Daisybutter - UK Style and Fashion Blog: Coach Legacy Penny Purse

Recently I did the unthinkable.

I've become the phone and keys kinda girl.

I always thought that was a myth for effortlessly chic, Parisian women who simply... can. They can go with perfect mussed up hair, a slick of tinted lip balm and single coated mascara and just look damn good. In the same vein, they also don't need to carry twenty lipsticks 'just in case', nor do they need five different modes of entertainment at any one time.

So to slot in with my new minimal bag situ, I'm considering the Coach Legacy Penny Purse (£195) as a newcomer to the Daisybutter Handbag Ring. Pros? It's oh so small and chic with just enough room to house a bank card, some small change - some may say a 'penny' and then some... - and my car key. It's got some pretty darn good hardware on it and a fuss-free tassel. Cons? One just has to wonder which is the best home to store all these bags and keep 'em happy.

Share your bag stories with me in the comments: how do you store yours? Are you a grab-and-go girl or a kitchen-sink-always-inclusive kinda lady? Pray tell...
PS. Of course my current Legacy Penny obsession has nothing to do with the fact Taylor Swift was spotted toting one around a few months ago. Nope. Not at all.

  1. I don't carry 20 lipsticks with me, but I have the hardest decision when it comes to picking which cameras I will take with me when I leave the house... It's a heavy decision if I decide to bring the DSLR, the Polariod and a digital. But for quick trips, I just take phone, keys and wallet - light and simple.

  2. My gosh what a cuuuuuuute purse <3
    So chic and posh and love that they come
    in may colors c;
    I'm actually searching for a flipcase for my
    phone, the one where you can store cards
    as well! But I'm so wondering if I should
    get a purse where I can store phone +
    money, cards and keys....

    1. It's SO nice right! I'm not really a Coach kinda girl, but I'd make an exception for this one. (:

  3. I loved this bag until I saw the lining and now I hate it. :( I think my heart is still set of a Mulberry lily. Y'know, one of the little pale pink ones. *sigh*

    1. Haha, I can overlook the lining for how cute yet practical it is. (:

  4. In a similar vain I've been hankering after the Michael Kors mini Selma, though admittedly, *just because* it's "cute". Recently when I'm just popping out I grab my little H&M coin and card purse/pouch and stick my keys and phone in my pockets but I can't tell you how vulnerable I feel with the bare minimum of stuff! I think Taylor would want you to have this Legacy Penny Purse to be honest... And the price isn't too unreasonable!

    1. Haha we have shopping problems, Jade! I adore your H&M coin purse, I tend to attempt to take a coin purse and juggle my phone and keys, but I'm so clumsy that I "need" a small everyday bag.

  5. When I went to New York so many people had Coach bags & to be honest they all looked really tacky. This one is actually really cute & elegant. I love the raspberry coloured one! I'm quite minimalistic with what I put in my bag. Purse, phone, keys & lipbalm normally does me xx

    1. I typically think the same about Coach, it's a bit tourist-welded for my liking, but this is SO darn cute. I'm tempted by the red version!

  6. I love this bag!
    I've never really liked Coach but this is beautiful!
    I carry EVERYTHING around with me so this really wouldn't be suitable but I think I'd be willing to try to carry a lot less for that blue one!

    1. I tend to flit between the two, but have been so good recently with my belongings!

  8. I beg to differ on the French woman theory, but y'know…

    I love the fact you can get a contrasting tassel with Coach. I'll take the camel bag with green tassel please!
