Bring Poppy Back!

It's been over a month since I last posted - I can't believe it's already March! Anyway, in my last post, I talked about charm bracelets. Well, I also have another unhealthy shopping obsession: purses. I have a couple of wristlets (mostly from Coach or Vera Bradley), a super cool Converse bag shaped like a shoe (I've gotten tons of compliments about it!) and other bags, like 2 full sized Coach ones, two Coach wallets, a full size Vera Bradley bag.

You could say I'm obsessed with purses. I prowl websites like eBay, Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Coach, etc, looking for cute bags. What I really wanted to post was to lament about Coach. In the past few years they've released NO fun designs - the Poppy bags from before were sparkly and young and eye-catching. Yes, Coach is not a company that tries to target youth, but I'm sure there are a lot of older teens-mid-twenties women who buy Coach purses. I, for one, haven't bought a single Coach purse in years because nothing particularly appeals to me. The simple, one color designs are frankly boring and I would never spend $200+ on a bag I hate. 

In my opinion, Coach should still try to target older, rather wealthier women but also try to make an effort to appeal to young people by bringing back the Poppy line from a few years ago. I'm sure that if Coach offered even a few bags designed to attract younger women they'd get more sales profits. I miss those bags so much! 

Here are examples of the kinds of Coach bags I'm talking about: 

These are so much more youthful and fun than their dreary one-color leather ones! Bring them back Coach!
