Celebrity Style: Eva Mendes and the Coach Bonnie Convertible Bag

Let me be honest, the thing I like least about Eva Mendes' look is her bag. I love everything else because it's how I usually dress - simple tee, wide leg jeans, and a cute page-boy cap to hide my cropped haircut. I tend to favor comfortable totes or hobos for everyday use so I can't fault Eva for selecting the Coach Bonnie Convertible Bag to top off her casual look. As I wrote before, the bag is my least favorite component of this ensemble. Perhaps it's the contrasting chalk white/navy trim leather exterior (the all camel version would have suited her best), or the expandable zippered sides and bottom (not my favorite design choice) that turn me off to this bag. In any case, I'm just not loving the 'Bonnie'.

I prefer the Foley + Corinna Mid City Tote to the Coach Bonnie Convertible Bag. Foley + Corinna have perfected the convertible bag, and pretty much have the market cornered when it comes to sleek, modern utilitarian bags. It's a good overall attempt by Coach, and I'm sure Coach lovers will be pleased with the results. I guess to each his/her own. Since Eva is such a big Coach fan, I can understand her loyalty to the brand. My advice to her would be to branch out and bring a more urban edge to her handbag collection with a Foley + Corinna bag. If she doesn't end up liking it more than the Coach version, I'd be more than happy to take it off her hands.
