My coworkers would laugh at me because my idea of a designer handbag was one of those reusable grocery bags. I never had purses or handbags and did not understand why the women in my office loved them so much. That was until they talked my husband into buying me my first Coach handbag for Christmas. I fell in love with designer handbags but my Coach handbags are by far my favorite. I cannot wait each season for the new Coach styles to be released to pick my favorite and start saving to buy it. I use Coach Handbags 101 to keep up with news about the new handbags. It was difficult to choose my top three 2010 Coach bags because I had quite a few beautiful handbags to choose from this year.
The Poppy Collection by Coach is probably my favorite for 2010. There is such a large collection of gorgeous handbags in fantastic colors. I chose the New Poppy Tartan Glam Tote ($198) because I like the rich purple with silver accents. It has a zip-top closure to keep my many necessities from spilling out and an inside zip pocket and cell phone compartment. It is the perfect size for the weekend!
The Kristin Collection by Coach is another one of my favorite collections. These handbags add some funk to my wardrobe with a classic touch. I have already added the Kristin Studded Leather Pleated Satchel ($598) in boysenberry to my holiday wish list. This limited edition Coach handbag has a detachable shoulder strap and zipper top closure. The crackled metallic leather and antique nickel studding is a perfect combination of urbanity and style. This Coach satchel will be a perfect accessory this fall and winter.
The New Mia Inlaid C Tote by Coach ($398) is an updated classic that may be simple but takes simple to the highest pinnacle of class. A mix of leather and suede with pearlized trim, this tote will add a beautiful touch to any outfit.
There is always one Coach handbag that I have on my wish list that I know, short of winning the lottery, I will probably never be able to afford. However, it is better to at least have hope than to never have a goal. This year it is the Poppy Embossed Exotic XL Spotlight ($798). Soft calfskin leather and glazed metallic accents with embossing that is superior to anything I have seen from Coach. This handbag is my number one favorite for 2010 and will be what I put on my letter to Santa this year – – I hope I have been an extra good girl.
