it's a good thing i went at the end of my trip because if i'd had more money, i would have been a certifiable coach slut. i love this bag! not only was it half of what i would have paid at Nordstrom (my best friend bought this bag in tan when it was brand new last year) but i've gotten so much more use out of it than i thought. it's black but not boring, not too slouchy but still casual, works with most outfits and fits a ton. it's not the carly i wanted and couldn't bring myself to save for, but i sure do like it. yay outlets!
