my first paddy - it's FINALLY HERE

  1. It's finally here!!!! Meet my uber gorgeous Nutmeg paddy!

    Here's my story - I have been lusting over a paddy since mid 2006 but I only started working so I didn't have the moolah and I sure wasn't gonna ask the folks to buy me one because as an adult, you are supposed to be financially independent of your parents! :smile: So I waited, hung around the forum, lusted over everyone's gorgeous paddy and then finally finally finally, I took the plunge this x'mas, deciding that I needed a x'mas perk me up after another hard year at work (and the price was right - Megs gave great advice :smile:). Some people say the paddy is passe (I think the other www guru, bagsnob.com did) but I thought (and still think) it's one of the most beautiful bags I have ever laid my eye upon. So what the hell right. :smile: Plus the fact that they are still producing it today and the fact that the whole Chloe forum is so alive, I think, is testament to the timeless nature of the paddy.

    All I can say is - the leather is so soft it's surreal, the weight hasn't gotten to me (whilst I was prancing around with it in my room that is). It's totally made my week. :smile: In fact, it's so precious that I haven't taken it out of my room since the day it arrived (Thurs). :love:

    I'll let the photos speak for themselves (the third photo shows the real colour).
