I was a little late in my summer purse hunting, still enamored with spring. However, one trip to my local Coach outlet store delivered some very satisfying purchases. While the selection was varied and the prices were right (50% the entire store/ 75% off clearance items), one thing to note is that most of the items do not come with dustbags. However, the clerk was nice enough to provide me with boxes in which to keep my purses when they are not in use.
I fell in love with this Sierra pebble leather satchel in azure with silver hardware. Something about it invoked summer - blue skies & white beaches -to me. Plus the aforementioned 75% immediately made up my mind.
This is the perfect size for me - not too big, not too small. It comes with a strap for cross-body wear, with one zippered interior pocket on one side and two open pockets in the other. It's also structured, which I favor nowadays. I just hate bags that droop.
I was about to leave the store when I spied this lone signature satchel in beige coated canvas with chalk leather trim and gold hardware. It was the last one they had and 75% off to boot. Of course I swooped in and snagged it.
