
hundred and twenty five Great British pounds and the fact that Lulu Guinness has a Sale on is swaying my mind and my
Oh life as a
fashionista is hard. #fashionworldproblems
So I'll ponder some more and I'll see you tomorrow,
Love you lots!
