Coach Swing Zip review

How cute is the Coach Swing Zip! This small satchel is a reissue of an almost identical version Coach released in the early 2000’s. Do you know what this means? Glove tanned leather! Yes! Of course, it is not the same as the leather from the 1990s, but still, the glove tanned leather from Coach is still nice.

There is currently an east/west satchel trend on the streets right now, so the Coach Swing Zip fits right into that trend making it both classic and trendy, love that! The Swing Zip by Coach offers a zipper closure, an interior zipper pocket, and an interior slip pocket. The two shoulder straps are adjustable, but I don’t see why anyone would adjust them. The straps are perfect for wearing the bag as a shoulder bag.

The Coach Swing Zip is room enough for daily essentials, but it is still on the small side. I can fit my wallet, lipstick, phone, keys, Kleenex, and glasses case inside.

There is still a small amount of room after I fill the bag with my essentials, but not much. I would say it is a step up, interior space-wise, from the Coach Swinger.

The Coach Swing Zip is proving to be a popular reissue. it seems to sell out with a day or two of Coach releasing a batch. If you follow me on LTK you can save this link and the app will alert you when it restocks.

This is a great, timeless satchel priced well under $500 you can feel good about investing in. I love mine! You can find the Swing Zip by Coach online here.

Shop your closet for spring 2024

Spring 2024 is right around the corner, and before we start spending big bucks on new spring merch, it is always a good idea to scout out what’s in our closets for items which are hot this season. It’s a great way to bring new life to older items we have tucked away, as well as a way to save money! Love that!

First off, if you have been staying away from logos, keep doing it. Spring 2024 is a continuation of the anonymous handbag. Keep reaching for handbags and jewelry which offer high quality, and timeless style.

So, without further ado, here are a few things from your closet to bring forward for spring 2024.

Hoops: Hoops are a classic style, but they are popping up as an important earring style this season. Polish off those hoops if you haven’t already!

Doctor Bags: Structured, double top handle satchels are a classic handbag style which is proving to be important for spring 2024. Coach and Kate Spade had styles on their spring 2024 runways, and other designers will be showing them too. If you have a Givenchy Antigona you haven’t worn in awhile, pull it out! Also, any doctor bags or structured, double handbag satchels you have in your closet, bring those out too.

Chain strap shoulder bags: While logos have gone to the back of your closet, chain strap shoulder bags are gaining momentum. It’s OK if they have that double “CC” showing. You just don’t want the fabrication of the bag to bear logos. Logo clasp-yes, Logo fabric-no. You can wear any designer’s chain strap handbag; quilted or smooth. The Chanel classic flap aesthetic is rolling back onto the streets.

Pastels: I know, I know, this is hugely groundbreaking. Pastels for spring are hotter than hot; especially pink and lilac. Rock those unexpected spring hues. Haha

Peach: Everything peach! This is the color of 2024 and it is a natural spring hue, so bring out your peachy garments.

Yellow handbags: A few years ago, yellow handbags were all the rage, well, you’re in luck! Bring those bags back out from the back of your closet and rock them in spring 2024. Yellow bags are back baby!

Wide leg pants: This is a continuing trend. Look for wide leg pants in every style from denim to work trousers to evening attire. It’s all about the wide leg.

Faux fur jackets and coats: There is a social media craze right now called the “Mob Wife Aesthetic.” This may or may not be a fleeting trend. Part of the look is to pair a faux fur jacket or coat with a chain strap handbag. I wouldn’t invest in a faux fur jacket or coat, but if you have one tucked away from a few seasons ago, pull it out, put on your hoops, and grab your chain strap bag. With this look, no one would dare mess with you.

Loafers: These traditional shoes are still popular in 2024. Pull out your classic loafers, and pair them with skirts, pants, and dresses. They are hot.

Well, there’s you have it! These are the items to find in the back of your closet for spring 2024. Happy shopping!

Handbag wish list 2024

handbag wish list 2024 it bags street style

Handbag wish list from top left: dark brown shoulder bag / black hobo bag / doctor bag (Coach runway, not in stores yet) / small tote bag / large satchel / dark green tote /

So many beautiful bags! My handbag wish list is long, as always! haha So, I narrowed it down to the top six I would like to see added to my wardrobe in 2024. Let’s see if I can do it! ha!

I am looking at the bags on my handbag wish list and thinking they look like fall colors, but the doctor bag is actually a spring handbag. The dark green tote is a beautiful shade of green, but if a softer color comes in for spring, I might invest in a different hue. I just love the tote bag itself; I am not too picky about color.

See that beautiful, light beige satchel? It’s actually large, soft and floppy. It sells out quickly so I am not sure I will get my hands on one, but right now I am admiring it in photographs. If you snap one up, let me know! It’s gorgeous!

You may have noticed, I have been eyeing this small, black tote bag for quite some time. Hopefully I can snag one soon! Of course, this brown shoulder bag and this black hobo are also calling my name. So, choosing is hard! Which would you pick up first?
