Most of the Coach bags I purchased were somehow in the brown family, so I guess you could say I was in the "brown box".
However, I suddenly got the urge to start mixing it up and got a few black ones and now have my sights set on POND, for sure.
I guess it is all a matter of what speaks to you. I don't want to buy a bag because of how safe it will be though - I want to buy it because it grabbed me and said, HEY, you gotta buy me! (Unfornuately, I must be the Dr. Dolittle of bags, because that has been happening alot lately!!!)
