rationale for luxury

I love when I can find ways to rationalize extravagant purchases and just found one more reason to purchase beautiful designer luggage. When the zipper is broken or a seam tears they can have a beautiful second life as the base of a very glamorous table.

Ok, so it may only slightly rationalize this purchase but it does create a lovely look.

totally with you Blair! Emma (at White and Wander) and her mother bought the most amazing cases at auction, they are to die for. Have made fabulous props, coffee tables and storage units for them both x

You can also rationalize that not only are you using them as a beautiful side table, but they can store your lovelies inside!!
great images.

Absolutely! Not only is this justification for buying them in the first place, but it's also a great excuse to travel more----that way they get worn out faster and a ready for the bedside!

Then of course you'd have to replace them with new luggage for traveling too...it's win win!
