Coach Collection!

Happy Friday everyone! It's also the first of June! Can't believe we are almost halfway through 2018.  I just wanted to write a post about my Coach collection. I finally got around to taking photos of it last weekend. There wasn't enough light to take photos of my Athleta and Lululemon orders but enough for some still life shots. I've only started liking Coach again for a little more than a year now. It all started when I saw the Swagger covered in the butterflies. Just so beautiful!  Swagger 21 And then I discovered the 1941 tea rose line and fell in love. The quality of these bags are surprising. They are right up there next to my Chanel, Balenciaga, Gucci. The attention to detail surpasses my expectations from a contemporary designer.  Rogue 25 with Tea Rose   After the Rogue 25 tea rose purchase, I couldn't stop myself and bought a Dinky, watch, and clutch! I think I'm content with my tea rose collection at this point though. 

It's National Handbag Day!

My very first handbag purchase was an Icon bag. Icon is actually famous for their shoes, but I saw this Navigator bag on display at Bloomingdales and had to have it. It cost $400 and it was my gift to myself for graduating college. I thought, man that's expensive for a bag but it's like a work of art! The Navigator Bag by Icon So yes, I still have it in my closet and no I don't use it anymore. Soon after I discovered Balenciaga in 2005 and it's been a on and off love affair ever since. My very first Balenciaga was a pewter first in silver hardware. I wish I still had it. I eventually sold it because it was a little too small for me. Balenciaga Pewter First 2005 Over the years I've gone through tons of Balenciagas. There are a few that I regret selling. If I ever won the lotto, I would probably spend the money searching for the old and rare Balenciaga bags that pop up on eBay every so often. Specifically the ones released in 2001-2005.
