I've developed quite an attachment to Longchamp bags ever since I got the schlepping bag. It held up surprisingly well to all the torture I inflicted upon it, including being checked-in during a flight from Tokyo to Manila with quite unfortunate weather. I wouldn't say it's as good as new but it still looks pretty damn good.
Yep. You've already met the schlepping bag and the Charles Anastase narcolepsy bag. The schlepping bag is from the Planetes line; the Charles Anastase is a limited edition Le Pliage from 2009. The other two are Les Pliages in the Spring/Summer 2010 colors. I got so giddy when I found them in Narita airport (all other Longchamp stores were carrying the Fall/Winter 2010 colors which are rather dull and dreary) that I had to force myself to leave the store to breathe and think really long and hard about which ones to purchase. I ended up getting two in Rosalie and Citrine.
The large one I had to use immediately to put my stuff in because I exceeded the check-in limit (I promise this will never happen again ever ever ever), and I chose to transfer my things because the overbaggage fee is more expensive than the bag! I knew overbaggage fees are expensive but I wasn't expecting them to be shockingly so! I ended up with 5 pieces of carry-on luggage but they did let me check-in two more bags at the boarding gates for free. Yep, the new bag got checked-in with the schlepping bag as well (she survived unscathed save for a couple of dirty marks that came off easily with wet wipes).
I'm pretty sure I should be banned from buying any more Longchamp bags, or any bag for that matter, for the rest of the year. But, eh, four is not a good number. :p
