Nicholas top and NSF pants from Intermix, Joie sandals, and the Coach ‘Nolita’ Satchel.
I could put on a cool front and act like I’m not super excited about this—and I’ll surely have a more relaxed perspective on promotional posts going forward—but right now, I need to geek out for a moment. The fact that my blog is on anyone’s radar continues to blow my mind, so when I received an email inviting me to participate in Coach’s latest Instagram-driven campaign, I spent a good twenty minutes utterly convinced I was being catfished, or punk’d. Established in 1941, Coach, Inc. is one of the foremost American fashion brands, and it’s among the major labels I’ve been aware of the longest in my fashion-loving lifetime (—anyone who was anyone had a Coach wristlet in the ’00s). The brand always brings the word classic to mind, and while it certainly also stands for American style, what it means to be or look “American” continues to expand constantly. I’m so thrilled to represent Coach, but especially to do so with a not-so-classic hair color.
The ‘Nolita’ Satchel, which I opted for in black, is from Coach’s “Wear Now, Wear Later” collection, and I think that title says it all. Though the bag is part of the brand’s Spring 2015 series, it can easily be styled for any season (and I’ve already carried it every single day since its arrival). In addition, the clean, minimalist design lends itself to outfits both dressy and casual, edgy and classic, and I always value versatility first when it comes to accessories. I absolutely love that it comes with an adjustable, detachable crossbody strap (which you can see on the Coach website), essentially giving me two bags in one. The crossgrain leather adds a subtle texture that gives the bag that extra hint of luxury and uniqueness.
