In the world of luggage there is one style that every sophisticated gal must have in her rotation. The weekender—so called because you should be able to pack everything you need for a two-night getaway into it—is my most frequently used accessory aside from my everyday work tote. It's is the bag I use for airplane carry-on, gym clothes, flea market finds, and anything else that requires a roomy sack.
And there are so many good ones out there right now! I'm drawn to styles with a functional feel and a fashionable twist. A leather trim here, a stripe or two there there, or an unexpected sense of scale and proportion suit me just fine. Plus it can't be too precious. I need to be able to throw my weekender on the ground, mess it up a little. Because who wants to worry about scuff marks on your days off?
