Here is the first part of the story: Back in August, I ordered Aquamarine haircalf Candace from FOS. I got a great deal, and she is incredibly soft and beautiful. I really did love her. Fast forward to yesterday when I returned her because, since August when I got her, I carried her exactly once. Around my house. Oh sure, I took her out and petted her. I even put all of my stuff in her more than once to use her for real, but it always took it all back out and used a different bag instead. I was terrified to carry her. There was always a chance it might rain, or I was going someplace where she might get dirty for some reason. Or there's the fact that I spill my Starbucks. A lot. And so she languished in her dust bag in my closet. And now the second part of the story: The other day at my outlet when I was returning the Cognac Duffle because I kept Rory instead, I saw the Madison gathered twist leather N/S Satchel in black and picked her up to look at her on me in the mirror. She looked pretty good. I thought I was safe to look at her because I had never really been all that impressed with the style on the Coach website. In fact, I hadn't really liked her at all. Seemed like an odd shape. Long story short (too late!), I didn't sleep well over the weekend for thinking about this satchel. I learned awhile back that if I ever want to sleep decently again, I had better go back and buy that bag. I couldn't afford her though as I've spent far too much on Coach of late. On Sunday night, I packed up haircalf Candace yet again, only to unpack her an hour later and move in to Dark Plume Phoebe instead. And there it was: my answer. I marched into the outlet yesterday morning, returned unused Candace and walked out with Madison gathered twist N/S Satchel. I carried her today, and this bag that I never actually liked is one of my favorite bags. I couldn't stop looking at her, and she made me smile every time I did! She is roomy and her beautiful purple interior fits everything beautifully. She even holds all those student papers with room to spare. I keep marveling at the odd turn of events! How could this bag that never even crossed my radar aside from turning my nose up at her turn out to be so perfect and beautiful?! So here is my question (if you made it this far): What bag do you love like crazy that you never expected to fall for?
