Hell In A Handbag.

Hot Nerd and I celebrated our anniversary not too long ago. A small part of my present from him was this very nice coin/card carrier from COACH.

He got it to match a COACH handbag that I got a while ago as a gift  from my mother in law.

You see, my mother in law thought it would go nicely with the COACH tote that Hot Nerd spent oodles of money on three Christmases ago.

So now, I have me a hot to trot whole set!

Only problem is-

I kinda hate COACH.

To me, it seems like a lot of what they make looks like luggage… or sparkly luggage.

But Hot Nerd spent a lot of money and time looking for that first COACH bag, and I didn’t want to seem ungrateful. So I “ooohed” and “ahhhhhed” appropriately, and I really did appreciate the thought behind it.

But somehow, that led to the whole family believing that I am in love with COACH purses, and not the somewhat colorful ones- the boring ones- because look at me with my whole set!!

Now I can’t help but foresee twenty years of “oooohing” and “ahhhhing” over luxury, lifestyle, hand bags that look like luggage.

This post is truly making me feel like a bad person, but I don’t know how else to stop the madness.

I’m sure I’m going to hell…

in a handbag.

But if I am…

Can it please, please, please, for the love of all that is non-luggage, be an Olivia Harris- Bonded Hobo:

Or if all I need in Hell is my debit card and lip gloss, then a Diane von Furstenberg Evening Bag:

Because if I’m gonna burn for being ungrateful, I at least want the devil to say, “Damn, that bag rocks!”

    Seems like you could start an Etsy store for Coach bags! (And if you sold them all, you might be able to get your Olivia Harris-bonded hobo!!! Good luck with that!

  2. I hate situations like these. You want to be grateful, but at the same time your like “Uh…yeah, I don’t really like Coach that much.”

    Oh, Hot Nerd. He meant well…

  3. Hell in a hand bag via coach. LMAO. Um, you want to unload any of that, let me know. I kinda like the matchy matchy you got going on…

  4. I like Coach but the one I have is black and tiny not luggage looking (*snicker*) like yours.

    Well, sweetie looks like you better fess up or you will certainly be doomed to a life of COACH for every occasion. Maybe drop a statement that you love your set of COACH and now they can start working on a set by…. whomever you want.At least they will know you have all the COACH you need. I got caught on the COACH train too. My husband went crazy COACH for every thing, then he switched to Burberry ( which I liked better) but now I am trying to get him to go in a more trendy yet classy look. I will randomly use photos of things I want a my screen saver. My husband calls it my wishing window.LOL It's had a sweet ass pair of LOUBOUTINS on there for about a month. Apparently, my wishing window is broke because those damn things are yet to appear!LOLI think you should get yourself a wishing window. SO far its worked for diamonds and bags:) It was very sweet of hot nerd and his momma to try and finish out the set for you though.

  6. Oh me too!!! I feel like they hand coach bags out at the preschool. Nothin says mom to more more than a coach logo bag.

    Thankfully my family has ceased and dessisted giving them as a gift.

    This is a great post – I actually have the exact same problem! I have enough Coach to last me a lifetime – in fact, I have the shoes to match your bag! I think it has something to do with Mammoth having a Coach outlet, and my husband's appreciation that I don't bitch at him about my ski widowhood. I don't plan to tell him to stop, it's sweet. I can admire the Cartier from the window on Rodeo ;)

  8. my brother bought me a black coach bag for christmas one year. his wife really wanted one, and i guess when he went to buy hers, he thought i might like one, too.

    the thing is, i'm not a coach fan. i'd rather spend several hundred dollars on a flight to d.c. or california. i like brown bags better than black ones. and i don't really even like purses all that much. i carry a little bitty brown bag i bought from banana republic for like forty bucks. i don't even know the damned word for it. wristlet maybe? it's big enough to stash my cash, cards, keys, phone and sunglasses. that's all i need in a bag.
