The $10,000 Coach Legacy Alligator Bag: Coach Has Lost It’s #$% Mind

You never forget your first….

For my 16th birthday, I received my first designer handbag, a black Coach Saddle bag. Back in the day (early 90s), Coach was like THE handbag to have, right up there with Liz Claiborne and Esprit. I loved that bag more than life itself and for a while, I was officially the coolest kid at Washburn Senior High.

Coach continues to occupy a special place in my heart, but they have lost their #$% minds with the release of the $10,000 Coach Legacy Alligator Bag. When I first read about this bag, on the lovely blog bagsnob, I seriously thought it was a joke. In my humble opinion, $10,000 for any bag is wacko, but who, in their right mind, would pay $10,000 for a Coach handbag? Especially one that resembles a a bag I recently saw at Lord & Taylor for less than $100 by budget bag designer, Kathy Van Zeeland. Could you imagine paying that much for a Coach bag and then seeing the same bag at TJ Maxx, where all Coach bags go to die, for like $200 bucks?
