What a cool store! Nothing to indicate any gangster stuff. It was a high tech boutique just steps away from the Duomo. Lots of customers and the gals working there really seem to know their stuff. An what stuff it is! So much Chloe on display that I started to feel a little faint. Right away I spotted the purple patent Bay. Gosh is it a beautiful bag - large and sooo purple. At their price and at the exchange rate I would have had to pay around $2000 and then only get a 13% discount for the VAT. I couldn't bring myself to do it since I know that it will be available in the States for much less even at full retail. Anyway they also had it in a green patent that was devastating as well. Lots of new quilted Bays were displayed in new delicious colors like "Vermillion". I loved that shade of orangey red. And the Pigalle purple Bay was unbelievably gorgeous. I loved the round heel Chloe patent sandals for Spring/Summer. In the back of the store was the sale room and I wish I could set up camp there. Chloe boots and shoes in abundance on sale but none in my size. There were racks of patent quilted Bays and patent quilted Heloises. There was one regular Bay left on sale that I could see and it was a beautiful off white color - 30% reduction. My DH sat around waiting while I scoped everything out and he discovered a very cool fashionista laptop computer they had on sale for something like 13,000 Euros. That's a lot of money but boy was it cute - in a roundish shell covered in pink moc croc. Still - a lot of money... Do you think a Paddy wallet from them on sale is a good deal? They had a black patent one with a little lock and it was 30% off of 320 euros and then take off the VAT. What would that come to? - around $293 I think? I just don't know if this is worth it since Bluefly might be better. Then again - I would have my souvenir! Ciao babies!
