Oh, the irony! My sweet sister gifted me what has turned out to be my perfect bag, and Coach hasn’t repeated the silhouette. I don’t know that I can carry it once fall become official this weekend, and I’m a little worked up about it.
Yeah, I know I *COULD* just carry it, and some of you will think I’m silly for not carrying on with a great bag that just happens to be in lighter colors that *I* associate with spring and summer. Call me old fashioned and a slave to outdated rules, but I don’t feel comfortable carrying this bag year ’round.
I do have my plaid tote, and I’ll likely return to it, but I’ll miss this bag. It’s a little taller, a little lighter in weight and it’s just been ideal. Evidently, I was looking for a modern Mary Poppins bag, that could manage my regular purse gear and not strain when I add an iPad, a bottle of wine and more.
Another thing I love about this bag that the reliable plaid tote lacks is that zipper across the top. Granted, I rarely zip this bag shut, but when I need to, it’s an option I appreciate.
And those straps are perfect. I’m really, REALLY sad that Coach didn’t offer the same bag in maybe a buttery, toffee-colored leather, or something fallish in fabric.
Do let me know if you see something similar, will you?
