Coach handbags? Nah. Not my cup of tea, or so I said. Why, its so common, so ubiquitous, so unimaginative, and so cheap. In my quest for a brown bag that leaned towards the more casual side, I typed in whiskey in my search on eBay. Up popped up one of the most gorgeous handbags I have ever seen; the Coach Mandy. Constructed of beautiful whiskey colored leather that looked (in the photos) to be of high quality, and accented with very substantial looking brass hardware, this bag was dazzling. Two pockets adorned the front, and a big slip pocket on the back excited me immensely, as it not something I see too often. An adjustable shoulder strap sealed the deal for me, as I could see myself wearing this everyday for all kinds of occasions. (And by the way, it wasnt cheap at all, it cost $475 on eBay and I think about $700 retail) I just received the bag this morning, and I am in a quiet and contemplative mood. I love this bag, I love everything about it! The quality is unbelievable, it is just incredible! Honestly, in comparison to the a lot of the other bags I own, the quality of the Coach Mandy blows them right out of the water. I just dont understand why I was so adamantly "UGH" about Coach before. I need support! This bag has really opened my eyes. Its as if I was bag-prejudiced before (Go ahead and laugh! but I was) and this bag has just rocked my world. Please share with me your thoughts.
