I owned a Plum Marcie since few years ago. I never think of Paraty before. To me, Marcie is more unique. Since there is no Chloe shop in my country, I also never have chance to try Paraty. Recently, I suddenly feel like trying Paraty. I ordered a Rock Paraty with sight unseen. It's a medium size. I just received it today. Oh well, I'm totally in love with it! It's not as heavy as I expected. I can wear it cross-body with no issue. The strap hang nicely also if I carry with the handle. It just fits all my bill. The only thing make me wonder is the color. It's not a very dark color. I initially thought it is as dark as black and it is more to brown color. However it's seems like a dark grey with khaki color undertone. I already have few black bags. But I feel that it's nicer in black color? How about licorice? I saw the photo, is it a nice and dark brown color? Should I exchange my rock paraty with either licorice or black color? TIA!
