Katie Holmes has been seen sporting her Chloe Paraty satchel everywhere. I guess it's a really nice bag, but for me personally I just couldn't convince myself to shell out $1895 for this yet. The other day at Nordstrom, I saw one in cream which would be perfect for summer. But, upon closer inspection I find the leather not as soft and bag structure too hard for a casual bag. The exotic skin Paraty is much softer and collapses beautifully, unlike the plain calf leather. One thing I do like is the extra shoulder strap to sling the bag on the shoulder. However, the strap is too short to wear cross body. I look really stupid doing so in the store. The satchel above measures 15.5 x 10 x 7 inches which offer plenty of room. Is this an IT bag for you?
