Coach Handbags: 5 Stunning Bags

Updated on February 29, 2008

Put in the simplest of terms, I am a Coach 'ho. I lurve me some Coach, doesn't matter what it is. If it's a Coach product, I want it. This is the brand I have been using for more than a decade and I can tell you the quality lasts.

I was surprised to find it's not well-known in Europe -- but believe me, it's fantastic stuff. And it's not nearly as overpriced as what their competitors sell. I'm all about the browns and blacks, but that doesn't mean I don't love the brightly colored stuff. It just means I'll live vicariously through you.

Coach Leigh Pocket Flap

Two things come to mind here: Pink Tuscadero and The Pink Ladies. Either way, I'd say you need balls to sport something this color in public. It's just so... pink. Isn't it? Sure, pink's common enough -- but this is superfied pink. I do love it, all the same, and I'd probably sport it if Santa felt the need to leave one under my tree this Christmas. Love that shoulder strap, love those pockets, and I especially love the size. And hey.. size really does matter.

Cost: $658

Coach Bleeker Leather Duffle

A bit more traditional, and smooth as silk. This is a very sexy bag you could wear with just about anything. It comes in a ton of colors -- I almost used a pic of the green and then started to wonder who would actually wear such a color. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice green..but it's just not a commonly seen color on most women.

Cost: $328

Coach Ombre Clutch

This clutch screams Hook 'Em Horns, which is the (very annoying) motto of Austin, Texas. Notice I didn't just say the University of Texas... that's cos it really has infiltrated everyone in the entire city. I could easily see every sorority chick sporting one of these at Rush time. That aside, I do like it.

Cost: $350

Coach Legacy Bag

This is probably the most me. While I dress primarily in black, my handbags tend to be this color, or slightly darker. I like the natural look, and this definitely falls into that category. It's also a bit retro -- slightly 70s in style, which I love. The buckles, the clasp, the strap; all of it looks like it just walked off the Charlie's Angels set. What's not to love?

Cost: $448

Coach Gigi Spectator Tote

This is, perhaps, the classiest Coach bag I've ever seen. Of course, being white it's also the one of the easiest to get dirty, which doesn't look classy unless slung over the shoulder of some Hollywood starlett with greasy blonde hair, sunken eyes and lots of ribs showing. That's when it really looks hip and trendy! All the same.. I'd gladly take one of these if Santa was passing them out.

Cost: $658

      I love the Bleeker bag. The Gigi Spectator is cool too, very mod! All of these are nicer looking than the Prada bags and for about 1/4 the cost. I could probably justify treating myself to a $300 handbag, I think *g*

      My true love though is Burberry. I'd really kill to have one of the Burberry plaid handbags.

      Coach f*cking rules! I have a coach wallet and a coach briefcase. I've had them for ten years. i think they'll both last for the duration.
