For Chloe the Marcie has been a major hit, which is why there are so many options. From hobos, to satchels, to totes, finished in leather or python in a variety of colors, there is an option for everyone.

Can I start by telling you how much I absolutely positively love Halloween? Actually, it coincides with my love of Autumn. I live for it. One of the many reasons I am beyond thrilled about our move to NYC is because we will get to experience a true fall again.

Recently I took issue with some of Chloe’s Fall 2010 runway bags, but the brand has somehow managed to redeem itself in my eyes in one fell swoop. Get on the bandwagon now, because the Chloe Cary Satchel has a ton of it-bag potential.

If you’ll think back with me to the mid-2000s, to a time when Chloé was releasing Paddingtons with giant bedazzled locks and people were snapping them up left and right, it might seem odd that Chloé Fall 2010 is so…minimalist. Spare, even.

I never really realized it until now, but I’ve always associated Chloé with bags made of thick, matte leather. That’s more or less been the brand’s modus operandi since the the Chloe Paddington came on the scene back in ’04. Lately, though, a bit of aesthetic change is afoot, and that’s clear with the Chloé Darla Shoulder Bag.

I continue to see the Chloe Marcie Bag on both Katie Holmes and Jessica Alba, which prompted another look at the latest hit from Chloe. Every time I see a Chloe bag or even their logo, the initial thought that pops into my mind is the weight of the bag.

For the longest time I associated Chloé with shoulder bags. It took me a while to realize that Chloé also really knows how to make exquisite clutches. Maybe that was a bit close-minded of me. But hey, I’ve realized the error of my way and I now expect all sorts of fabulous bags from Chloé, not just what I was originally accustom to.

Are you able to look at an item and see the amount of time and work that went into it, thereby justifying the price to yourself? I have done this with quite a few bags in my collection, including my Hermes Birkins.

When we started PurseBlog back in 2005, the Chloe Paddington “it bag” sensation was at its height. In fact, Vlad and I made a 6 hour both way drive to Munich to get one ourselves. Following the Paddington came the Silverado, which attempted to ride the wave.

Hold on to your hats, ladies, it’s time to get into the PurseBlog wayback machine and take a trip to 2005. The world economy is still humming along, I’m still in college, and It Bags rule the world – none more so than the Chloé Paddington.
