So far for PCE I did a price adjustment on a bag I bought a couple of weeks ago and bought 13064 (pearl/silver 1941 graphic version of the graphite Madison horse and carriage tote I have), a wristlet, and I took the chance and ordered 13481 in photo below.
I have no idea if I will like the Parker pieced leather op art satchel, so I have it set up such that I will return it when I do PCE round 2 next weekend. They were too low on 13064 to wait, so I wanted to make certain I got that bag. If I like the Parker, I will try to find some matching accessories next weekend.
Otherwise, I've decided to purchase one of the LVs from the Sprouse collection (once I make up my mind which one), so I'm going to keep the Coach purchases limited to this and may not participate in next month's PCE.
I have to admit I almost did buy the python Sabrina! However, I don't think it will hold up well just by the design of the bag, and not to mention it won't anywhere near hold its value even at PCE price! It was a huge temptation, though!!
Baglady, which color python sabrina were you considering? I am really trying to decide on a color. I do not live close enough to a boutique that carries them so I can see the colors IRL. Do you think it will scale bad?
Thanks Baglady! Its gorgeous!! I have my shoppiong route planned out for presidents day, last day for PCE, and Im starting at the Coach Outlet in AC. Then Im going to head over to the Gucci store down there and see if I like anything there. Then I am going to swing by the store in Toms River and get something heritage stripe if I dont find anything at the outlets.
I actually think I like coach's knockoff ed hardy better than the actuall ed hardy bags. Their clothes are nice but their bags are too busy for me.
Baglady please post pics of the op art satchel this is the one I wanted also but on the fence of the size so please post for us you allways such great taste there is a rose gold op art wristlet avail in in canvas and pink that would look nice . Please let us know what you think!
Yeah, I just couldn't do it for that price. I do think it's fragile, and TBH this is something I worry about with the oil slick...where it folds on the sides. I have a python Lily, and the it's softer than the printed python, but I could see potential issues. At $3k, and even on PCE, I couldn't make myself do it...I wish I could. I would probably risk it at around the $1500 price and below, but I have no real way of knowing if my fears would be justified. I think my problem is that I feel a $3k Coach bag is a bad investment for me, as much as I love the bag ...it's a personal thing, if that makes sense. If you love it and want it, you should get it!
I personally like the green that's on the website, but why don't you call the Legacy boutique or one of the gallery stores, and I think they will send you photos if they have the bags. That way you can kind of see them at least in photos. I think it all comes down to what color you like and what will work for your wardrobe. DH loves the electric blue, or whatever the color is formally called, and the hot pink is gorgeous too. I also like both of these, but I just prefer the green mix, as it has hues of blue, green, and yellow, rather than a solid color. The only one I'm not feeling is the purple Julianne...the one that was pictured on the website, and it's the same as the flower clutch....purples, blues, and yellows. I'm thinking they sold the one they had at my store too...or I didn't notice it this weekend. They had the others, though. I wish I had known or I would have tried to get the photos for you! Also, I found the bag at one of the gallery stores to be "prettier" than the one I saw this weekend...so the multicolored ones have slight differences.
Of course you're talking about someone who went through about 10 tattersall graffiti bags to get the "perfect" pattern ("perfect" in my eyes, lol!).
What to do you think about the python wallets at PCE price?
Baglady thanx so much I was going to wait until I pick up my oilslick and order the satchel on PCE and the wristlet and the other wristlet the style # 42503 for the wristlet and 42455 for the minio skinny I think it might go because of the rosew gold hardware and the lining is pink at least it looks pink on the satchel. I just bought a lot of grey and pink stuff grey stuff fom jcrew so I think it will go with alot! I cant wait to see your pics! and maybe they will mae a solid colored wallet for this bag !
Heres my PCE wishlist:

Baglady39, I can completely relate... My BF drove me out to the only Dillard's here in N. CA, which is almost a two hour drive each way for me. The shoe dept. in the store was chaotic since some of desinger shoes were on sale for 70% off the orig. price. I was jostled and bumped by the other customers and I was trying my best to protect my new LV Roses Neverfull bag. I only wore the bag that day as I wanted to find a a pair of orange flats or heels that would match the orange color on the bag. Well, my LV bag survived all of the "man handling" but I just couldn't fathom carring a python bag in that situation unless I handed the bag over to my BF and had him sitting/waiting for me away from all of the madness.I was sooo annoyed today at the stores with people bumping into my bag. Honestly, I'm a pretty easygoing person, and yet I had to count to 10 in order not to say something because people are always in such a d*mn hurry and just knock you out of the way like you don't exist ...but...I thought also about how it was probably ridiculous to be THAT concerned over a bag. So, I don't think I would be happy with anything that gets over a certain price partially because of that, and I'm not just a collector that locks something up in a display cabinet. I would want to use it and be reasonably confident I wouldn't destroy it, and that I would get a number of uses out of the bag. However, one thing to remember is that Coach has an excellent warranty. I just don't know what they would consider normal wear and tear vs. a defect with something this delicate. That is sometimes up to human interpretation, and may also depend on the store and how well they know you. TBH, I don't have much experience with exotics. I do love python, but most of my "exotic" stuff is just embossed leather.
