Hi everyone! I just wanted to introduce myself and ask a few questions. I recently became "educated" on the finer handbags and fell in love with Coach. I've read through many pages of this forum which has helped answer a few questions but it has also raised a few more. I'm looking at purchasing my first Coach very soon--my birthday is in March--hint, hint to hubby! Anyhow, I want something on the large size because I'm always running around from event to event for my kids and just throwing a little of everything in my bag to go. I really want leather, preferably in camel/whiskey/tobacco. The first tote that caught my eye was the Gallery, mainly because I like the straps and it's pretty basic so it'll go with most everything I wear season after season. I saw pics on one of the threads that had a tote with braided handles but I don't know the name. That's my biggest downfall right now is not knowing the previous seasons styles and names. I have a Coach store nearby to get a quick fix and see the styles in person but I will probably try to get something at one of the three outlets that would be feasible to travel to. Does anyone have an idea if I could find a leather Gallery tote in an outlet yet? I've seen some gorgeous pics of pond colored wristlets...how 'bout them? My dream first Coach purchase will be the tote, wristlet, and a cute scarf. Possibly a makeup case if I can find one semi-reasonable. ; ) Oh, and how can I forget an adorable little charm?! TIA for any advise and answers you can give this newbie! Sorry it's so long!!!
