I had to work in the office of my daughters religion class this evening as part of a parent volunteer program. One of the ladies who runs the program came over to me after a few minutes and said "Oh my - I look at that bag your are wearing every time I go into the Coach store. Its so beautiful but I just couldnt spend that much money on a color that is "the latest thing" for this year." I was like . First off, its the burnt orange satchel which isnt in the stores yet, but she was probably referring the the "new" rose color that is out as its kind of orange-y too. Second, was that a compliment on the bag, or an insult that I spent too much $$ on a trendy bag? I am so not a trendy person! What I said was "well, most of my wardrobe consists of various shades of black/gray/brown, so I thought a pop of color would do me good. I really dont see it as a trendy color, more of a classic neutral with a twist." Then she said "oh, hmm, I never thought of it that way!" I wasnt mad - just amused! I LOVE my bag SO much that I'll take any reason to talk about it, compliment or not!
