My hunt for the perfect shoulder bag is never-ending. The Coach Fall 2016 collection is just beautiful and reminds me a bit of the vintage Coach bags I’ve had my entire life. The ones my mom would scour at estate sales to find me in every color. But it was time I updated my Coach collection. I just scored the new Coach 1941 Leather Saddle Bag at Neiman Marcus for my travels to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It’s classic, luxurious, and super simple. That’s what I love about it. A lot of the Coach Fall 2016 collection was very western inspired. Loads of embellishment and studs. Somehow the classic “Dark Denim” bag stood out to me. It’s really a piece that will never go out of style. That’s the thing with Coach…each bag ages really well. It’s the leather! The 1941 saddle bag is so luxurious that I can slip my camera bag in, lipstick in it, and wallet in it, and it only gets better with more wear. And it’s practical for a day running around a city you’re just getting to know. My first day in Kuala Lumpur began with a delicious breakfast at the beautiful Majestic Hotel, followed by a visit to my cousin’s home with my aunt for a night of Steam Boat…my favorite meal. It’s a hot pot on a table, and all you do is dip whatever you want in it. Noodles. Tofu. Vegetables. Even in this crazy heat, we can take more spice! I kept things extra minimal with a full look from Neiman Marcus. A throw-on-and-go velvet maxi dress and satin slippers. I’ve been easing through my first hot, hot day in Malaysia. Our adventure has just begun.
