Steamline Luggage has been on my radar for more than a year now after I found it while looking for luxurious, timeless luggage that would be sturdy, photogenic, and unique enough to stand out amongst the crowd. I didn’t want to buy yet another black suitcase that would end up lost in a sea of other black suitcases at the airport. I loved that Steamline Luggage comes in several different colors like red, pink, cream, navy, and a gorgeous deep brown and that the inside of every suitcase had a different print, like botanicals with hummingbirds, navy and white stripes, green palm fronds, birds of paradise flowers, as well as neutrals like this one with sandy brown waves or this one featuring a beautiful bird motif of swallows in flight. After doing more research on the brand and reading online reviews, I knew that I had to take Steamline Luggage with me on my travels!
I selected two sets, the feminine and romantic Sweetheart Luggage that I’m sharing here and the navy & white Entrepreneur that I’ll be sharing with you in a later post. I chose the former because I really felt that it fit my feminine, romantic, and elegant style best, and because the white genuine leather exterior with contrasting nude leather straps and handles would coordinate with whatever travel outfit I decided to wear and stand out at the airport. I also adore hummingbirds (they’re my favorite bird!), and once I saw the hummingbirds and flowers on the inside of the luggage, I was absolutely smitten. The Sweetheart Luggage set includes a Small Hat Box, a 12″ x 8″ x 5″ Vanity Case which features a shoulder strap and handles so it can be used as a purse, vanity bag, or extra bag, a 20″ x 14.5″ x 6.5″ Carryon Luggage, as well as a 24″ x 16″ x 8″ Stowaway Luggage, which is perfect for using as a checked bag. Both the Carryon and the Stowaway Luggage have telescoping handles, wheels, and a top and side handle for easy transportation. Each luggage comes with a ripstop cover, so the white leather isn’t marred by use, a beautiful coordinating luggage tag, a hanging garment bag, and inside zipper pockets, plus 2 TSA-approved locks.
While I have yet to test to drive them on a flight or long road trip, I did bring them up to our family cabin this past week to get a feel for how much I could pack inside, what I liked and disliked about the size and functionality of each piece, and I have to say that I couldn’t have chosen better luggage. I was able to fit 6 sweaters, 2 pairs of jeans, 4 pairs of leggings, 3 undershirts, 2 blouses, a dress and a tee-shirt, a swimsuit, along with pajamas, and enough undergarments to last during our stay, in addition to my makeup bag and curling iron. In the past, I typically found that my massive 32″ suitcases weren’t big enough for week-long trips; having a smaller, daintier suitcase helped me be more mindful of what I was actually packing and prevented me from overpacking.

Steamline Luggage gives me a beautiful feeling of nostalgia. It makes me feel so adventurous, like people who left their homes to travel the world for research and excitement, and I love the sense that I’m walking in the footsteps of other voracious travelers before me. I’m so pleased with my luggage, and I know it will be a wonderful companion for many excursions to come. Keep an eye out for my upcoming travels this year to Japan, the Philippines, Iceland, Scotland, Canada, and beyond – I’m sure you’ll be seeing lots more of my favorite luggage!
