Doesn't a new piece of luggage absolutely inspire you to set off on an adventure? I was recently gifted with a wonderful suitcase from Delsey and I can't wait to fill it with little black dresses for my next getaway - hopefully back to France! A French company, Delsey has been making stylish and innovative luggage since 1946 and sources tell me that a Delsey bag is sold every 10 seconds! Available in a wide variety of colors, sizes, and styles; all Delsey bags are designed to make packing more efficient and travel less burdensome. You can shop for Delsey online or at retailers in 110 countries.
I haven't had a chance to take my Delsey on the road yet but I know that it will be perfect for my next jaunt to Paris. On my last trip to the City of Lights, I stayed in a lovely private home that my travel companion found on Airbnb but next time I'll opt for the pampering and amenities that come with a hotel stay. Flipping through my trusty Michelin Guide for options in the chic Saint Germain des Prés neighborhood (6th Arrondissement); the three-star boutique Hotel Millésime sounds like a great option. Michelin describes it as "sunny colours complement fabrics and furniture chosen to create a warm atmosphere in the gorgeous rooms of this hotel."

And, of course, I would make sure that my Delsey included a fabulous little black dress for my Parisian adventure. I think a sexy frock by French designer Catherine Malandrino is perfect for a night out in the City of Lights. $395
