Travel in Style with the Bag That's Perfectly Functional & Totally Hip!
I’m a girl who likes to travel – in style, of course. Whenever there’s a trip coming up, be it a weekend getaway or a jaunt overseas, one thing can be certain: I want to look good while on vacation. What girl doesn’t? That’s where the problem arises: there are certain products that I can’t live without – shampoos, sprays, lotions, and other beauty essentials that just don’t come in travel sizes.
For the past 20 years, Shannon Green had the same dilemma. A business traveler for 20 years, Shannon had searched everywhere for the perfect travel case, and had become frustrated with the lack of hip, functional bags on the market. She decided to take matters into her own hands, and built her own. Thus, the Richlee Bag was born.
The Birth of Richlee Bags
“I feel the Richlee Bag is quite simply, the most perfect travel bag any women will ever own! A travel bag that is as hip as it is functional, designed especially for the female traveler,” says Shannon, whose success has been nothing short of phenomenal. Previously working in the corporate real estate world, Shannon created Richlee Bags (named in honor of her late brother, Richard Lee Green) out of sheer necessity, as she could never find a travel bag which suited her desire to travel with her favorite beauty products. Shannon has enabled women travelers to not only look good, but feel good as well, because a portion of Richlee Bag proceeds are donated to families of suicide victims.
The Richlee Collection
From first glance, you can tell the Richlee Travel Case is well-built and sturdy. The case itself is made with a synthetic fabric for long life, and the inside is lined to contain any spillage and makes cleaning up easy. Upon opening the case, you’ll find that it’s very roomy, with handy adjustable straps and pockets for storing all your full-sized brushes and other beauty essentials. All this convenience comes in quite a stylish package.
Shannon attended a university in Paris, and the French influence helped her design a stylish product that comes complete with jeweled tiara zipper pulls, imprinted Richlee logos, and a removable name tag for travel. Richlee Bags also come in a variety of colors; true fashionistas will love the Richlee Travel Case in Chocolate and Baby Pink, while others may prefer the chic Travel Case in Textured Black. No matter what color you choose, it’s sure to be fab – Richlee Travel Cases come with a matching makeup and accessory bag to ensure that you travel beautifully.
DivaVillage Loves Richlee Travel Bags
After years of jamming full-sized hair products into plastic bags or giant ziplock bags, fearful and praying that none of my lotions and shampoos would spill out into the rest of my luggage, I can thank the girly gods – in this case, Shannon Green – for creating a product that allows me to travel practically and in style. The Richlee Travel Case fits perfectly into luggage, and takes away the horrible indecision of what to products to bring along and leave behind while traveling. My next vacation isn’t for another couple of months, but with the help of Richlee bags, I already know that it – and I – will be traveling securely and in style!
