A few years ago I held a seasonal position at Coach Handbags, needless to say I didn't really make any money working there because all my paychecks went into pieces like my large teal Madison bag. It was originally $500 but with my discount it came out to a savvy $250 (still YIKES! but not unattainable).
The year I started working at Coach (2009) is when they first introduced the Madison Collection and I knew it was love at first sight. Since their launch, Coach has kept this bag available and I couldn't recommend this splurge more! Throughout college I have thrown books, makeup, bottles of alcohol, you name it, in this bag and it still looks fabulous.
The bag comes in all sorts of classic colors, but the teal one was only available for a limited time. Most people might shy away from such a bright bag, but I can't stress enough that this bag literally goes with all sorts of outfits! I don't regret choosing my teal bag over a chocolate brown one for a minute (in a perfect world I'd have both).
