Well it's Wednesday and do you know that that means? Its sharing my Guilty Pleasure time. C J Duggan started this fun Wednesday game so you should check her out next. I always leave with a smile.
My Guilty Pleasure this week is a Guilty but a 100% Pleasure.
I love Coach Bags. I don’t know why *shrugs shoulders* But I do. I'm not such a name brand gal. I have no issues shopping at Wal-mart, I don’t have designer sunglasses or carry a wee Chihuahua around for show. Heck even my shoes are whatever looks and feels good. So why am I so drawn to these lovely lovely bags? And no, don’t you dare flash a knock off in front of me. I have personal beliefs about stealing brand names, downloading illegal music and don’t even get me started on book piracy (see rant here)
Back to my love of Coach. Well let me tell you about the customer service I received from one of their fine stores. I was at the mall
forcing insisting begging convincing my son to get a hair cut and I stepped into a Coach store to browse and peak at the new Spring collections. While my son was being shampoo’d, cut and styled, I found myself with a few bags lined up in front of me as I posed in the mirror. I was a gonner. I. Had. To. Have.
The wonderful Coach sales lady, Diane, and I became quick friends and I stayed so long that my son was impatiently texting me from the hairdressers with a “Mom where r u?”. Diane was amazing. If I ran a store, I'd try and steal her.
Anyhow, I decided on a fun beige bag with the trademark CC etched in gold. I love my bag.
So about a week goes by and Diane from the Coach store phones me. She called just to ask me how I liked my bag, if everything is going well, did I have any other questions? Can you believe that? When does a sales person ever do that?
Then the next day, I receive in the mail a handwritten, yes handwritten AND personalized card about my conversation with Diane. (just so happens Diane is a book lover too so it was easy to be a bff) My card was a thank you for buying Coach and as a token of their gratitude; there was a $50 off anything in the store gift card.
What’s a girl to do but to go back into the Coach store and buy a matching wallet right? Yep, that's what I thought as well. So here is my lovely lovely wallet that I love so much. *pets*
Do you have a special name brand that you have to have regardless of a hefty price tag or perhaps you have to travel far away to get it? Is your Guilty Pleasure shoes? Sephora? Certain jeans?
