Not sure if all of you know, but my first designer bag ever was the Coach Signature Demi Pouch. This is the bag that started my handbag addiction and the first bag I ever remember truly coveting. I still own this bag (pictured above) and am reminded how a Coach bag changed my life every time I look at it.

Less than two hours ago, we left Coach on Bleecker Street in New York City’s West Village. Fresh off the press (or rather: digital camera), we present to you a detailed preview of Coach’s 2011 Fall Collection of bags and accessories.

For Spring 2011 the Coach Kristin Collection takes center stage in their line and that puts a smile on our face.

Coach is kicking off their Guest Blogger Series with PurseBlog! In the beginning of September we asked for your opinion on the new Coach Madison collection. I wanted to integrate your votes and thoughts into my guest blogger article since your opinions matter both to us and Coach.

Earlier this month we asked for your vote on your favorite bag from the new Coach Madison collection. With over 40% of the total votes, the Coach Gathered Sophia was the overwhelming winner.

Not only was I able to include your voting results in for my guest blog for Coach.com, but also we have teamed up with Coach to giveaway a Coach Gathered Sophia to one lucky winner.

Coach has asked PurseBlog’s Megs to be a guest blogger on coach.com for the month of October. We want to include our PurseBlog readers in guest blogging for Coach by having you help tell us your favorite bag from the upcoming Madison collection.

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.

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.

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 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.
