Hi guys: I just registered today to become a member at The Purse Forum after reading all the wonderful comments and suggestions you guys have made to people. I am a COMPLETE bag freak!!! I'd rather spend money on bags than on things like shoes or clothes! lol. I used to be a Louis Vuitton fanatic until like many people here, I came across Chloe!! I'm thinking about buying myself one as an EXTRA EARLY christmas present =D, but I don't know which one to buy. Should I buy - Chloe Paddington or - Chloe Edith? I was so envious of my friends when they had their paddingtons, and now that I can get one, I worry that it will be "out of trend." I know alot of people say that it doesnt matter if it's an "It" bag ten years from now if you love it, and I totally agree, but do you guys think it's too late to get the Paddington? Also, I've read alot of the threads here concerning the fact that the locks on paddington often get damaged! I'm a very low maintanence kind of girl due to my busy life style (I go to school fulltime and have a job), and I'm scared that if I were to get a Paddington, the lock will end up getting really scratched and ugly! As for the Edith, i ABSOLUTELY love it!! I love it in the Whiskey color, but I'm just worried as to how versatile it is.. I don't really like handbags that have to be handheld because I like just throwing something over my shoulder and off to do my 2380833 errands and tasks, but I have been reading some threads here and people have said that you CAN wear the Edith on the shoulder? I was thinking about getting the Medium sized one, so I'm not sure if it can still be worn on the shoulder? Sorry this thread is so long! Just want to get all of your opinions. Thanks so much for helping .
