the suitcase that called out my name…

don’t you love those unexpected moments that happen? not planned…but things just work out right…now of course…it sounds like i’m about to recall a fabulous memory with friends…or an unexpected visitor…but no…i’m speaking about a great find…that happened while shopping for a client…

while i knew that i was in need of a new suitcase…it was something that i had been holding off…while i have a nice set at home…the problem is…that the biggest suitcase of the set…weighs a ton!  before items are placed in it…i am already working with a disadvantage…not a good thing…as my suitcase is easily over the allotted weight amount…

so it was time to purchase one that worked better for me…and was light!

so…a client is heading off to a fun vacation…and was in need of a light handbag…that would go with her already planned wardrobe…while it needed to be big enough to travel with…it needed to be light enough as to not put undue stress on the back and arm…while i had already sent her several options…i thought i would pop into my local tj maxx store…they have great selections…at great prices…

so i found several options for her…took pics…and while i was waiting for a response from her…i started checking out the suitcases…and well…this one just called out my name…animal print?  yes, please…i also loved the fact that it was “different” enough…so easy to spot at the airport carousel…while my last set was red…at one time…that stuck out…but not anymore…i think every other suitcase is now red on the carousel…

the only test needed was the lightness test…and this baby is light!  and big!

have i mentioned that animal print is my neutral?

and then…on top of it all…it had a nice clearance tag on it…i seriously can’t believe this beauty was around long enough to be put on clearance…

so meet my new dvf animal print suitcase…i feel like i need to plan a trip…and soon!
