Santa, Baby remains one of my all time favorite holiday songs.

Eartha Kitt is so elegant. So fabulous. So unabashedly materialistic! Eartha is cooing about the kind of Christmas most of us dream about. So maybe this year Santa won’t be bringing you a yacht or the deed to a platinum mine. But thanks to the Coach Holiday Blog-a-Day, you might just win something special from an esteemed accessories brand.

Coach specially selected thirty bloggers (including moi!) to share their favorites from the Holiday Collection. And one lucky reader will get to win a special prize! I’m super stoked — this is my biggest giveaway yet!!

Coach has a gift to suit your every need, but my absolute favorites from the 2009 holiday collection are as follows.


The gloves. Coach has ’em in every color, but I’m especially loving the motorcycle gloves. Paired with a simple black sweater and jeans, they’re subtle but effective statement makers.

The Sabrina Bag. Does it get more classic than this? This is the perfect size purse for work, play, and the wee hours in between. Love the shape and the capacity — this is the kind of purse any bella would be proud to take a-traveling, am I right?

The Textured Metallic Audrey. It gets no flyer! This purse turns heads. Trust me! The Textured Metallic Audrey was my companion on the Oasis of the Seas cruise, and I got nothing but questions about it. The wonderful thing about being on that particular ship was, I could just point the curious onlookers in the direction of the Coach store right there on board!

So 30 days, 30 blogs. Click here for the complete list. And to win a Sabrina purse of your very own right here on Afrobella — leave me a comment and let me know — have you been a good bella this year? Tell me the best deed you did in 2009!
