Taylor Swift’s Coach bag
Will she marry a Kennedy? No matter where her relationship with Conor Kennedy goes (we’re guessing into a song), Swift has got her Hyannisport style down to a t, especially with her little Coach Legacy Saddle bag, which she’s been wearing with all her clothes. One nice touch — she’s skipped the Jackie O shades for her own Ray-Ban Wayfarers. The bag is available in the UAE at Coach outlets, from Dhxx.
