Hello, fellow Chloe lovers! I recently went on vacation to Las Vegas with a very determined side mission in mind: to finally find my first and perfect Chloe. I've been on this SF for awhile now, poring through threads and threads of all your lovely photos and insightful comments. I was pretty dead set in my heart that I wanted a Marcie. Fast forward to this past week at the Chloe boutique in the Palazzo. Never had I been among so many Chloes in all their splendor... Marcies and Paratys galore... every size, current colors, upcoming colors, hobos, satchels, every variation currently available, literally! My head was spinning with options. Everything was so beautiful! But glistening on its own stunning but humble display table was this beauty... creamy, pebbled ivory leather, the perfect backdrop to striking, plentiful rose gold hardware, slouchy yet structured, breathtakingly feminine. I'd felt bag love before, but this was bag LOVE. It was a hard decision to tear away from my Marcie dream, but at the same time a no-brainer, really. In bags and in life, the heart wants what it wants! So without further ado, I present my Elsie Day Bag in Ivory with Rose Gold Hardware Ta-da! In love with this leather... So many pretty details... Optional, adjustable strap: Mod pics! On the arm: Long strap (can be worn crossbody too!): Thanks for letting me share, ladies! It's been such a fun bag year for me and my new Elsie is truly the icing on the cake. I am banning myself for the rest of 2012 to enjoy my recent beauties, this one most of all!
