Hello everyone - my first post here although I have been a lurker for quite some time. I am about to buy my first Chloe bag and would very much like some help from those more knowledgeable than me! I like so many of the Chloe bags, the Heloise for example, but I have fallen in love with Paraty. Such a gorgeous design and so practical, being able to wear it on the shoulder or on the arm. I am so excited, but just don't quite know what colour or size to get. I have spent ages wandering around in Selfridges and Harvey Nichols here in the UK and getting more and more confused as to which would be best. My first question is regarding colour. Do Chloe tend to stick with the same available colours throughout the season, or do they sometimes bring out new colours which we weren't expecting? At the moment here in the UK I can only find black, chocolate brown or rock. But I really prefer the more unusual colours such as nutmeg, rosewood, pink beige, beige rose. I don't tend to buy very dark bags and usually go for a middle colour. I did see a lovely milk coloured Paraty but for a British winter I think sadly that may be impractical. My coats tend to be light grey or camel, not dark, and apart from black trousers and black boots in winter, all my clothes tend to be light and colourful. I'm not really a lover of black bags. I could import a Nutmeg from the USA but prices in the US already seem higher than the UK, and when you then add on shipping and British VAT and import duties, what was a £1000 bag if available in the UK suddenly seems to become £1400 or thereabouts when bought from the US. I have looked on the dreaded eBay but it's such a risk buying from there. I have sold a few genuine Mulberrys on eBay and bought one Mulberry, but it's so risky, and when spending the amount of money needed for a Chloe, even more of a risk! My second question is about the size of the Paraty. I believe there are two sizes - medium and large? I have seen both and just can't decide between them. The medium is much smaller than my current bags - to give you a clue I've been using a Mulberry Daria Hobo all summer, very large - and I'm not sure the medium would fit my iPad in it. On the other hand, the medium seems more in proportion than the large, looks much cuter somehow - and if I wanted to take my iPad out occasionally, perhaps I'd just use a different bag! Decisions decisions. Your thoughts would be so much appreciated, especially with regards to the colour as my head is spinning on that issue. I'm sorry for such a long first post!
