More Paddington Problems...HELP...

  1. My bad luck strikes again. A little background info is needed for this post. Since the Paddington came out, I've wanted an ivory one but have always been too poor to afford it. I finally got the money and they were sold out, EVERYWHERE. Then I found a lovely lady here who was trying to sell hers, I thought my luck that is usually horrible was turning around, I was terribly mistaken, the package containing my bag was lost in the mail. So my mom being the wonderful person she is broke down, she always told me spending 1,500 dollars on a handbag was the most pointless thing she could ever think of. But like I said she broke down, she went on Net-A-Porter and started searching. She found a Paddington and bought it for me. She assured me it was the one I want, I was sure it wasn’t. When the bag came was excited but hesitant, needless to say, it is going back and was not the color I wanted. (I found out later was called “sand,” she emailed them about how it looked white not sand in the picture and which color was it, they assured her she would get the same color bag as they were marketing, she did not get the same bag as the one pictured.)

    My question now, because I don’t follow designers and new lines is, is there going to be a new line coming out with ivory as one of their colors again? Also, does anyone know ANYWHERE I can get an Ivory Paddington, I don’t care if it’s private seller, or whatever as long as it is authentic of course. At this point it has become more of an obsession than anything, I am so sick of coming close and not getting this bag.
  2. ahh Vangilder, I feel for you. Its awful to want something so badly and not be able to get it.

    The sand colour from Net-a-Porter is the latest pale colour out, but it is more sand as the name suggests. Ivory or creme is a summer colour, so the only way to get one is to scour the market place here or look on eBay. But always check with us in the Chloe forum on the authentication before you bid.

    I am going to have a look for you this afternoon, and see what we can come up with.

    Hopefully, your Paddington luck will change ;)
  3. Thank you, I hate looking on eBay myslef, because I'm scared it won't be real, or I'll get scammed or something. I could use all the help I could get.
  4. Vanguilder, my heart goes out to you too. I hate coming close and having to settle because I really want something. You're right to hold out. I'm going to the mall Friday and will scour Nordstrom and Neimans. Plus I'll check with my s/a at Neimans to see if she can locate one for you. Will post if I find anything.

    Good luck, and think will come your way!

  5. That's exactly what I don't want to do, I don't want to settle. Thank you so much, it would be great if your S/A could help me out! The malls around here don't carry too much Chloe stuff even our nicest malls at our nicest Nordstroms, I've searched every mall in my area a zillion times. Thanks again!
  6. Oh Vanguilder, you have my full sympathies :sad: If the stores have completely run ot of Ivory, then maybe you ought to head the eBay way...but get help from the experts here to help you authenticate, that may be the best way to go - if you REALLY want that color :yes:
