My python print hobo

Few days ago I bought my first ever Coach bag! Never before. Never after. The first. Will also be the last! A beautiful python print hobo with leather handles. Absolutely adorable. The price? Don't even ask! Not a single soul knew - except of course you all now...

Having had no inkling towards the brand, I'd never even cared to glance in that direction in the past. Lately however, I have shown some interest in the collection at the local stores but would soon walk away calling those "sour grapes". No amount of justification would ever truly justify my purchase if there was one.

So it came as a surprise even to me when I fell in prey this time for the python print hobo! Why, am I a fan of pythons? Not at all! Hobos? Sure! Coach? Sort of... It was at the full retail price and without any second thought I bought it. Only to be tormented over the next few hours of "owning" it, with so much guilt leading upto a nightmare of not pythons but frogs!

With the new day came a new resolve. I would return it! Realized I could not possibly live with that kind of guilt rest of my life. Also, definitely would not stop with just this one, if at all I give in. The only right decision was to go without it!

Trust me, it was a HUGE relief when I got the whole amount credited back! I sleep so much better now and feel that much lighter... which is of course priceless!

Happy July everyone!

I am so happy that you sleep with a lighter conscience. When I saw the pic, the question that plagued me was python print or skin?

It was yours for several hours. Now you can say you've had it once. Besides, most of them gather dust in women's wardrobe drawers most of the time (too precious for daily use).

Congratulations with your resolve! Funny story actually. :)

Thank you friends! You rock!

@Rachna: It was print of course! But had a soft velvety feel to it.

@Eye: You got a point. :)

@Bikram: I'll take that!

@Kavita: Hugs to you.

Where did you buy it from? J.C.Penny? I did once see animal leather accessories in JC Penny while they were ostensibly advertising their sustainable and environmentally compliant sourcing. That was not fake skin I saw.

good to see your resolve!

If you now feel better, then it was the right decision to return it and get a refund. That has happened to me a few times, too. What a relief!

NRIGirl said...

@Anil: It was from Macys.

I know how they all talk about one thing and do something totally contradictory...

Thanks @Gigi!

@Ashok! A hearty welcome to you. I must visit your blog.

Whoops, clicked on wrong button and managed to delete my comment. I'll try again.

This post could have been written by myself as I know this feeling all too well.

You would have getting no enjoyment from this purchase feeling as you did, far better to have returned it as you did.

You are an exception. Most people (women) I know would keep and buy another one........

My friend had planted the thought of brand name bags into my head about 3 years ago. Only two days ago, I bought my first Kenneth Cole at a whopping 80% off. There's no way I would have bought it otherwise. Yes, I know what you mean :)
