I left my apartment no less than five minutes before receiving the first of many compliments on my new Coach Legacy Perforated Penny bag.  So, I just had to turn my new purchase into a pretty handbag illustration.

Honestly – I never thought much of Coach.  To me, the brand evoked images of over monogrammed jacquards or mean girls in high school.

This was challenged a year ago when my coworker boasted the condition of her five-year-old satchel.  She said “old” Coach bags had heritage, quality, and classic design.  The conversation stayed in the back of my mind…

Believe it or not – soon after, I saw of ads for Coach’s Legacy line.  Clean, classic, quality and under-the-radar branding – yes! (I fell in love with, and bought, the Candace Carryall – here.)

When I began thinking about my trip to Hong Kong and I really wanted a good cross-body bag.  I scoured the web for weeks.  Finally, I turned to the place I knew I’d find an answer: Facebook – where my friends made a bunch of great cross-body bag suggestions.  Ultimately, I was again directed me to the Coach Legacy line.

I freaking love this Penny bag.  It fits your phone, keys, a small wallet (or card holder), a pen and a (very) small notebook.  It’s going to be perfect for my trip!  I can’t get enough of the bold colors, the pop tassel, and especially the perforated leather.

For now, this watermelon color way is online only.  But, if you want to go to the store, they will order and ship it to your house for free.  So there, I’m officially a Coach convert!

PS. Guys, I hear this is a pretty coveted Valentine’s Day gift.  Hint, hint. (;
