I almost bought the complete set on Overstock, but I happened to see it at a local discount store (yes, same brand), I quickly purchased the two pieces available, then hunted for the third piece I needed to complete my set. Five stores later, I found it, but was dismayed to see a very noticeable snag and a run going along the back. I scratched at it with my fingernail to try and figure it out when I realized that the fleur de lis pattern appears to be machine "embroidered" or woven in a way that they could eventually wear in parts and snag. Reluctantly, I rationalized that if it snagged while just being handled in a store, how could it endure a real trip and rough baggage handlers? Unfortunately, due to that reason, I returned the two pieces I purchased and didn't buy the third I had been searching for... As adorable and pretty as this set is, I need my luggage to last a while. If you're just doing car trips and overnighters, this is probably fine.

Returned Product due to very cheap fabric. Not suitable for heavy airline travel in my opinion. Return process very good with overstock and I will continue to shop here.

The luggage is of excellent quality. The zippers and straps are durable and substantial enough to take airline abuse. The luggage fits together, one inside the other, to take up less storage space. The outer covers are very attractive and made of good, strong fabric. There is the added bonus of expandable sides - but the overall capacity is already generous. I definately would recommend this luggage set.

The set of four pieces of luggage arrived in great shape. They appear to be well-made; tough fabric, strong zippers and stitching. They should last for many years. The only negative is that the color is only on the front panel, as the rest of the piece is made of black material. The pictures do not show that. A previous set from this same manufacturer was covered in the solid color.

The fabric is thin on this pieces. I came back from Miami using the big suitcase and I already see the fabric wearing out.

This set was nice looking for the price and the number of pieces was convenient when packing, however, after only 1 flight there were substantial tears in the fabric on every piece I used. I would not suggest this luggage to frequent flyers; it was upsetting that it did not hold up better.

Best set of luggage Iżve ever had. It is very well made. The construction is sturdy, the wheels are large and glide easily, the fabric is heavy. Every wheeled piece, even the smallest, is spacious and they all have large outside pockets. I have flown with all 3 pieces and have never had a weight problem. The price is just right for the value. I highly recommend this luggage set."

We received the set in time for our vacation and we loved each piece. The two larger pieces provided enough room for our things, with room to spare and the zipped expansion space was not needed. The fabric on one piece was scratched by the airline handlers but it held up through their abuse.

Very Excellent Luggage, especially for the price. When my 4-piece set arrived I noticed a 6-year warranty for each piece. Fabric looks very durable, very well constructed! A person can spend that much for 1 piece of lesser quality luggage. I am very pleased with this purchase!

I used two pieces of this luggage set during my trip to California along with another luggage piece of a different brand that I've owned for 20 years. During the air travel, one of the Traveler's Choice pieces was significantly damaged.....zipper broke, and fabric was ripped. The airlines would not cover the damage, stating this was a quality issue as the broken zipper caused the fabric to rip, and my other two luggage pieces traveled without damage. My trip was 40 days after I received the luggage, and this was the first use of the pieces. I will persue replacement with the manufacturer, Traveler's Choice, and see what the company does. But what a hassle! This was a low price set, and I thought from the other reviews it was a bargain and would be of better quality. I quess you get what you pay for, and would not recommend this set as a good value.

I'm so impressed with this set of luggage. The largest pieces has lots of room for my stuff. The fabric is very nice and the whole thing is very sturdy overall. At first , I was not sure if this set could really last. I have used this set of luggage for at least 5 trips in 2 months, and it's just great. I couldn't be happier with my purchase.

I have only used this set once, but I can already tell that this set is a keeper! The sizes of the cases are great, and allow for every traveling scenario I can think of. I bought them for business, and can tell you the large one is big enough for me to pack for a week of travel (this includes four pair of shoes, 4 dress/suits and all my makeup/toiletries), and still have room for my laptop! The quality of the fabric is great, too. I figured for $****, then if it would just last a year, it would be worth it. I think it will more than meet my expectations. I bought this in blue...it is profesional, and still distinguishable from other luggage.

Sometimes you find a great deal and get more than what you paid for, but in this case you just get what you pay for. Four pieces of luggage for the price is a good value and the pattern is cute and easy to spot on a luggage carousel, but the quality is so-so. I took these on an international trip and the second smallest piece worked great as a carry-on. The largest piece, however, suffered from being checked. The hard sides of the luggage aren't that strong and my luggage was on the bottom of a pile so the sides buckled and crumpled a little (permanently). Nothing broke but I don't have much faith in it surviving many more trips. As others pointed out, there is no hard backing, either, so the luggage feels very flimsy and the fabric is not especially tough, to boot. These are best for carry ons or road/train trips, but not really for the abuse of being checked on flights.

Ordered two sets of this luggage and received the shipment in a timely manner. Packed the largest bag of one set the day before leaving for a one week trip. Picked up the bag to weigh (weighed in at 35 pounds) and the handle split. There is a thin piece of metal within the fabric used to form the handle and it appears it either broke or slipped away from the rivet holding the handle to the bag. This piece of metal is very sharp and it ultimately cut the fabric of the handle. Reported the problem after our return and it took 7 business days to get an answer. We would have liked to exchange the large bag only but this was not possible, according to the "warehouse". A return label was e-mailed to us and we will return the luggage.

