Chloe Ely Medium BagI’ve really enjoyed all of the Chloe bags this season so far, so seeing the Chloe Ely Medium Bag today for the first time made me kind of sad. It’s the first of this season’s accessories line that I don’t like in any way, and I’ve got a couple reasons as to why. First, it’s just kinda…square. It looks more like a carry-on for an airplane, or maybe a toiletries case, than a handbag to be used for everyday purposes.

Chloe Ethel ToteFirst, I’d like to say that I don’t like pink bags. Or pink in general. I was a tomboy as a kid and although I’m a girly girl now, I don’t think I ever quite grew out of my irritation over the belief that all girls love pink. We don’t! That being said, I’d like to completely contradict myself by liking the Chloe Ethel Tote.

Chloe Sally Flap Bag I saw the Chloe Sally Flap Bag yesterday at Saks in Atlanta and thought to myself that I’d really like to be able to write about it, but it’d probably be a while before I saw it online. I check all of my favorite sites for new bags basically every day, and it hadn’t appeared on any of them even for a moment, so I figured that all was lost.

Canvas on a bag, especially in a light color as this one, is especially hard to care for. In fact, it is practically a lost cause. Any little bit of wear will show on canvas, starting with the corners and creases and then it will eventually spread. It does not mean that I have not tried many canvas bags before, and while they got dirty, I treated them as carefully as possible so they could still look nice over time.

Is it the Paraty or the Paratay? Net A Porter and Saks seem to think differently on the spelling of this hit Chloe bag. The luscious python version of the Paraty got the handbag world buzzing, questioning the designer and desiring to be on the wait list. The python version had my full attention as well. But last week when I saw the Paratay in Saks I was left feeling not completely satisfied.

Just a quick FYI for those who care and those who love the Chloe Paraty Bag! It popped up last week on NAP UK and this week on NAP USA. Seems to be sold out already. Really, do so many of you absolutely adore it? I saw it in person and it did not give me the same instant WOW factor that I yearn for.

There has not been as much hype for a Chloe bag since the highly sought after and coveted Paddington. Which bag am I referring to? The Chloe Paraty of course. This bag was first spotted on celebs, namely Katie Holmes. Once seen, the buzz began over this casual cool bag. Once it was figured out to be the Chloe Paraty Bag in python the masses began calling Chloe boutiques to get their names on a wait list.

Somebody is listening to us!!! I covered See by Chloe bags recently on Purse Blog and was less than impressed. There was no beauty, no concept, just lack of creativity in their bags. Now I found a See by Chloe bag that works. And while this brand would typically fit on Purse Blog Savvy, I am going to un-shame the See by Chloe line on Purse Blog.

It’s Wednesday. What better way to get over the mid-week hump than spending a little time drooling over handbags? While you sit there thinking how your nefarious boss keeps piling up the work while all you want to do is kick back for a minute, fear not, take even just a few minutes with this clutch and you’ll feel refreshed.


Chloe Heloise Bowler Bag

So, we’re all familiar with the Chloe Heloise bag. It’s been out for a few seasons now, and interest in it may have died down a bit, although it is, by all accounts, a beautiful and functional bag with a bit of a funky edge (something that Chloe does well). Something that Chloe also does well – milk an ‘it’ bag for all it’s worth (hey, not that I can blame them)!
