A mom’s review of the Olive Shoulder Bag from the Coach Bonnie collection

Coach Bonnie olive shoulder bagAnd now for something different!  Moms this one is for you, just for you!

Being the practical moms that we are it is not every day that we would consider spending $248.00 on a purse, but this is certainly no ordinary purse!  Not only is it by Coach, the materials, construction and detail making this a one of a kind under arm luxury.

This satchel featured in Coach’s Bonnie Collection and inspired by famed Coach designer Bonnie Cashin, exudes quality and class, just what we moms want and deserve, right?  The body of the bag is beautifully supple leather in an Olive Green with accents in apple green leather.  Delicious!  The metal openings are covered with the same apple green leather which is a touch not expected in this price range.Coach Bonnie - Olive Shoulder Bag

The satchel is expandable by about two inches by activating the robust zipper around the bottom.  What do you see but a beautiful inset green leather expansion gusset?  This just gets better and better!

The leather and synthetic strap is removable turning this piece into a clutch that will simply make you feel good!

Of course we can’t forget the interior which is beautifully finished with a zippered pocket and a slide-in pocket.

Don’t forget, moms this one is for you because you cannot get diapers, bottles, fruit juice, or a days’ supply of wet wipes in this bag so you won’t be tempted.

New from Coach’s spring 2009 Parker line: Parker Leather Shoulder Bag


The second in my series of Coach Parker handbag reviews.. the Parker Leather Shoulder Bag is yet another beautiful new bag from Coach's new Parker line. 

The Parker Leather Shoulder Bag is a gorgeous, mid-sized, leather shoulder bag with fabric trim and a delicate fabric inner lining. 
This bag is the rosegold/nickel color/style.  In addition to this beautiful metallic color, the Parker Leather Shoulder Bag is available in three beautiful spring inspired shades that work well with the season’s key colors.  This Parker bag will make even your simplest ensemble look radiant. The shaded Parker Leather Shoulder bags are $358 while the metallic bag is $398 and is an excellent value as it is a handbag that you will enjoy for many years.

Why I love the Coach Parker Leather Shoulder Bag:

  • The size is perfect for a mom with a toddler.
    Madleyn is 2 so I don't have to carry 3 outfits, diapers, 2 sippies, snacks, etc..

Coachinside I carry 1 change of clothes, a sippy cup, a snack bag, a book, and a toy.  All of these things plus my wallet, phone, and 'accessories' fit nicely in this Parker.

  • One of the outer gusset pockets holds Madelyn's sippy cup and the other holds my iPhone giving me access to two of the most important things I need when I'm out.
  • The 18” handle with 8 1/2” drop makes the bag easy to carry and get into even while I'm carrying Madelyn.
  • I love that the inner slip and zipper pockets in this bag are thin and not bulky so they don't stick out into the bag but give just enough room for storing lipstick, a compact mirror, and even an 8 pack of crayons.
  • The Parker Leather Shoulder Bag is available in rosegold/nickel (shown here) and three solid shades.
  • Overall, the Coach Parker Leather Shoulder Bag is an excellent bag for moms with new babies and toddlers alike and of course for women in general!
