  1. Ok, ladies (and gents), let's have a little fun!

    I know we ALL get caught up in the hype of what fall bags we're lusting after, planning PCE purchases, and going through our closets trying to weed out the bags we feel we can live without...

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I'm starting to feel overwhelmed with my collection. Not like I want to part with anything else at the moment, but more like I've got all these fantastic Coach bags stored away up in my closet that I truly, truly will NOT let go, yet they don't get used really, and yet I just want more and more new ones. Now I know alot of us suffer from this sort of insatiable Coach desire, so I'm definitely not alone in my feelings.

    I also realize that it's just not a reality to snap our fingers and buy a new bag every week/month, whatever, even when we really, REALLY want to...so....today I got up in my closet and pulled out a bag I bought last fall. I probably only carried it a handful of times, and haven't used it since I couldn't say when. Once I took this bag out of its dust bag, it was like I fell in love all over again. I might even love it more THIS year than I did when I bought it!!!

    Thought it would be fun to start a thread for those of us who are experiencing this same feeling: forgetting how much you REALLY DO love your almost forgotten about bags! and loving what we've already got.

    This isn't a challenge, like the ones before about wearing a different bag every day. This is just plain and simple: I forgot how much I love this bag! and want to share here.

    Post pics, everyone!

    Here's mine: Hamptons Leather Flap in Raisin :love:

  5. I love this thread emilybug! Great idea! Your Hamptons Flap is beautiful!

    tannedsilk, I love your Ergo Tote...it's gorgeous!
     
  6. LOL...this totally fit me today.
    I was in my purse closet trying to decide what to wear and I picked up my Chambray Highlight. Then I was like, naw...this is way too big.
    But maybe...Blue Jean Spotlight. I have not used this bag but *maybe* once so far this year, and it was earlier this year. But even if I didn't use it for 5 years, I still would never get rid of it, LOL!
    Since I was wearing blue jeans and had a heather gray VS shirt on (that has "PINK" in blue leopard print :graucho: ) I decided to wear it.
    Made me remember why I fell in love with it in the first place.
    It got so much lovely attention that I actually felt embarrassed. LOL! Nothing better to get an SA to come running.

    :love:
