Yet, this year as I start to pack up and fold my things into my bag, I have to admit that I am a little disheartened by the state of my luggage. My blasé black duffle bag couldn't look any sadder or less stylish with its monotoned design. That is why this post is ode to cute duffle bags, passport cases and luggage tags...
