So I received my RED patent Ergo Tote last Friday and my POND Patent Ergo Hobo today. (I've posted many photos of both if you're curious and haven't seen them.) Well, my RED tote just makes me smile every time I look at her. Red is my fav color and she is the perfect shade and the gloss from the patent is gorgeous! The POND is an absolutely stunning color and this one caused me to gasp when I opened the box this morning. I just showed my D(amn)H the pond hobo and he tells me "those purses look like they're plastic". WTH?!? I don't buy Coach for the name itself but b/c I know they are excellent quality at a price I can afford. I walk around proudly b/c my bags are functional, stylish, pretty and well made. And I've been so thrilled with my new ergo tote this past week that I've been strutting around like a peacock! To think that someone might have thought my red patent tote is PLASTIC?:cry: The idea breaks my heart. Overly dramatic rant, I know. I just had to share and hopefully I'll get a few replies stating that there is NO WAY anyone could mistake these beauties as plastic.
