Most of the shock value of Coach releasing a bag with a four-figure price tag wore off years ago, but the disparity between the prices of the Coach Madison Calf Hair Brynne Satchel and the Coach Madison Ocelot Sabrina Satchel truly caught be off guard.

The Brynne, left, is made of printed calf hair with leather trim and is 14 inches wide.

We have been lamenting over attempting to find the perfect beach bag. Do you spend $50 or $500, do you get a designer bag or kick-around-bag? It comes down to personal preference and what kind of use the handbag in question will get. What I advise is buying a bag that is in your comfort zone price wise and will perform the task you are looking for.

We keep talking about spring trends in handbags, clearly there are many. We have brought you stories on denim and perforated leather, and today I will tell you about another trend; floral patterns. Typically we would cover this Coach bag on PurseBlog Savvy, but I actually wanted to feature this on PurseBlog.

Coach bags receive quite a bit of flack from many handbag enthusiasts.

Coach Zebra Brooke

When we were part of the Coach Holiday Program one of the three bags we picked was the Coach Brooke. The Brooke is a favorite of mine, an elegant everyday shape that Coach continues to find a way to change up. While the crackled metallic caught my eye, so too does the Coach Zebra Brooke.

Coach Kristin Preview

One of the most well-known brands in the handbag world is Coach. Both men and women recognize the Coach logo and millions continue to support Coach bags season after season. Established in 1941 as a family run workshop in Manhattan, Coach quickly became renown not only for their style but also quality. With an expanding company and product line, we continue to expect and be given innovative lines and multiple collections every season.

We don’t talk a lot about Coach handbags on this blog, and maybe that’s an oversight on our part. What better way to start correcting it, then, than by talking about the line of bags named after yours truly (ok, well, they’re not necessarily named after me. But I came first. So there.)? The Amanda Satin Mini Satchel is, by my standards at least, kinda cute.

Call me idealistic, but I love when I hear that co-stars on screen get along and hang out off screen. I have no problem admitting that I love reading gossip mags and searching through photos of celebs. Call it my guilty pleasure, but it is one of the things I do when I have some free time. So, although Blake Lively and Leighton Messter are rivals on screen, apparently they do in fact get along off screen.

Mandy Moore with Coach Ergo ToteOne of the biggest celebrity fans of Coach handbags is Mandy Moore. The casual appeal of many Coach bags is perfect for Mandy’s style and she constantly opts for their exotic line of bags. Most recently Mandy Moore has been spotted toting the hard to find Coach Ergo Convertible Tote, which can be carried hand held or over the shoulder with the removable shoulder strap.
