One Chloé calls for another

As I was ummming and ahhhing over this wallet at the Chloé store (it was a big decision!), something shiny caught my eye.

Isn't it pretty? It's like a puzzle waiting to be played with.

Then I looked at the rest of the bag and I liked it too! After some more ummming and ahhhhing it was added to the "shopping cart". And this Elsie shoulder bag is mine :-D

(click any photos in this post to see larger images)

The calf leather is a dream. It is unbelievably soft. And I just adore the turnlock, so beautiful, with an art deco vibe (which I love). Regular CCM readers know that I'm in a structured bag phase so this is right up my alley.

Even the lining of the bag is leather. How luxurious is that?

I had some reservations over the gold chain. I'm not much of a bling girl (diamond is excepted of course :-P) but this chain is not OTT, and I like that it is adjustable - double up to carry the bag on the arm or extend the chain to use as a shoulder bag.

I wonder if I'll look as chic as Sienna Miller?

So here are my Chloé double act side-by-side.

Pretty nice, n'est-ce pas?

My sister and I received lovely customer service from the sales assistant at Chloé, which made the purchasing decision that much easier to make :-)
Now, a poll on the next Hong Kong trip post. Would you like me to blog about:

(a) food
(b) make-up
(c) clothes, or
(d) more bags?


  1. Ahh, I love Elsie! I was going to buy a small evening bag in the Elsie design when I was last in HK but waited too long and it sold out the morning I went to buy it.

    It is stunning, love it, great purchase!

    Would love to hear about all your trip, but I can't go past bags. They're my weakness.

  2. Makeup! I want to hear about the makeup!

    I am sooo jealous of the Chloe bag it's BEAAUUUTTIFULL!

  3. What a gorgeous bag! The turnlock is stunning <3


    I am SO jelly that looks like the perfect buttery soft bag for summer.. I love it!!!


  5. The Chloe bag & wallet is really cute, Perfect shade of Pink!

  6. I <3 it !

    And I must say I love the new look of the blog, it's been awhile..

  7. So luxe <3 makes my heart beat faster <3 I vote clothes or makeup for next post :D

  8. Lovely buy! Haha I see what you mean about the puzzle - that would excite me too :D

  9. Hi are using Wordpress for your site platform? I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get
    started and set up my own. Do you need any html

  10. Browsing I noticed your site book-marked as: Blogger:
    Confessions of a Curious Mind. Now I am assuming you book marked it yourself and wanted to ask if social book-marking gets you a bunch
    of site visitors? I've been considering doing some bookmarking for a few of my websites but wasn't sure if it would yield any positive results.

    Many thanks.
