I'm new to Chloe--to be honest, I've never been a huge fan... Mainly because the Paddy is just so heavy! I can aesthetically appreciate them, just can't do the weight. So I'm curious about Chloe's quality. I really want this bag: I've put one on hold that looks good--the leather is nice, no flaws, etc. Just curious how the bags hold up as time goes by. Will the leather soften up? Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
