I Remember My First...

I remember my first beer Coach bag. I was in 8th grade and had no idea what it meant. Assuming Coach was some magical soccer duffle bag company, I said, "Coach bag? I don't even like sports." Regardless, my best friend and I got matching mini totes.

Needless to say, my fashion choices have matured since my white, nylon Coach bag with pink lettering on the inside. I moved on to Louis Vuitton and never looked back.

Today, I caught myself fighting my inner devils advocate when I uttered the thought, "Is Coach back?". Eeek. I'm cringing as I type this. The Coach brand has lacked any sort of enticement to drive me to even pay attention to them as a brand for a number of years now.  My opinion continues to teeter back and forth, but I can't deny the one impression that now has me questioning my whole presumptuous opinion of the brand.

It all started on my daily commute on the E train. I was jammed in the crowded subway car when I came across the most perfect little red bag. It had 3 zippered compartments, just the right amount of storage, and gorgeous structure, so obviously it was necessary to find out who made it.


Had CĂ©line decided to make a larger version of the trio? If that was the case, I knew there'd be no way I could fit that into my budget right now. So while we stood on the crammed subway cart, I had to ask. I was both underwhelmed and confused that this gorgeous, red bag ended up to be Coach. But regardless of how I feel about the Coach brand, this is literally the most affordable, appealing bag I've seen in years. It's Coach and I'm only kind of ashamed of it.


Are you convinced enough to consider purchasing a Coach bag?
