I had a bit of a conniption over Coach’s heavy-handed use of gold sequins a few months ago, but now my eyes have been opened and all has been forgiven. On the department store shelves where that awful bag once sat, we now have surprisingly beautiful blue concoctions like the Coach Poppy Sequin Disco Bag.
I really want to dislike this bag and the others in the same color, but I just can’t. I’ve seen them repeatedly at various shops, and I find myself drawn to the deep blue color over and over again. When sequins are employed judiciously and in regal, sophisticated colors, there’s no reason they can’t be beautiful, even from a brand that many people dismiss as juvenile. The way that these blue bags in particular sparkle and catch the light is massively appealing in person, so much so that I can barely remember that whole gold sequin mistake. Buy through Nordstrom for $148.
