Oh, Coach. This bag reminds me so much of my second “designer” bag, which was of course Coach. So many people talk about how a Coach was their “starter” bag, or how Coach introduced them to the world of designer bags. It is bags like the Coach Bonnie Small-Framed Purse that remind us why we always keep Coach close to our hearts. It’s so many things in such an adorable package.
First of all, it has the practicality, functionality, and great leather that are the hallmarks of Coach handbags, not to mention the signature turnlock closure. Second of all, it’s accessible. It’s a great going out bag for the girl next door who wants to stay casual and not be bogged down by something with beading or sequins. The framed closure top adds a hint of glam- a throwback to the little pouches carried by partygoers in the 20’s, big enough for just the necessities: lipstick, compact mirror, and a bit of money. While this Coach still has that aura, the modernity in the punchy pink or the futuristic gold leather colors (the metallic gold is my leather of choice) ensure that it’ll be just as perfect carrying your cell phone and car keys. See? Practical can look good. Buy through Nordstrom for $258.
