I want, I need......

.....one of these bags.




I have a white handbag that I've been using this summer but it was meant to be a temporary bag (it was cheap and is now beginning to fall apart). I love, love, love the Coach bag (the first one) but the J. Crew one is cheaper and currently an additional 20% off. What do you think? Do I invest in the Coach bag or settle for the J. Crew? I'm torn..... BTW - I would remove the long strap from the J. Crew bag - I don't enjoy that look.

I love the Coach bag, but since white can only be used certain months out of the year and it's on sale, I would go with the J.Crew bag. I am not a fan of the long strap either.

I always say make the investment on something good, and Coach is always more than good :) It will last your forever! Good luck with choosing they're both adorable!

LOVE the J crew one! And I agree - not a fan of the long strap.

Hi - It depends on how much you plan to use it! Get the Coach if it will be your main summer bag. Get the J Crew if you only plan to use it occasionally. Both are great choices.

I'm voting for the Coach - only because I got a white bag from them last summer and it still looks so great. And we all know how white could look a year and a half later! I know it seems like you will only get to use it for a short amount of time but I used mine from like April to September last year and used it almost every day! Well worth the investment!! :)

I don't know if you have purchased a J Crew leather bag yet, but they are super high quality bags! The leather smells scrumptious and is super soft. I love Coach, but I have been loving that J Crew bag for a while now.... My vote is for the J Crew!

I have to say I like the second one better but Coach bags are good.

Hi! I just started following you a few days ago...
I would go for the J.Crew bag!

Personally, I like the second one better!

I vote for the JCrew one. The shape is really different and I like the tan handle.

I like the J. Crew bag much better, sans the long strap. Don't like the silver stuff on the Coach bag. But if you can make yours last another six weeks, I'll bet these will all go on sale right after Labor Day.

Love the second. Tan and white. Lovely.

I like the J crew bag better than the Coach bag. I don't know why I'm not a huge fan of Coach? Go for it! Besides they are on sale!!
