First I just have to say that this forum is just a bad influence on me and I signed up just a few days ago!! I just want to get all things Coach, even more than usual, because of all the gorgeous bags that everyone has been posting about on here. I stopped my the Coach outlet yesterday just randomly to see if they had something random that I would want. I had stopped by a few weeks ago but they didn't have anything at all that I wanted, that was disappointing! Anyway, I saw that they had the hobos with the snakeskin trim on them and I just needed it! They had a few white and just one black one so I snatched up the black hobo as soon as I saw it! I remember seeing this bag in the summer and I loved them until I saw the price. I think it retailed for about $800, meaning here in Hawaii it had actually been going for $928, so when I saw it for $200ish I just HAD to have it! I know some of you have said you don't like snakeskin but I am in love with this bag! !
