friday porn

so i have a lot of thoughts to share on Monday... i've seen some things lately around various social mediums (in which i participate to keep myself intellectually sane but, ironically...) that drove me batty and just plain rubbed me the wrong way.  and that wrong-rub became an itch, and as itches often do, those nagging thoughts just grew bigger and itchier and uglier. so Monday = Scratch Day!  tune in!

{how's that for a weekend cliffhanger?  its really just all a big ploy... Analytics charts, get ready for a boost!}

{i kid}

{maybe}

{no, really, i'm kidding}

{let's look at pretty things now, shall we?}

so i used to be a bit of a Coach Bag Whore.  the summer before i studied in Spain, i worked as a counselor at a day camp for gifted children (which, sadly, does not necessarily equate to "clean, well-behaved, and polite children," fyi) and i remember blowing a large portion of my paycheck (which was meant to be saved for European Spending Money) on a purple and brown hobo-style purse.  Jan was so not happy. i, however, was stylin'.   anyhoo, times passes, tastes change and its been probably two years since i've even stepped foot in a Coach store (although i carry two of their classic, un-logo-ed leather bags all the time, along with some great jewelry and my favorite pair of summer sandals). but...

BUT!

check out these goodies i spied online last week!  Coach, you've made it through the Prelims - you may make my Official Christmas List '09 yet!














i need a jaunty beret, right?  for tossing?




i think the answer is YES.  that should be a working-gal staple.  Coach and i shall make it so.

Happy Friday!

  1. I have a few traditional all-leather items from coach. Two items I received as gifts & I'm obsessed with the blue patent wallet The Rose Family gave me for my bday last year. NO C's for me either. Not my thing! I browsed Coach last week too & found a few pieces of jewelry that I would like to add to my collection. From your list, the wedges are a must-have for Winter!
    Great post - can't wait to read of Monday.

  6. I feel the same way about coach, but i do like the non-logo stuff.

    Those booties are fan-freakin-tastic. And I'm not a bootie fan. (My legs are tree trunks so I can't wear them)

    But those booties are GORGEOUS.

  14. I've never been a Coach fan (sorry laday) but I'll admit that their recent ads in magazines have definitely made my head snap. THOSE SHOES!

    My problem is that we have a Coach Outlet in my town...and so it's "THE BRAND" of bag to carry around here. I've always liked things that are a bit different, off the beaten path I suppose. But maybe I'll have to go look at those fantastic little flats...
