New Purchase: A Coach Bag

Last Saturday I kind of lost my mind in Westfield Bondi Junction. It was like my feet knew where they were going before my head did and suddenly I found myself in the divine Coach store. Which coincidentally had a sale on. Convenient? I think so!

The sales assistant was absolutely lovely and I complimented her navy nails, she smiled and said they were shellac, and then she complimented my coral jeans. There were smiles all around and I received fantastic service. I think you should be receiving good service everywhere you go, but especially in triple-digits and more-priced stores.
You know it's a nice bag when it comes in its own box. This will also make it easier for me to keep my wardrobe organised.

As a little surprise there was also a swish envelope with a mouse mat in it.
 As you can see, my $29 Ikea desk looks more high-end already thanks to this combination.
After trying on many bags I settled on the Madison Leather Abigail Shoulder Bag. It's a perfect size and I love the neutral colour. I have a thing for tan leather and this is just perfect with a dash of gold. I scrutinized this bag to bits in store and actually found a tear of leather on the back so the sales assistant brought out another bag but the leather was too scruffy. The third bag was just right and in great condition and came home with me. The Abigail bag had been $595 but was reduced to $416.50. It's still not cheap but I am an impulsive person and just fell in love.





I can't wait to start using my bag! I did leave it behind in Coogee beacause Gus likes chewing on things and I wanted to make sure that this beauty does not get eaten by a highly energetic pup.

What have you bought lately? Are you a fan of the tan? Are you impulsive like me?

  2. I love Coach and this purse is great. I got my first coach bag about 6 years ago and it still looks great and its so classic that I know it won't go out of style. Yours looks lovely. Enjoy!

  3. Thats so gorgeous!!! I grimaced at the price, but then realised I also own expensive bags too. But the ones that cost the most are the ones I use the most and have lasted the longest. Except my Dior one that had been used so much the lining is a bit ruined :( I think it's better to buy a more expensive bag that lasts 10 years than a cheap one that lasts only a few months.

    1. Thank you lovely. So did I but then I realised, why not. I'd rather invest neutrally and have it for a long time. Maybe you can get the lining fixed? A Dior bag would be too good to pass up:) X

    1. Thank you. The only way I could justify it was because of an annual leave paid out and I had been diligent in saving money first:) X
