Coach handbags, oh how I have a special place in my heart for them. For both Megs and I, our first designer handbags were Coach handbags. Now, as my taste and knowledge of designer handbags has evolved, there have definitely been times when I find myself on the fence looking at Coach bags. The Coach Amanda Satin Mini Satchel is one that I think I would place on the “liking” side of the fence. It is classic, sophisticated and has an ever so slight hint of edge to it. Now, this purse comes in several colors, but I am featuring the “grass” color because, well, it is different. I think I would opt for the double handles as the means to tote the bag around, so luckily the shoulder strap is removable. I don’t always know how I feel about satin bags because to be honest, they can just snag so easily. Yet, here, I like the polysatin with leather trim – the combination works. What do you think – is Coach able to compete with some of your favorite designers? Buy through Nordstrom for $268.

    I’ve seen it in person.

    It’s a lot smaller than you’d think, but the satin is very pretty. The colors are really pretty, but the leather isn’t as nice as it should be.

    I prefer the leather version, but I’d probably get the satin too if I could afford it.

    I love the satin that Coach has out right now. I have one satin Coach bag and I am scared of snags (not to mention it is mostly white!) but I love how it feels. I probably won’t be buying this bag but I hope to collect the accessories! The colors are refreshing for Coach too; I think because they are satin they seem even more concentrated and I like that!

    Can anyone comment on how well the satin is holding up? I have a couple of ‘satin’ bags from Juicy Couture and they’ve done great. Just wondering about the Coach line.
