Bag Tag

Question 1: Post a picture of whatever bag you are carrying as of late. No, you cannot go up to your closet and pull out that cute little purse you used back before you had kids. I want to know what you carried today or the last time you left the house.

This is my bag. It’s the Coach Large Zoe bag in Bordeux/Aubergine.

Question 2: I want to know how much it cost :) And this is not to judge. This is for entertainment purposes only. So spill it. And if there is a story to go along with how you obtained it, I’d love to hear it.

This bag cost $398. Yes , I know, that’s crazy. Don’t hate. I wanted this bag from THE SECOND I saw the Coach email releasing it. Yes, I’m on the Coach email distribution list. I drooled of this bag at the store for weeks until I couldn’t stand it any more and bought it To: Me From: Me. I LOVE the color, I know the picture doesn’t do it justice but it’s the color of a deep red wine. I.LOVE.THIS.BAG. Although I do have several other Coach bags this is the ONLY one I have paid full price for, this one is from the Coach store, my other ones are all from the Coach Outlet. The outlet is about 30 mins from my house.

Question 3: What's inside your purse?

My Coach wallet and checkbook. Don’t hate. My boys got these for me as a Christmas present, Hubby assures me they were purchased from the Outlet. My pocket calendar, my phone, my camera (which is not in the picture, b/c I'm using it to take the picture), my measuring tape (that I use daily), my nasal spray (yes it’s an addiction), several tubes of chap stick (also an addiction), tweezers (lighting in my offices' bathroom is better than that at home), my gift card stack (I’m all about the Giant Eagle fuel perks, I buy gift cards on paydays like it’s going out of style. Couldn’t even tell you last time I paid more than .60 a gallon for gas in both SUV’s). Also the standard: hair clip, pens, mirror, tissues, nail clippers, nail file, coupons/shopping list, lotion (Coconut Lime Verbena, my fav), and hand sanitizer (also Coconut Lime Verbena).

Ok, it’s your turn, lets see those bags!

Oh. My. Gosh.
Your bag is FREAKING ADORABLE!! I love it! So cute, and so organized!
This seems like a fun idea- I am going to do it during Joseph's next nap. (I've already wasted too much of this one.. :( )

Comin' at ya from SITS! Cute bag! I love the size.
P.S. I love in your profile how you stated that you were Lutheran and "hope your boys will be too." That just came across as awesome! You're willing to let your boys make their own decisions versus trying to force it. That's the best way! Rock on mamma!

Stopping by from SITS. I've seen that bag in person, and it's worth every penny. I once spent $350. on a Coach bag. I'm now carrying a Vera Wang which surprisingly only cost $45. I also shop at the outlet, which is about 30 minutes from my home too (thank God) I can't help myself, it's like I'm sucked in even if I have no money.

Gorgeous bag - don't apologize! Every hard working mommy deserves a treat! I am also a fan of coconut lime verbena! I'm going to be giving away some soaps/lotions from Bath and Body Works soon and that will be one of the scents! Speaking of giveaways - I actually just stopped by to introduce myself as a brand new SITSa and invite you over to “Two Under Two. Whew!” for my super-fun-and-little-bit-silly giveaways, one of which is tied to our fellow SITSa, BlogBaby! You could win a collection from Tiny Two’s Baby Animals line, or some chocolate covered pretzels! See you around the blogosphere friend!
