Chloe Python Paraty

For the longest time I resisted Chloe Paraty telling myself it is too heavy and the leather was not supple enough for my liking. If a gal has to shell out $1835 then she should love the bag without reservation. I am not one of those gals who will buy something on trend or simply because it is an IT-BAG. I like the simple design as we all know it will stand the test of time. It is also quite versatile with a long shoulder and double short straps. A gal can use it 2 different ways depending on the occasion. But, something always stops me from handing over my credit card to my eager SA..... I really like beige color for year round use.
So here is my woe, it is really good and bad (*almost downright evil) to have gal pals who love to shop. On the one hand, we can exchange ideas and bags but the temptation...... You know it is so easy to justify a purchase when someone else buys something too. If she buys something then I won't feel so guilty. Anyhoo, gal pal bought herself a python Paraty the other day. Let me just say it is to die for. The bag is really supple and simply luxurious. I know now why I can't buy the leather Paraty. It is because python is so much better.
Lots of celebs are sporting the Chloe python Paraty around town. Besides Lindsay Lohan, and Katie Holmes, Charlize Theron and Rachel Zoe are all seen around town with their Paraty. Now, I am in need to ask Santa if he can wire me $3820 gold coins for Christmas. What do you think of Chloe Paraty?

  1. I'm a sucker for bags but I've never fallen for a Chloe one yet - I'm not a snake lover so avoid all things python but I'm always might glad they get killed and skinned!

  4. Savvy, I'm undecided about python. Kinda love it, kinda not sure if it's too creepy.
    Haha, enabling girlfriends is the best and worst! Resist a little longer!
    The paraty is pretty cute but I don't think it's worth $3800.

  6. It's very nice but I have a beige leather bag from Dooney and Burke that does the same job of being a cute, neutral bag and cost way less.

  8. Isn't she beautiful? I want that bag so much. Somehow I always end up coveting the bags that Lindsay Lohan owns. So weird. :)

  18. I thought the Paraty was cute until I saw the python version and I really fell in love. But like you, I need Santa to come and give me $3820 gold coins! *prays*

  22. I like the plain leather one over the black python actually

    I like kind of more rustic things, I think and black turns me off..
