Florida Bag Lady

So when I started packing for my flight home last week I noticed something quite disturbing: my suitcase had shrunk. Ok, well that's not strictly true. Perhaps it would be more accurate to say that while staying in Florida these last couple of months I've accumulated more clothes than I had intended. And now they won't all fit back in the suitcase.

I've never had a need for one of those irritatingly small carry-on suitcases on wheels until now, and didn't relish the thought of parting with nearly $100 for something I'll probably never use again. That's why I was delighted with this total find, above, from The Rose Garden. Not only does the case fit within airline baggage restrictions, it comes in a 'so garish I love it' floral patten, with a satchel thrown in for good measure. And all for a ridiculously cheap $12.

The shoulder bag/satchel is sure to come in handy once I'm back in Bristol and I'm loving the sheer 'granny' feel the set has to it. All I have to do now is find a space for the bag in my suitcase...
