My Coach Has Arrived!
My Coach Barbie arrived yesterday. When I saw the box on the front steps, I took a deep breath. When this doll was announced a couple weeks ago, at the crazy price of $95, I said, I guess I won't be getting a Coach doll. Due to a BarbieCollector promotion, there was an immediate $15 discount. I still had my BC $20 coupon, so that put the doll price at $60 + shipping. I was still on the fence, so I shot our dear friend Debbie, from Black Doll Collecting, an email asking her if I should buy it. Her reply email was short and sweet, "Buy it!". I didn't hesitate. I went back on-line and purchased her. Afterwards, I read all the blog posts, where most people were not saying the greatest things about this doll. As a matter of fact, I didn't hear one person say they were buying this doll. As of a few days ago, the doll was SOLD OUT at BC.com. So I guess the people who were buying her, weren't spending time blogging about her. LOL.
I've never purchased a designer purse new, but I am aware that they do come in cloth cases. So it was a nice added touch to put the handbag in a case.
The outfit, particularly the coat, is very well made. As you can see, the top is a tank. I don't know what the back looks like because I'm not ready to take her out of her box, yet. I will also note, the glasses are adorable.
The anticipation builds.
La pièce de résistance!
It does have a snap on the inside.
So the purse can be closed.
It has a Coach tag and tassel.
It also comes with Care Instructions.
So I'm excited to have her in my collection. Thanks Debbie for pushing me off the fence.
