I wasn't even going to open the box but who am I kidding? My DHL delivery guy was a gem (he must not have read the EVIL DHL DELIVERYMAN HANDBOOK) and caught me just rolled out of bed looking pretty slovenly. Who cares - right? Anyway - that's why I can't take any pictures now. I'm STILL not dressed having spent much of the day booking travel arrangements. But - here's the story: I actually like this bag a lot! Who woulda thunk it? It is not too big and it fits comfortably on the shoulder. The argent looks fairly charcoalish and there are already some scratchy lines showing but it just pops silver underneath - not dark stuff. I really like this bag - but there are few Chloes that I don't like once I see them in person. Mostly the size throws me off certain styles since I am so tall. SO what to do? I will keep the tag on. It has $2175.00 on it scratched out with $869 as the new price. I will hold on to it for a while until after the trip where I will have to see if a purple patent Bay becomes a reality. Nordstroms allows returns for a long time - tell me this is so!?
