I like Coach handbags. They’re smart, clean in design, nicely made. But I can’t deal with the fact that they’ve become a status symbol for teen-aged girls. It’s so prevalent. I just saw a news report that took place at a high school and so many girls had them.

I hate to sound like an old grown-up, but I think I’m done with that particular brand. Those of us who have come into our own need special things of our own, I think. Like my scarf collection — Hermes, Versace, Pucci, Nicole Miller. Oooh la la. What fun.

And they all look fab wrapped around my handbag from Target.
