Kate Spade Par Avion Airline Cosmetic Case

Now, this is just absolutely clever. In fact, coming across the Kate Spade Par Avion Airline Cosmetic Case today was perfect timing because I really need a new cosmetic case. I’ve had the same one for a few years now and it has held up really well. As it gets dirty, I clean it, but I am thinking it is just time to pitch the one I have and replace it with a new one. When it comes to cosmetic cases, I don’t like to go too fancy because, let’s be honest, it is just going to get super dirty super quickly.

This Kate Spade cosmetic case is perfect. First of all, I am not going to drop a bunch of cash on this thus making me wait longer for a new handbag I’ve been drooling over and saving up for. This clear cosmetic bag is designed after an old fashioned mail envelope. You can use this for travel or simply at home to hold some of your make-up. Very cute idea, excellent execution and not a bad price. I might have to replace my current cosmetic case with this one. Buy through Bloomingdale’s for $50.

    I currently use Kate Spade as my bathroom/cosmetic bag and it has held up really well. For these kinds of bags, it’s necessary that the plastic be top-notch (sounds silly, but is true!!!) and Kate Spade’s fits the bill.

    I was actually in a Kate Spade store today and saw this. I love Kate Spade, but two things went through my mind: first, is it airline compliant? I couldn’t tell and the card inside didn’t tell me anything. A clear bag like this would be perfect for all my less than 3 oz. bottles for checking on flights, but I have no idea. Second, $50? Really? I mean, I have a beautiful KS cosmetic bag that has a ton of compartments, etc., and it was over $50, but definitely worth it. I just don’t feel like this bag is worth $50, especially after seeing it in person. It’s the kind of bag that I would wait for it to go on sale and nab it up for the eventual $10-$2 price tag. This is what I would want to get for this kind of clear travel bag: http://www.verabradley.com/product/Category/Accessories/Transparent-Travel-Pouch/154932/defaultColor/Bali%20Blue/pc/638/sc/645/c/0.uts And for $7, you can’t beat that.

    Oops – I meant to type $10-$20 price tag, not $2. :) That would be quite the steal!

    $50 for this? I bought one that’s almost exactly the same at Crate and Barrel last year (and it stated that it does meet FAA regulations) for $6.99! Is the Kate Spade name on a plastic cosmetics case worth $43?

    This is TOO cute, but I hate how it’s clear. I wish it weren’t, otherwise, I’d be all over it in a heartbeat. Maybe when it goes on sale…

    Thanks a lot for this superb article. But I had trouble navigating past your site because I kept getting 502 bad gateway error. Just thought to let you know.

    I love this and got one on sale for $26 at katespade.com. I agree that it is definitely not worth $50 but worth the sale price! The best part is that it is clear, great idea for today’s frequent flyer when not checking!
