Do you love to have things in your life organized and easy to find?  I certainly do. 

I found a cute Baggallini bag several years ago while on vacation and after using it for a few weeks (product testing) decided it would be a great item to carry in our shop and online.  And, as they say, the rest is history.

I have traveled with small and large Baggallini bags for about six years now, to Europe and back several times, and I highly recommend them as a great travel bag and "daily use" bag. What really sold me on the A La Carte Tote was the back zipper pocket which becomes a suitcase handle sleeve when unzipped. This back zipper pocket can additionally hold a Kindle or paperwork when fully zipped.  Love that!

Baggallini Inc. was founded in 1995 by Dixie Powers and Anne Simmons, two veteran flight attendants. It makes sense that the A La Carte Tote easily fits underneath any airplane seat. I have found that they also fold nicely into your suitcase if you want to travel with more than one bag (I always do).

Here are the details: it comes in 18 colors, is very light weight-- only 21.5 oz -- and is made from water resistant "crinkle" fabric; it has 2 leather handles, 3 big outside pockets, 2 cell phone/i-phone pockets, 2 water/bottle mesh pockets, places for pens to attach, and a detachable interior zipper I.D. pouch which also holds cash or change. It measures 11"H x 18"W x 5.25"D.

Do you own a Baggallini? I would love to know how well they work for you so please leave a comment below,. Happy traveling!

  1. Thanks for sharing this lovely Tote! It looks very spacious and the hues are stunning! Beautiful leather handles and hardware used ~ oh so stylish!
    A gal can never have too many travel totes!

  2. I have a slight bag fetish...and this bag looks fabulous!
    I travel a lot and love anything practical, with lots of pockets, yet it must be pretty.
    I wonder if I can get one in France?

  3. Bonjour, Chez Loulou, I too have a thing about handbags that are practical but also stylish and pretty. Baggallini is only sold in the US and Canada, as far as I know. I am unaware if it is sold in France at this time. We could ship from our shop but I believe the shipping costs would be a bit high....Je suis desolee...
