My Pretty Purse

Finally! Here is my pretty purse! Do you love it? OK, not really. That thing would give me nightmares. Actually, I don't think I could sleep with it sitting on my dresser staring at me. Creepy.

These are much better, don't you think? Left to right - Madison lurex capacity wristlet, Chelsea optic signature satchel, and Heritage stripe signature swingpack. I love Coach handbags. They are made really well, and they look good. Style, quality, what more could you want? How about affordable? I consider Coach to be a designer brand, some may just call it "higher end," and that's OK. But Coach is one of the few designer brands that is a little easier on the pocketbook. There are some Coach styles that are definitely on the rich side, but for the most part, the bags, shoes, and accessories are definitely attainable. Take a little from a few paychecks, look at the clearance section, maybe there is even an extra % off that, or maybe you are lucky enough to live near an outlet. There are lots of options to make it happen. Or be like me, and wait for Christmas and birthday presents!

I love all 3 of bags. My Chelsea satchel was a Christmas gift from my brother. He told me to pick anything out, and as soon as I saw it, I knew it was the one. It is such a classy looking handbag. My wristlet was a "you deserve it" gift from Billy. We were on our way to a Chinese restaurant in the mall and I wanted to "just look" at the Coach stuff. It holds a little wallet, a cellphone, and keys. It's great as a nice clutch for going out to dinner or anytime you're not in the mood to carry a big purse. And my swingpack was a surprise birthday gift from Billy. I had been talking about swingpacks and he picked the pink Heritage stripe out himself. It's so cute and casual. It holds a little bit more than the wristlet and is worn crossbody. Hands free, try it. I have never felt so free while carrying a purse. Love it.

So, that's my little collection. I would love for there to be updates in the future, but after impulsively buying a pair of Coach wedges I'm on a self imposed ban. I do welcome gifts though!

I'm in the market for a new purse. I've got my eye on a 12 dollar diaper bag from Walmart. Unless you give me your swingpack!
