What I Like About This Coach Tabby Bag
Frankly, the better question is what's not to like? The compact handbag is deceptively deep, with enough interior space to fit everything from my passport holder and mace to my car keys, sunglasses, emergency lipstick, and even a small granola bar for on-the-go snacking. Despite its spacious interior, the lightweight bag doesn't feel like a burden to carry — in fact, more often than not, I forget that it's strung up on my shoulder at all. The accessory has a variety of different carrying options, which allow you to hold it like a handbag, drape it over your shoulder, or even attach a longer strap, so that it converts into a classic crossbody.
Besides the handbag's practical design, I also can't get over just how stylish it is. The bag is made from the label's signature pebble leather material that's textured and incredibly durable. I opted to test the style in the flower pink colorway, but love that the accessory is also available to shop in other, pretty pastel colors like yellow-gold and light violet — both of which would make such a fresh addition to any seasonal wardrobe.
What's Worth Noting
When it comes to shoulder bags, I prefer softer styles, as they feel less clunky and don't irritate my underarm. While this handbag has a soft and rounded look to it — much like its puffy, Pillow Tabby counterpart — it actually doesn't have much of a cushioned feel. This was surprising to me upon first wear, as the gentler look of the Coach Tabby always gave me the impression that it would feel spongy or flexible. While it hasn't necessarily aligned with my fit expectations, I've still been pleasantly surprised by just how comfortable the style is and how effortlessly it sits on my arm.
