{recap} #ChatWithCoach Event with Karlie Kloss & Eva Chen

Last Wednesday Coach held an event at their newly reopened downtown flagship store on 5th Avenue. Model Karlie Kloss and Lucky editor Eva Chen chatted about Coach, travel, trends for Spring, holiday gifting and much more. They invited a select group of influencers to actually be in store for the event and also livestreamed the full thing.  I was lucky enough to be invited and was able to leave work early to attend.

Obviously I was the first one there because I hate being late, so I got first pick of seats. I decided to sit on a couch in the back because it was comfortable and I would have felt awkward just staring at Karlie and Eva from the front row. I was joined on the couch by the lovely Dianna of Beyond the Row who I chatted with for a bit.
Listening to Karlie and Eva was like hearing two best friends talking.  I also learned that Eva shares my love of Lord of the Rings. While talking about her favorite color for this season she said she should have been an Elf so she could walk around in hunter green all day.  She also loves aubergine, which is one of my favorite colors as well, although I just say purple/maroon because I'm boring.
While talking about great gifts to get for the holiday season, Karlie mentioned how much she loves her Coach Borough bag, she has both the mini and the largest size which she uses for travel. Eva suggested the classic Coach Legacy Duffle and mentioned you should get it monogrammed for free at a Coach store to make it more personal!  I like bags with a little twist so I would personally choose the Legacy bag in Aubergine with haircalf paneling.

I took the time to find their exact outfits for you all, should you want to steal their amazing style.  All items are from Coach, obviously. Can I have everything they wore!?
Eva Chen: Handknit Aran Polo Neck Sweater, Leather Sexy Skirt, Samie Heel, and the Legacy Slim Clutch in Leather
Karlie Kloss: Zip Back Fine Gauge Crewneck Sweater, Leather High Waisted Trouser, Tabitha Flat, and the Mini Borough Bag in Polished Calfskin

I was braver than usual and asked both Eva and Karlie for a photo together. For those of you that know me, that's big! I'm always super shy at events and usually watch and drink everything in.

As I was leaving the event I got a gift bag with the latest issue of Lucky and a box from Coach.  I waited until I got home to open it and was greeted with a beautiful maroon croc embossed tablet case! I haven't been able to find it online but if I do I'll be sure to share the link in case you are interested. It is gorgeous and I plan on using it as a clutch as well as a case for my iPad.

Coach should be releasing a recap video shortly and I'll be sure to update this post with a link (or embed it if I'm able) UPDATE: Here's the video! You can see me a few times, but the best part is 2:57. Then there are glimpses of me after.


Thanks again to Coach and Lucky for the invite, I had an amazing time!!
