I was recently contacted by Midnight Velvet to review a product of my choice from their website. I had never heard of them before and had to take a look to see what they were all about. I was very pleasantly surprised to see the variety of offerings on their online shop. They carry everything from makeup, to jewelry, to clothes, to home accessories.
I chose the Belle Bleu Brocade travel bag as it seemed the most practical choice for me to use while travelling. (I plan to try several more things in the future)
The website didn't have a lot of information on this bag. I was unsure what exactly I was getting, but I loved the design on it, and being wheeled with a handle made it seem like it would be very easy to take along with me.
My first impression of the bag- It was beautiful! The picture did it no justice. The color of the bag shifts from a grayish blue to a reddish tone depending on the angle and lighting. The paisley print makes it even more stunning and adds a sophisticated touch to the print. The bag is very lightweight and sturdy. The wheels glide smoothly and the handle reaches high enough that even my nearly 6' tall self could reach it with ease.
Padded laptop pocket
I used this bag on a trip to Chicago to test drive it for my review. It held a lot more that I thought it would! I was able to carry my laptop, 2 outfits, an extra pair of shoes, my makeup/hygiene bag, hair supplies, and a lightweight jacket in my bag. This bag was very easy to maneuver and handle in and out of the car.
If you are looking for a new travel bag, this is a great one and I would recommend trying it out. Midnight Velvet also has other similar bags is various other patterns and shades on their website.
