Dealin' Coachaine

Having a friend who works at Coach (and gets 50% off) is kind of like knowing a high-profile drug dealer. As soon as people find out that I've got this connection, their eyes widen and their voices get low and they start saying things like "Can you hook me up?"

Since basically everything at Coach is over $200 even at half price, the sad truth is I have yet to be hooked up myself. But let me tell you, if I were going to meet my dear Coach dealer in a downtown alley, give her a wad of money disguised in a subtle handshake and mutter "So, you got the stuff?" (can you tell yet that I've never bought drugs?), the stuff I would most want her to pull out of her trenchcoat, my drugs of choice, would be these:

Basic. White. Gorgeous. Love it.

How badass would these be with bright tights and a girly dress?

Right now my wallet is this awesome silver clutch that I got for $5 at an estate sale, and I really like being able to say "Oh this? I got it for $5 at an estate sale" whenever people compliment me on it. "Oh this? I got it for $200 at Coach" definitely doesn't have the same smarmy ring to it, but still, this wallet is gorgeous.

And then there's this. Perhaps I should be ashamed for loving this, but I do. In fact, I love it so much that it makes me want to reenact that one jewelry commercial and run through a flock of pigeons in France screaming "I love this giant suede bag with Jessica-Simpson-a-la-2004 style fringe! I love this bag!" I don't care what anybody says.

And by the way, she's my dealer, so don't get any ideas. But if you make me cookies I'll put in a good word.

Hey, you checked out my blog so I'm checking out yours and I really like it. Your humor is right up my alley. Plus, I make a really mean chocolate chip cookie.

I love me some Coach! Coach has come a long way, especially with their shoes. That white bag is definitely a "Meet me in the alley at 9 with the 'package'" bag. I am holding on to my 2 Coach bags like my life depends on it.

Hey boo,
i'm so getting that striped wallet for myself, it's way cuter in person. and this legacy stuff is going to be in stores all through holiday so yeah, when you come back you know where to go:) Oh! And there's a matching planner too that i've been salivating over.

so...um....can you hook me up? haha...jk...

those are some great picks! I especially love the white purse. I actually know someone who said they can get me 40-50% off, too...I really should reconsider that offer, n'est-ce pas?

:) D

That white bag is hot. And I generally stay far, far away from the coachaine.

So much nicer than the usual Coach stuff... I love them.

Carissa said...

The boots are fantastic, the bag is beautiful too. Have you seen the trench coats they have too? They have one that is ruffly at the bottom; its classic and feminine.

I'd like to see you buy drugs a.k.a Coach, it would be hilarious!

I just went and bought another Coach bag last week, I wish I had your connection though, that would save me big money!
