Yes, I actually travel with a Louis Vuitton suitcase people but the disclaimer is that it's not mine. I am housing this suitcase along with a bunch of other things in my storage room for a friend who generously allows me to use it when I travel. I do have a suitcase of my own but let's be real, I take advantage of the opportunity to experience luxury anytime, anywhere.
Here are a few rules I have created for myself when traveling with Louis...
1. Do NOT lose Louis
The last time I travelled to Toronto I took Louis. It was midnight when I arrived at the airport due to the 3-hour time difference. I waited at the luggage carousel until the bitter end and was finally forced to admit that Louis was missing. After hyperventilating and panic attacks subsided I reported the loss. The lovely agent promised me I would be reunited with Louis the following day. Let's just say I held my breath for 24 long hours until it safely arrived at my destination. I was calculating exactly how many hours I would have to work to replace Louis and it was not a fun calculation!!
Louis is a heavy brute. There is no doubt that this guy is well constructed and uses some kick ass canvas and leather. It's definitely heavier than a regular suitcase but you can still pack loads of crap in there. The workouts are for zipping and unzipping Louis. You need to be on your A-game to open and close this guy. The giant metal teeth fit together so snugly and securely that I have no doubt that anyone thinking they might take a look inside will give up in frustration.
3. Hire a Wardrobe Consultant
Louis is a looker and he has a particular way about himself. Don't try to upstage him and don't wear clothes that clash and make him look cheap and all back-alley fake. Have some respect for crying out loud!
That's about all there is to traveling with a high roller like Louis. I like to enjoy my small moments of luxury and my glimpses into the way the fancy folk live.
I'll be in Toronto all week so I won't be doing too much blog reading but I'll be back to catch up soon.
