Well my Chloe Ascot hobo in chocolate arrived and its wierd!!

  1. There are two thick straps that should be part of the shoulder strap however they are not attached. :huh: Not impressed with the quality, doesn't look like a expensive bag. The chocolate shade is pretty, not sure if its the same as the chocolate paddington.

    My pop-up blocker isn't allowing me to paste pics so here are some links to the pics

  2. I think you are making the right decision. You are not in love, and there are just way too many other bags out there to buy!
     
  3. Virgo, I see what you mean about the two straps. They do seem misplaced. I agree that you should return her!
     
  4. Yeah, those straps are just too odd. It's not meant to be with this bag, so return, and get something even better.
     
  5. Oh no, sorry to hear that Virgo.
     
  6. Oh no, I ordered this one too. It's on it's way...it doesn't look anything like the one the website..I wonder why those extra straps are there? I guess it's going straight back. I was hoping the leather was going to be really good quality, too. How disappointing!
     
  7. thats such a bummer cause the stock photo looks really nice.
     
  8. Wow, I would have never correlated the two as being the same bag! I totally agree with your decision. That doesn't look quite the same (at all) like the ad. I hate it when that happens. You get all worked up for a bag and then TOTAL LETDOWN!

    Return it and get something you love!

  10. ^BUMMER! What a disappointment!
    I have to admit it is VERY strange looking!LOL!
     
  11. Definitely a bag that looks better in pics! I mulled that one over for the longest time too and sooo surprised to see your pics. I had ordered a messenger/shoulder/something-or-other Chloe from Bluefly and it had so many weird auxiliary straps and carbiners than appeared in pics that it was the fastest bag to ever leave my presence for a refund. So sorry you are disappointed. Return and don't look back!
     
  12. The BG pic is SO cute! I considered this bag, too. I think the "extra" straps are supposed to connect to the shoulder strap via a keeper loop (see BG photo), but yours definitely does not have the same vibe going on. There will be other bags!
     
  13. Mine is coming in a couple of days so hopefully I won't be disappointed. Luckily, I've seen several Ascot totes (though not the hobo) so I know that the leather is not the same as the paddys and silverados. It's probably why the Ascot line is cheaper? I'm crossing my fingers on this one. :biggrin:
     
  14. I must confess that I got curious and ordered one of these bags too. And sorry if I offend anyone, but that thing is uglier than a hound dog's butt. :cry: :p I kinda feel sorry for the poor thing. :p It's going back ASAP!!!
