    Default Coach bag for my 16 yr old cousin

    So apparently my cousin and her friends in Florida are OBSESSED with Coach. My cousin is 15 and turning 16 in December. As a gift - I wanted to get her a cute Coach bag. I'm trying to figure out what she would like and I can't!! I have a friend who works for Coach and will get me 50% off retail on anything so it's not like money is a huge issue - but I also don't want to get her a $500 bag that she'll probably trash anyway. Hah.

    Any suggestions?

    So they work at a Coach store? I was told that you get 40% off "coupons" that you can use... but then you are limited on the number of things you can buy in a month's time. I remember a girl talking about it on another forum. She was hired on as a temp worker for black friday and then the rest of x-mas shopping season.

    Hmm... most of the 16 year olds I see around here are carrying cheap canvas bags from AE and Holister... hehe... or Dooney.
    What about something simple and not too expensive?

    The Soho Sig Small Hobo is cute for a younger girl... and it hugs the body like some of those canvas bags I've seen. It's only $198.

    no - she's a product developer at Coach. she works at the headquaters. she's friends with a girl i worked with who also used to work at Coach doing product development. it's a benefit of working in the fashion industry. hah. networking is good for all sorts of things!

    ya i don't want to get her suede because even *i* manage to ruin my suede things. it's just too delicate for a 16 yr old. i'm thinking if she gets a canvas one - she'll pee her pants! haha. i mean she was freaking out over just the perfume because it was the Coach brand... silly silly. but then again - my grandma bought me my first LV bag at 16 so who am i to talk? i still have it and cherish it to this day.

    Yeah for a 16 year old, Im sure suede would be hard to keep managed. I remember when I was 17 I had a coach bag with suede trim - It got a pen mark on it and i tried wiping it down with water and it wasnt soft anymore and it was darker... yikes I had no idea what I was doing.

    I vote for the bag Ann posted. Or any of the bags from the Carly line

    I think its also better to get her something like in a dark color, so if she accidentally did something to it, it won't be that noticeable.

    I'm around her age, and I recommend either a tote so she could carry books in (signature stripe collection), or a small cute bag. :]
