Hi CatHi ladies.
I am new here. I am planning on getting a Chloe bag. I like both Marci and Paraty. Which one in your opinion is nicer and which one is more practical. I appreciate your info.
Thanks in advance
Hello again Cat - is that a Coq Midday in your Avatar ? As I have the exact same one if it is. Great mind thinks alike ?Hi Cat
Welcome to Chloe - It is my most favourite brand (among Balenciaga, Mulberry,Prada etc) - the leather is tough, colour amazing and doesnt scratch easily and gets softer with use.
I bought two paratys - Cyclamen and Dove and sold both of them. Initially thought it was the colour of cyclamen - so I sold it and bought a neutral . Still wasnt right !Just didnt bond with them as the small opening of the bag bothered me. Dont get me wrong it's a beautifully structured bag which is feminine and hip. Can be dressed up or down.
Marcie on the other hand - practical but still a stunner to look at. I have the Small Satchel with strap ( in Tan ). I especially love the little pouch under the flap and is perfect for car keys or essentials as I hate rummaging around for keys. The leather is superb and doesnt scratch at all. The round handles are easier to wear on shoulders. I am wanting to expand my collection to the crossbody and large satchel. I am not familiar with the Hobo style so cant comment.
Good luck with your choice - whichever will be an excellent one ( as it is a Chloe - LOL). Look forward to your reveal!
Thank you so much. I read the post on the link you sent me and I think that maybe in the future I should get both styles. Now which one will be first depends on the colors. It is so difficult you see for me living in Greece to find Chloe bags. I have to order them from mytheresa.com and they don't have all styles in all colors. Thank you once more.Hi Cat. there was a great thread on Marcie vs Paraty http://forum.purseblog.com/chloe/marcie-vs-paraty-challenge-and-the-winner-is-711459.html
Love both styles, but Marcie is most practical for me. I wear my Marcies the most of all my bags, especially my black Hobo. I was just at Nordstrom yesterday and was telling the salesperson that I almost need to buy a backup black Marcie Hobo, just in case mine wears out one day. I love it that much. I can't imagine wearing it out, but you never know!I have had a Marcie Hobo in black for 4 months now and it is my most practical bag - besides being one of the most beautiful.
I just bought a week ago a large YSL Muse Two, which is beautiful too, but such a pain on an everyday basis...
