Tuesday I got my hands on one of the new Coach Ladybug Applique Boxy Tote's. Its not even out yet in the Coach stores up here but it hit one of our department stores early so I snatched it up. Not two days into my purchase and what happens???? One of the little jewel decorations falls off! Not something I expect to happen to a 400$ bag! I asked when I bought it if the jewels were sewn or glued on and was promised sewn. Clearly not. I called Coach and they were surprised it fell off. When I asked if this was a common problem they said no but i'm wondering how intensive their research is given that they're barely even available to the public yet. The bag is covered in about a dozen of these little jewels so i'm wondering if they're just destined to fall off one by one.
I've already talked to Holt Renfrew, the department store I bought it at, and they're expecting my return tomorrow. Of course the only other copy they have is on hold for someone else which means likely no exchange for me. I was hoping to give it another shot to see if it happened again before completely throwing in the towel but c'est la vie.
Just a warning in case anyone was looking at it as well. Its not what i'd call durable.
Those bags are hot! I was thinking that myself, how are they held on? Appearantly glue, cheap glue, though since your bags were early arrivals thier quality might be more questionable than say a later arrival bag, maybe they were still getting the kinks worked out though they should have had them worked out in like January.
I dunno. Its just more of the same with a clunky lock attached to it. I find all those bags just shapeless piles of leather for some reason. I'm a fan of more structured shapes so that could be my problem. Give me a good boston or tote anyday.
Whether I can carry it off or not, I make my attempt. I try and have a very individual style.
