I was at Nordstrom early last week looking through their latest shipment of paddys, and really wanting either a choco or whiskey paddy. My amazing SA happened to be working that night and managed to hunt down a whiskey paddy satchel at another store. I was SOOO excited and went ahead with my order. Fast forward just over a week later to yesterday. I got home late from work to find that my long-awaited package from Nordstrom had arrived!! I was ecstatic!! I took the package, but the box seemed really unusually small. I thought to myself, "Maybe they mistakingly sold me a mini paddy?? Must be because no one in their right mind would stick a paddy stachel in this box." Famous last thoughts. I got home and opened it ... only to discover that someone thought it cute that my lovely whiskey paddy should masquerade as a sardine. I know it's supposed to look slouchy and broken in, but the entire back and sides of the paddy had developed cellulite-looking creases in the leather from being crammed in the world's smallest box. Compared to my anthracite paddy, it looks like its ragged orphan sibling. The color is beautiful, but it definitely appears as though the leather creases won't be coming out any time soon. It just wasn't meant to be, and it will find its way back at Nordstrom. I wonder if this is a sign that whiskey may not have been the right choice??? Maybe I'lll take a little excursion on my lunch break to check out the chocos and whiskeys at the Chloe boutique. Do you wise ladies have any advice on which one I would get the most use out for both work and play?
