Talking with my mouth full (that’s no surprise for me). Book signing event at Coach Bloor Street

My love for Coach started back in the 90’s, while vacationing in California.  I loved the store and all of the leather bags with their moisturizing lotion, dustbags, etc. I would go back again and again and try on bag after bag. My trips home to NY always include a visit to the Coach Factory Outlet in Woodbury  Commons and a visit to the Coach Store in Danbury, Connecticut.  And let’s not forget Coach in Manhattan.

They’re a great value as well and timeless.  I still have my Coach bag from early 2000-and I have all of my dustbags, lotions, sprays to care for them.  I have shoulder bags, jewelry, wallets, universal cases, purses, and even an Ipad case!

So it’s not a surprise that the majority of my bags/purses/totes are from Coach. I have 2 stores within 10 minutes of my home to shop in, I’m on the email list, I have liked the Facebook page, and follow on Twitter.  When I received an email about Gail Simmons’ book signing at the Bloor Street Coach Store, I HAD to go!  In addition to having the opportunity to meet Gail, I also wanted to see (in real life) Coach Spring 2012.

First, the hair-styled by Dylan of course and my ensemble.  I went a little simple-floral dress, pumps, and a vintage kelly green clutch (not pictured).

and the whole thing-please excuse the cardboard box in the corner:

So upon arriving at Coach, I immediately went to meet Gail.  I have her book on my Kindle, so I had her sign my Smash book.  What a lovely person she is-besides just the standard ‘Thanks for coming, who should I address this to”, she took time to interact with attendees.  It wasn’t a typical book signing-and I appreciated that, as did the other guests.

After meeting Gail, I took some time to browse the store.  As usual, Coach Spring 2012 does NOT disappoint.

The handsome & lovely from Coach!


This event was perfect to usher in Spring.  Gail was a breath of fresh air (review of her book to come), and Coach 2012 offers fresh, vibrant bags/accessories for Spring.  Even the weather cooperated!

Here are my purchases-again, very spring-like!

Thanks to everyone at Coach for giving me the opportunity to attend and meet Gail Simmons!
