I was greeted by a giant orange box of Coach goodies as soon as I got back in Manila, and I couldn’t think of a more fitting way to cap off my glorious trip to America than to wear an iconic brand that I’ve always been a fan of. I can’t remember how many times my mom and I muttered audible oohs and aahs whenever we passed by a Coach store in New York. Too much pretty. Karlie Kloss and Liu Wen make all their clothes, shoes and luxury bags look so covetable too.
My mom and I already share 3 existing Coach bags at the moment, and I think that it would never, ever hurt to add another one to the collection. As a practical dresser, I am especially grateful for this boxy black bag from their latest Holiday 2013 collection because it can fit everything! I tend to stuff a lot of random things in my bags so I always prefer functional designs.
On the other hand, I picked the sweater out simply for the lovely turtleneck, the skirt for the bright Christmas color that perfectly matched my red hair and our Christmas tree, and the shoes for the pointy toes and those fabulous, understated gold details on the heels. Less is more, especially when the quality is this good.