Great overall appearance with plenty of room. The fabric is nice and durable. The shoe pockets are great. Good deal for the price.

I bought this luggage for a trip to Europe. Before we even made it to our hotel, one of the wheels went askew AND the fabric had been ripped. Just not durable.

Received this set of lugggage and was amazed at the quality for the price. I did lot of preliminary shopping of price, value and quality and will say unequivocably that this set is the best bargain on the Internet. The fabric is as heavy as any more expensive set, good wheels, good zippers, right size pieces to use for traveling. I just came back from a 2 week trip and everything worked out great. I'll be taking several trips in the near future and expect to get great usage out of this set.

I've used the luggage for my business trips and vacations. They are really wonderful luggage to have. The fabrics looks very nice and the pockets are very userful.

I like the construction, styling, textures etc.. My only complaint was the smell. The plastics, textiles had a strong chemical smell for a few weeks. I tried numerous things to get rid of the scent. I left all 4 pieces open in a spare room over a week. I placed the pieces outside in a warm sunny location all day. Tried fabric spray fresheners.. dryer sheets.. etc. Nothing seem to help but time. I do like the set. I'm glad I ordered the set long before my trip. It held up well on the flight. All in all, I think its a good value for your dollar.
When you are purchasing bed sheets, you have a lot to consider. Color, size and style are all important factors you will want to think about when you're looking for the ideal sheets, but the most important factor of all is fabric. The fabric of your sheets will determine how comfortable you are at night. Everyone has a different favorite among sheet fabrics, so take a look at the bed sheet fabric guide below to learn about their varying characteristics.
A bed-in-a-bag set is a wonderful way to instantly update the look of your bedroom. Available in a wide variety of sizes, fabrics and colors, bed-in-a-bag sets can easily fit into any bedroom decor. Bed-in-a-bag sets also save time and money because everything you need to change the look of your bed can be found in one set, at a fraction of the cost of purchasing individual bedding pieces. Look below for answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about bed-in-a-bag sets.
The thread count of bed sheets refers to the number of threads per square inch of fabric. For example, if a square inch of fabric in a 300-thread count sheet with a standard weave were examined closely, 150 vertical threads and 150 horizontal threads would be counted, for a sum total of 300. The higher the thread count, the softer and smoother the sheets will be. Thread count is an important consideration to take when choosing a new set of sheets, but it should not be used as a sole indicator of quality. Equally important in choosing a bed sheet is the type and quality of the materials used as well as the fabric's weave.

Not only are satin pillowcases beautiful, but they may help your beauty regime.

Look below to learn how to use satin pillowcases.
It is important to find a comfortable skirt to wear to the office that is appropriate yet stylish. Skirts are a staple of any wardrobe; they are also one of the most versatile pieces of clothing and can be worn with sweaters, blouses or jackets. Depending on your office dress code, conservative or casual styles may be appropriate, so choose styles and colors that fit into your existing wardrobe. Wear long skirts for cooler weather. While the most popular women's skirts are hemmed around the knee, cold winter months are a great time to wear longer skirts. Formal long skirts, especially those made of silk or velvet fabric, are probably out of place in the office. Stick to cotton, twill or even wool fabrics for a professional look. Ruffles and pleats can also give long skirts a feminine touch. A-line skirts are the best shape for most women because they create a waistline and widen at the hem, balancing out larger hips. Select flattering skirt sets. To ensure your skirt looks as professional as possible for the office, find a skirt set with an accompanying jacket. You can pair the skirt set with any type blouse, including silk, cotton or polyester. For a clean look, wear a skirt and jacket with a blouse that easily tucks in and does not create a bulge or pull around the skirt waist. You can also pair women's skirts with separate jackets if you want to mix up the wardrobe. Choose a slimming pencil skirt. One of the most common and fashionable skirts to wear is the pencil skirt. It pairs nicely with a variety of blouses, sweaters and jackets, making it a versatile part of the wardrobe. The pencil skirt is flattering to all body types, from very thin to curvaceous women. The skirt's silhouette is straight at the waist and narrows at the knees, allowing it to hug all of the curves of the body. Look for a pencil skirt that has a slit or pleat in the back near the hem to allow for increased movement while walking. Find an appropriate casual skirt. Casual skirts can be professional and dressy enough to wear to work. For the office, look for skirts made of cotton, khaki material, linen or even wool to provide a comfortable option. Keep casual skirts mid-length, allowing them to fall either slightly above or below the knee cap. View All Skirts Back to Guides Directory View All Skirts

Turquoise is valued in many cultures and often used in jewelry and other decorative items. A natural stone, turquoise comes in beautiful shades of blue and green, and each piece is distinct. Although turquoise jewelry is not difficult to clean, because it is a natural stone, turquoise is sensitive to many cleaning chemicals, including soaps.

Cleaning turquoise gemstone jewelry gently and frequently, once a week if worn daily, will help keep the piece looking its best. These tips on cleaning turquoise can protect your gemstone jewelry and ensure that it is always ready to wear.
