I've been carrying around my Coach Madison Sadie Flap Satchel ($498 at Coach) for the past month and can't express how much I love this bag. It's the perfect mid-size bag and you can wear it over your shoulder with the long strap, carry it with your hand with the handle, or stylishly on the crook of your arm. I have it in the camel color with the light gold hardware.
The new light gold turn lock is gorgeous and subtle, along with the gold-trimmed coach tag that hangs from the handle. This bag is a stunner! I first wore this bag out to an Estee Lauder Beauty Lab event that took place in SF at the end of July. I had quite a few women come up to me at the event to compliment me on my bag and to ask me where it was from. In fact, I get a lot of looks when I take this bag out. It's a classic.
The spectator saffiano leather of this bag makes it so lightweight and the neutral camel color is perfect for fall. This is my first camel color bag and I am loving how it matches everything in my wardrobe. I can't wait to wear it with blacks and grays when sweater season really starts to kick in. The Madison Sadie also comes in pink/red and blue/navy, as well as embossed lizard leather.
In addition to the Sadie's good looks, what I probably love the most about this bag is how functional the interior is. When I open it, everything has its place and I'm not digging around inside a black hole. I use the back thin compartment to hold my cellphone or keys for easy access. The front thin compartment fits my iPad Mini perfectly. I also like the open pockets that fit my sunglasses, tissues and miscellaneous items. For those of you wondering, the bag can fit a regular sized iPad with enough room to include your essentials. In fact, this bag has a nice compact look but you can honestly stuff this bag with more things should you need to. The satin lining inside the bag is an added plus since it keeps all my things in great shape.
