I am referring to the actual handbag that you carry throughout your trip, but not the luggage itself. The type of trip I have in mind is more like family trip with sightseeings and shopping; not business nor cruises and such. I read in the previous threads that people carry their designer bags (Lv, gucci etc) on their trips. But I do not like the thoughts of putting my LV under the seats on the plane make me uncomfortable. Also the thoughts of having the bags stolen too worries me. Do you carry designer or non-designer bags on your trip? Or what brands do you recommand? Pleas share!
