So I Bought My 1st Coach Bag!MY VIEWS | Nirasha Jaganath | June 13, 2010 at 9:23 pm
I sucked up all the doubts and I just bought the bag. Well to be clear I walked in the store and walked out and then went back and bought it. I have been waiting for it for a long time. In fact about a year ago I hosted a contest for this very same bag for BlogHer. In fact it was on the way to this conference that my bag woes began, with having 2 bags break on me in a short space of time. In fact I was lucky enough to win a bag at the Aiming Low Party. Although that bag was very sexy and businessy – I could not my camera in it. I do love it though.
Recently I reviewed the Pouchee bag organizer and I lamented my struggle to get a bag I wanted. I have a DSLR – a red sexy Pentax one, but hate carrying 2 bags. Some people get away with carrying several bags, me I just look clumsier than usual. But I needed something that said style, since I am too busy (lazy) to make the effort. So today armed with giftcards I have been saving before which almost paid for half the bag, I got it.
When the lady at the counter asked if I needed a cleaner I worried that man do I need to stress about something else to clean. They they gave me the bag in a fancy bag protector and I began to get nervous as to what I was getting myself into. I asked my two little girls to describe the bag and this is what they said “pretty”, “pink”, “beautiful”, “perfect” – yeah they had the “p” thing going and then “enormous”. I would have minded the last statement but I know that it was 1) true and 2) what I needed.
I feel a mixture of guilt, euphoria and more guilt – at spending on myself. It should be easier than this to splurge on ourself, right?
