Happy Hump Day! 

A short hand-bag story… 

I’ve been having this bag on my wish-list for a while now.  All of my cross-body bags are small (great excuse to get a new bag, eh?).  I fell in love with the shape and size, perfect mid size bag.  It can be worn with dressy or casual outfits and as a cross body bag. A complete must! 

 I stumbled upon this Coach bag, at the outlet (which I never go to for some reason),  and immediately fell in love. It looks very similar to the KS bag, but it feels a bit nicer, it costs a bit less and I actually like it a lot better. 

The only problem was that I couldn’t decided between pink and red. Both colors are gorgeous. And since the outlet is not that close to me, I decide to get both…no regrets that way, right!?!  

So I decided to keep the pink one…and now the red one is waiting to be returned (now that’s my least favorite part).  I’m seriously the worst when it comes to returning stuff. 

Please tell me I’m not the only one??

    I LOVE that bag! The pink was a great choice! Red is great but it's harder to find the perfect pink bag. I return stuff all the time. If it is in my closet for more than a week and I haven't thought about how to style it or I am not excited to wear it, away it goes! Great look!Marianne http://www.goodgirlgoneglam.com

    Completely agree with your color choice – loving the pink! I'm guilty of the overbuy/ return later not only in my closet, but for our house. I think I bought 5 shower curtains before finally keeping one for our guest bath. My husband starts rolling his eyes even before the latest shopping bag hits the floor.Cheers!-MicheleThe Salty Hanger

    I like this look a lot Lilly! Perfect for the office. Love that jacket…swoon…Also, you inspired me to go get the sweaters from J Crew. I love them! So soft…And then of course while I was there I had to pick up a popping lime green pencil skirt to match my new turquoise sweater! ๐Ÿ™‚

    You should keep both. Really, I mean you deserve them both. You have a lot of great bags. Do you sell them when you are "done" with them? I rotate a lot of my bags, but I don't have nearly as many as you – just wondering ๐Ÿ™‚

      Haha, thanks. Not sure if I'd like having two exact bags but in different colors. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I haven't sold any of my bags, yet. I will be cleaning out my closet any day, so I might sell a couple.
