The holidays are the most wonderful time of the year! But do you remember the scene from Bridget Jones’ Diary where she is wearing the hideous sweater her mum picked out for her? Well my assumption is this has all happen to you at some point in your life, maybe you were not in your 20’s, but I bet when you were younger, your mom picked something totally fluffy and ‘cute’ for you to wear for the Holiday’s. My mom sure gave me a sweater with Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer on it who was extremely fluffy and happy. How I loved it. But remember back to Bridget Jones – both her and Mark Darcy had to wear just awful sweaters their parents picked out for them. Well I have found the bag to match the outfit.
As much as I usually love Coach, this bag is just a bit much for me and my liking. Not to mention it went over the top with the red Christmas like bow on the front. The Coach Soho Ocelot Demi Flap cries out “Bridge’ should have worn me!” I just can’t look at it and think anything other than it being tacky and over-the-top. The flap handbag is made of imported dyed calf hair with suede and leather trim and the famous Bridget style velvet ribbon with rhinestone details. There is a cute buckle tab with magnetic snap closure which is trying to revive the bag from it’s doom, but I’m not sure it is enough for me. The inside of the flap is lined in satin fabric and there is an inside zip pocket. The dimensions are not overly huge, 9 5/8 (L) x 4 1/2 (H) x 1 3/4 (W), but for Coach the price is exorbitant for something that does not meet up to par- try $498 via Coach. So if you find Bridget on the street, please call out and tell her we have found the *perfect* bag to match her perfect Christmas sweaters!!
