Spring's in the bag

Oh, I am so exhausted. Even my Cinnamon Dolce Latte can't save me today. I guess that's what happens when you stay up till 3 a.m. to finish writing a story and then wake up at 7:30 to get back to work! So excuse me for my fluff post today, it's requires all the brain power I can muster at the moment, but I am sure Coach handbag lovers will enjoy...

In between running to the police station to do the blotter, checking out the sign at a local night club and then coming back home to email my editor little tidbits/facts/quotes to add to my stories, I managed to find time this morning to pay my due-today Victoria's Secret bill. (If I haven't told you already, I can be pretty bad at paying my bills on time and often am doing it the day they are due).

As I was walking through the mall to Vickie's, I spied this gorgeous yellow leather bag at my favorite expensive store, Coach. It immediately conjured up thoughts of spring, sunny days and smiles.

I give you, for your viewing enjoyment, the new Parker Leather Large Convertible Hippie, which retails for a hefty $358 (That's about the same as my last-last-last season Holiday Patchwork that I carry religiously. Luckily, I didn't fork out that money-- my ex did.)

A classic, go-everywhere carryall in a bright hue just makes me happy.

Besides yellow, it comes in white, mushroom and sand, too.

This is actually the Parker Leather Satchel, but it is just as cute! (But pricier, at $458)

As Coach puts it, the Parker collection draws its inspiration from the vitality and whimsy of spring. Love it. Would love it more with a lower price tag, but whatcha-gonna-do? Anyhow, I love yellow and the happiness it elicits--which is why my teenage bedroom at my parents' house I had painted a truly bright yellow-- so just looking is fine by me. I'm an expert window shopper.

Have any other cute bag's caught your eye lately? What else makes you think of spring?

I've been yearning after a Coach bag for some time now. They are so beautiful. That one is especially cute, although I don't think I'd want a yellow bag myself. Well, maybe I would, but not a $350 one :-)

I'm about to trade in my black guess purse (winter) for my white XOXO purse, which I think is much more springish!! I also wore flats with no socks today (and was a tad cold because of it) and have been eyeing up adorable spring dresses! I want to start wearing more dresses and I figure this is the year to do it!!
