i love coach purses. i do. in a world full of fancy schmancy purses, coach is the only brand that appeals to me. i think most of the super expensive purses are ugly. hell, i think half of coach purses are ugly too.
anyway, i convinced myself that it was perfectly okay to buy a 200 dollar purse since it was guaranteed for life. FOR LIFE!!! if anything happens to it, you send it back and they fix it! purses for life- you'll never need another purse again.. genuis! perfect! i can spend ridiculous amounts of money on a purse because i'll never have to buy another one again!!!
i'm a sucker. or stupid.
because i honestly thought that having 1 in black and 1 in brown would suffice me for the rest of my existance. i mean really. am i that idiotic? apparently. i live near a coach outlet which is the first problem. the second problem is that i actually go there. often. but that's one of my rules- i refuse to buy a coach purse at a retail store. outlet only and even then.. sparingly. *coughs*
okay so boyfriend has told me that he would never ever ever ever ever buy me a coach purse. did i mention ever? he caved a christmas (or two ago) and said he would buy me one that would fit my camera in it. i was so excited! we went to the outlet together and i got a new black purse that fit everything! i was so happy (insert squeels of joy here).
and then my purse broke. (insert tears here)
and i thought that it was guaranteed for life, so YAY! no problem.. they'll fix it! hooray for coach!
but they couldn't fix it.
but they sent me a letter for the value of my purse, which was almost $300 dollars (which was nowhere near what we paid for it). so i could either take that letter and shop at any coach store, shop online, or i could let them know that i wanted my broken, unfixable purse back.
we went shopping yesterday!!! i got TWO new coach purses for the value of my one (well i did pay a little more to get them both). i got a new black one and another brown one. yeah, i know- i thought i wouldn't need another purse ever again.
anyway, i think it worked out well. almost too well for me.
don't tell coach k? cause i can totally imagine them being like "jennster, you have to take your purses back and just get one much cheaper purse because do you think we're stupid? you can't get 2 purses for the price of your 1 purse.. we'll go out of business." or they'll just come to my house and steal all my coach purses.
ha, i said "all" cause i have lots now. it's a sickness.
