Do you like my new Coach I found today at Loehmann's...OR


Jan 29, 2009
Should I take it back asap and keep looking for another spring/summer new bag?

I got this today at Loehmann's 50% off sale. I was $175.00. I was kinda excited about it, but when I brought it home, my hubby and kids said...ewww, that's not you. I kinda like it. The silver does look kinda funky and it's a nice weight for spring/summer. I just wanted to get your opinion. Is it hot or not to you? Would you keep it or return it tomorrow?

Thanks in advance for your replies!

it looks JUST like this one:

and this one:

They have one on e-Bay which is exactly like mine, with way more pics, but the handles and bottom and straps look like they are cream color, but they are actually silver and the scarf looks beige, but it's actually green. I WISH mine had cream and beige--but alas, it's silver w/ a green scarf:wtf:

It's a okay looking purse, but again, my hubby and kids are giving me the :Push: look. Let me know what you think!

Not a big fan of the silver handles .. I'm just naturally paranoid of metallic on my purses for fear of flaking or fading.
It sucks when the friends/family don't like our pickings.. but I say if you like it, flaunt it! They'll get use to it in time and come around. :P

I'm on the fence on this bag.
It could be a good spring/summer bag, but I'm not sure I'm in LOVE w/ khaki and white combined.

If YOU'RE not in LOVE, put your $175 toward a bag you do love.
$175 isn't chump change!


Ahhhh...I'm falling!

I was looking at one at Holt Renfrew's and hummed and hawed over it for 30 minutes in front of the sales gent--he's such a sweet little Asian cutie pie! I was going to get it but I noticed a small rub off area, apologized to him, and walked away from it.

I waited and got a nice berry one somewhere else.

I have never regretted that decision. Cream is nice too. Just wait and you'll see another one. Or, consider getting one from eBay if you're not near an outlet.

I'd return it because metallics--especially around the handles--gives me the heebie jeebies because it will wear off unless you put on white cotton gloves every time you carry her out and it will probably still rub off.

I say keep that one... Madeline is great, and I love the color you got. This bag really holds a lot and is perfect for all seasons.

I love this style in all leather but I'm not a big fan of the large C's with metallic but if you fell in love with the bag, then keep it! Great price!!!:tup:

When I got my first Madeline, I got some mixed reviews at first too. Its kind of different but that's what is great about it. I prefer the leather (I only own one signature bag so I'm biased) but if you love the signature and don't mind a little flaking, keep it. Its very pretty :tup:
