She’s here!!!! I’ve been waiting for this bag forever it seems like and yesterday it finally arrived from Satine (I bartered for ad space for the bag). Honestly, I had heard a lot of mixed feelings about this bag, so I went back and forth over would I love it, would I hate it…and I love it. Yes, it’s heavy – I mean if you had studs all over your bottom you’d be too LOL, but it doesn’t seem that much heavier than my Rebecca Minkoff morning after bag – okay, maybe a little heavier. I was worried it’d be hard to get into. It’s not. All of my stuff fits well in there, and fills it up. There’s one zipper pocket inside for my phone and lipglosses AND there are two little hidden pockets on one of the ends. They’re tiny. BUT as I took her out today on her inaugural shopping trip (to Target) I discovered that one of the mini-pockets is PERFECT for my keys. I just stick them in there and pull the zipper up – so easy!! YAY for outside pockets for keys 🙂
Anyway, I was kind of on the fence about posting these outfit pictures because I kept thinking, what am I going to wear with her? how can I possibly find an outfit worth of the coco duffel LOL? I mean, all these models have recently been shot with their Coco’s looking fabulous, and here I am with a t-shirt & jeans…But this is me, this is my outfit, and I decided to post it here for you to see. No, you do not have to be a model to carry this bag, and you can even be OLD. (there’s a lot of discussion going on on a certain message board about how this bag is more appropriate for a woman in her 20’s than 30’s) I, of course, disagree with that COMPLETELY – you can carry whatever you want, whenever you want, at whatever age, just be happy doing it, that’s all anyone cares about – or should. I don’t know, I’m almost 37, can I pull it off???
