When I was little, my mom had a mint green leather vanity case that she would always use every time we went on vacation, and I remember being totally jealous of it. Not that it was particularly spectacular (I was born in the mid 80s and I think that particular set of luggage was a holdover from the late 70s, based on the color) or that I had anything to put in it at that age – it just seemed like the sort of thing that big girls had for all of their big girl beauty needs.
Fast forward a couple of decades, and I have plenty of beauty products that need a home when I travel and absolutely zero adorable pieces of luggage in which to put them. So maybe the Marc by Marc Jacobs Pretty Nylon Vanity Case is my childhood dream come true?
I can’t say that I cosign on the color choice – it’s a little too taupe for my taste, and I tend to like brightly colored travel gear. We’ll give the folks at Marc by Marc Jacobs the benefit of the doubt, though, since this probably comes in at least a few other color options. The interior is filled with vinyl pockets and lots of space for makeup, brushes, hair products and the various and sundry other things that I currently end up throwing into a Target bag while traveling. Odds are, this little vanity case will keep me a lot more organized than that does. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $158.
