New COACH candy from Selfridges
Long-term sufferers of my social channels NAMELY pinterest (the platform of sartorial compulsions) will already be well versed with my infatuation for a quality cross-body.
So let me take you on a COACH trip.
What began as a humble Tumblr pilgrimage – THE most inspiring rite of passage for a blogger yer know? – resulted in multiple cross-body procurements.
*Life before COACH
It’s true, I’ve been launching my
his credit card at various body-props for some time now. Busying myself with the mechanics of internal compartments, stroking leathers like an antique dealer, body-popping against many an extendable strap… in a quest to find THE ONE.
So acquiring buttery ‘pebble-leather’ COACH Crosstown …has well, really hit the spot:
I’m smitten with her gloriously shiny silver-hardware, I’ve found a kindred spirit in her pleasingly chestnut-hued exterior, and can we talk about her sexy turn-lock enclosure?
She’s a box ticker.
A pocket pleaser. A perfect example of WHAT WOMEN WANT.
She’s cute non?
*Life since COACH.
We’ve been inseparable Crosstown Leather Cross-Body and I.
She’s the perfect balance: brimming with sartorial spontenanity yet fulfillingly functional (legit she’s the handbag equivalent of me!). She’s classically compact and yet roomy enough for a beauty hoarder (such as myself). Like a metaphysical tardis; she fits not one, but two iPhones, a charger, an industrial sized bronzing kit and my life-line the tangle teaser.
COACH you did good.
Course, the story doesn’t end here. Now that I’m a self-proclaimed COACH girl, I’ve decided to pop back to
the temple SELFRIDGES and invest in another prop-tote pre-fashion month. Kind of thinking something more exotic and with a handle.. we’ll see.
What’s on your lust-list for designer bags this autumn? Or is this one already in your basket?
