Spring must have handbags
Chloe makes some of the best handbags around. I just received my third Chloe bag and its perfection. I wanted something small and cross-body with some sass. My hubby gave it to me as a gift but it didn't arrive till weeks after the holiday but was worth the wait.
My new purse and wallet arrived Saturday while we were at the beach but was a pleasant surprise to come home to. I have a Chloe larger tote with similar look. I also have an older Chloe bag with the large padlock and key in black but I got it used off eBay. That was my original first Chloe, it was called the paddington bag.
Paddington bag by Chloe was an eBay purchase many years ago. Loved how the bag looked in photos but never loved how it looked on me, it didn't have a god shape and the lock was very heavy along with the hardware to close the bag so it would hang in the front. Considering selling it now because I only carried for a few months when I first got it, it sits in my closet in a dust bag behind my dresses.
This was my second bag and first brand new purse, still purchased off eBay. It was the floor model but it didn't matter to me. The leather is so soft and the color is gorgeous. I never was able to get a matching Chloe wallet but I did find a brown Tory Burch zip around wallet that matched nicely.
Very similar to my bag but suede and in navy blue with gold. My bag looks almost identical to this one but I got leather black with gold.
Also love this simple black leather saddle style cross-body Chloe. I am blessed my hubby buys me nice gifts and he knows how much I love handbags. I would never splurge like this but he knew I loved this bag and had not purchased any expensive handbags in a while. If it wasn't for my hubby I wouldn't have any purses in this league, I would only have my Michael Kors, and Tory Burch with some other similar price level bags. For many years back 16 years ago I was a Coach girl, then Juicy, and Michael Kors more recently I have loved Tory Burch, Marc Jacobs and of course Chloe, Burberry, LV and I'm sure I missed some other designers I love, it's late.
More not Chloe purses for Spring
Looking for a similar look without breaking the bank, check out these styles. I ordered the brown saddle bag for myself for festival season and the o ring front bag with chain strap by Forever21 and the both have similar looks to the new Chloe bags but from $19.90 to $25.
Pantone color for spring rose pink and I personally am loving blush pink. It has been my go to neutral nail color for months and loving all the girly dresses in this shade.
This could be a twin for the Chloe bag. Yes, made by Forever21 I have been saying they are on point and I'm not kidding.
I went with the brown in the above bag only because I knew my Chloe bag was black. You can't go wrong either way.
A little side by side comparison of a Chloe Faye bag and one of Forever21's new style bags. Really if you are looking for a trendy bag for the season but don't want to spend a fortune, you can get several at Forever21. I know I have my one bag I carry everyday then I have my bags I change out to match outfits for me they don't have to be top of the line quality just look cute.
Enjoy shopping and be sure to browse Forever21 I know I ordered a lot of goodies plus have a cart full for payday. XoXo
