Granted, not everyone has the monetary assets to buy bags that sell for thousands of dollars. The Chloe Paddington may only go for about a grant and a half, but then its availability (or lack thereof) creates another big issue that potential ‘it’ bag buyers must face. While Megs was lucky to have bought one of the last burgundy red Paddies available for this year (via the Chloe stores), others were not that lucky this year. The demand for Paddies was just overwhelming, I remember the lady at the Paris store laughing at me when I inquired for the precious bags a few weeks back. Please take a slip and wait in line… make yourself comfortable ‘cuz it’s gonna be a long wait – that’s as close of a description of what her laugh tried to tell me.
A viable alternative to those who want to get a piece of the paddilicious pie is the $360 Chloe Paddington Wallet. Yes ladies, the matching wallet to the infamous bag. The chocolate brown leather wallet comes with the signature large brass key, dangling off a silver zip fastening. Did I mention all Paddies have silver YKK zippers, no matter what the color of bag or handware? Internal pockets for credit cards, coins and notes and a slim press stud fastening pocket on the outside with brass rivets and ‘Chloe’ insignia provide ’nuff slots to store away all your magic plastic. More plastic, more shopping! Hence, the spacious wallet comes (un)practically handy when heading for the weekend shopping spree. Via Net-A-Porter.
