NYC Purchase




Whenever I take a special trip I like to make one big purchase - something that I'll keep forever and whenever I wear it/carry it/look at it I'll always remember that special adventure when I bought it. My recent trip to NYC was no different. I told Michelle on the morning of our shopping outing that I was going to be on the lookout for that one item (among other little things, of course!). My friend Eric who works at the Coach store in Columbus Circle had messaged me to come visit him while I was in town. Little did I know that's where the item would be waiting. What's inside that big orange box?! Read on to see!






Meet my new bag! Just a few items to note - the color is watermelon (I love saying that), those tassels just about kill me, and the big orange box tied up with the white ribbon made me a little bit giddy. The bag is from the Legacy Collection, the Medium Candace Carryall, and I'm smitten. Coach had lost its luster for me for a while when the company was doing all the logo/glitter/blingy stuff, but their Legacy Collection has brought their bags back to the basics and every piece is beautiful. If you're looking for an investment piece, I highly recommend. And if you're in NYC, go buy from my friend Eric!

Good luck going back to work today from the long weekend, friends! xo

Oh my goodness....so gorgeous! I love the idea of a little something to remember a trip by. Also, the fact that this is called "watermelon" makes me so happy!

Loving your bag honey!!! I usually don't like Coach but love this!!! Great way to remember your trip! I noticed you added the "Life and Style blog" to your heading. I just recently did the same thing with my makeover. I think it must be the new buzzword of blogging. I'm curious to see how many blogs will be labeled that this year at LuckyFabb. Have a great week sweetheart!!!

I don't like most Coach bags. This one I love!

Jessica said...

This is gorgeous! Coach really did lose its luster for awhile. I love the Legacy line and the saturated hues.

And I'm a huge fan of buying a special item to commemorate a trip.
