I've partnered with Coach to celebrate their 75th Anniversary! They sent me their iconic Saddle Bag 23 in the color, Bordeaux.
To say I'm in love would be an understatement.

When Coach reached out and asked me to help them celebrate their 75th Anniversary, I was beyond excited! I have been a huge fan of Coach since I was young (my mom had their bags!), but watching them transition their brand these last few years, to reach a new audience has been inspiring, to say the least. Their fun new collaborations, editorials, and runway shows have made them one of my favorite brands to watch as of late—it seems as though they've really hit a stride in finding a balance between their classic heritage, while embracing and welcoming the changing times.
Coach has been a staple in the leather goods industry since 1941, so for their 75th Anniversary, they've brought back some of their most classic silhouettes, and gave them an update! I'm rocking their iconic Saddle Bag 23, in the color Bordeaux. As someone who typically prefers all-black everything, this color is a breath of fresh air (but let's keep that between us).
The glovetanned leather is as smooth as butter; the craftsmanship is truly remarkable, and the result is pure luxury. The size is perfect for running around in the day; it has just enough room for the essentials like my wallet, compact camera, phone, and makeup bag—on the inside is this beautiful, bright red color, which I wasn't expecting, but it contrasts beautifully with the deep burgundy, and brightens up the inside enough that I can easily see whatever I need to grab.
For this look, I really wanted the bag to stand out and be the star, so, I went with all black (of course)—but, for a bit of texture/interest, I wore a a vintage velvet dress that I left unbuttoned, with raw hemmed jeans, and some strappy sandals. All-black can totally be interesting, just pay attention to the details, they are what will make it pop! I love how it all came together (#witchvibes forever), and the bag really sets it off! I'm so excited to keep rocking it, and I'll be bringing another look with this Bordeaux beauty your way soon!
Until next time...
