Unlocking the mystery of my relationship with my new-found love

Growing up, I never really had a love for handbags. I always thought they were extra weight or simply cumbersome. Every other woman I saw was carrying around this extra luggage that went with every outfit. Be it black or brown. But as I got older and started observing the different fashion trends, my thoughts changed. I wanted a bag to go with every outfit and from then on, my collection started.

“Should I really buy this?” I asked myself as I walked into every store that had a COACH bag displayed in the showcase. The classy piece caught my attention. I was giving myself the approval to just be comfortable getting something practical and functional is what I told myself, but it charmed me, this was it. I had to have it. The bag with a touch of class. I didn't even think about the price. I just kept thinking I had to have it.

This bag made me feel conventional. I was now able to get this BRANDED piece. All my other bags were nice and were fitting for every outfit but this one topped them all. It's the bag for every occasion. I could call it my transitioning piece, too. It's very functional. This bag transitions from corporate into casual, then classy. As it stands now, I am on the hunt for a new piece. COACH, my preferred brand… care to ride along?
