My DH and I are taking a ski trip soon and I'm wondering if it's too abusive to take along my baby: My bbag (rouge vif city). I want to use it as much as possible, and I would always keep it with me (carry it on the plane, etc.) but has anyone had bad experiences doing this-- i.e., it's too hard on the bag? Any input would be appreciated!

Well, when I went to the US last summer I used my Rouille Day as one of my carry-ons, and she held up wonderfully. If anything its all the use after I got back that's worn her in. :biggrin:. Only thing I did do was get a spare plastic bag to put on the floor under the seat so my baby wouldn't be touching the floor directly.

I haven't done any traveling yet, but when I go on vacation this year I plan on taking my city with me. Good luck and I am sure that the other ladies can be more help.

I'm taking my Day bag to Italy in two weeks. I'm a little hesitant, but my stepmom is there now and had her wallet stolen out of her bag without her even knowing until it was too late, so I want to take a deep bag. And on the Day the zipper is right under my arm, so a pickpocket would have a really hard time getting in there without touching me enough that I would notice.

I'm considering taking my GH natural work with me on an upcoming trip...
I might have to rethink...I'm worried about getting her dirty.

I took my Marron Weekender to Vegas a few weeks ago and she is fine! I had hawk eyes on her at all times though!:roflmfao:

It depends on where I'm going. When I went to Spain I didn't bring it with me because I knew I was going to spend most of the time on the beach - that's the only trip I didn't bring my bbag (we have the same bbag btw)!

I'll be taking mine with me on the airplane. I have no choice, I bought her abroad so I have to get her home somehow! I'll definitely bring her on my carry on though - would never put her in my suitcase! I'm only getting a small First, though.

One of my days is always my first choice - super comfy and enough room even to stuff a light sweater and unanticipated purchases. But I always put it in another bag for protection (washable Sportsac tote) for going thru security and under the plane seat.

Yeah, I use my City for when I travel too - it's light and totally not flashy, so it's a great designer bag to hold my stuff both as a carry on and as a bag!

I've travelled with my black city many a time and she has come out beautifully, but now that I have a baby who has a thing for the tassles on all my Bbags I may not when I'm travelling alone with her but only because she so wants to pull them and even bite them and frankly travelling with a child is stressful enough especially on a 21 hour flight (which I am going on later on this week)!!!!:nuts:
I guess apart from the above my only hesitation is if the Bbags were of lighter colours, but yours should be fine and of course please do bring a clear bag to protect HER under the seat etc. HAVE FUN SKIING!

^girlie, a child gnawing on Bbag tassels, now THAT is a cute picture :tender:

Great tips everyone!! I love the idea of a clear bag to protect under the seat, I'll definitely do that. Thanks so much all!
