I don't have a lurex bag, but many lurex acessories... they are pretty sturdy, the lurex "shine" is sown in threads and looks very cute. I think it's sturdier than the coach signature fabric, but i may be wrong about that, i m not 100% sure.
Just got my first lurex BAG today for $65 at the outlet! I have been LUSTING over this bag since it hit Coach.com...for $328! HA! I also already own alot of lurex accossories and love them all! I'll post a reveal later! I now have a new matching set! YEAH!!! Can you even imagine the Zoe in the larger C lrex siggy...totally TDF if that's what they are doing! I bet it is!!! These lurex items were flying out of my outlet by the armloads! The gal behind me in line had about 4-5 bags...cosmetic pouches, mini's, capacity writslets! You name it she had it! Funny, I didn't get the feeling she was an ebay seller though!
