c is for coach

I can't even remember when I first learned about the infamous brand Coach, but I've loved it and always will love it. I went down to the States with my parents the other weekend and - what a surprise - the Coach Factory outlet was having a sale! I purchased a gorgeous patent leather tote with signature C's, but the letters aren't in-your-face noticeable, which is exactly what I was looking for. With my new bag on my arm, I decided to mix in a little of my personal style with this post! A few years back I purchased these incredible Coach wedges with bows, and my envelope satchel has been so trusty. It's perfect to wear on those days when you don't want to deal with carrying a big bag, and the over-the-shoulder look is definitely back in style. I paired my Coach attire with a beige trench from Sirens (a total steal, $25) and a gray longsleeved cotton dress from H&M (about $30) with a Calvin Klein belt, a gift from my mom. I can't wait for the weather to warm up even more so I can finally leave the house without tights!


The best thing about Coach is that although it is a luxury designer brand, it's not that expensive! Especially at the outlet factories. My tote was $111, and my shoes were $120 - the envelope purse was only $45! If you do shop at the actual store (Metrotown, Downtown) I've picked out some amazing styles that I'm sadly in love with, but my bank account refuses. The new Kristen Leather Hobo ($298), Canvas Wheel-Away Suitcase ($648) and the Amanda Gold Watch ($298). I will admit that this brand can be at times 'tacky' with the Signature collection of C's, but the understated leather bags and amazing accessories are swoon worthy.

From the Coach Leatherware spring lookbook - this colour is to die for! Perfect addition to any outfit. I hope you all have a chance to own one of these amazing handbags!
