I’m not one to be a brand snob. If I like it, I buy it — or at least, want to buy it!
When it comes to handbags, I especially like to fly under the radar with the types of bags I select. I’m generally partial to lesser known designers, no flashy logos or hardware and simple, clean lines which give a feel of luxury and timelessness, even if the bag was a total bargain. So let me be completely honest when I tell you the last bag I thought I would ever want to add to my collection would be made by COACH.
You know, that classic American heritage brand that’s been around for 75+ years and has probably been a part of every woman’s wardrobe at least once in their lifetime!?
Over the years, COACH has veered in many directions (some, ahem… better than others) when it comes to their collections, but I’m so happy to see their handbag designs head back into the classic territory we all originally fell in love with. I originally noticed the COACH SADDLE BAG 23 while watching the Spring 2016 runway show way back in September. There was something both a bit retro (it was a redesign of the COACH 1972 Classic Pouch Bag!) and modern (the pop of color along the edges!) about it that I liked. Months later, I still
like love it and find myself stalking the style online in all of its iterations and colors. It has that minimalist (almost Celiné-ish) feel to it that totally appeals to me and a price point that can’t be beat.
It finally dawned on me this morning that if I’m still thinking about this bag months later, then this is a style and product that I should be sharing with YOU!
So here we are…

What do YOU think?
Is COACH a brand you’ve stuck with over the years? If not, would you consider a return? I love hearing about brand and consumer psychology — yes, I’m a self admitted nerd — so please share your thoughts in the comments below!
