    Default Six months later...

    I joined in April while I was trying to figure out what to buy for my first designer handbag. You all were very helpful. I then got back into RL and forgot to tell you what I got, so here goes.

    I went to Seattle the last weekend of April and had a whirlwind shopping trip. I looked at hundreds of bags. By the end my head was spinning.

    I went to the LV and Coach downtown shops, and the downtown mall stores, and the Seattle Premium Outlet mall. I really wanted something a little more original than Coach, but I liked this bag the best for what it does (holds lots of stuff w/out being a cavern) and it's a good pattern that can be worn year round. I don't have much of a handbag budget (none, actually) so it's got to last awhile.

    I ended up getting the Carly at the Alderwood mall Coach, and the service there was great. The Spade and Coach coin purse, along with a Le Sport Sac pencil case for my inhaler and other medical stuff, and a hard clutch wallet from Wilson Leather I got at the Outlet mall.

    Then, in August I was heading back from Seattle to take my kids up there for Grammy camp, and stopped at the North Bend Outlet to look for clothes and lo and behold, another Coach outlet. So I got this for winter:

    Coach Large Black Leather Book Tote

    I like it. And it didn't break my checkbook. :)

    Now I'm back to tBF, and I'm making a wish list with lots of non-coach items. I just thought I'd let you all know the outcome of my Seattle shopping trip!

    hey swtcaro, next time you come to seattle I totally recommend stopping off at South Center + Bellevue square. They don't have big designers like in Downtown Seattle, but they have alot of different shops definitely worth checking out

    Jennifer,
    Thanks! I haven't been to South Center in forever, but I go to Belle Square almost every time I'm up there. I love it. It doesn't hurt that it's directly across from the Lincoln center, which has the only Container Store for 500 miles. That I'd be close to, anyway.
