Today I am bringing some NYC to London.
As you know I live in-between the country side and West London. I find myself spending more time in the country, I prefer working in the peace and quite and of course working in my walk in wardrobe. If you haven’t seen my walk in closet click here.
This means I feel like I have little breaks all the time. I pack a mini suitcase and off I go for a couple of hectic days in the city. I have spent the last two days in London, this is what I wore. I sneaked in one last skirt before it gets too cold to wear one. The weather is okay in London, I can get away with a thin coat and felt fine wearing a skirt. I had lots of meetings so it was nice to make the effort. How amazing is this star skirt? I paired this look with my new lace up boots. Tomorrow, make sure you watch my new video on my YouTube channel, it includes these boots and lots more luxury items.
The most exciting item in this post for me is my new leather suitcase. I travel a lot and I mean a lot. Whether it is a night away for a press event, a couple of nights for a city break (usually work) or a long haul holiday I need to have a mini suitcase and a nice carry on. Ever since my honeymoon last year I have been so into my luggage. I really love having a nice weekend bag/carry on suitcase.
I was so excited when I found this Henri Bendel Saffiano leather suit case. Watch my mini Henri Bendel haul here. You can see the dust bag it came in and you can also hear about how I discovered Henri Bendel during my Coachella trip this April.
When the suitcase arrived I was so happy. This case is super luxe and chic! I was blown away with the quality; it’s fit for first class. Unfortunately this poor suitcase will be traveling in economy with me, unless it’s a work trip. This case doesn’t just look beautiful, it is also very practical. I have never owned a case with so many features and compartments. Imagine how this would look against my black and gold Balmain blazer, so chic. I am so excited for my holiday this Friday and equally excited to pack everything in my new case.
This case also comes in so many different colours; my favourites are of course the black but also the red, grey and croc moc. I added in the vanity case to my order because I loved how cute and matching it looked. I knew this would be really practical for traveling, I will use it for my make up. Again it is very practical with the compartments, long strap and it even has a mirror. I used this as a bag the other day, it looked so cute. This also comes in other colours.
I was initially on the look out for some travel bags but me being me, I ended up searching the entire site and found some really fab finds.
The fist exciting find was my “C” initial necklace, I love products with my name on or initialled things. I have been wearing this everyday. Click here to shop more initials.
Next was my sunnies. I usually stay away from sunglasses with frames as the do not usually suit me. However I liked the look of these semi cat eyes ones and thought the black and gold would suit my new case. Again so so happy with them, I finally found framed sunnies that suit me.
Lastly, my new dome satchel. I thought this bag would be great for everyday. The Saffiano leather matches the rest of my new Henri Bendel collection and I loved all the compartments. For just under £400 I think this bag is a great little investment for a good quality, every day bag. I love the shape and how durable the leather is. My Christmas gift ideas just went into over drive, this website has gifts for everyone.
I ordered a few more bits but I will save them for my next article. In the mean time don’t for get to watch my mini haul here and follow me on Snapchat (@iamchouquette) and Instagram as I will be using the travel cases on Friday.
