Meet the CHLOE Paddington aka the HARDEST bag to get this year. If you flip through the latest mags, only the hippest “it” girls (or whatever you wanna call trendsetters) have it. In fact, the Paddington bag in Blue Nuit is as difficult to find as the secret ingredient in coca cola. If you can’t get your hands on this must have color, you can settle for the chocolate (fab!), red (yummy!), camel (classic!), or electric cobalt blue (ick!). Net-A-Porter sold 376 bags in 36 hours and now has 700 names on their wait list. The other option is to go for the Silverado bag worn by secondary “B-list” girls like Jessica Simpson (we are being generous here with Jessica’s status after that trashy pajamas outfit she wore to the VMA’s).
Why do we love this bag? The leather is super slouchy and soft but ultra durable and scratch resistant. The medium size is functional for everyday and it’s perfect for a fun night of clubbing as well. The pockets on both sides are great for sliding in your cell phone and keys. The downside, it weighs in at a hefty three pounds! The lock alone is half a pound but the Paddington is just not the same without it so us fashion slaves will just have to look fabulous toting it straight to our chiropractors office.
