Coach Bag!

So I ended up getting two surprises this weekend instead of one.

First and foremost, the Coach bag I mentioned last week. I spent a full day in my parents' house, walking around this big shopping bag emblazoned with Coach symbols, waiting for dinner to come so I could dig into it. My mother didn't even bother wrapping it- she knew I wouldn't notice.

I just tried to take pictures of it in the fading light of my apartment:

 

While my enthusiasm probably seems a bit silly to veterans of fashion, this is definitely a big step for me. While I have many fun, quirky, trendy purses, the most expensive purse I had ever owned before this was a canvas patterned thing from PacSun. In college. $40.


Think about that.

 

The inside lining has a really fun colorful stripe pattern, but my camera refused to take a nice photo.

 

Here's me running around with it on Valentine's Day. I didn't fully love this outfit, just threw it together. I'm also holding the fun scarf I got with the purse- usually it's tied around a strap.

 

My other big surprise was actually so fun it distracted me from my new purse for a bit. This weekend I wandered into a T-Mobile store to scope a new phone and phone plan. My AT&T contract is up at the end of the month, and while I've always been happy with them, T-Mobile was a cheaper option for me. Long story short, the salesmen were really, really good. I went in to collect information, and left with a 2 year contract and a new MyTouch phone.


My phone story is similar to my purse story- I've only ever had cheapie phones, or semi-cool but still budget friendly phones. This beast is the nicest thing T-Mobile sells, and I am obsessed with it. It is not uncommon to see me checking my websites on my phone while still sitting in front of a perfectly good computer. Never before have I had a phone that people actually admire.

I'm pretty geeked, and this is one of the few places I don't feel like I have to apologize for getting cool stuff. Thanks for being here to absorb some of my excitement!

  3. The bag is beautiful! I know what it's like to have a closet that isn't full of designers - the most I've ever paid for a bag is $60 and that was a big splurge!

    You look so happy holding your bag~ I really like the floral and striped pattern combination, I want to try that now.

    Oh man....smart phones will be the end of productivity as we know it. I waste so much time on my iPhone!

  4. Oh the bag is gorgeous! And seriously, if you take good care if it, it will last forever! That is why I swear by my Coach bags. Guys make comments like they don't believe that a coach bag is any better than a bag from target, but the quality is sooo amazing, it makes it worth it. I am currently obsessed with anything patent leather from coach :)

  5. Beautiful bag! It's really worth it buying a couple of "proper" bags. I paid £60 for a brown leather buckled one from Kookai back in my impoverished student days and it's still going strong.

  6. Love the bag! I literally destroy all of my bags and shoes so I always buy super cheap, but maybe if I bought something more expensive I'd be more apt to take care of them! :)

  8. It's cute! The most I have ever spent on a purse is my tan Kathy Van Z (you probably remember it) - It was like $90 but it lasted me throughout college- 5 years!
