|Coach Saffiano leather mini satchel|
I had a little time to kill before dinner with a friend tonight so I stopped in a couple stores to check out the new arrivals. First stop, Coach. My favorites are the Saffiano mini satchel (doesn't it look so adorable on the mannequin above?) and the Saffiano North South tote. I like the simple, classic shape of both styles and the Saffiano leather is very lightweight.
After Coach, I stopped by Banana Republic and saw this pretty beaded necklace. It actually reminds me of a Stella Dot necklace (here). I liked it so much I had every intention of ordering online it when I got home. I had a 37% of code but I didn't use it tonight because it wouldn't let me stack it with a $15 birthday code from my sister (thank you fine print).
Lastly, I walked through J.Crew to check out some items from my wishlist in real life. I ended up crossing off the Colorblock tartine satchel from my list because I felt that it was slightly too big on me (for reference I'm about 5'2"). It's also heavy, the leather looks like it will scratch easily and get marked up, and it wasn't comfortable to hold due to the structured shape.
