First Coach *happy dance*

  1. On the not so yay! side, I was down in Chicago for a funeral. My cousins' other grandma passed away, but at least it wasn't sudden and they had time to say goodbye. So, even though I didn't really know her well I wanted to be there for my cousins and my aunt.

    But my wonderful dad - new Filemaker Pro book in hand - agreed to a stop at the Aurora outlets on the way back home. The Coach outlet was a zoo. So I went in, looked around, saw a Legacy shoulder flap but wasn't really sure and I didn't see anything else that I wanted. Bought some keychains. Then checked the other outlets (the Dooney & Bourke outlet was not inviting but the Ferragamo store was lovely and the SA was really nice). Then I went to collect dad at the food court and had non-buyers remorse. Did a quick check on my phone (coach.com loads surprisingly well in Opera mini) that this was, indeed, a nice bag.

    So I convinced myself that if it was still there I would get it. And there it was, albeit hiding behind a tote (haha, I saw it first... second! You can't hide it from me :p). I think what was more fun than finding the bag was watching my dad stand there - being lovely and holding my messenger bag - taking in "Saturday at the Coach outlet."

    So now it is mine! All mine! For the low low price of $330. I think that was a fair price; it's rather obviously a boutique return or a floor model because the bottom is very "pre-smooshed". It fits over my shoulder perfectly, even in a big winter coat.

    Hopefully my cruddy camera phone pictures will work. I swear "digital camera" is on the list right under "beautiful handbags" and "Nintendo DS". Maggie and Meeko not included ;)
