Hi ladies, I am a new member, this is my first post but I have learned SO much already from you all! Here's the question -- I have a still-evolving but nice bag collection, but so far no Chloe. I have yearned for a Paddington, but for a while just not in the budget, and now . . . could afford it but wonder if I am too old to carry one off! (early 40s) SUCH a beautiful bag (and viewing your amazing photos only made me want one more!) but don't want to look silly. I've figured out that I'm old enough to be the Mom of some of you, so what do you think, honestly? Most of my stash tends to be a tad more conservative (Tods/Anya Hindmarch/a little Chanel) but there's something about that smooshy Paddington leather that makes me feel I'm missing out! (The Ediths etc. are gorgeous but, for me, not as enticing). Should I join the hunt? Or act my age and admire from afar? Any thoughts appreciated, and thanks again for being such a great source of info.
