jimmy choo rio clutch

Posting has been light because Vlad and I are in New York City right now. We have been meeting with some fabulous designers (who you will all get to ‘meet’ soon!) and doing some major shopping. We will have great things to show you soon!!!

Spending Halloween in NYC is something else. We have seen a plethora of working folks on Wall Street in costume, and some people appeared to be in costume but it is most likely their everyday garb.

Chloe Beata Patent Shoulder Bag

This handbag is so manly it is making my estrogen run and hide. Seriously, I understand that Chloe wants to sport the chunky hardware and thick leather look, but everything about this handbag screams out brute-force-man. Feast your eyes on the testosterone filled Chloe Beata Patent Shoulder Bag, which looks as if it belongs in a male society before it belongs on the arm of a fashionable woman.

Just as the Chloe Bay Bag began to warm up to me, Chloe releases in in a fresh new look. But is this look appealing or is it too stark? The Chloe Patent Leather Bay Bag sports white patent leather with contrast green zipper detailing. The color combination makes me feel like this would be in a tennis ad with Maria Sharapova.

Chloe Paddington

Sure, some of you may be totally over the Chloe Paddington, but this craze is still going on to this day. There is something about the chunky hardware, the thick leather, and that extremely heavy lock that makes all the world want this handbag. Face it, this is a hit bag, not just a seasonal trend. If you ask anyone in the fashion industry they will let you know that the Chloe Paddington became a staple in the handbag world, bringing in millions of followers world wide.

Chloe Heloise Cherry Bag

A slight tinge of gold is the ideal way to add metallic shine without overpowering your handbag, your outfit, or you. Designed with a touch of burnished golden leather and set off with brown leather, the limited edition Chloe Heloise Cherry Bag adds just the right touch to a simple design. The Heloise is based on a simple shape design, so small additions on the bag help it stand out.

Are you ga-ga for green or is this green handbag gross? The Chloe Audra Patent Satchel is designed with shocking green patent leather and is finished off with silvertone hardware. Contrasting trim adds a dimension to the bag, as does the front pocket with turn-lock closure. There are double top shoulder straps with an 8″ drop. On the inside, like many Chloe bags, there is canvas lining and a zip pocket.

Chloe Large Paddington Capsule Tote

To all of the Paddington carriers out there, just admit it, your bag weighs a ton but you continue to carry it with the lock because, after all, the lock is what makes the bag. It is true, I do it too. I shift my body weight from side to side, move the bag from one arm to the next, all in an effort to make the bag feel less heavy but still look good.

Chloe Python Clutch

This clutch is a different look from the house of Chloe. Typically chunky hardware and sturdy leather come to mind when I think of a Chloe handbag. But the Chloe Python Clutch shows a different side of Chloe; with a deco-inspired theme and geometric golden hardware top. The shape of this clutch would make anyone do a double take to re-check the designer label.

Chloe Katie Embroidered Bag

My mom made her clothes growing up, because her mom made her clothes when she was growing up. My mom even made our Halloween costumes for a few years, then realized the beauty of buying store bought costumes and threw away her sewing machine (not literally). I never learned to make clothes. I can’t even hem pants, but it is on my to-learn list.

Chloe Heloise Bag

Chloe is well known for their heavy leather, chunky accessories, and paddlocks but now they would like to break into a new dimension. Braided leather. We all know that Bottega Veneta lives on top of the world with their woven leather, but can Chloe break in at all? The Chloe Heloise Bag features a stunning shade of taupe leather with gold tone hardware and a chunky braided top handle.
