To all who LOVE LOVE Coach like moi.. I need some expertise! I bought the Coach Scribble Tote yesterday and NOW I'm re-thinking my purchase! I loveddd this bag when I first saw it on the website and kept being drawn to it in the boutique yesterday so I bought it. The sales person warned me it will need a little maintenance as it's WHITE... I've taken it out of the dust bag several times and found lint already... I'm not really the high maintenance type that has a person waiting on her hand and foot...I'm also known for being accident prone and I don't think I can maintain this bag... Should I return it???

The fabric is treated to be stain resistant, but it will get some dirt with use. If you don't think you can maintain it, I say take it back. You'll be too paranoid about getting it dirty to enjoy it. If you like the pattern, how about getting a wristlet or something?

Its a great summer bag. I would just be careful with it. But if you are not feeling it, you may be happier with something else.

I LOVE that bag, but I know it will get super dirty - no matter how careful you are with it! If you are okay with that...keep it. Otherwise, I would return it and (like another TPFer said) get an accessory in that pattern.

I have a small tote from the original scribble line. It's 2 years old and in great shape. If it gets some dirt I just wipe it clean with a baby wipe. I've never scotch guarded it either. I you truly love it, keep it!

I think it is such a cute bag but I agree, bags should inspire joy and not anxiety ! Maybe get a hamptons tote in green or blue or that pear color is really summery !

I had the that bag, wristlet and wallet and after 3 weeks I decided it got too dirty. Also there was a problem with a couple scribble bags that the edges were tearing without major use. Hope this helps in your decision. I sold mine and got my leather Pear set. Which I love!!!!

I agree with those who have said return it. If you're extremely anxious about maintenance, then this bag will probably will just add to that anxiety.

I would probably return it also. I love the scribble but won't buy one for that same reason, at least nothing big. But a wristlet or something small would be cute. Good luck deciding.

I have to agree with everyone else. I love the scarf print stuff, but just can't get it because of how dirty it will get. If you're just going to be paranoid everytime you use it, then you won't enjoy it and will use it less and less until finally it will stay in it's dustbag on the shelf and never come out again.

I agree with what others have said, maybe get a scarf or wristlet in that print so you can at least satisfy your craving for it.

I have the small tote and I love it. If you are planning to use it everyday it will get dirty. This bag is not meant for everyday use.

Get a different bag! There are so many cute ones right now! I wouldn't want to be paranoid 24/7 about it! Like someone else said, the watercolor would be super cute! (I don't know if you like it though).
