Chloe Paraty Satchel

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?

  8. Hi there-I don't think its stupid to test the bag, its a lot of money to pay out, so it needs to be perfect :-) I do like the look of it, but your review does give 2nd thoughts!

  9. The color is gorgeous. I'm not sure if it's destined to be my IT bag, however, I have my eye on a few others at the moment, in the form of Balenciaga. :)

  10. The color is beautiful! However, I don't think it's really an IT bag for me and the price is pretty expensive.

  11. it's a cute bag but it doesn't give me the I-MUST-TAKE-HOME feeling.

  12. I adore a huge satchel, but this one is a bit nondescript to qualify as an "it" bag, I think...

    Btw, SG ~ you should do a lust list!

  15. I would pass. I don't really think it's very special maybe if it was spunky had a zazza zoom about it but it doesn't, so $1895 is just nuts!
