I'm a newbie to the Coach boards, although I have had quite the collection of Coach bags over the years (many of which I have recylced to new owners through the graces of eBay.) I'm actually carrying LV and Balenciaga these days, but I recently had to make a handful of airplane trips and foresee a few more in the next few months. I typically check my little rolling suitcase, but carry on a purse and a larger bag of some kind for books & magazines, ipod, shawl, healthy snacks, etc. -- things you want with you in the airport and on the plane, but that you can't fit into your purse. The one I'm carrying now is an icky fabric thing that is roomy, but is ripping. I've been noticing the bags that other women carry in airports and have seen some decent-looking Coach totes. Any recommendations? Anything to stay away from? Anything I might find at my friendly Outlet Store? Thanks so much for your advice!
