This is the Bag – Coach!

And so the handbag search continues…  A big (sarcastic) thank you to Pinterest for posting a picture of a handbag I immediately fell in love with, with no link to the actual purchasing site.  The good news: I eventually found the bag I loved on the Coach website:

Cute right??  The bad news reads this on www.coach.com website – “This product is no longer available. Continue shopping at coach.com.”   Ugh, those dreaded words no shopper wants to read!  Although the jade color didn’t really stick with my universal season color choice of tan/beige/cream – it is such a cute bag!  And there were tons of color choices including beige.  Most times reviews deter you from making a purchase but this was not the case.  I seemed to fall MORE in love with the bag as I read the reviews – “Coach products are timeless. They never go out of style and this bag is conducive to what I need. It’s not too big and it’s not to small. It has the long straps too. I love it when I can securely throw my purse across my body and still have it right at my hip. A compartment for my cell phone is a definite must have. This bag would be a perfect fit to my continuously growing Coach collection” and “I love this bag. So chic looking and the perfect size. I have been looking for a bag like this forever. I got the gray and it will be my go to bag for most of the fall season.”

SO, now what?  I am determined once my choice is decided it will be a real name brand bag – not a knock off so searching on eBay or any other auction site makes me nervous.  When I did my first Google search I found tons of celebrities with the exact bag I wanted.
